Seth Choate, the founder of Valley Cash Offers, is a seasoned real estate investor and realtor with over a decade of experience in the industry. He began his career in real estate as a realtor ten years ago, and for the past six years, he’s been growing the real estate investment side of his business from the ground up.
Through hard work and dedication, Seth has built a successful REI company that has grown substantially year over year and includes 18 team members across three different states, including California, Nevada, and Oklahoma. But, with growth comes growing pains.
In this case study, we’ll discuss how Seth utilized REIPrintMail to free up his schedule and guarantee consistency in his direct mail campaigns to ensure that the leads kept flowing, no matter how busy his business got.
Seth is no stranger to direct mail marketing. Before signing on with REIPrintMail two years ago, Seth utilized a different direct mail provider for his monthly marketing campaigns. The problem was that Seth had to manage the entire process alone with them, including selecting mailers, editing copy, uploading lists, and clicking through everything.
Since launching a direct mail campaign with his previous provider was tedious and time-consuming, Seth often put off launching new mail campaigns, which resulted in his lead flow slowing down.
“Before I signed on with REIPrintMail, I was doing direct mail through another company that I had to do everything with, and it just got to the point in my business where I was dropping the ball on getting our stuff out on time because I had to do it all. So, consistency was a problem because launching a campaign was a pain, so I put it off. But the problem is, when you let your marketing drop because you don’t get your mail out on time, the lead count goes down with it.” ~Seth Choate
For Seth, managing the company’s direct mail campaigns became increasingly challenging the busier his business got. However, this changed when he met REIPrintMail Direct Marketing Coach, Corey Meeker, at an REI event. Corey impressed Seth with his responsiveness, efficiency, and willingness to go above and beyond to help him with all his direct mail needs.
Here’s what Seth had to share about his initial impression of working with Corey and the REIPrintMail team:
“When I connected with Corey, he took care of everything. I just go, ‘Corey, here’s the list I need to direct mail.’ It’s super quick and easy, and he’s always very responsive. Our mail gets done timely, and I don’t have to worry about it. That’s why I continue working with REIPrintMail over other direct mail services.”
Seth’s partnership with REIPrintMail has had a significant impact on his business. Over the past two years, Seth’s company, Valley Cash Offers, has seen impressive growth, with his number of REI transactions doubling to 89 in 2022. In addition, Seth has built up a portfolio of 42 long-term holdings and aims to increase his monthly cash flow to $50,000 through passive investments.
Not only has Seth experienced increased deal flow, but he has also regained one of his most valuable resources – time. As a father of three young children, Seth values being able to spend time with them.
Corey Meeker, Seth’s direct marketing coach, has been instrumental in helping Seth save time. Seth speaks highly of Corey’s responsiveness and willingness to help wherever needed. Corey even helped Seth find his new home.
“I wanted to buy a very specific primary residence to live in personally, and I told Corey, ‘let’s do this.’ He pulled all the data, I created a letter, he sent it out, and I got exactly what I wanted!” Seth shared.
