I sometimes think of the virtual world as being out there in the great beyond; for me that brings to mind images of the sky. A new image in that sky is one of a ghostwriter.
One of the newest services being offered by freelance writers and virtual assistants is that of a blog ghostwriter. Blogging has become an important part of the internet and real estate agents in-the-know are taking advantage of it to meet other professionals, those in their community and potential clients. To be effective, blogging takes a commitment of time to make it a successful endeavor. Blogging must be done consistently and often.
Real estate agents are joining celebrities and CEOs, among other professionals, who are using this service. Due to their busy lifestyles they find that blogs are beneficial. Unfortunately, they just do not have the time to write and maintain them, much less to do it consistently and often.
Since virtual assistants know their clients, they are able to write blogs in a style and tone that is reflective of that particular client. Real estate virtual assistants are able to blog in a knowledgeable manner because they spend many hours per week doing extensive research in regards to the marketplace and the industry itself to provide their clients with quality service in website maintenance, marketing, and now blogs.
A virtual assistant is an excellent option for those who dislike writing or feel that their writing skills are not their best asset. A real estate virtual assistant is able to create quality relevant blog content and can aid you in a variety of ways. For the low-key, "I-don't-know-and-don't-wanna-know" types, the virtual assistant can do it all.
The best blogs are those where the agent and the assistant work together. You can give the virtual assistant a list of blog ideas that they can use to create your blog. You can submit a rough draft of your blog and your virtual assistant will polish it up and then post it.
There will be times when you just won't feel like writing or you will experience writer's block or you may just need a little time off. For those times you can call on your virtual assistant to temporarily help you out. Virtual assistants can create a blog from a list of ideas, personal information or stories which you have supplied and are kept on file. The virtual assistant can also create a blog from instructions that are given by phone or email. Get an idea, jot it down, then fax or email it and viola you have a blog.
The virtual assistant can do it all and they are able to write excellent content for you. However, the best person to respond to the comments and inquiries you receive is you. Sometimes agents will spend large amounts of money and time on a marketing campaign but do not take the time to do the follow-up needed to make that campaign a success. Don't make that mistake with your blog. Get assistance from a virtual assistant blogger so that you will have the time to keep up with (the reason for the blog in the first place) your readers and potential clients
Another great aspect of using the services of a virtual assistant to create or help you create articles for your blog is their reasonable pricing.
For those of you, who feel that ghostwriting just isn't quite fair, remember top producers know "the art of delegating". No one discounts the services of a transaction coordinator, marketing assistant or a secretary. The use of a virtual assistant in this area is really no different.
