    I have a real estate lead generating technique that is freaking awesome but I've get bogged down when it comes to promoting it. I've been told to give the "gold nugget" away then sell the coaching but I'm lost when it comes to how to get traffic to it. I can tell someone how to do it but without knowing how to set things up and answer questions only 1 out of 100 would be able to run with it without me.

    I want to use fb but my understanding of their ads policy suggests that I'm going to be required to give it away up front. If I do I can't build a list.

    I'm freaking frustrated. I used this idea years ago and one of my clients increased his listings from 100 to 300 in 90 days (large broker). I've been jacking around with this forever and I've put it on the back burner so many times I can't count.

    Should I look for someone to do the marketing side and let me do the coaching/education?

    Any constructive advice would be appreciated.

    So you're saying you have a "system" to help agents get more listings? So you want to market to real estate agents and s3ll your service?

    Yes. Technique, system, method. It works for real estate investors and real estate agents. It's almost, and I say "almost" a little blackhat but it's completely legal of course. I'm pretty sure everyone here would appreciate it.

    Some of the pious weak-ass Realtors might not like it because it gets results and it kicks their ass.

    I've looked at some of the "how to generate leads" garbage that the real estate guru's sell at their bootcamps and this puts them to shame (David Lindahl comes to mind).

    Why not use some local SEO to generate the leads yourself, then sell the leads?

    You can then upsell the lead generator.

    You can then upsell the methodology.

    PM if you need someone to help with the local SEO part.

    create a system for clickbank, use SEO for your keywords and promote your sell site, contact realtors/offices directly, there's a ton of ways especially if it works well.
    realtors will spend $ to get more business fast

    It's an offline method. If a realtor or investor hit this hard they could easily have more leads than they could handle and they could sell them, but seo wouldn't help in the way you're thinking.

    Based on the responses/advice I think I'm going to go ahead and throw it up on a landing page, drive some traffic to it, and see what the conversions look like.

    It works well. I just need to focus and get it up. I'm thinking you're right and clickbank may be the way to go. I've had some pretty good counsel through this thread and the PM's. Thanks to everyone who's chimed in.

    Offline is cool too, I vote get the leads first and sell them. It's more legwork for you but if it's as solid a technique as you say, you can make $$$ as a middleman and then sell the strategy on top of that afterwards...
