The Real Estate Fisherman

Many experts agree with me that what I’m about to share with you is one of the key lessons to understand if you want to capitalize on more new real estate investing opportunities and be even more successful as a real estate investor. If you’re looking to make more money and do it by actively investing (the kinds that take “leg work”), then this article about new real estate investing opportunities, new real estate investing techniques, and new real estate investing strategies is for you.There’s tons of information out there about “how to invest in real estate”.Some good.Some bad.Some really bad.But if you want to find the best new investing opportunities, no matter what you choose to learn and apply…don’t make the mistake of going at it with a narrow mind and narrow business model.You need to keep an open mind for all possibilities if you don’t want to miss out on new real estate investing techniques.What do I mean by that?Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that ‘focus’ is not essential to your success in real estate investing. Focus is absolutely essential.I mean that you never want to limit yourself. You never want to be so focused on one part of real-estate that you miss out on the fortunes to be made by expanding your model and discovering and applying new investing strategies.All too often you will see people go out and focus on how they can make money and how they can make the most out of a deal or how they can do this or that.They stay focused on themselves.It’s NOT selfishness….just narrow-mindedness.What is even worse is that they only focus on one type of deal, they only learn how to structure a certain type of transaction. So now they are, for example, searching high and low for a seller and a buyer that fit a very narrow set of criteria- and ONLY that scenario.While they are waiting for the “right fish” all other deal scenarios they come across, those that a successful and knowledgeable investor could take and turn a profit from by solving a problem for one or two parties involved…are missed out on!That’s one reason why so many new real estate investors fail.They’re waiting to catch the fish that comes to take the only bait they have.They just don’t have that many resources at their fingertips; they just don’t know how to help people very well because they aren’t focused on how to do that – they stay focused on themselves.Many others fail because they are so focused on landing the “big one” that all the fish waiting to be snapped up never even get noticed.They never notice all the opportunities around them!If you don’t want to miss out on all the investing opportunities around you, do this: don’t focus on the fish; focus on your tackle box.What do I mean by that?You should be able to put deals together, help people and make money regardless of the situation.If you want to become more effective as an active investor, you need to focus on building your investing tackle box.With your tacklebox in place you are more prepared. Your increased awareness, expanded capabilities, and specialized problem-solving knowledge will help you begin catching all the new investing opportunities and deals that are ALREADY all around you!Because I promise you…they are!You want to be able to help each and every person you come across, not just victims of circumstance. You can help those people too and, but you need as many lures in your tackle box as possible.You want to be the person everybody comes to when they need results.When people need you, then you can really make things happen. There’s no shortcut here; you must help people and provide everybody that deals with you incredible value.When you understand the techniques and methods to help people (buyers, sellers, lenders, banks, tenants, real estate agents, the credit-challenged, homeowners in distress etc) you’ll be able to make money hand over fist.Why?Fish return to the spots where they feel comfortable and get fed- and if you haven’t noticed, they bring their friends and swim in groups.Be the fisherman who knows how to give them what they want and need, and where to find them will be easy- they will find YOU.And with your investing tacklebox, with its many baits, lures, and hooks, you’ll be ready for any scenario that comes your way.If you decide to go this route and get more actively involved investing in real estate, it’s going to take some time and energy. It’s going to take focus. But it’s going to take an open mind to new opportunities too!The good news is that the resources you need to put in your real estate investing tackle box have already been laid out for you.Check out the download now section of the Real Deal Community website for some great no cost resources to do just that…

What’s A Resource Box? (And How Does It Benefit Your Content Marketing?)

You’ll find a lot of articles you come across online contain an area at the very end where the author provides some brief bio information along with one or two links the reader may find helpful. This area is essentially a resource box (sometimes also called a ‘bio box’), where the author provides potentially useful ‘resources’ to people who read the article in question.Depending on the site you’re adding content to, you may be able to link a word or phrase to a site, rather than just a straight link or URL. This is known as ‘keyword linking’.So how does it apply to content marketing?For most forms of content marketing, you get the benefit from the content by linking back to your website, or other web properties that benefit you in some way (for example, one of your social media presences through which readers of your content can connect with you and/or find out more about you).For article marketing, you do this via the resource box. Article directories for example generally provide a specific field for your resource box, usually limiting the number of characters you can enter to something like 450. The format of such ‘free reprint articles’ consists of the title, the article body, and then the resource box at the end – just like the article you’re reading here.You’ll find a very similar approach with guest posting. If you have an opportunity where another blog posts your content as a ‘guest blog’, you may benefit from links back to your site or related web properties from within the blog itself and/or a ‘bio’ or resource box section at the end of the post.This often consists of a profile picture of the author, some brief information about them, and again links back to one or more of the author’s web properties. Ideally, such links usually represent resources that would be of interest and potential benefit to someone who was interested enough in the content to read it.Relevance is key in order to ensure your resource box benefits you in your content marketing activities. There’s little point providing content about your love of ice hockey (which would attract readers similarly interested in the sport), but then in the resource box linking back to your site(s) relating to hosting providers. You’d be far better providing content that would be of interest to those looking for hosting providers – for example, key factors to be aware of.The same principles apply to other aspects of content marketing.For example, if you’re creating a video for YouTube, to ensure it benefits your business you would ensure those watching are aware of how they can find your website (eg. providing your URL at the bottom of the screen, or perhaps at the start and end of the video), and then also provide a link to your site within the video’s description. You’d also make it clear how visiting the site could benefit the watcher.Again, you’d want to attract people specifically interested in your site, and so would make your content relevant to their interests.As a business, to attract people interested in what you have to offer, your content has to be of interest to them and them alone. It will then benefit you for years to come. People will find the content for example via web searches. They will read it, find further resources that interest them, clicking through to your site where they’ll have the opportunity to further their relationship with you. For a proportion of those clicking through, the relationship will result at some point in a sale for your business.
