Wholesaling Real Estate and Banner Blindness

Let me share a concept called “banner blindness” in wholesaling real estate and marketing with you.

When people are conditioned to seeing a particular object over and over with no particular value added to them, they subconsciously stop seeing it all together.

People acquire that natural thing that they just never see banners from strangers.

It’s a noisy marketplace for the Wholesaling Real Estate Business

…and you will not stand out when there is no value based relationship involved with your advertising.

The direct mail that you send out to potential motivated seller can end up in that banner blindness box. In fact, it will in most cases. They end up in the garbage.

If they don’t know you personally already, you are only going to be annoying them by sending the typical “call me to help you” type of letters to these folks.

OR WORSE? they don’t even see it at all because of the banner blindness that has plagued marketing in general including marketing inthe wholesaling real estate business.

Instead of the traditional direct mail, send access to something of value online such as an ebook in exchange for their digital contact information. Use the 3 C’s formula.

When they end up in your tribe because you’ve demonstrated being a person of value to them, simply continue to build the relationship equity until they pick up the phone and call you. This should be happening at scale.

Question from a viewer

“So I send my direct mail every 2 weeks for the past 7 months. I am not very happy with the response so far. I was sold on wholesaling real estate being easier than this.

And to make matters worse, I have not closed one deal. Spent over $15,000 on the training I took plus the events I attended. I really need this to work out.

Mailing preforeclosure and expired listings. Can you share a tip or 2 on how I can recoup my investment thus far and start closing deals?

Thanks for your videos.”
