Course Description

Here's the trouble with Craigslist: 97% of the Real Estate listings are GARBAGE.

If you've ever tried to find a good deal on Craigslist then you already know what I mean.

With that being said, there are still amazing Real Estate deals to be had. However, you need a systematic way of sifting out the overwhelming JUNK in order to reveal the few opportunities that are real GEMS.

It's that unique and valuable ability that my simple system will provide you with.

As Real Estate Entrepreneurs, our businesses are entirely dependent on a steady stream of quality of incoming leads. Without leads - our business dies. Still, there is a very important factor that most people miss out on:

There's a balance between QUALITY and QUANTITY that effects your results dramatically.

Here's what I mean -

  • HIGH Volume of LOW Quality Leads = Bad. Inefficient. Dangerous. A Trap.
  • LOW Volume of HIGH Quality Leads = Good. Efficient. Profitable. Freedom.

You see, it's very beneficial to focus on a smaller pool of leads that will provide you with greater opportunity to profit. As a result, you make MORE money with LESS effort.

I can show you how to build a simple system that will give you a steady supply of HIGH-QUALITY leads from Craigslist, with full-automation, and FREE to maintain.

Using the power of Craigslist and a few other (little known) unique tools, I can show you how to build a simple system that will screen out all the junk, and provide you with top-notch Real Estate leads from the most motivated sellers.

Once your system is built, you can sit back and enjoy a supply of deals that consist of of only the very best available in your market. This course will save you time, make you money, and allow you to focus on only the very best leads in your area.

Section 1: Course Overview

The full system consists of 3 separate components that all work together to produce high-quality Real Estate leads.

You'll be setting up and mixing together the functionality of a Google Account, Craigslist, and a website called

It takes each of these components working in a very specific way in order to produce Real Estate leads that can be effectively used to make money as an investment.

In this video, I'll explain each of these 3 critical components, and show you how they all cooperate to provide you with a never-ending stream of high-quality Real Estate leads.

Section 2: Setting Up The Required (Free) Accounts

In this lecture, I'll show you how to create a Google account that will be to store and organize all of the incoming leads that are being produced by your lead-generating system.

This Google account will also play a critical role in screening all of the income leads that are being produced within the system.

For now, all you have to do is set up a completely new account. This account will be used for nothing other than your lead-generating system.


In this lecture, I'll show you how to create a account that will be the "lead-farm" for all of your incoming leads.

Section 3: Bring In The Leads Using
09:30 is an obscure website that not many people have heard about. It's got some really handy functionality that is exactly what we need to bring together Craigslist and Gmail in order to process all those leads. is the secret ingredient that will allow your system to scrape away the JUNK leads so that all you will be left with are the ones that you can turn into money.

In this lecture, I'll show you how to create targeted "recipes" within

How To Build Detailed Or Broad Search "Recipes"

Here, you will find a list of strategic keywords that can be used in setting up your recipes. These keywords re the result of a decade of learning what keyword are often used by motivated sellers who are posting their house for sale.

Each keyword is used to create a recipe. In other words, if you want to capture leads for 50 different keywords, you will need to create 50 individual recipes within

Section 4: Clean & Scrub The Leads Using Goggle Filters

Another really cool thing we can do to further enhance our results is to use the filter system within your GMail account to really scrub and clean up the results that sends your way.

Think of it this way: brings the leads in, then Google Filters scrub and clean the leads further.

In this lecture, I'll show you how to take advantage of GMail's filter system to further refine your incoming leads.

Section 5: The End-Result Of Your Real Estate System

Once your system is built and tuned the way you want it to be, you will be able to enjoy a never-ending stream of incoming Real Estate leads that are pre-screened to be a close match to the kind of Real Estate deals you are looking for.

Section 6: Thinking Big Picture

Leads don't do you any good unless they are effectively processed and turned into bonafide Investment Opportunities.

There are some things you can do to boost your results, or even remove yourself from the process altogether.

In this lecture, I'll talk about how to best leverage your automatic lead-generating system.

Instructor Biography

Ben Clardy, Coach & Teacher For Entrepreneurship & Real Estate

Hi there!

My name is Ben Clardy. I'm a Real Estate / Online Entrepreneur, but I'm a teacher at heart.

I'm serious about building and growing my own businesses, and I'm also highly passionate about helping other people reach their goals.

I enjoy helping other people. I think it's because I know how difficult it can be to make big things happen - especially financially, which seems to be an area where many of us can use the most help.

Personally, I have a great deal of knowledge about both Real Estate - with a specific focus on the strategy of wholesaling. That's where my expertise is - mostly because it's what I've been doing the longest.

I've been in business for myself for over a decade, and I have no intent of ever going back to a 9-5 job - or working for someone else for that matter. Once you've had a taste of the freedom that Real Estate can provide, I'm sure you'll feel the same way!

So, currently I'm a full-time Real Estate Investor. When I'm not closing a Real Estate deal, I'm usually teaching other people how they can do the same!
