Here is what some Career Path graduates had to say about their experience:

“Career Path is perfect for someone that is not really sure how to take their land business to that next level. Career Path gave us 100% clarity.”

“Career Path was THE community (I needed). It’s an intimate group of people, everyone was friendly, and we felt totally comfortable reaching out to others in the course.”

“Definitely one of the best benefits to Career Path is being able to have direct access to Jack & Jill to ask questions about your business, and specifically what you’re working on. It was great to get feedback directly from them.”

“When you learn what we learned in Career Path, there’s no way you can fail, it’s worth the cost.”

“Thanks to Career Path, we feel like we have the skills in place now to propel our business to that next level.”

“I had a pretty successful land business for about 4 years, and I was looking for anything that would take my business to the next level. Career Path provided us with the opportunity to take our business wherever we wanted. Sky’s the limit.”


Outsourcing & Hiring to Scale Your Land Business

By: Jill DeWit

If you find yourself frequently considering hiring help – you should. If you often ask yourself, “Am I there yet?” – you are. If you can no longer supply the demands of your business or you’re starting to feel overwhelmed and overworked, it’s time to outsource and hire – you’re now past due.

As if quitting your nine to five (and the steady paycheck that went with it) wasn’t terrifying enough, you’re now contemplating hiring your first employee and surrendering control of some part(s) of your business through outsourcing. Add that to being responsible for the livelihood of another person and you’ll soon see why, for some, outsourcing and hiring can be challenging.

Jack and I teach a course called Career Path (https://landacademy.com/careerpath) and we find that each new class sort of, “naturally” adopts a theme. The Career Path 02 group was preoccupied with pricing. Career Path 03 was focused on scaling up.

Too often, I hear members say, “I wish I would have done this a year ago”. What are you waiting for? Stop holding yourself back. You cannot scale your business without outsourcing and hiring, this is a critical step if you want to level up. This business is unique in that it is extremely scalable and allows for a lot of control, use that to your benefit.

Start with a plan – What task(s) will you outsource? What is the cost? How much time is needed to complete the task? How many deals do you need to cover the new cost?

Don’t overthink this – often you are what is holding you back

Consider the “3 A’s” – (not to be confused with the “6 A’s”). Act, Adjust and Add.

Act – act on it. Put your plan in place and begin outsourcing and/or hiring your fist employee.

Adjust – adjust that person as needed to meet your needs.

Add – add tasks when ready.

There are a few things that need to be outsourced for you to really succeed. Jack and I have put together several tools to make this easier for you. The newest product is Concierge Data. Our team of experts will pull and scrub your data to ensure you are sending out the perfect mailer. This particular task can be very time consuming if you do it yourself. When our team has finished, all you have to do is enter your offering percentage and place your order. Choosing to outsource will allow more time for you to focus on the other aspects of your business. If you are interested in this service, you can find more information at https://www.offers2owners.com/shop/concierge-data/ .

Do the math. Stop just considering outsourcing and instead, act on it. Concierge Data is an easy place to start.

Remember, we’ve got your back and if you follow our business model, we won’t let you fail.

Marketing Tips

Know Your Audience

The first three words that you will hear in any communications or marketing class are the following: Know your audience. Before formulating a marketing campaign, creating a social media post, or deciding on a font for your brand guide, you must first determine the target market and then research the best way to reach and appeal to them.

The more targeted your marketing is towards your specific audience, the more effective it is. That’s why direct mail marketing is the most effective form of marketing in the real estate business; even in the digital age. Sure, TV commercials for property flipping may reach several people. But most of these people will not be a part of the intended target audience, thus rendering the commercial campaign ineffective and inefficient.

With a mail campaign (put together with the help of DataTree, Land Academy Concierge, and Offers2Owners), you will pinpoint and reach your intended audience. This type of campaign is more likely to produce the very best results.
