Below are some of the resources that I have used or am currently using in my business every day. I know that all of them are valuable and should be plugged into your business at some point. I hope you enjoy them if you have any questions about how I use them please feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I absolutely love YellowLetters.com. I send out a ton of mail every month. Currently 50,000 mail pieces per month. Yellow letters handles all of it. They do a great job and make the biggest revenue generating part of my business run smoothly.
If you use the promotional code: Returnoninvestments10 you will get 10% off of your order. If you're doing a lot of mailing, this can add up and represent a significant savings!
I use Google docs in my business every single day. It is great for creating internal documents that we use in our business all the time. It is updated dynamically and can be shared with everybody on the team without emailing a copy back-and-forth. It's great because when someone makes an edit or a change to a document that shared with others, that edit is available to everyone immediately. That way you don't have two or three different versions of the same document floating around your company.
Literally all communication that happens in my company happens through WhatsApp. It is how we talk to each other exclusively. You can leave voice memos, upload files to it, leave a text message, share pictures, etc. You can also create groups so that certain people can talk who are working on a project together without involving people who are not working on that project. It helps reduce the noise of all of the text messages we get through our native phones and keeps all of our business communication in one place which is ideal. I highly suggest you use this fantastic app in your company.
Podio is the CRM that my company uses. It is literally the information hub and brain of my organization. All seller, buyer, contractor interaction and information is housed here. It absolutely keeps my company running smoothly and keeps everyone on task with what needs to be done. Nothing slips through the cracks when using this program. It is an absolute must have in your real estate investing business.
SignEasy is great! It lets me sign and then send documents right from my phone. In the real estate investing world, there are a lot of signatures required on various forms. SignEasy is incredibly simple to use and helps me stay mobile and get things done. I have been using this app for years.
In business you should always have a phone number that is separate from your personal phone number. Google Voice is a great app that gives you a second number for free on your existing phone! You can text, and call people anywhere unlimited for free. You've got to get this app and try it out!
Can you believe that people are still using fax? Well they are. Seriously. When you need to send a fax, the bottom line is you have to have some way of doing it. Since most people don' have a fax machine readily available to them, it's super easy to use this app. Just snap a picture (or use Turbo Scan app), upload to Metro fax, and send. The recipient will receive it as if it were sent through a standard fax machine. You may not use this app every day, but when you need it to fax critical documents in a hurry, you'll be glad you have it!
I love Turbo scan. It's an app that has been around for a long time. There are tons of scanning apps out there, but I'm loyal, I've been using this one since I started my business and I see no reason to switch because it works! No matter which one you choose you definitely should have an app that allows you to scan to your phone. It produces much more professional and clean results than simply taking a picture. You can also use Turbo scan in conjunction with Metro fax to send clear, clean professional faxes when necessary. I also use Turbo scan if I need to email documents to a client, title company, or partner.
I love to read! In recent years I have found it increasingly difficult to find time to sit down and read a book. I sometimes read at night before I go to bed, but I can't get too far before I fall asleep. That's why I love consuming books in audio format while I'm in my car or traveling. It's a great way to absorb content when you're on the go. Real estate investors Often spend a lot of time on the road, and traveling. When I travel or drive around I always am listening to an audiobook and trying to learn. Go to audible.com and check them out they are great!
