Professional real estate agents know exactly what it takes to keep the business going. Keeping in touch with your past, present, and future clients is the number one way to get new business, but when you are busy trying to keep up with your current transactions, who has time for marketing?
Putting up a sign is important, but how do you best put up a sign on the internet?
Sometimes you get so involved in other things going on around you, that the time you should be staying in touch with your clients and prospects just zips by and before you know it, you have closed your last transaction, and you have nothing in the pipeline. Getting on-going business is a continual effort and a stay-in-touch business. It is very well-known that if you don’t keep in touch with your clients and prospects, they will turn to another real estate agent. We all know there is a lot of competition and a slew of real estate websites. You want your clients and prospects to visit your website not someone else’s.
A good way to keep in touch is by blogging the latest real estate news. This effort does a couple of things for your website. One is focusing on certain keywords that will get you higher in the search ranks. Another is informing your prospects and clients that you have updated your blog and they should visit your website to get the latest news. This keeps your name in front of them at least once or twice a month, so when they need services, they will know who to call.
They may even refer your blog to people they know that are in the market to buy or sell a home, but that won’t happen if they don’t know about you. Did you know that you can hire a qualified writer to write your blogs and all you have to do ispost them to your website? Yes, there are sources out there that will do this for you at a reasonable price.
Editor's Note: This is an interesting post. At first I didn't like it, but then I realized it was really good because it answers a question we get all the time: "Can you handle writing about my niche?" We have so many great writers that we almost always can. I didn't like this post at first because it was too specific, but now I realize that every business is a niche or a local business, so having some example posts that address a specific niche is perfect. (For more about this series of posts, see this.) We know you are in a very specific niche. If you'd like us to help you write blogs just for you, just let us know. -- Scott
I spent years as a writer and editor, and wrote a nonfiction book before starting BlogMutt with Wade back in 2011. I love words, and I love working with the amazing staff and dedicated writers of BlogMutt who also love words, and know the power that they have. Also, this quote: "I love deadlines," Douglas Adams said. "I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by."
