Good morning! Activity = Results seems to be the theme of the day. I just wrote a blog post for my other venture about this very topic. I felt like I needed to carry it over to real estate investing. The philosophy holds true in every business and especially in real estate investing. Consistent activity leads to success in every business. So, for the real estate investor out there, what are the activities that you need to engage in on a regular basis so you can succeed in your business?
Some of this is going to depend on your strategy. Are you a wholesaler, rehabber, buy and hold investor are you all of the above? Below is a list of activities, when done consistently, that will help you succeed:
- Networking – there are so many networking opportunities out there. Be open to different networking opportunities. Great deals come from the some unlikely places or groups. Yes, you want to come to the Boston AREIA upcoming events. But, go to other types of gatherings as well. Find a meetup for something you love to do, check out a BNI, go to a chamber meeting, get to know network marketers, they make it their business to know everyone and go check out their business if they invite you to a meeting, check it out, you may not be interested in the opportunity, but, you will get to meet a bunch of people who will happily refer a seller to you for a finder’s fee. :0) just sayin’
- Direct mail to get your phone ringing. Did you check out the webinar I did for Realeflow? I love this system and the deal they gave for our investors, check out the replay.
- Bandit signs – I’m not into it, but, it works
- Online marketing – I love this method, it’s important to be online, it creates credibility. My friend Tom Pacheco is doing a webinar on Wednesday night 4/20/2016 at 8pm about getting online and lead generation for your business.

The key to it all is to keep your energy and your activity high. I do that by knowing exactly what my WHY is. What is yours? Mine are my kids and providing them with the best life I possibly can. If you know your WHY, you will be motivated to be successful at whatever you put your mind to. Activity = Results!
I’m off to a meeting with an investor in a few minutes. I hope you all have a wonderful, activity filled weekend!
Keep smiling, the world needs more of that.
