A good way to ensure that happens is by creating great quality content in the form of a blog. Real estate professionals should use blogging as a key part of their Internet marketing strategy.

3. Make it Easy to Share – When creating a real estate blog, think about how your readers can help you spread your content. Provide ways that your blog posts can be shared.

Realtor Marketing Tips: What To Blog About

Big Block Realty 100% Commission California Brokerage

Realtor Blogging Tips “What to Blog About”….

Watch the video here:

If you want to build a powerful brand on the web, then blogging can be a critical part of your overall strategy. Attend this session with leading technology expert Amy Chorew and walk away with a clear understanding of how you too can use your well strategized blog as a powerful marketing and communication tool to drive business.

1. Near holidays, timely posts can drive HUGE traffic to your blog.

2. Tell it from your perspective. If you think you don’t have one, then you don’t have much business being a blogger.

3. Getting your readers to subscribe to your blog is crucial. Make it VERY CLEAR how to subscribe via email and rss reader.

4. Copy/Pasting entire articles you find on the Wire to your blog = Fail. Grab a paragraph and leverage your own opinion.

5. Do an Interview Post with a local business owner and it will dominate the SE’s for their business. Good power to have!

6. Never, I mean never, under estimate pointing out the obvious. What’s clear to you is that “a ha” moment of others.

7. Looking for your blogging voice? Tell a great real estate story, a story that has a point with value for your ideal reader.

8. Write posts with the intention of making your blog better. Each article is someone’s first impression of you.

9. Want good SEO content about yourself on your blog? Interview yourself with some keyword rich questions. It’ll be fun too

10. Use Sub Headers to break up the different ideas or sections of your blog articles. Easier to read, and huge for SEO!
