We conducted a webinar Tuesday that was well-attended by real estate agents. Some of the interesting pieces I came away with were:

Blog Content

The goal is to write or post relevant content that your website visitors will find useful, that establishes you as a leader in your market and reveals your personality, creating trust. Sprinkle the text with keywords and relevant links to support the points you're making and you increase your search engine rankings.

Easy ways to add content to your own Blog, if you're not a writer:

  • Put together an interview on a topic by requesting by email answers from influencers in your market such as news anchors, business owners, civic leaders
  • Ask business partners or affiliates, such as mortgage lenders, home inspectors, title companies, escrow officers, to send authored articles and links to their website
  • Announce your involvement in non-profits, charitable events and organizations
  • Paste tables of recent sales or other industry stats
