035 Will Grimes & Eli Schmidt


WARNING: Gene invites guests with potty mouths, but we love Will Grimes and Eli Schmidt of Day One Dollar Zero.

In part two of the interview with the Denver real estate moguls, Marketing RV with Ranalli & Volpe dug deeper into the pairs penchant for network marketing—both social media and tangible, old fashioned, face-to-face connectivity. Will summed it up best, “In sales, your objective is to create the best relationship possible in order to have the most influence.”

In this show, Will and Eli give a little background into how Day One, Dollar Zero came to be, including the name, which is quite literal. To hear a detailed account of their founding, check out Day One Dollar Zero Episode 034 Keeping the Faith.

Networking is a huge part of the strategy that goes into Will and Eli’s success. It’s a priority; they train their team on it. Listen to the way Will and Eli describe networking. They don’t network simply for the sake of collecting contact info; they build relationships, sometimes getting to know their fellow gym rat or school parent for years before that person knows they sell real estate. The formula works because they keep relationships real.

Partnering is a surefire way to promote your brand, which is why we take Marketing RV on the road and talk business with interesting guests. If your business would like to sponsor and host Marketing RV, contact us here.
