Top Performing Members are Outsourcing to Concierge Mailer
Most of the time our staff come to us and say a certain number of requests have come in for a particular service and we create a product that meets that need. This product, Concierge Mailer, happens to be one of my ideas. Concierge Data, Concierge Mailer, Concierge Pricing, they are all the same things. So, what exactly is this product and who should use the service?
If you follow us at all, you know we are big fans of outsourcing what you can without sacrificing quality to make your work and personal life more efficient. We really want you to focus on the stuff that makes you good at what you do, which is making decisions about buying property and how much you should sell it for. The big picture stuff without all the mechanics.
Sure, you can pull all the data, analyze it, scrub it, and ultimately price it, while making sure you are picking the right county, or you could have Concierge Mailer do all of that for you.
I started using Concierge Mailer long before it had an official title. It was just me and one of our employees. I’d let him know I’d completed the red, green, and yellow test and ask him to pull all the data for a particular county. I told him what I wanted him to scrub out and then he’d do the best he could from a pricing standpoint, and I’d check it when he was done. He’d give me notes about areas to watch out for or things he noticed while scrubbing the data.
That’s Concierge Mailer. You put your order in, it’s all custom and at the end you will receive a default pricing scenario. All of the work is done for you, quickly, and you don’t have to wonder if the work you’ve done is correct.
We were surprised to find that several of our top producing members are now using Concierge Data. I had originally developed this product to help our members that were struggling with the data part, but it turns out the convenience of it has really become popular. We’ve got seasoned pros who can do this with their eyes closed and they are still choosing to outsource. It is all about being more efficient and focusing more on the tasks you can’t or don’t want to outsource.
I enjoy running the red, green, yellow test myself but once I find a county or a zip code, I send it to Concierge Data and they do the rest with a quick turnaround, usually one or two days. Once I get it back, I’ll check for flaws and test for reason and maybe reprice it or certain sections of it.
Every project has the “grunt work” that takes forever, and Concierge Mailer removes that for you. No matter how you look at it, it’s faster, better, and cheaper.
Do you have other product ideas or areas that are slowing you down? There is a section in Discord called “Resource Sharing” and another called “Topic Requests” for existing members. That is where I get a lot of ideas for podcast and blog material, and it is where this topic originated. We’d love to hear what ideas you have for future outsourcing possibilities.

We have moved the member webinar to 2 pm PT. We needed to ensure all questions, deal reviews, and new information gets addressed during the call. Land Academy is at capacity with 500 members across the world. We found it difficult to answer all questions in a short amount of time, so we have decided to start our calls an hour early.

Where is Your Dot Com?
The absolute most essential thing for your business in 2021 and beyond is a functional website. It is one of the first parts of your business that you should establish so that people can easily find out who you are and what you do. Of course, social media channels exist and they serve as a way of disseminating that same information, but it is important to have your own platform to be able to further elaborate what you’re about in a cohesive way. Plus, with so many easy-to-use web-hosts like Squarespace, Wix, and so on, there is absolutely no excuse to not have a website! So, what are you waiting for? Either set aside some time to create your own website with a user-friendly web host, or simply hire someone to do it for you!

This month’s question (more success story) came from Lucas over on LandInvestors.
My offer was for a property that was already listed. The seller and I couldn’t agree on a price. However, he had a tiny parcel in a nearby county that he was also wanting to get rid of. It was so tiny that I wasn’t sure if anything could be done with it, but it was right downtown in a nice community directly off main street. City zoning allows for trailers and modular homes, so I went for it
We agreed on a price. Closed quickly. I put it up for sale. I put up a for sale sign and it was under contract to sell within a week. Never even had time to get my posting online. Bought for $3,800 and sold for $9,000. Now I have enough cash to go back and try some deals that I missed from my first mailer. Again, I owe a debt of gratitude to this community.
Check out and listen to Steven and Jill’s reponse HERE.
Our Member Spotlight this month is Laurie Phillips!
Laurie has had about eleven companies under her belt. While Laurie has blown us away with how she has applied CFFL and made it her own.
You can find her actively helping people on Landinvestors.com and the discord. Her best advice is to educate yourself, call the counties and escrow companies.
We’re especially excited to announce that Laurie is going to be helping us lead the Land Academy Accountability Groups – so if you sign up you’ll get to work pretty closely with her.
(Pro Tip: Laurie LOVES to fund your deals)
Listen to her talk with Steven and Jill about how she went full force in the land business and has grown her business dramatically HERE!
