Using My Blog To Engage Others

How can you use your blog to engage others?

 

 

Since 2006, I have been blogging on ActiveRain, and here are

some of the positive results

I just started making a list of some of the ways that I engage others.

When blogging, I write to and for specific people, including other agents, AR members, friends, and anyone interested in Real Estate.  I write what is happening in RE, may be an inspiration, perhaps a household tip, kudos to another Realtor® or vendor.  If reading another post that I don't agree with, I will write one with my point of view.

But most of all, I blog for my buyers and sellers to bring attention to my unique group of listings and the individual home buyers.

 

Here are some of those topics

 

I blog my properties multiple times.

I blog many photos.

I blog the distinctive features of my homes.

I blog the house from the seller's view and the letters they write to their home.

I blog my open houses,

I blog when they go under contract or are TOO LATE

I blog when we go to settlement.

I blog when there is a situation during a transaction.

I blog letters and testimonials from satisfied, happy buyers and sellers.

I blog about the questions received during the week and on my radio show.

I blog when a specific buyer is looking for a one of a kind home.

I blog about answering the phone,

I blog when finding something new that others might want or need.

 

And I encourage everyone, not just agents, to read my blog. When others tell me a story or give me an idea, I may blog it.

Love when the public calls the radio show,  sends me a note, email, or text. I love it when I share a situation during a transaction, and the client says they remember the case from my posts. Many more are reading than are commenting.

Do you see how I can engage others through blogging? 

How are you engaging people with your writing?

Hi Margaret,
There is no question that blogging works. Sadly, most people don't have the patience to see results, which is good for those who do!

Bravo Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland! This list of topics to build reader engagement is truly high quality. Do you ever encourage readers to provide their own contributions (e.g. asking for guest posts or photos)?

Great run down of inside the mind of the blogger and what you select for topics Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland ! The next two blogs are always mentally on the back burner in the head of a consistent blogger who builds engagement. You have to think what would I want out in the audience and talk to that one person providing them with what you would want if you were them. That's what broadcasting is all about....  show and tell to many that happens one at a time.
