blogging success is achievable...try these simple steps

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Alpine Lakes Real Estate Inc.,

 

The Subject of my blog – Brings questions from new Adirondack style homes in New Hampshireclients.

I know new construction, Adirondack style post and beam design homes and my newest clients wants an expert to help them buy or build a dream home. Can anyone do this for them....hell no, mine is the only post that specifically matches their search terms. The style , location and dream they have for a future home is directly spelled out in the title of a past post (Adirondack homes).

 

The Long tail search should be your niche-spelled out and defined.                                                          

Your passion or profession should be the title and be repeated several times in a successful post. Inquiries are driven to your links and or a call to action will be made when your blog is working the way Activerain was set up to work More about titles.

 

Rainmakers blog syndication will earn you great google recognition.

Whether I’m writing about rentals, radon or recreational real estate choices I’m seen as the area expert in my market. When I google terms or tags I associate with my posts and search the Internet using my name, I find I have thousands of related results (more about rants-reviews & research).

 

 

 

This past weekend I received confirmation blogging pays dividends.

A caller said “we would like to come up today and look at some of your listings”…great!. What type of home interest you? We found your blog about Adirondack homes in the White Mountains, each time we searched for Post and Beam or Adirondack style homes -your name came up as the guy in the know. We would like to see a few things listed between $700,000 and $1,300,000 if you have the time today. You bet I do…that is why I’m here.

 

Whether you sell mobile homes or mansions blog about your area of expertise.Tag your posts for the most exposure, add links to capture your target consumer, and repeat the key words in your blog a few times so the search engines pick up the content for the highest ranking when buyers are looking for your product. Happy Blogging to all my friends in the "Rain".

Richard, the consistency is hard for many Realtors...this doesn't happen over night, you have to stay with it and build up a good amount of content to drive inquiries to your site and to you directly.

Steve, great job, I use my blog site in different ways, mostly as a business tool, but sometimes as social commentary tool. Hey it's mine I pay for it, but your message is really where our blogging efforts should be focused, sometimes I just need to get outside of the lines

Gerry...this post is as much a reaffirmation for myself as it is an effort to help other bloggers realize their goals. You have to keep at it if you want to succeed in the Blogging world.

Steve...I am finally seeing more activity that I can attribute to AR in one way or another.  Much of it is indirect, but, Hey...who cares!

Bill, I have really worked on my blogging and a trip to raincamp last month was well worth it too.

Kathleen, I don't think the casual observer would assume these posts take some time to put together and a good amount of thought goes in to getting them  just right.

Nicely done Steve. And that phone call you received is just the proof that blogging, when done properly, can make the phone ring.

Craig...I don't know about you but I have tried to invite other agents in to the blogging (as a marketing tool) way you lead capture...most still seem to poo-poo it. Oh well their loss.

Laura, it is hard to be consistent when you write a great post and it brings little in the way of response, you just have to know these things take time to filter out to the target...and I promise they do!!
