From the desk of Todd Heitner:
“Can you relate to the pain I felt?”
I hated talking to leads on the phone. Initially it was mainly because I lacked experience and didnâ€™t feel confident. There were times I’d get pain-in-the-butt leadsÂ that didn’t want to give me any information and were skeptical and they would drain all my energy and I didn’t want to call any more leads, even though I knew there had to be some really good ones.
But after a while, what I hated about talking to leads on the phone was that it was so repetitive, asking the same questions over and over again. I felt like it was a waste of my time because, realistically, I knew most of them wouldnâ€™t result in a deal. And my time was really limited because I was just trying to get into real estate investing part time while running another business.
What reallyÂ hurt wasÂ knowing I was leaving money on the table. Â
I knew that every day there are people searching online for a solution to their real estate problems that I could help them with (and profit, of course), but I had no way to tap into all those potential leads and let them find me.
To do that,Â I wouldÂ need to have multiple websites. Â At the very least, one for buyers and one for sellers. Â I realized itâ€™s important not to have everything on one website because then sellers will click around and see your exit strategy and see how much youâ€™re making off deals and scare them off. But having multiple websites can get expensive and complicated to maintain.
On top of that, I knew that to do it right, I should be putting leads on a mailing list and send them follow-up emails automatically because that would automate things and I knew realistically I wouldnâ€™t stay on top of following up at the right times and good leads would fall through the cracks. But that would mean signing up for an e-mail marketing system, and most of those start at about $20/month, which meant another expense every month and another system to learn.
I thought, â€œThere has to be a better way!â€Â
But I couldn’t find one, not unless I wanted to pay a thousand dollars or more for some â€œsystemâ€ with all kinds of bells and whistles I didn’t need. Â I talked to other investors who said they needed the same things, and I even got some good ideas from the more experienced ones.
I set out to build a better real estate investor website.
To be honest, it was a bigger job than I realized. Â I ran into lots of obstacles. Â I have to admit, my first couple attempts were pretty embarrassing. Â It actually took me a couple years to get to where I was happy with it, but I finally built something that solved all these problems!

Well, one of the tough things is to get sellers to trust you because their house is probably the biggest investment of their life and they donâ€™t know you. So you have to make a good first impression. Â I spent a lot of time building a website for motivated sellers that looked really professional and attractive. Â I could send sellers there first and let my website make a good impression for me. Â It included a Frequently Asked Questions page that answered a lot of the common questions sellers would have, which would save me time.
But the main focus was to get sellers to contact me. I realized not all of them would feel comfortable giving me all their details initially. So I created a free report that would educate them on how I could help them. To get it, they had to give me their name and email, which went to me, of course. So that way I still had at least some way to contact them. But where I really tried to direct people was to the full lead capture form that includes all the information I need to know about their property.
I made this really awesome lead capture form that I was really proud of. Â I showed it to my wife and she said, â€œItâ€™s too long! Â Itâ€™s going to scare people off.â€
That wasn’t what I wanted to hear. Â I said, â€œBut I need all the
