Unlimited potential and literally 2 closed escrows so far!

(I get a lot of rental opportunities I do refer away to my property manager too, as I'm only looking for sales. I don't have a rental service for tenants, only investors & landlords).

A lot! I have trained my market area to read my posts and they always comment on what I have to say. It's in concert with my print advertisement..it all works together!

To-date, pretty much none. One agent referral that has still come to pass and probably won't for a while.

I think it has been 5 or 6 closings. That is some serious coin in addition to all I have learned.

An AR rule of thumb I noticed several years ago, based on users comments was that - Success & (and consistent) leads from AR comes on the other side of 1,000 well written and targeted blog posts.

I'm still ramping up here in the Rain, but my other sites do keep me "out front" of the pack of Realtors here. I am assuming in time the Rain will just add more juice to that.

This is a good question.  It appears that most agents are not getting a lot of referrals, but the SEO is working.  I know an agent that did get a very good referral and says blogging works.

Being active on AR and other sites increases our chances of being 'found'.  No matter where I meet people, including my pre-license classes, people say they feel like they know me.  We need that online presence to be found. ( I might have to develop my answer into a post.)
