My review of a free landlords ebook

My review of a free landlords ebook

Yesterday afternoon I spotted a Tweet recommending a free landlords ebook. There are quite a few around but this is the first I’ve decided to review independently.

Having been a landlord since 1989 I didn’t expect to learn much when I downloaded it but I did so to see if it would be a useful tool to pass on to newbies. When people find out I’ve been in the business for so long I do tend to get a barrage of questions and find myself offering free consultancy all the time. Sometimes I get a bit fed up of saying the same things over and over but I’m always flattered when people ask for my opinion.

I been looking for a concise and easy to read reference manual which covers all the basics for some time to pass onto newbies and small landlords. I even started writing my own ebook for landlords but just haven’t got around to finishing it yet.

As the ebook was written by a Letting Agent I was very pleasantly surprised to see that it wasn’t just a thinly disguised advert. Once I started reading it I couldn’t put it down. It took me less than an hour to read and I found myself nodding in agreement as I plodded my way through all 50 of the key points they made about property lettings and entering the business of being a landlord.

As I was so impressed with it myself I decided to Tweet the link. The feedback I got from other Twitter users was very positive too.

My Tweet simply said ….

I'm really pleased for you 🙂

Wait and see what happens when this article is featured in our newsletter next week!

Expect a LOT more downloads. 

You may want to re-think your current offer of providing a paperback version for free too, your postage bill is going to cost you a fortune!

Good point, Mark - we'll give some thought to introducing a small charge to cover postage costs, before your newsletter comes out. If anybody wants to be sure of getting a completely free hard copy, order now at 🙂

My link didn't work so I had to order the free copy by post!
Perhaps mention their website where one may directly download avoiding links on other sites that don't always work.
Course it could be something wrong with my computer settings;  but irrespective of that I just want a copy, which I've now done.

Paul, I have similar problems sometimes in Explorer (particularly with video) and then when I try the same thing in Google Chrome it works okay. Anyway, glad you managed to order your copy in the end, I've already posted it out to you first class. Kind regards, David. 🙂

Paul, just checked our system and your email is showing as undeliverable, so it seems there may be a problem with the email address you entered. Feel free to have another go if you still want the pdf version. Kind regards, David.

Peculiar as I clicked on the link that was sent to my email,  so my email is valid.
I think it must be something to do with computer settings?

Have you checked your spam folder Paul, mine came though very quickly, about 10 minutes, but it got stuck in my spam. Perhaps it could be the size of the attachment? 

NOTE for Knight Property Management. Have you considered promoting it on Amazon? Talk to Jack in the office on Monday. He will set it up for you if you ask him nicely, with our compliments. I'll get Svetlana to download it on the Kindle I got her for Christmas.

Thanks very much, Mark. It's available on Amazon as a hard copy, but not in Kindle format, so will speak to Jack on Monday. 🙂
