In the super-competitive real estate market, Realtors need every advantage they can get.
Don't you hate it when a potential client that you spoke with months ago, buys or sells their home... and uses another agent?
Imagine, for a minute, that you had the undivided attention of your ideal prospect. And not only that, you were talking in their ear on a weekly basis. Maybe, they aren't ready to sell their home or buy a new one this week, but what about next week, next month, next year.
If you can remain top-of-mind with your clients and position yourself as the "One and Only" Realtor for them to turn to, regardless of when they decide to buy or sell, what would that do to your business?
Everyone has a smartphone. Everyone in your farm could be listening to your online radio show or Podcast.
What is a Podcast? It is audio or video shows, that when you subscribe to them, are automatically updated on your Computer, Smartphones, iPads, Tablets, and/or iPods. Think of them as free radio or TV shows which you deliver Spam-Free! directly to your audience every time you produce one.
Podcasting is bigger than you think. When we survey people who listen to free, commercial-free audio Podcasts at least once a month: we discover an interesting fact: It beats AM/FM Radio, streaming audio, CD's, TV Music channels, & Sirius!
If you compare the number of people listening to Podcasts monthly, they are as popular as Twitter with 39 mIllion listeners, even if it doesn't get the same 'Respect'.
But instead of communicating in impersonal 140 character Tweets, with Podcasting, you get right into the head of your target market for as long as you talk.
Podcasts are portable — and because of this, they are listened to everywhere... in the car, walking the dog, at the gym, at the beach, on a plane, anywhere.
When you claim your seat in this course, you'll have permanent online access to watch the course 24/7, and there's a Q&A discussion section by each lecture, where you can post questions - and we'll answer them personally!
By following the short, simple, easy-to-follow lectures, you will be able to work through the process of setting up your show and publishing your first episode quickly.
Podcasting is increasing in popularity, and thanks to CarPlay, Google jumping on Podcasts and Apps, Podcast will continue growing for years to come. It is just past the 'Early Adopter' stage and has huge potential moving forward. Don't miss out on the low-competition, high-demand opportunities that your fellow Real Estate Podcasters are enjoying.

A little about me...
As a full-time real estate investor and licensed agent I transacted over 75 deals in two years. I've owned and manged an apartment building 10 minutes north of Atlanta, GA. I've analyzed a 150 storage unit complex (I didn't buy it, it's really a retail business) and I've negotiated commercial leases for my accounting and tax business. I've owned and managed 5 retail stores with over 40 employees doing 300K - 500k in revenue in just 3 short months. I've raised over a million dollars from private investors for business ventures. I once raised a quarter of a million dollars in 24 hours with only 7 phone calls. My marketing and fund raising tactics got me on CNN and national news outlets my graduating year at Michigan State University.
