What’s the #1 mistake syndicators make in building an online platform? Many put the cart before the horse and promote their business BEFORE the site is ready. They don’t provide a compelling reason to GO to their platform, and they have no way of capturing a visitor’s information once they get there. So, what can you do to score a lead’s email address and grow a substantial list of potential investors?

Monick Halm is the creator of Real Estate Investor Goddesses, a platform designed to help 1M women achieve financial freedom through real estate investing. To date, she has built an audience of more than 10K potential multifamily investors! Monick has 14 years of experience as an investor, syndicator and developer, building wealth through apartment buildings, mobile home parks, vacation rentals and ground-up development. Together with her husband and community of investors, she owns 1,300-plus units across 5 states.

On this episode of the podcast, Monick joins me to explain what keeps women on the sidelines of multifamily investing and how she is getting more women involved through Real Estate Investor Goddesses. She shares her process for raising money for a deal through the platform, discussing why it’s crucial to capture each visitor’s email address and what she does to drive traffic to the site. Listen in for Monick’s insight on getting educated on multifamily during this unique moment in time and learn what she did to build a list of 10K in a very short period!
