Hello everyone, this is a little bit of a long blog post, but after this last month I just had with new people in my program I thought I should point this out because this is what I have noticed recently from new people getting involved with Meet The Mentor.
Real Estate Guru’s need to stop posting testimonial videos of “One Hit Wonders” if a brand new student gets lucky and makes $50k on their very first deal, wait before you start posting testimonials to prove your teaching materials actually work because any person can get LUCKY in this business. I got my first deal in less than 30 days, I got a testimonial video done on me and then after that it took 7 months to get my second deal…..but most people will not tell you these things and instead of posting videos on these people just to prove your programs value and then try to get more customers or students because of a testimonial video, try only posting videos of the students who are actually closing multiple deals per month and living off of their income from the business Vs the ones who just got lucky one time, that is setting up people with a false sense of hope and that is how you lose new people to other programs like mine at Meet The Mentor.
I met a brand new guy who made just over $100k on his first 4 deals in 60 days wholesaling, the Guru whose program he was a part of praised this guy up and down saying “You see folks you can do this too” well its been 2 years since I saw that video and we haven’t heard a word from the student who made that $100k, come to find out that they actually quit and spent the money on a brand new car, clothes, and a few trips for vacation and then stopped wholesaling all together….why not show a testimonial of that guy? new people need to see more of what happens to people once they get a deal done…do they keep going or do they flake out? if they plan to flake out will you step in and help them get straight? or will you just take credit and post videos about when they do well all because they stumbled upon your course and put it to work for a little while?…people deserve better than that in my opinion.
I actually quit a Guru’s program because I had real serious problems going on and the Guru told me that I should listen to Joel Osteen for my answers……..and that is when I went out on my own, Joel Osteen?…REALLY?…..how is that guy going to help me sell more real estate?…..nice Guru I had huh? and that was the day I set out to create a program for people just like me, I wanted answers, I wanted help but better help than what I was getting and all I got was “Listen to the videos” or “Go through the modules” I hate to say it folks but not all of you can make it on just that system alone and because I’m just like many of you in that regard, I needed more one on one help and then I found it.
Brand new wholesalers, trust me when I tell you this……once you get your first deal closed…..put it to work, don’t spend the money on stupid shit, put that money to work for you. I keep getting people to sign up for my mentor program that are from other Guru’s programs and the #1 complaint I keep seeing is that there is no real interaction with the Guru, they will sell you stuff and want you to be at the meetings and seminars, but they will hardly ever reach out to you one on one and help you and for most brand new people who are not good at sales yet…..that is what they need. I understand the platform, I myself use to have my own seminars back in my Amway days and I sold books and tapes and videos to all of my down line, but telling people that they can just do this business is wrong, its a hard business, a smart business, a mental testing business, and if you are not getting the kind of teaching you need well then chances are you will quit once you make some money like most of these other people and then what? you are back to square one all over again.
Sales is hard….real estate is hard….getting leads is a science, closing deals is a skill, you need to develop into the type of person who can live this life (does that make sense) if you play around with this thing, you will get burned, lose money, and then hate it. So one last time Guru’s…pay more attention to your people, because I just signed up 24 people into my mentor program last month from other Guru’s programs all because the students are not getting the education they deserve especially for what some of you Guru’s are charging them to learn it from your courses, most of the stuff they get charged for they can learn for free and they didn’t believe me until I showed them in person that this was indeed the case…selling free info is for suckers!….don’t be a sucker!
Times are changing people, new wholesalers want the same success we all seem to enjoy and yet not many people are willing to actually help them, instead you tell them to follow you on Twitter, or watch your videos, or sign up for your materials to learn from, then if they get a deal done you jump all over them and get a video testimonial going to prove that your system is so great! Try talking to these people one on one more often, it boosts their confidence and makes them feel more secure about trying to make this business work for themselves otherwise you are only doing what everyone else is and that is just trying to make money off of people who you know already will not make it and you don’t care because the memberships and sign ups costs for a Guru’s program are so high that in the end as long as money is coming in you are happy….I get it, I understand it, but I don’t have to agree with it either because I did the same shit years ago and decided that I could do better in my approach to help people Hence the name Meet The Mentor…students get to actually meet me and we hang out and we talk about business and problems they have, I like it this way much better.
I personally like what Karl Krentzel has been doing in the realm of real estate sales training, he does “LIVE” sales on Periscope for new people, then he invites you in once again “Live” to talk with him personally and discuss things you may have questions on, and I know this because I have been a part of these “LIVE” sessions and to me Karl is way ahead of all the Guru’s simply because he is not ignoring his followers but instead including them into his lessons and he teaches them on the spot Vs just having them sign up for stuff and hoping for the best.
Oh and if you read this blog and you feel stuck in your wholesaling business….I’m not hard to find…let’s get to work and see how we can make you some money in the world of real estate Vs you being frustrated about Yellow Letters, PPC Ads, and whatever else is pissing you off right now because its not working like the Guru’s said it would…..Oh and I am not charging money for this program either, if I want money I’ll go make some on my own Vs charging people to learn free info from me like most are doing.
