Scott Jelinek has been a real estate investor for the last 20 years. He started his business with nearly no money and no plan, but has quickly scaled and grown his business to help match the lifestyle he wants. Today, he travels 12 weeks out of the year and makes around 3-5 deals a month.
Although it might not sound like a lot, Scott is still able to make around $19K on average with each deal. On this week’s episode, Scott discusses why direct-mail marketing might not be the best option for someone who is just starting out, and opens the door towards cheaper guerrilla marketing strategies that anyone can implement.
