Text Marketing with Lead Sherpa Founder Jason Nickel

On this podcast episode, I interview Jason Nickel who is the founder of Lead Sherpa. Lead Sherpa is a text marketing platform for real estate investors, that lets you send text messages directly to motivated sellers. The first step to text marketing is to purchase a motivated seller list (for example an absentee list). The next step is to skip trace this list which can be done with any skip tracking service or directly inside your Lead Sherpa account. Once you have your list skip traced and you have all of the mobile numbers, then you can start marketing to potential sellers by sending text message to them. This is a very unique way of reaching motivated sellers. There is a lot of buzz in the real estate investing world around new marketing platforms like text marketing. On this podcast Jason discusses text marketing in general and particularly using Lead Sherpa. We also discuss the legality of text marketing (to sellers only) and why text marketing is legal and compliant. We discuss lead acquisition costs, cost per lead and cost per deal and compare it to other marketing platforms such as direct mail, pay per click and Facebook Ads. What we have found in our business is that the cost per lead with text marketing is substantially lower. For example, our average cost per lead in text marketing is $10 to $20. We count a lead as someone that is interested in selling their house. That cost compared to other marketing methods is very low. For example we spend $50 on Facebook Leads and $300 on Pay Per Click Leads for a cost comparison. You should learn how to add this marketing tool to your budget and start marketing directly via text to motivated sellers.

Excellent Content!!!!!

This is a wonderful podcast to listen to with such valuable content. I was very interested to listen to your take on why one should purchase rental property.


Best real estate investor podcast.

Lex gives you real tips with actual names of multiple sites and services to use from the beginner up to advanced. I feel he’s giving away his classes for free on the podcast. Most podcasts stop short of details and give generic advice unless you join there groups.

I’ve been looking to get into the world of real estate investing but everyone I ask gives me answers that makes it all sound way too easy. This podcast gives you the real deal. More please!

Great show for beginners or experts!

As an amateur flipper since I was in my teens, I kind of have gotten pretty good at identifying great opportunities and taking advantage of them. But, Lex dives much deeper and gives actionable tips on how to make sure you are looking at everthing before making any decisions. I'm hooked!

Be Prepared to Learn!

Two words: Information Dense. Sweet Moses. I’ve listened to other real estate investing podcasts but this by far is the most practical, the most hands-on podcast I have heard to date. You can tell that the host, Lex, is very passionate about real estate investing. That passion with his experience translates into an excellent podcast. He shares theory about a topic and then tells a story about his experiences in the real world. That to me is gold!
