Not Getting Leads on Carrot’s Core Plan? This is Why and How to Fix It

Last updated on

Carrot’s $69 per month Core plan does many things right…

It gives you a tried-and-tested high-converting Carrot website, several custom SEO gadgets, and even a taste for our campaign tracking software.

And that collection of goodies works exceptionally well…

In the right market.

If you’re in a market where competition is low and you only want to do 1-2 deals every few months, then our Core plan is great for your side-hustle business.

If, however, you’re in a competitive market and you’re trying to grow a thriving, successful 3, 4, or 5+ deal-per-month business, then the truth is…

You’ll be disappointed by our Core plan’s performance…

When we created our Core plan, we invented it for the starting investor in a low competition market. Unfortunately, many of you – in high-competition markets with ambitious business-growth goals – are signed up for this plan…

And you’re not getting leads you expected…


Well, there are 4 reasons, in particular.

1. Carrot’s Core plan doesn’t offer monthly blog content packs…

I don’t need monthly blog content, you think to yourself, I already have a high-converting Carrot site… what difference will blog posts make?

The answer is simple.

Every piece of content that we deliver to our customers is optimized to rank for high-value keyword phrases in search engines. Which means that each piece of content gives your website a new opportunity to rank in Google and drive traffic to your website.

According to Neil Patel, across industries, “Year-over-year growth in unique site traffic is 7.8x higher for content marketing leaders compared to followers (19.7% vs 2.5%).”

More content = more traffic.

But it doesn’t just mean more traffic. It also means more leads in less time and with less work. In fact, having content on your website builds trust with prospects and solidifies that you’re an expert in your market.

And while content marketing isn’t all that important when running a side-hustle business in a low competition market, it’s absolutely paramount for ambitious business goals in competitive markets.

Now, you could blog every week (4 blog posts per month) and assuming that each blog posts takes you about 4 hours, that’s 16 hours of your time every month for just 4 blog posts.

Or you could hire a private writer to do it for you and pay at least $50/article. If you want to do 4 articles every month, that’ll cost you $200 for not much SEO impact.

Orrrr you could upgrade your Carrot plan and get more bang for your buck – our Content Pro plan offers 12 blog posts every single month and our Advanced Marketer plan offers 12 Content Pro blog posts plus 12 Premium blog posts every month… and you only pay $50 or $100 more per month than you’re paying right now.

2. Carrot’s Core plan doesn’t offer weekly coaching calls…

What can a coach teach you that you don’t already know?

Do you really need a coach?

The answer is yes.

Regardless of where you’re at in your business, what you’re trying to do, or how ambitious your goals are, you need a coach. Everyone does.


Because having a coach helps you grow. If you keep doing what you’re doing and thinking the way you think, how will you ever grow?

The answer is… you won’t.

You’ll stay where you are right now.

Consider, for instance, the average results of people who hire a life coach…

Are you happy with where you’re at right now?

If not, you need a coach.

But, what exactly are coaches good for? Here’s just a few things…

  1. Helping you push through discouraging situations.
  2. Helping you understand complex systems and processes.
  3. Helping you hit your ambitious goals.
  4. Helping you adopt the mindset of a high-performer.
  5. Crushing fears.
  6. And a whole lot more…

A coach is someone who’s been there, done that and knows how to help you get through the things you’re going through – one step at a time.

Usually, a coach would cost you several thousands of dollars per month (a good one, at least). But we offer you live weekly coaching as a part of our Content Pro plan ($100/month) and Advanced Marketer plan ($199/month).

You can join the weekly call and ask questions or just watch the recording later when it’s most convenient.

Here’s a snippet of inspiration from one of our most recent coaching calls…

3. Carrot’s Core plan doesn’t utilize our keyword ranking tracker…

More than likely, you joined Carrot because you want to generate more online leads and drive more traffic to your website passively.

If you’re on the Core plan in a competitive market, though, then you probably haven’t seen much of that happening…

And you’re discouraged.

Because SEO does pack a serious potential punch for your business.

In fact, Tyler Ford (and many of our other members) claim that SEO-leads are much higher quality than outbound marketing leads…

Problem is, in a competitive market, everyone is trying to cut their piece of the online lead generation pie. And if you’re not fighting hard enough with consistent blog content and well-optimized pages, then you’re getting the crumbs (if you’re lucky).

You need two things:

  1. Consistent blog content that’s optimized for search engines.
  2. The ability to track your rankings and better understand how well your website is performing in search engines.

Unfortunately, our Core plan offers neither of those things.

Of course, you could create your own blog content and buy another piece of software to track your keyword rankings…

But that’ll take more time and cost more money than it’s worth.

The better option is to upgrade to either our Content Pro plan (12 blog posts per month & 3 SEO keyword rankings per site) or our Advanced Marketer plan (24 blog posts per month in total & 20 SEO keyword rankings per site) where you’ll only pay $50 or $100 more per month than you’re paying right now.

4. Carrot’s Core plan only allows for 2 campaign tracking links…

Many real estate investors have wasted thousands of dollars on paid advertising. It might be Facebook ads, AdWords, or Bing, but the truth is the same – money, meet trash can.

Of course, that doesn’t have to be the case…

But it often is.

What makes the difference?

Well, I could write an entire article about the difference between a successful Facebook ads campaign and an unsuccessful one, but the article would end with an all-important section: How to track your Facebook ad campaigns and adjust accordingly.

Because the reality is, there’s no secret formula you can use to run a successful paid advertising campaign. Each market is different, each lead is different, and each business is different.

You need an advertising campaign that works for your business. 

And the only way to figure out what works for your business is to test your paid advertising campaigns as you run them and adjust accordingly.

Here’s how RJ Bates explains it after making $37,000 because of Carrot’s campaign tracking links…

And while Carrot’s Core plan let’s you get a taste with access to 2 campaign tracking links, our Content Pro plan and Advanced Marketer plan give you access to 15 campaign tracking links and an unlimited amount of campaign tracking links (respectively), helping you save money and make the most of your paid advertising efforts.

If you’re on the Carrot Core plan and you’re discouraged about your Carrot website and your online lead generation, chances are, you need to upgrade your plan.

On the Core plan, you’re missing out on many features that make thousands of Carrot members successful. As you saw in the case study videos above, many of them wouldn’t be successful without these features.

And while our Core plan can work wonders for investors and agents with small-business goals in low-competition markets…

It’s not going to work wonders for the rest of you.

For the cost of one nice dinner more per month ($30) you can upgrade your plan to Content Pro. For the cost of two nice dinners more ($100), you can get the best that Carrot has to offer.

We believe in your business…

Do you?
