Our guest for this week’s show is the nation’s leading Direct Mail Expert, Craig Simpson. Being that marketing is a core element for any real estate investor who is looking to build and maintain a deal pipeline, direct mail is by far one of the best marketing methods around, that if executed correctly, can help you do more deals and beat out your competition. And today Craig and I discuss how to get started in successfully integrating direct mail into your business NOW!
