The Crazy Foreclosure Guy
I have a new client -- The Foreclosure Shoppe a.k.a. The Crazy Foreclosure Guy. His real name is Tom Bruzzesi. He and his girlfriend Gina are doing some really amazing things! When Gina and I spoke on the phone about what she and Tom are trying to do, we connected immediately -- it was personal.
Tom has a connection to the Marines, and so do I, through my family. Tom tried to enlist at age 17, but was rejected due to health concerns from his past. His story is amazing. I won't tell it all here, though, you'll have to read it on his website: www.theforeclosureshoppe.com.
My connection to the marines is my brother-in-law, who gave his life for us during the first Gulf War in 1991. And, my 6-year-old son, who donated all of his birthday gifts to the Marines' Toys for Tots program in honor of his uncle last year.
Since Tom was not able to enlist in the Marines, he found other ways of giving to our military and our country. Now that he runs a successful business, he is giving back, BIG TIME. More to come on that later!
The first release we put out was about a home that he purchased at a foreclosure auction for only $1,000. Seriously, $1,000. I don't know about you, but that's less than my monthly mortgage payment. Then, he sold the house for only$18,000 within a couple of weeks! That's a 1300% profit! Tom plans to hold investment seminars in the future to teach other people how to make money this way!
To get the word out, we put out a SEO PRweb release, which is getting tons of exposure worldwide! In just one week, it has had more than 1,300 full-page reads on PRweb and 101,000 headline impressions! Definitely check it out -- it has a fun video embedded, too!
We are also talking about it locally, and we'll see how that goes! Overall, this release seems to be a great foundation for building up to all of the work that he is doing. It's really helping get his name out there. Stay tuned! More to come!
