Life Experiences Make Great Blog Content

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Keller Williams Realty Lancaster
Another source for creating content on my blog is my life experiences. This involves my personal life and professional life. I use both my current life experiences and past life experiences.
 
Some persons draw a hard and fast line between personal and professional. I do not. Life is never this simple. What happens personally impacts my

professional life and vice versa.

Some simple rules I follow
:
  • Try to make yourself the villain in stories and allow others to be the hero.
  • Create what I have learned when needing to discuss the negative behavior. This allows me to take responsibility for myself in the midst of some troubling situations.
  • Do not disclose information which may harm a client or sabotage a current pending deal.
  • Do not disclose information which may harm you or create liability professionally.

People, potential clients and other interested parties are drawn to these types of stories. It helps them develop trust before even meeting me. Life experiences are a rich source of content for blog posts.

There is a person behind the blog, advertising but also realize that the buyers time is limited, they want something helpful, gas and time saving. Delivery of thorough local area, the property listings in it is key. Be the little red hen and ease up on the you you you mirror mirror on the wall ego pieces though. Service with a little transparency, human element in the right mix can cause more round trips to the real estate closing table.

great post thank you for sharing, i also believe that personal life is also business life, because our business is so relationship based we are akways "ON" so it is intertwined with our "OFF Hours".

Cal: Nice post- I completely agree with you.  I'm more engaged reading about someone's personal experience vs. a generic market report.  Thank you for sharing!
