Carrot vs Biggerpockets ProLeads

15 Replies

I know there may be bias in the response. But, I figured i'd ask anyways. So a couple days ago I signed up for my first leadgen website creator on carrot.com, but I recently watched the biggerpockets webinar about Biggerpockets proleads, How would you say the 2 compare? I love everything about bigger pockets so i'm sure its a great product. But it's also a greater investment, and I like that carrot.com is fully dedicated to be a leadgen website creator. Please let me know what you think. Just looking for ways to source off-market deals in my area, Miami.

@Joseph Grullon I heard Brandon talking about pro leads on a webinar yesterday, but I cant find out anything about it. What is it / where do you go to learn about it?

I haven't used either yet, but don't forget about all of the other services that come with ProLeads! You will get access to BPInsights for market/rent data, a SEO site, a CRM, and a mailing service! It sounds like an awesome deal, but it would probably be a good idea to price each of those things out individually and see how much the services would cost on their own.

@Miller McSwain ah ok great, thanks. $249/month huh? I have signed up for a package of 3 sites from investor carrot for $99/month, which includes their SEO optimized sites and a CRM. I also get Liondesk for free as a CA Realtor.  I'm interested in the skip tracing though, and not sure how much that costs from other vendors.

I chose investor carrot before BP came out with this service, in large part because I looked around and all of the first page results of home buyers in my area were all using it. So I took that as a sign that it's possible to make it work and show up on page 1 of google results.

I hear what you are saying, but making a self-built site rank well with SEO sounds incredibly difficult. I think Carrot/BP ProLeads sites are definitely better than self-built sites. Although they do cost more, they should bring much more traffic and pay for the higher cost many times over.

 And then if they shut down, raise prices substantially, customer service goes down.... Trust me that your own site is better. It is no harder for you to rank a site than anyone else. I'd rather pay an SEO specialist to rank my own site that I own and control 100% than have a large driver of business be dependent on someone else's business.  But again if you choose between the two I would recommend carrot. It is their only business. BP is not going to specialize in it and if they do they are years behind the competition. And it's hard to switch from theirs to your own if you ever decide to.

If I’m not mistaken, with carrot you’re able to keep your site if you decide to go elsewhere. Because I had previously compared them with LeadPropeller and they certainly would not let you transfer your site. 

@Joseph Grullon I don't think Carrot will let you keep your site content if you go elsewhere.  Domain yes, because you have to register it elsewhere and hook it up to your site.  

With LeadPropeller (I'm the founder), you can register a domain with us or register elsewhere.  Either way you can transfer that domain wherever you like because you own it.  

Just wanted to clear that up. :)

I don't think you could go wrong with any of these platforms.  They are all developed by respectable people in the industry.  It's more about what you do to drive traffic to them that matters...and of course personal credibility items you add to the site.

Interesting, correct me if I'm wrong, but the screenshots used on the 'Pro Leads' landing page appear to just be 'Resimpli'?

So is BiggerPockets just reselling the 'Resimpli' CRM?  If so, congrats to Resimpli on the partnership!

What do you get with the BiggerPockets 'Pro Leads' that you don't get with the Resimpli CRM for $99/month?

Updated about 1 year ago

The Lead Generation website screenshot looks like a Carrot website, and the 'Driving for Dollars' screenshot looks like DealMachine? So is ProLeads just a bundle of already existing tech solutions? Or is this a new software BP has developed?

Danny,

Thank you for the clarification. It seems like it comes down to leadpropller and carrot, as they both offer a great service and as far as transferability it is the same between the two. Thanks again!

@David Robertson

I think that it is a bundle of existing software for the most part.

With ProLeads, I believe you get:
1. BP Pro ($390/year divided into months $32.50/month)
2. RESimpli ($99/month)
3. Deal driving service (I'm not sure if they use Deal Machine, but if they do that is $49/month)
4. Vestor ($49/month)

So if you bought those services individually, it would cost $229.50. I should mention that a lot of these services have different tiers. I'm not sure which ones ProLeads members will get, so I chose the package I thought it might include. So that $229.50 figure could be off.

Also, it is worth mentioning that with ProLeads, you also get access to an exclusive Facebook community, 50 skip-traces/month, and 50 postcards/month. I didn't include that in my figure, so that bumps ProLeads value up a bit.
