Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers - great question. There are two ways to go about - one, go with big names like Boomtown, Tigerleads, CommissionInc which has a great platform and backend.

The second option - LeadPages.com - with everything included.

And if I am still left with some money - A platform where I can run webinars - similar to GoToWebinar.

Though #1 option for me - before any of these....sign up for a coaching for one more year at Buffini & Company....(it's not marketing, I know!)

I WISH !   If presented with this dilemma, I would reorder as many of my new trifold brochures as it would cover.   They have had a very positive effect. Using the document checklist, clients are getting me their paperwork sooner than ever.  My Realtors are handing them out to their clients.   Unlike business cards, they are NOT being discarded because they are seen as an information resource.   Businesses are displaying them openly in my brochure holders instead of them being mixed in with cards on a bulletin board.   Finally, they make a spur of the moment, on the spot presentation easier with a takeaway for the person to remember me and my contact info.   Best of all, if they abandoned it, chances are someone else I never met may pick it up, read it and become my next client.   Excellent ROI !

Hire a tech savvy assistant to revamp my website and do all the marketing tech things that I never get around to but need to be done. Then set it up so it was turn key and I could maintain it myself.

Given the time limit you have set, it can only be spent on non-branded, non-personalized items or marketing not subject to the law.  Perhaps tools, equipment etc.

Must be spent by 5PM Monday. That is very limiting,,,,but I can find a way to spend it.

At 4PM I would have the best Microsoft Notebook $3,000 could buy and most likely a few accessories such as a projection device.

Or, there is a really great UHD (4k) Camera that is calling my name.

Or, if it could be a down payment, I have an application that needs to be turned into an app.
