Lying awake at 3 AM with nothing to do except watch the countless infomercials strewn on every cable channel. A gentleman wearing a neatly pressed three piece suit is emphatically explaining how he made a gazillion dollars with little to no effort. He continues that he will share his secrets with you for only ‘three easy payments of $39.99.’ Wondering if the claims could be true, you cannot seem to take your eyes away, nor change the channel. It is as if you are in a trance and his every word is more and more mesmerizing. You know in your gut that the claims are probably only partially accurate but you think about all the lavish things you could buy if it were true and how nothing is successful without risk. You hear your gut screaming that something isn’t quite right; especially after seeing the infamous “special offer” cutting at least one payment and free expedited shipping.
Assistants can offer many services to real estate investors
I’ve found that most real estate virtual assistants are used to supporting realtors as opposed to real estate investors. However, it’s easy for them to transition their skills to support us.

I have been using postcards in marketing my real estate investing business. Recently, I’ve started doing every door direct mail. So what is Every Door Direct Mail? This is a service by USPS wherein your postcards are sent to reach every home and every address. You just pick the delivery routes and USPS will drop it off. You don’t even have to know the names and addresses of people. How cool is that? This is a great way of finding more customers and letting them know of your real estate investing business.
