I’ve been up since 9am and it is now almost 5pm.? I haven’t left the bed for anything but to eat breakfast and lunch.? Sounds pretty lazy, right?? I know it does, however I have my laptop here with me.? I love this thing, it goes everywhere I do.? Since I behind a desk behind a computer for 40 hours a week at my 9 to 5, I refuse to do so otherwise.? If someone where to see me when I claim to be working, they would dispute the fact.? I mean, I’ll be laying on the couch with this thing, in the bed, on the floor, it’s the best!? I have desktop computer, but rarely use it for everyday computing.? I actually only use it to run some automated web 2.0 stuff, that I’ll post about some other time.
Anyway, I spent 7 hours yesterday sitting outside at the Coffee shop.? And I don’t even drink Coffee.? I don’t get the big craze over coffee by the way.? It’s bitter, hot and just plain nasty.? But, on the other hand I love beer, and I’m
sure some people have similar thoughts about it.? They’re both acquired tastes’ I guess.? But back to the point.? I spent alot of time at the coffee shop and did some research on two properties that I think I’m going to go ahead and put offers in on.? I know a requirement to successful investing is the abundance of submitted offers.? So I need to step my game up, in this aspect.? All the research performed yesterday on my farm area has given me a better understanding of what property values are in certain areas.? And I have got to go on another tangent before I leave this topic!? But coffee shops…people.? Why didn’t anyone tell me about the eclectic customers these places attract.? And I’m not talking about your local Starbucks, I think the franchises are neutral.? If you don’t know what I’m talking about, next time you want to get some work done outside of the house, go to your locally owned coffee shop.? You know the one where the girl behind the register has those plug earrings and her coworker has a tattoo sleeve.? Then just people watch and eavesdrop every few moments you break from reading or typing.? You’ll see.? Diversity is good but DAYUM!? And to think I thought I was liberal.? Maybe I’m not by just by comparison.? Nevermind me if all of this makes no sense.
Back to BiggerPockets.com guest-contributor post.? Therefore, I brainstorm everyday about what to contribute.? I have a great idea for next week, it perhaps will need to be a two-part post.? But it will concern the usage of Yahoo Pipes for real estate leads.? Yahoo Pipes can be used with Twitter, it can also be used with CraigsList.? I’ll save the details for the post.? So be sure to check it out.? Also, aside from little ole’ me, there are some fantastic contributors on that blog.? I suggest that you add it to your RSS feed reader, I learn at least two new tidbits from that blog every week..? I feel pressured to perform weekly on my
I just had a text exchange with the Mahomet property owner, who I provided with the internet marketing service (CraigsList, Twitter, Cars.com, YouTube, etc.).? He said that he is getting far more calls about his BMW that he has for sale over his house.? So, although Mahomet, Illinois isn’t necesarily a city that people across the nation know about, please help me broadcast to more people about his property for sale.? This place is awesome!? If you Tweet (which you should be anyway), please retweet one of my tweets about it (I am user “@schwaps“) or just tweet this link: http://bit.ly/qx0VZ
I thank you in advance.
If you checked out the link, you’ll see the illusion of the embedded YouTube video on CraigsList!? If one more person asks me for a marketing video, I’m definitely going to find some UofI students to subcontract the work to, perhaps film students.? They shouldn’t cost much and the end product should be better and it will take alot less of my time and effort.
Welp, that’s it for now.? I’m going to watch some TV online and then pump out a few offers.? I’ll keep yall posted.
If you have a self-hosted WordPress Blog, you need to get the Zemanta Plug-In.? I discovered this while guest-blogging on Josh’s site.? This plugin does all of the work for you when it comes to tagging and finding appropriate imagery to spruce up your post.? Highly recommend it.
