After sitting on the fence for a long time about upgrading to an AR outside blog, I took the plunge about a week ago.
I'm amazed already at the results! I've had a spike in traffic to my website from my outside blog - about 43% of my visitors this week have come from my blog. Awesome, right?
It gets even better...
In that time frame I have received two very good buyer leads, one buyer that is just in the preliminary stages of their search and two seller leads.
All in the first week. If you're on the fence like I was - get off! :) Where else can you spend $19 a month and get these results?
It's great for teams as well - my team mate Nancy can contribute her articles to the outside blog too. That way we aren't trying to maintain up to date information on more than one blog. It's a great investment.
Hyper-local blogging along with the SEO provided by the outside blog is a recipe for Internet marketing success.
