Would you like to use blogging as an effective tool in getting more business in the Real Estate field. I used to spend countless hours reading and commenting on blog posts. Don't get me wrong the networking was wonderful and I have made lots of friendships. I learned along the way, however, that spending all day in one spot making making comments or writing for other Realtors is not going to earn you a fantastic income. In fact it is not a productive use of your time at all.
For those of you that do want to generate more business listen closely!! If you want to truly make an exceptional living selling Real Estate you need to be well versed in SEO and social media. We live in a technology world today. We all know that buyer's and seller's are turning to the internet to find someone to work with. They way more and more people pick a Realtor to use is far different than it used to be. Many consumers will go right to Google and punch in something like "Realtor's, city and state". If you are not on the first page then you can forget about getting a consumer's business.
Whether you a Realtor in a small town, like Brevard, North Carolina or any other industry professional you need to understand this can help you make an incredible income. What I am going to tell you will be the most important advice you have heard in a while. Get on Google Plus and use it everyday!!!
Google is eventually going to start showing results based upon a user's profile! Much like the Active Rain point system, those that share information within Google can get a Google+, a Google share and comments on the articles, pictures and videos they post.
You obviously need to be there and participate to get your profile to rank. One of the things I have been doing over at G+ besides sharing some of my better Real Estate blog posts, is posting articles about how to use Google+ and build your profile. The first thing you should do is sign up for a Google account and fill out a profile if you don't have one.
More than 170 million people have upgraded to Google+, enjoying new ways to share in Search, Gmail, YouTube and lots of other places. It's still early days, and there’s plenty left to do, but we're more excited than ever to build a seamless social experience, all across Google.
A critical piece of this social layer is a design that grows alongside our aspirations. So today we’re introducing a more functional and flexible version of Google+. We think you’ll find it easier to use and nicer to look at, but most importantly, it accelerates our efforts to create a simpler, more beautiful Google.
Navigation you can make your own
One of the first things you’ll notice is a new way to get around the stream. Instead of static icons at the top, there’s a dynamic ribbon of applications on the left. This approach comes with lots of perks, but some of our favorites include:
- You can drag apps up or down to create the order you want
- You can hover over certain apps to reveal a set of quick actions
- You can show or hide apps by moving them in and out of “More”
Taken together, these powers make it easier to access your favorites, and to adjust your preferences over time. We've also built the ribbon with the future in mind, giving us an obvious (and clutter-free) space for The Next Big Feature, and The Feature After That. So stay tuned.
Conversations you’ll really care about
Once you’ve upgraded to Google+, it’s easy to share with your circles from just about anywhere. We’re dreaming bigger, though. We're aiming for an experience that fuses utility with beauty—one that inspires you to connect with others, and cherish the conversations that unfold. Today’s update is an important step in this direction, including:
- Full bleed photos and videos that'll make you really proud to post
- A stream of conversation "cards" that make it easier to scan and join discussions
- An activity drawer that highlights the community around your content
