I have... Like Tony the Tiger would say.... ITTTTSSSS GREEAAAT!

Awesome. Thanks Brent. 

Are you still engaged in the business? How have the results been in 2017? 

Do you focus on areas around you or can you do this from afar? I live in San Francisco, brutal market here for newbies.

yes, still in the businesses.  I have done very little marketing in 2017 for various reasons but I have a great corporate gig that has me handcuffed.  I focus on areas around me but am getting ready to start in some surrounding states.  Consistency is the key...don't overthink it.  Whatever marketing you can afford, do it over and over and over, follow up , follow up and follow up, talk to people every day about what you do, ask for referrals...simply put keep your funnel full and when you get leads in your funnel make sure you follow up quickly and consistently and demonstrate to them the value you bring and how you can help solve their problem.

@Ernesto Hernandez I strongly recommend you don't invest on DMM until you take the silver program. I lost 4 grand investing on DMM here in Dallas targeting the wrong zip codes. The silver program is only $297 . It has great info about how to get started and setting up your mail campaign. it is definitely worth every penny. I might start the gold program soon. 

Hi @Ernesto Hernandez its funny because I think there is an Ernest Hernandez already in the program. @Brent Hill 's thread is great and has some of my thoughts.

Bottom line is the gold program has a wealth of knowledge for a reasonable price but as with most coaching programs or life in general you need to take action and keep yourself motivated. The "accountability coaches" will give you advice on calls and ask Michael if they don't have the answer but they won't crack the whip if you slack off

It was better when Michael did the q&a calls himself but he has so many enterprises going I understand that isn't possible. James is good but doesn't have the decades of knowledge MQ does.

@Brent Hill

When you put out your first mailer, did you have to state that you were a Realtor somewhere on the mailer?

@Ramon Purifoy   Sorry for the slow response..been in process of moving to NC and getting licensed here as well.  No, but once we have phone conversations I disclose and it is definitely on the contract.

I have and would be happy to share my experience from earlier this year. DM me and we can connect.

Has anyone in atlanta , GA been through the program? 

My business partner and I signed up for the Gold Program- Total cost around $20k. We had high hopes based off previous BP threads and listening to him on the podcasts.

The program started off well enough, holding trainings and review calls early on, but around the second month we started experiencing communication issues with our mentor.

As time went on, we began to get a bit worried about the lack of leads and results. Virtually, zero leads. We expressed these concerns numerous times throughout the program, looking to re-strategize the territories we were marketing to, but were instructed time and time again to stay with the course.

When we reached 3 months, half-way through the program, we had zero real leads and major communication issues(comically poor responses from the team) to the point my business partner completely opted-out and I took over. He was so frustrated at the lack of communication he gave up to focus on other projects.

Sad to say we experienced last minute cancellations a number of times, when we did have review calls scheduled, it was if no one had any idea that we were even clients- blissfully unaware of any aspects of our program.

Our program has recently ended, and as I write this today we are still experiencing the same dismal communication. I have been trying to schedule a recap meeting, and give the team a chance to explain and hopefully make things right, but it’s like pulling teeth trying to schedule any appointments with James(sales rep) and Michael.

We had requested to speak with Michael numerous times, or have him review our program, to hopefully provide a bit of reassurance- as we did drop ~$20,000 hard-earned dollars into the program, but we are still waiting-not holding our breath.

To boot, we have numerous charges that hit our account post-contract. Trying to get these corrected has been a fight as well.

This was our truthful experience with the program. Always two sides to every story, so please do all your own research. Being in the marketing field myself, I will be the first to say there are no guarantees, but as I verbalized to the team throughout our program it’s about setting proper expectations from the beginning.

Our synopsis - We closed zero deals, and virtually no leads, and spent $20,000 to create more work and frustration for ourselves. I am working with my attorney at the moment, will keep everyone updated as to how it all plays out.

I do hope everyone has better results and happy hunting!
