Marketing Properties With A Listings Blog

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with R & D Art

Marketing properties with a listings blog just became easy. Imagine walking into a listings presentation appointment armed with the ability to have your client’s property reach the top of the search engines quickly. The great thing is, there are no black hat tricks used to accomplish this. Another great thing is, you do not have to log out of one site and into another to post to this additional blog. Everything is done on the same platform and is almost seamless.

One of the things with Postlets and VFlyers is that they require more room that what is typically on a page. To make sure that we have enough room for this to set up properly, we just remove the sidebars all together. Therefore, the property is front and center and is getting all of the attention that it requires. Also, once a property is listed in PREP, it does not take long for it to climb to the top of the search engines.

Now, before many of you ask why “categories” or “tags” cannot accomplish this, let me explain this; neither of these are indexed by the search engines. If they were, the bots would crash any network once they started to crawl them. So, having the additional blog gains the ability to have ALL the listings found in a search in one spot. It also allows for ALL the listings to be ‘index, follow’ and this is huge as it will increase your SEO.

As with any additional blog add on, there is a one time charge of $100. Once that fee is paid, it will take a couple of hours to be setup. If you have questions, please call us at 865-951-0522 or email me.

Interesting concept...but it looks like yet another different system that needs to be updated.  Am I wrong?

Robert, if you are using Postlets, VFlyers, or any other the listings forms, most of the updating can be done right in the HTML. From what I have seen, the only updating that tends to need to be done with this is changing the price and that is definitely accessible in the HTML.

As for another system, this is our whole drive at PREP. We are attempting to bring all the tools together in one place so that it is easier to manage.

Leave it to PREP to Step it Up a Notch.  GREAT idea and, of course, I am ON BOARD.

Danny, so you post on Postlets and it is posted on this blog? It sounds great, but as usual, I'm a bit confused. I will email you :) Also, what does "index, follow" mean? That the blog is indexed and followed? (I know what 'follow' means - that Google tracks it) but don't understand the index part.

Sharon, you can use postlets, vFlyer, real bird, or about any other system that is used to place a property online and embed it into this page and the page will provide an individual page for the property as well as an indexed page for the properties that are listed for your site.

As for "indexed, follow" it is telling the search engines to index the page and that it is a trusted page that it needs to track.
