$500 Active Rain Marketing Challenge

Services for Real Estate Pros with Immediate Home Solutions & U.S. Financial Funding, LLC

This is my entry into Active Rain's contest on spending $500 on your marketing budget.  I am not an agent or in real estate in a direct way.  My company finds money for people that had real estate.

If you would like to win $500, go to www.activerain.com/real-estate-marketing and do it today, because it is the last day to enter.

This is what I intend to do:

I have checked out numerous CRM's that are semi-customizable and haven't found anything that can really come close to what I need for my business, but have heard about a new system being developed which will do what is needed to help run my type of business, which is Asset Recovery.

Cost: $79 per month

Phone system to run business, which runs my office and can be worked through my computer of smart phone

Cost: $59 per month

Better Business Bureau designation

Cost: $30 per month

Mailing out of letters and postcards

Cost: $125 per month

There are other costs, however, they are not marketing.

I would like to look into spending the balance of the monthly $500 budget on a Virtual Assistant so that I may get my business to the next level.

I really enjoyed this contest.  It was an interesting exercise, that helped to bring clarity as to what & where marketing dollars are/should be going.  Also how much it cost to do this business effectively.

Jeffery hope you had a wonderful 4th and a 5th today. I find these have been thought provoking post but only a few with any new twist, so the traditional things are still working as far as I can tell.
