It’s web 2.0 week in the thirty day challenge!

30DC – Day 8 – Getting Traffic

Scott CostelloAll, Internet Marketing 1 Comment

I’m already up to day 8!  This is kinda fun if I do tell you the truth.  I love this internet marketing stuff.  Today we dealt with getting traffic to our websites.  For me this has been a daily grind, even getting visitors to this blog.   It has taken me over a year to get a steady flow of about 45 visitors a day. There are many ways to get people to come visit your site, but it comes down …

30DC – Day 4 – Monitization

Scott CostelloAll, Blog, Internet Marketing 1 Comment

Day 4 was mainly about making money, but not in the way an investor is looking to do it.  They focus on selling affiliate products through amazon, clickbank and a few other sites.  This could be a great source of added income in the future for me, but at this point the focus of my efforts is to get leads so I can by some houses! There are some pretty good lessons to be learned from this day but none …

Last night I started my thirty day challenge! I got through all the preseason modules  yesterday afternoon.  The preseason consists of introducing you to the tools (google analytics, google reader, twitter, facebook, firefox, youtube, Market Samurai, etc..) in order to get you setup and ready to start the challenge.  Most of the tools are free forever while some like market samurai are free for 30+ days.  None of the tools are necessary to go through the thirty days, they just …

Finding it hard to find time

Scott CostelloAll, Blog 4 Comments

I first want to thank Jerry Dalglish for writing a great guest article about Staying Focused.  It really pinpoints what the key is to being successful in this business.   Here is a preview… When you are focused you are productive.  When you are productive you tend to get things done.  That may sound kind of trite, but I mean it seriously.  For what seemed like an eternity I struggled with a lack of specific focus other than the idea …

How To: Get MLS Access Without Your License

Scott CostelloAll 19 Comments

Many new investors find it hard to believe that you can get MLS access without having your license.  You can search the forums at flippinghomes.com or reiclub.com for the way and inevitably you will come to the answer…“Just Ask”. Of course it isn’t really that simple.  Yes you have to ask for it, but it’s how you ask that will determine you success or failure.  A friend of mine and fellow investor Kelly, from Kelly Flippin Cali recently wrote an …
