We are very fortunate that the Staff at Active Rain has made these wonderful blogging blueprints and templates to help us with our blogging efforts. I am planning to start using them on a regular basis, since time has become an issue lately. Have you noticed these blogging templates to the right as you write your posts? I have placed them into a draft for future use. Thanks Active Rain for making blogging easier.

ActiveRain Gives You the Blueprint for Successful Blogs

No two bloggers are going to have the exact same style. In this regard, bloggers are like snow flakes (lame! Be over already winter!) custom hot rods! Each one with their own unique style and approach. But there are cetain kinds of posts that we believe every blogger should have in their blog.

Our Blogging Blueprint Series is designed to give you a map by which to create some of the most valuable posts for your real estate blog. The idea is, the first time you create a post of this nature, you have something to help guide you. We hope to guide you both the visual layout of the post as well as the content. Our blueprints are designed to help ensure that some of the most important aspects of a blog post are present when you create your posts (think calls to action and things designed to help your blog posts generate leads, prospects and ultimately business for you)

What Does a Blueprint Contain:

Each blueprint comes with a template of some sort that you can follow while creating your own blog posts. There is also a video recording of our Community Evangelist Bob Stewart walking you through the specifics of each type of post including explaining the layout and the type of content you will want to create for each type of post.

Perhaps the most important part of these blueprints is the discussion and placement of your calls to action. These links and images can be the difference between getting leads and not getting leads from your real estate blog.

I have learned so much about blogging and real estate, not only from the experts at Active Rain, but all the expert agents and other people who are so willing to offer up their advice on what works, or how they handled a certain situation.

Hi Jerry!  Thanks for re-blogging this.   I just clicked on the  
Generate 1000's of Clicks Blogging about Condo Complexes and watched the video.  It gave a good reminder to write "evergreen" market reports so they do not become dated.  That's something I had forgotten about.

Jerry, Thanks for the re-blog. I need to check some of these blueprints. I tried to copy one to use but I think it would not allow any copying.
