LinkedIn Got Me a Real Estate Writing Job!
There are a myriad of ways to increase internet awareness and direct contact with clients and other business associates about your service as a real estate professional without having to do double the work.
Here’s Just One Way
I happened upon a publisher, Tracey Hicks of a very targeted Portland newspaper, called All Things Real Estate by getting my business connections flourishing on LinkedIn. It’s been a new platform that I hadn’t done much with until just the last few months. It helps that ActiveRain has a Share button (top right of your blog, along with Facebook, G+1(Google) and Twitter, just click on each everytime you post).
We connected and through a short series of messages back and forth I got a writing job! I mentioned to Tracey Hicks, the founder of All Things Real Estate that I am blogging almost daily on ActiveRain and that I also write for our local paper in Vernonia, The Vernonia’s Voice. She was excited to have me write for her paper with an audience directed at real estate offices and related businesses as well as online to other business associates. And what is so easy is that I am already writing these posts and articles. So, in essence, the repetition literally gets the word out in front of more people, in different worlds and I’ve only written it ONCE. Out of one article, I can get, at the very least, five times the benefit.
In less than an hour, you can quadruple your reach to a wide variety of people, both in your business AND in your neighborhood. And you can also barter for advertising by writing the article for free.
