Here at the Tomato, we usually take the role of educators with the aim of covering a topic from many angles and with as much context as possible. This time we are asking for some help for you to provide us with the angles and context that will develop into an article. We would like to use this opportunity to illustrate the power of transparent participation (A.K.A. "Mob Wisdom"). Basically, we want to write an article with our readers, for our readers. We present the topic, and you help us fill in the body.
The topic we are presenting as a platform for discussion and participation is:
"The Power Of The Team In Today's Real Estate"
1. The Business Of The Real Estate Team.
What are the advantages that come with being part of a real estate team?
What are the drawbacks?
How does being a team affect the way you market your services?
How does the team affect the experience had by the consumer?
How does being a part of a team affect your your life, positively and negatively?
What is the best division of labor/responsibilities for a team?
2. The Blogging Of The Real Estate Team.
What are the benefits of team blogging?
What are the drawbacks?
Does more content mean more of the 'right' traffic?
Does the message of many help incubate the potential client?
How to organize massive amounts of content.
3. Who knows?
What we are asking of you is to provide your opinions, input, knowledge, spin, comments, criticism, and support of the topics to help bring the article together.
Audience provided content (in the below comments) will be included, with due credit, in the final draft.
This Tuesday, May 22nd, we will be posting the first outline of the our article, inspired by your participation. We have some direction in mind, but the truth is, we have no idea where this will end up.
Our goal is to have the final draft ready to publish, here on the Tomato for the following Monday, May 28th.
We need your help.
So, whether you are a seasoned pro with your own well established real estate blog, or a baby blogger right out of the gates, we want to hear your input on this one! To participate, simply make comprehensive comments below regarding the above topics. We’ll do all the rest.
Thanks for your participation!

May 23rd Update On: "Let's Write An Article Together"
In last week’s post “Let’s Write An Article Together”, we had mentioned that we would like to have a rough draft of our collaborative article up by Tuesday, May 22nd.
Obviously, that day has come and now passed. So what’s the excuse for the failure to deliver?
We received some great participatory comments both here and from the ActiveRain community, and they keep coming in (and we invite them to continue to do so). We also brought on a second ‘main’ author for the article, Landon Ray of MoonRay Marketing.
So the ‘coming together’ of this article has grown, and in turn has us asking for your patience as we put up the rough draft as quickly as possible.
Our new (and improved) publish date for the rough draft is now Monday, May 28th and the publish date for the final draft will be the following Monday, June 4th.
So, by all means, feel free to keep those collaborative comments coming.
