The Importance of Blogging

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Virtual Florida Tours

As I have been blogging for more than a year more or less once a week it started to sink in...blogging is extremely powerful, however to make it have its effect yyou need to persistently participate, and the effect increases exponentially over time!  The posts stick, and keep there just waiting to be found! 

I have been seriously posting for more than one year, Around 130 posts.  I cannot expect to reach the other bloggers that are in front of me in active rain, but I am trying hard to close the gap!

As I get more people commenting on my blog and following me on twitter and facebook I noticed that the effort is worth while.  The digital footprint is growing, my website has climbed in the Google page search to the front page, Google Analytics is showing more search results leading to website each week...now despite not all the searches and click change into a business offer some are already coming in.

I can feel the internet is at last paying back its effort, finally I am getting the occasional costumer, I just have to  to continue writing posts that contain useful information for prospects. 

I just need to have enough patience. If you need information on how to increase your Internet marketing experience do not hesitate to contact me at 305 331 8960 or just click here

Great post Gabriel...blogging is not an easy quick solution...it takes dedication and time, as you and I know, and it will bring rewards.

Google a topic and when you see your work coming up on page one as the local authority...well, then the arm twisting to blog on active rain will not be needed. The hand cuffs come off, and it is free and easy to get the google juice, the active rain juice.

It does indeed take dedication and consistency.  I strategically picked my key words and wrote "to them" for nearly 8 months before I hit page 1...but blogging did that for me.  Stay the course.

you must commit to a minimum number of blogs per week...and I think it is a good idea to pick favorite things you like to write about...say restaurants and write about them...it helps you become the area expert.

To many folks think after they have posted one or two posts that the phone should be ringing.  It doesn't work that way.  There are also bloggers who have posted for years and the business isn't pouring in either.  The trick is to write what your target audience wants to read about and give them a reason to call you.
