Blogging Blueprint Class: Answering Frequently Asked Questions

Education & Training with ActiveRain University

I Want Answers!

Every day millions of people go online and ask Google to answer some question that is important to them. Every day you are being asked real estate related questions by your clients. Your blog can be should be the perfect convergance of these two events.

How often do you find yourself responding via email to some kind of question your client has asked you? Probably often. Why would you spend that time educating one client when you could just as easily make that response a blog post and then post it online for that person to read (send them a link to your blog post) as well as have it online for anyone else who might ask that same question of the search engines.

We see this kind of traffic ALL the time on ActiveRain. Consumers go online to find answers to frequently asked questions and they end up landing on a blog post written by a member of ActiveRain. So Let's learn the best way to write blog posts that answer frequently asked questions.

Blogging Blueprint Class: Answering Frequently Asked Questions

In this Blogging Blueprint class we will take a look at how to properly construct a blog post that answers a commonly asked question, including:

  • What should your keyword phrase be
  • How do people ask questions in the search engines
  • What calls to action can we place in these kind of blog posts
  • How should we format the blog posts so they look professional
  • What kind of questions are people asking

This is a very valid point to consider, especially seeing how we as agents often repeat ourselves in answering the same questons over and over.  Why not have an answer to a question become a blog post for all to see as opposed to just another email responded to.

Good ideas, Bob. It's especially meaningful if you incorporate a true story! It gives people an inside look on how you solved a problem or issue!
