Learn Successful Real Estate Investment from the Pro’s

There are real estate entrepreneurs who have learned the ropes and developed strategies to make the world of real estate investment profitable. These same entrepreneurs are willing to share their success and knowledge with others. The result is educational packages available through live seminars, books, blogs and websites, similar to what Dean Graziosi offers.

Study the Materials

The educational materials will give interested individuals a boost up and teach interested parties real estate investment. Learning from another entrepreneur shortens the learning curve and saves the student from reinventing the wheel. The student always has the ability to fine tune any methods and techniques learned from others with elements discovered on their own.

The educational package teaches individuals how to buy, sell, rent and flip real estate properties. Many real estate entrepreneurs have learned these methods by studying the knowledge of other successful entrepreneurs. As the real estate market changes, the entrepreneurs adjust their methods and techniques and, as a result, always have something new to offer.

See the experts LIVE

The live events are especially important, and the best way to learn from an expert. Live event participants receive a first hand and up close education with an expert in the field of real estate investing. This is a formula that is successful as the students have the ability to ask questions and participate in a discussion with an expert, rather than just reading a book or listening to an audio blog. Books and blogs on the subject provide helpful and handy reference information, but an actual discussion with an expert is priceless.

Real estate investors often offer their help through the books they author and teach individuals not only how to be successful in the real estate market, but to be happy and confident and to accomplish anything with effort and a plan. The most successful authors create an easy to understand formula to help all interested parties to find the right path to success to every area of their life.

Learn the Inside Track

Students also learn how to identify cycles in the real estate market and to maximize their advantage during the different cycles to make profitable real estate investments. Successful real estate entrepreneurs have developed easy to understand and cutting edge strategies that less experienced real estate investors can follow and duplicate to experience real estate investment success.

The real estate investment entrepreneurs teach their own personal strategies for turning any property into a winning investment, by determining true real estate values. Students learn how to identify different types of real estate markets and a successful method of implementation for each one. Students also learn methods for testing the integrity of any local real estate market and how to use formulas developed by successful real estate investors to turn profits in any real estate cycle. Students also learn how to minimize risk while maximizing profits by understanding the current real estate cycle.

A favorite technique for real estate investment entrepreneurs is the no money down strategy. This method is successful in the ever changing world of real estate investment, mortgages and volatile periods of real estate investment. Lending companies often experience downtimes when it is not in their best interest to lend money to real estate investors and to be able to close a sale with no money down is often times the best route to success.

Invest in Market Growth

You’ll need to study the materials & advice you come across, no matter where you get it. Then look at your local market or where you intend to practise carefully before you begin investing in real estate. With many populous neighborhoods set to grow, demand for real estate properties is going to go on expanding. Make sure you can take part in that trend!

Why I quit Izea, Payperpost and SocialSpark

About two and a bit years ago, I started working for a company that was called PayPerPost. In essence, it was a simple concept: get advertisers to pay bloggers for posts about products and services that interest them.

Over the past two years, I blogged on a huge variety of opportunities for PayPerPost (and much less so, SocialSpark). At one point, I even experimented with being an Advertiser and created several opps for InvestorBlogger Dot Com.

But business for PayPerPost has been up and down for me for the past twelve months. Some months I had a good run at the opps, but in the past six months, I have only taken a few opps. Mostly because I have been segmented out of these opps by virtue of being in Asia.

Then in September, I returned to the UK where I updated my address for comparison. I was shocked at all the new opps that were available to me just because I was now in “Europe”. So after returning to Taiwan, I had to consider what my course of action was to be.

At that point, PayPerPost suddenly dropped all the floors on opportunity pricing from $5.00 to 50c or less. While there were a lot of opps now in the system, in what was disingenuously called ‘an experiment’, most were for very little money at all. At that point, I called it quits. I wrote and requested to be removed from Payperpost and SocialSpark.

This post outlines my initial response, Izea’s reply, and my response to them (since I couldn’t login to post the comment to the author of the reply). I’m now posting it here instead.

