What’s The Secret? To Generating Real Estate Leads On The Internet?

OK, so maybe this didn’t happen………….

I just escaped!  I ran all the way home to tell you what just happened to me.  I can’t believe this….I’m out of breath…….  Ok, breathe…in…out….in…out.  Ok, yesterday, Wednesday, July 28th, 2010, 1700 hours, I mean 5:00 P.M., (sorry, I reverted back to my military training there for a minute.  Won’t happen again.)  Ted Canto (a loan officer here in the Southeast Valley)  and I left my office in Mesa, Arizona, (really its the Mesa-Gilbert Border), any way… after another successful day of helping Arizona REALTOR’s grow their business using Web 2.0 tactics.  You know….Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, WordPress, ActiveRain, Yelp, YouTube, the list really goes on and on.  Anyway, we left my office yesterday, whistling “girls just want to have fun” the theme song to Mission Impossible when everything went black!

I heard the noise of screeching tires, then the heat of a van, probably  a mini van of some kind,  in front of me.  2 guys with sharpened brooms and fishing poles 12 commandos with guns, and grenades, and knives, picked me up and threw me in the side of the van, I cried held my composure….I didn’t want them to see that I was scared not scared at all!  I could hear Ted yelling “I want my Mommy!” “You’ll never take me alive!”  I didn’t know what these guys wanted but I knew them meant business!

You see, I am a marketing rep for a national title insurance company based in Phoenix Arizona, I help my clients (mostly Realtors) get found on the Internet….where more and more of their clients are.  Up until now I thought that my competitors were just frustrated, I never thought that anyone would do something like this! (If they did that is).  Anyway, I woke up, to tape being ripped off my mouth, and bright lights in my face.  Some GUY, with horrible breath was screaming at me, “Whats the secret?”, I’m like,.,, “Dude..the secret to what?”  “The Internet!…what is the secret to generating leads on the Internet!”

I’m like “whatever dude….I’m not telling you anything!” He says, “We will see about that, after the truth serum starts to take effect”. Truth Serum?

Ok, so, anyway, I escaped!  And these Idiots recorded the whole darn thing!  I grabbed the tape on my way out.    I want you to see what happened!

As you can see this has been quite an experience. I still can’t believe this happened. I know the title industry is competitive but this is ridiculous! I got home and jumped right into my Tae-Bo videos Tae Kwon Do

By the way, has anyone seen Ted Canto?
