Wholesaling - Turnkey Online Marketing Business

3 Replies

Hello Fellow BP Members,

I wanted to get people's opinions on a new business venture I've been thinking about.  I've been listening to a number of the BP Podcasts and am noticing a common thread for Wholesalers and people looking for Flips.  That finding leads is obviously a tough thing to do and requires a ton of marketing time and effort.  My background is in online marketing, and I was wondering what people think about a 'Turn-Key Online Marketing offering for Flippers and Wholesalers.'  The idea would be to provide a website (for those that don't have one yet) and setup adwords, facebook, craiglist, etc accounts to get leads funneled to the client's website.  I wouldn't do any of the qualifying of leads, I would leave that to the Flipper/Wholesaler, but they would pay for the leads driven to their website.  I would think this would be an easy way for people without much online experience the ability to start their real estate investing business with an online presence.

Is anyone aware of a business like this already in existence?  I've found companies that do something like this for real estate agents, but not for investors.  Do any of you feel as though investors would use a service like this?

Thanks in advance for any ideas/feedback you can offer!

Most people who are legit in offering turnkey already have a website.  Most small time wholesalers dont have the ability to run a turnkey operation and a lot of them are fine with that as they flip the homes to us for a profit and then their done.  Most people looking for TK wont deal with a wholesaler.  

The other questions is how would you charge for the service?  

Im not saying its not a bad idea, just not sure how that would work. 

I like the creative thinking!!!
