In the beginning, I was hesitant to use Pinterest to market my blog because I didn’t understand that it is a search engine, NOT a social media platform. Once I figured out that Pinterest is a massive traffic generator for a blog and website, I knew I had to work it into my strategy. At first, things were pretty slow-going. Then I discovered Tailwind and their Tibes and WHOA BABY did my traffic take off like craaayyyyyzzzzyyy! In fact, my Pinterest following went from 0-25,000+ in less than a year thanks to Tailwind Tribes.
Tailwind allows you to both schedule and collect analytics on all of your Instagram and Pinterest posts. They are constantly adding new cool features like being able to hide your hashtags on your Instagram posts but their most impactful feature is their collection of Tribes. Tribes are groups of people that co-promote one another’s pins around a given topic like blogging, marketing, web design, real estate etc.. For just a couple of dollars a month I have seen a dramatic increase in my website’s traffic, my number of followers on Pinterest, and my affiliate product sales.
You can get started with Tailwind for free AND get a free month of Tailwind Tribes here, courtesy of yours truly.
Livestream is the newest content marketing tool I just discovered and I am pumped out of my freaking mind about it! You already know that Live videos get far more traction on Facebook and Youtube than pre-recorded videos. I talk about that a lot in this article about dominating with Facebook Live. Of course, you can save your Live feeds to your Facebook Page and Youtube channel when they are over, but they won’t be able to attract nearly as many people as when they are in the middle of the live stream. I’m obsessed with Livestream because it allows you to take any pre-recorded videos that you have and trick Facebook and Youtube into thinking that they are a Live feed so both platforms will push your video to the top of search results and newsfeeds to help you get more views, likes, subscribes, etc.! For anyone like me with a whole library of recorded videos, this is a gigantic game changer! I insist you start using Livestream today to start exploding your traffic to your real estate vlog.
If you are like most business owners, you’ve heard of Clickfunnels by now. They’ve been around for quite a while now and that is only because they really are amazing at increasing landing page conversion rates. I love to use Clickfunnels to grow my email list using my free content upgrades. For example, if I write a blog post about how to start a real estate blog, I can offer a free real estate blogging checklist through Clickfunnels that will require people to subscribe in order to get the free list.