Post 1: Quitting

Please remove my account. I’m done with SocialSpark and Izea in general. Sorry. I don’t do blog posts for 25c and links for 50c. I would rather find other ways to monetize my blog.

Hi Kenneth,

I am sorry to hear that you are leaving the IZEA network. Before you go, there are a few things I wanted to clarify for you. First, the minimum offer amount for a Sponsored Post in SocialSpark is $5.00. You may have noticed other Opportunities out there that pay less, specifically Affiliate programs, Blog Sponsorships and CPC Opportunities. None of these Opportunity types requires you to write a post.

Affiliate Opportunities pay per conversion, so you can earn the offer amount over and over again, as many times as a visitor to your site completes the advertiser’s requirements (this may be filling out a form, purchasing a product, or signing up for a service). The offer amounts on these vary from a little less than a Sponsored Post to many times the average offer amount for a Post, depending on the requirements for conversion. Payment for Affiliate Opportunities happens 30 days after a conversion occurs.

CPC Opportunities provide an even greater opportunity for monetization. You get paid each time a visitor, follower, or friend clicks a link to an advertiser’s site. If you’re on Twitter or Facebook this can be especially lucrative if you have many friends or followers. As always, we require disclosure on these paid links. And what’s better, you get paid within a few days (or less) after each click.

Blog Sponsorships may also have an offer amount that is less than a typical Sponsored Post, but they are payed per day. So if you take a $1.00 sponsored post for 30 days, you end up with a much bigger payout in the end. All you have to do is make sure you have ITK on your blog(s).

We’re sorry to see you go, but I did want to reach out and clarify the difference between the Opportunity types in SocialSpark so that your expectation wasn’t that you would get anything less than $5.00 for a Sponsored Post. If the other Opportunity types with lower offer amounts aren’t your thing, that’s okay…

Post 3: My response to Izea (since I couldn’t post it on their network)

Thanks for contacting me.

I saw the new opportunities on SS, but it’s been such a while that I found anything I could do. Despite having two fairly popular blogs with largely N.American traffic, I repeatedly found myself with the bottom of the barrel opps in both SS and PPP.

Even having a PR3 didn’t make things much better. Being based in Asia, I find that there is almost nothing I can do on PPP/SS these days. So, until things look up for me on Izea, I see little or no point in having the code on my blogs… It’s sad, but there it is. The system that Ted created for bloggers ends up excluding bloggers whose blogs are fairly decent. But then Izea spends undue effort removing all the splogs that can legitimately get into PPP/SS and legitimately take those opps.

I”m afraid I have much more success blogging for another company than Izea now. Each time I login to SS/PPP just reminded me of how I was segmented out of the running for 99% of the opps available. Even when opps are available in SS, I’m unable to take any of them for similar reasons: I’m based in Asia.

So for a trial I switched my PPP account to ‘uk’ region, my home and I was shocked at how different things were. I couldn’t legitimately take any of the opps because of the zoning issue. So I didn’t. That’s when I stopped blogging for Izea.

If you could understand my frustration, I have two good blogs (one pr3, one formerly pr2), both Alexa 1million and under, with over 5000 page views a month between them, and majority N. American traffic, and there is so little I can do, it’s not even worth the time logging in. Eventually, enough is enough.

Wishing you all well,

So that’s it. I already removed all the PPP/SS codes from all of my blogs, converted the links, and removed all traces of Payperpost except the archives. If you’re based in North America, then this may be a valuable way to make some money. You’ll certainly learn a lot. I did. I’m extremely grateful for the experience of blogging for Izea. But all good things must end, and indeed they have. It’s time to move on and find new ways to blog, new readers to read my blogs, new topics to write about, and new methods to monetize. Good luck, Ted and all at Izea. I’ll check back from time to time.

Where to go

This blog is still very much in the startup stage. For current readers, please go to the archives for all of the posts up until August 4th. If you would like, use the search above to search for topics.

There are four new sub-blogs, but content isn’t yet published on the new blogs, as I’m setting up the blogs still, and there’s still a lot of work to be done.

In the meantime, if you don’t know where to look: just read the categories or the most recent archives.
