Making Money with Prestley Snipes: Cold Calling Homeowners [Episode 2]



In Episode #2 of "Making Money with Prestley Snipes", we cold call a homeowner live, to see if they're willing to sell us their house! I made some great progress this week! I came up with a name for my new real estate investing business. I also went to Walmart and bought an AT&T prepaid phone, which I will use as the hotline for my new real estate business. After that, I then designed a logo and made some flyers and business cards, which I then got professionally printed. I also set up my real estate website and bought a new domain name to accompany my new real estate brand. I'm now a little more prepared than I was last week and I'm ready to start marketing my company to potential homeowners and investors. On the last episode, I was "driving for dollars", building a list of prospective homeowners to call, hoping that they'd sell me their home. In this episode, I'm actually trying to call some of the homeowners from my list to see if I can make a deal with them over the phone! Watch and learn to see what happens next! Episode #3 coming soon!

Producers Tagging Beats: Has It Gone Too Far?



You shouldn't have to sell people on your music. If your music is good, people will be sold. In this video, I talk about producers putting tags on their beats. There is nothing wrong with promoting yourself as a producer and artist. This channel focuses on marketing. It recently has become very popular in the past few years, for producers to have their own signature "beat tag". A "beat tag" is a soundbite, usually of the producers name being said, usually before the artist begins to sing or rap over the music. The beat tag has become very popular in recent years and it has helped to bring fame, to the once obscure, music producer. In the past, producers gained popularity, by creating their own signature sound, as well as by connecting with rising or popular artist, with the goal of creating good music. Music production equipment, was a lot more expensive in the past, which created a void of music producers. Nowadays, with only a laptop and Fruity Loops software, anyone can now produce high quality sounding music. With ease, the ambitious producer can emulates their favorite producers, which then creats an influx of, copy cat sounding music. These producers are making these rushed beats, and the only thing that separates these mediocre beats, are the producer's unique beat tags. The beat tag helps the producer to be identified in the sea of copy cat sounding beats. In my opinion, a beat tag is not necessary. I've heard some beat tags that turned me away from listening to a song. I would suggest using your best judgement, if you are using a beat tag. As long as you try your best to be as original as possible, people will recognize your beats and your sound. Quality work cannot be denied. If you use beat tags, do not be offended. I'm just giving a different perspective on how I feel about some beat tags, that I hear. There are some beat tags, that I think, sound good with the music. There are others that I feel, should be taken off the song. This is just my opinion. You must take everything into consideration, if you plan to succeed.

Establishing CREDIT and the Importance of Credibility



Every time you create a new piece of work, you are giving yourself a new credit. Having credentials is what helps to establish you in your field. Seeking credit from others, will be unnecessary, when you are establishing credit for yourself. Establishing your own credentials is what makes you unique. When it comes to establishing financial credit, here’s how the FICO system works. There are three major credit bureaus, Equifax, TransUnion and Experian. Credit lenders use a system called FICO, to establish the risk factor when loaning money to people. Having several good standing accounts, which you pay on time, will make your credit score get higher. When establishing your brand online, you gain credentials by creating and sharing your work online. Think of different social media platforms, the same way you would think of having various credit card accounts. You must use all of the various platforms to establish your brand, the same way that you would use all of your various credit accounts, to establish your FICO Score. There is a lot to learn about credit. The most important rule to remember is to pay your bills on time, while not utilizing all of your credit, while managing various long standing accounts. These same principles apply to online marketing, and if you want to be successful, you must use your various social media accounts, websites, apps, to further your brand, while creating original and unique content and marketing plans, while also being consistent. If this is done properly, over time, you will be establishing work credit and credentials. In marketing, having “credit” will lead to you gaining fans, getting recognition, money and business success. Create as much content on as many platforms as possible, to establish credentials, which will lead to success in the long run. Another major point to remember is, no credit is just as bad as bad credit. That means that having little to no credited work, is actually worst than having mediocre credited work distributed. Establish yourself and your brand by putting as much work out there as possible. The only way to get credit, is to create it for yourself. No one is looking to build your credit for you. That is something you have to do for yourself. Understand that people are trying to create and build their own credit. Don't be offended.
