What Other Attendees are Saying:

I’d like to thank Dwan, Bill and Aspen for what was one of the most enjoyable two day fun loving learning experiences I’ve had in this business. The balance of fun and teaching was PERFECT! It definitely left me wanting more from you! Thank you Dwan and Bill, and keep those Benadryl tablets handy for the plane rides! I really appreciate the time you spent with us here in the burgh! It was well worth the steeler game and NASCAR race that I gave up to do so! And I know from talking with many of the others in the group that they felt the same way! And to those of you who had other plans for the weekend or just decided not to attend, you missed an opportunity to learn some things that would have definitely taken your business to the next level if the information were to be applied. Jim R, Photios S, & Wayne S. Nov 2011

Bill and Dwan Twyford came to Boston and spoke at Boston AREIA. They spoke on Thursday night and then came back for the weekend and did a 2 day seminar with a group of investors. I got the best feedback that I’ve ever had from a weekend seminar. They offered 2 days of solid teaching! They broke their teaching segments into 1 1/2 hour focus slots. My investors loved the content and how the sessions were structured. Regardless of their investment level, from newbies to seasoned veterans, everyone walked away with tools that they were able to add to their tool belt. Thanks Bill and Dwan! Bernadette T, Boston AREIA

I’ve been around the RE biz for 40 years and attended lots of similar programs but I must say with all honesty those two are truly thee best I have even heard. And most importantly they are both totally believable. Joel B.

It’s time to Get your Local Buzz at a discount! 

I would like to thank those of you that attended Wendy Pineda’s all day class last Saturday 4-14-12.  You had the opportunity to see firsthand, and for free, a lot of the detailed work and breakthrough strategies Wendy uses to rise to the top of Google rankings through Online Marketing and Social Media.  You watched her analyze and critique some of our student members actual business web sites to show what other companies should have done and failed to perform.  She showed you what she would have done to make a huge difference in your marketing for generating more income.

As you know from the class Online Marketing and Social Media is evolving quickly and will continue to change which will require some serious commitment if you want your business to stay ahead of the competition, or at the very least generate more income than it currently is.

On May 1st 2012 Wendy will open the doors to her 12 month Coaching Program for Online Marketing and Social Media and the cost will be $999.00.  Wendy said she will give our SBREIA members 3 days to decide if they want in her 12 month Coaching Program for a discounted price of only $499.  This offer end on April 17th at 6pm.  She is giving this price break for a couple of reasons, yours truly has been working his butt off to make her life easy when dealing with our REIA and keep her happy.  She is happy and she likes us.  This is also a new program of hers which, as mentioned, she is opening the doors on May 1st, 2012 so she currently does not have a slick marketing campaign ready to show all the polished details one would expect to see.  She will on May 1st, 2012.

Here is the unpolished version in a simple email.

What Wendy Pineda is offering you now:
A 12 month coaching program for Online Marketing and Social Media
A 50% discounted price of $499 for the 12 months
Email support with a response in 24 to 48 hours
Emergency one on one coaching on the phone, rarely need, at $100 per hour
Access to training videos on line including the video of our recent class
Attend her one day trainings as many times as you like during the 12 months for FREE

If you did not attend her Saturday 4-14-12 all day class it’s unlikely you would understand the value she is offering here.  If you watched the 2 hour video briefing from our 2-23-12 Meeting – YouTube Videos now online, you will have a better understanding but nothing like the all-day class.  You can still sign up for the coaching even if you didn’t take the all-day class but you must be an SBREIA member for this discount.

I have signed up for Wendy’s 12 month coaching program and I know there will be a number of SBREIA members who attended the class that will sign up too.

Again you only get this discounted price if you sign up before April 17th at 6pm.  So how do you sign up? Just email or call me, Dan Ringwald, 805-967-6595 before April 17th at 6pm and I’ll make sure you get into her 12 month coaching program with the discounted price of $499.  It’s that easy!

Thank you for those that attended this class.  You had some great questions, were very committed to your business by getting the Marketing education, and did a great job with the RSVP and paying in advance.  In fact the only people that showed up were the 23 people that paid in advance.  All those that RSVP and did not pay in advance, 14 people, did not show up.  That says something about having some skin in the game and be committed to your business.

I look forward to working with and supporting those that sign up for Wendy’s coaching program.  I know personally it will help me focus my priorities on the areas of my businesses that have the most potential for generating income and marketing is key for any business.  Thank you Wendy.

You have 2 days left! Email or call me, Dan Ringwald, 805-967-6595 before April 17th at 6pm and let’s get started.

Thank you.

Wendy Pineda Marketing Class

Wendy Pineda All Day Online Marketing and Social Media Class
Date: April 14th, 2012 – Saturday – 10am to 5pm
Location: The Center of the Heart
487 N. Turnpike Road, Santa Barbara, CA 93111

Wendy Pineda – Marketing Class – now only $25 at the door

This is a ROOM CHARGE not a class charge and it’s discounted if you pay in advance here through the Paypal link.  Sorry, there is no refund if you pay and don’t show up.  This link will stop accepting online payments on Thursday 4-12-12 so we can update our registration list for any door charges.  At that point paying $25 per person at the door will be your only option for entering the class.

Wendy Pineda – All Day Online Marketing and Social Media Class is still FREE.

We do need to cover the cost of renting the room for the day from The Center of the Heart which is $250.00.  I am sure the last thing we all want to do is drive to LA for her class to avoid the room charge.  The gas alone would be more than that.  This will be our only SBREIA meeting for the month of April.  Please consider this to be a combination meeting where you would have paid $10 anyway.  Dan Ringwald will present a little real estate information at the beginning and then Wendy will spend the day teaching, in great detail, her information on Online Marketing and Social Media

If you made it to Wendy’s two hour preview at Fess Parker then you know she will pack the day, and our heads, with a lot of information.  I was concerned about the amount of note taking that would be required to retain all of this so I talked Wendy into letting my son Michael and me video this class.  Wendy will have the rights to all videos and will make them available online in the near future, as possibly part of her coaching program.  There could be a charge for that access so you still may want to take some good notes.
