RainCamp - 08:00 - Bob Stewart - 5 Steps to a Successful Blog

Services for Real Estate Pros with Happy Grasshopper

Bob Stewart shares a preview of what we will learn tomorrow at RainCamp Dallas!


  1. Support - Have you abandoned your blog? One reason is because you may have typed into a void - AR provides an audience, that helps you grow and get started.

  2. Community - If you are a local business, blogging about local events, subdivisions, neighborhoods, and local business is a must do.  People searching for communities and subdivisions close on homes faster than other leads.

    "If you can help a small business show up for their business name or business keyword in Google because you blog about them - you will be their hero!"

    *Tomorrow - more on how to do this!
  3. Picture Formatting - Learn how to format your post, use bold, add pictures.  Tag your pictures!

  4. Calls to Action - Great way to drive traffic and engage traffic.  Use your signature for this - you can get buttons for this at http://cooltext.com
    ***Tip - buttons work the best as calls to action.

  5. Strong Search Engine Optimization - More on this tomorrow.  Not Google's tips, AR's tips that they have found to work.


What Bob didn't mention is staying in front of your audience. Relationship Marketing is a great way to stay in front of your audience and keep you and your business in the forefront of their minds.

See you tomorrow with more on these points - Now it is time for snacks!!!

Cool text is very cool.  I love that those attending share information because I don't think there will ever be a Rain Camp in Hawaii.
