Jennifer Fivelsdal - Rhinebeck Living

Jennifer Fivelsdal knows how to use a real estate blog to generate business.

You may not have heard of Jennifer, but she's well known in her community through her "Rhinebeck Living" blog on ActiveRain and her posts to Jennifer is getting leads and closing deals by focusing on her local community, Rhinebeck, New York.

Jennifer's blog covers everything in her area including upcoming events, scenic destinations, and local cuisine, with regular market reports and occasional real estate topics as well. From Bard College to a local produce stand to a local Thai restaurant, Jennifer presents the rich cornucopia of country living in the Mid-Hudson Valley.

Jennifer reports that she gets email from local readers as well as thank you notes from local businesses who appreciate being featured in her blog. If you've ever studied the Buffini System, you know the importance of reaching out to local businesses. Jennifer is doing that through her blog and she's getting results.

Some famous real estate bloggers scoff at platforms like ActiveRain, insisting that serious bloggers use WordPress or designer blogs costing thousands of dollars, but Jennifer's blog is proof that what you write is more important than the blogging platform you use to publish it. What really matters is appealing to people who live in your market and to people who are thinking about relocating to your market. That's not to say that Jennifer doesn't take advantage of the latest technology. On her blog, you'll also find plenty of videos and very cool slide shows.
