About Movieman303
Joined November 2012
Hi,
I'm Bob Sheffield, I live in Corpus Christi, Texas. I have been dabbling in Online Marketing for about 3 years now, or since I retired. I also work in Real Estate flipping houses. I am working on a book to teach others how to do this. It will be called The Real Estate Scout.

I have a degree in marketing, but spent the last 30 years driving a truck. My education has helped me a lot over the years, as I would buy up businesses that were going under, build them up, and then sell them. But my education is of very little help in Online Marketing. I'm Hoping WA will help me combine the TWO. Their Online Marketing Education, and My OffLine Marketing Education.

Here is something I will pass on to you!

You can sell ANYTHING, if it is Marketed right, and ANY BUSINESS, can be a success, if it is managed right!

Well done. I have to say I am not a gardener but I did click through and thought it is a good site, although the bugs are a little gross, but I guess they all have a purpose. Are you considering monetizing this site?
Reply
Yes, as Affiliate Marketing. But I am going to let the site run without any type of monetizing till it gets ranked & I get a good traffic flow. I don't want people to think I am out to sell to them. It is just an INFO site, then I will solwly bring in the Affiliate sales, after I win the trust.

I would like to get into real estate, but rather than flip houses, I'd like to have rentals. I think in terms of creating assets, thus cash flow, not flipping where that does create income, but does little for tax reduction is little more than one-time cashing in. I would like to get to the point where I'm able to purchase property at least once a year and let the renters pay the mortgages. I'm learning about this now. I know it isn't as easy as that LOL, but picking up more on this through several sources that seem to be saying basically the same thing.

I am interested in your book. I would like to see what you have.
Reply
Well I only have the first chapter done so far. The reason I went with flipping is because of a bigger audience. There are a lot of people out there who want to get into Real Estate, but don't have the money to do so. This book will show them in detail how to make $2,000-$5,000 per flip, without using their own money. How much they make really depends on the house, and how mush PreQualifying you do for the investor you find the house for.

The book is quite detailed, so it will take some time to complete. I have a list of others on here that have expressed interest in the book also, so I will include you to the list. Thanks for your interest Daniel.

Willow tech, the only thing harder than having a heart of stone with staff, is making yourself do the work here, even when you don't feel like it.

You need to plan to put in as much time as you can on WA, while you have the TWO jobs. Then when you start with WA full time, keep your days to about 8 hours, with week-ends off. Take breaks, and lunch, just like you would at your other job. Don't get burned out.

Check out my blog (Backward Goal Setting), it might help. Good luck to you, and remember we are all here to help.

Lisa, thanks for the kind words. I have never built a website with wordpress before so I'm sure I will need a lot of help when I get to that point.

As far as fliping houses I will be sure to let you know when I finnish the book.

Thanks Carson, I have not done much since joing but get familiar with what is offered, and work on the courses.

I'm hoping my experience with Offline Marketing can be incorperated in to Online Marketing. But so far Online Marketing seems much more involved.

But your training is very good. I hope to get more involved soon.

Hi Bob, Offline and Online marketing share many fundamentals. In the online world of Marketing your job is to connect people with products. You do this using your website as the root of your business! You've been very active today at WA and it's great to see you networking with others. The more people that you interact with, the more people that you can look to for help when you've got questions! Kyle and Myself are always available to help out too, so ask anything you like :)
