About REI Motivation

Hey I’m Alex

I am the Director of Operations at Carrot (carrot.com). It’s no secret but I LOVE real estate. Real estate has made more millionaires than any asset class.

But I also love teaching and sharing what I’ve learned. My time at Carrot has been nothing short of transformational. This blog is a testament to my two loves. Teaching + real estate.

Before Carrot I found a calling with online marketing. I loved the idea of creating a website and finding ways to bring traffic to it. I quickly latched on to SEO, pay-per-click marketing, and other growth hacking methods to get eyeballs to websites.

When I first started with Carrot that was my job. Help get Carrot to get in front of more real estate investors. I learned quickly and became addicted. 

But now that I have a ton of knowledge about what makes a Carrot website work and how to drive traffic to a motivated seller website I have this urge to share my knowledge and teach more investors what I have been fortunate enough to learn.

The Start Of REI Motivation

I actually bought this domain with another idea in mind (it was a print-on-demand poster company).

But on a random weekend, I felt the need to start a blog to start documenting my progress towards my real estate goals and to share my marketing knowledge about finding seller and buyer leads online.

I looked in my Namecheap account and found REI Motivation just laying around.

I launched a WordPress website on it and decided to start talking about online marketing for real estate investor leads and my journey to getting my first 5 real estate investment properties.

For the last 4+ years, I have devoted myself to helping Carrot grow and learning all I can about real estate investing.

I think the time is right to start sharing my knowledge and giving back to everyone who has helped make me what I am today.

I decided that it was time for me to start sharing more about what marketing really works for investors online.

After talking with HUNDREDS of investors and agents I wanted to put my $0.02 in and give back.

Thus the start of REI Motivation.

Stay Tuned!
