Is my slip showing? 👀

 

No. 1 - Spicing up posts with catchy titles and photos gets attention! When blogging, engaging an intended audience, can make the phone ring for business. I highly recommend it for increased exposure.

 

A post I did a few years ago talks about an article that disparaged blogging, saying it has no business value. I never expected to be visited by mythical unicorns who fart real estate leads but blogging does work!

 

Unicorn farts and false promises.

 

I continue to get phone calls from past clients about local community market trends, monthly and yearly local events, sales and statistical driven reports. Some have resulted in closed transactions!

 

No. 2 - Be helpful when possible to others within the industry. This next post talks about professional standards and the importance of slowing down the process to avoid making hasty or costly mistakes.

 

That last brisk market had most of us rushing around to be in best offer position because that was the only way as a buyer agent to achieve their goals. No time or room for weak work ethics!

 

STOP Running with Scissors!

 

Most of use know how time should be spent but an occasional reminder can be most welcome. Offering insights to fellow bloggers shows care while being an active participant in the AR community.

 

My 14th year of blogging here is coming up in January 2023. Am still enjoying the online company of like-minded industry pro's, the education and ah-ha moments. And if someone happens to send business...

 

I welcome that too!

One thing for certain, Michael Jacobs, a well-written, targeted blog gets the right kind of attention and creates conversations!

It is FUN to come up with titles that pique people's curiosity enough to read through to the end. That is one of my goals, Lise Howe!

Fun posts are the ones that I prefer reading and they only play second fiddle to posts with lots of pictures of people's families, haha.

A variety of styles grab my attention, Brian England. A continuous wall of nothing but type with no spaces will get me to click off for sure, though!

Why, thank you for the compliment, Ray Henson! Everyone has their own style when writing a blog to engage readers on this platform and when they are consumer facing. A variety of subjects works well in my opinion!

There was a blog/website  written by a guy that was a tv and movie scout that posted all the cool places he had searched for throughout NYC. He moved out to California many years ago at this point- but I still go back to read his site from time to time. No business value in writting a blog, HA! I think when agents blog while it might be great to have some basics out there because you never know when that might come in handy- the blog should have some unique posts- which really distinguish you from any other agent in your market. I am instead choosing a podcast to separate me from the rest - but the form matter less than the fact that I have some truly original and valuable content...especially true for the episodes I have begun writing the scripts for but haven't yet recorded.  I don't know how engaged the public is for podcasts throughout the nation- but they are a big deal in my market and Hulu even created a show around the passion around podcasts (Only Murders in the Building with Steve Martin, Selena Gomez and  Martin Short).

Hi Wanda,
Creating headlines is one of my favorite parts of blogging. You, my friend, are the master.

Those who say blogging doesn't work are those who have never been patient enough to let it work... or haven't studied the strategies of successful blogging. There probably isn't any place better than ActiveRain to learn what you need to know about creating and sustaining a successful blog.

Your podcast looks to be promising, Adam Feinberg and setting yourself apart when blogging, advertising, in the local community does matter in this industry!

Well, thank you for the kind words. Too many want an instant return when first starting out, Carol Williams and quit soon after. The people here at ActiveRain are happy to share helpful information, it keeps me coming back!

Oh wow, I have questions!   "I never expected to be visited by mythical unicorns who fart real estate leads."  Are these SEO-generated Unicorn farts?  When they farted, how exactly were the leads delivered? 😂😂

They were distributed via a high velocity, fairy dust rainbow blaster, Scott Schulte! Many were useless and never reached their intended target though.
