Earlier this week I attended the Buffalo Niagara Association of Realtors Technology Summit.
Several people at my table as Keith Garner spoke about blogging, they would say "Oh I couldn't do that" and I just sat there quietly thinking that is good. I don't have much to worry about in competition.
He showed examples of blogs that have great success, Teresa Boardman and Jay Thompson up on the screen, sites that I have followed since joing ActiveRain.
Then Keith goes and tells everyone to go get on ActiveRain to learn about blogging, get into the habit but and this is the most important but:
Get your own BLOG and write to the consumer there, not on ActiveRain.
Hmm interesting, something I already knew. Use ActiveRain for learning. So if you have been around ActiveRain for awhile and you have been blogging to the consumer how is it working for you? You can easily start a free account on Blogger, Wordpress or Typepad. You can also do a self-hosted site on these platforms or the myrid of providers out there including the Tomato and RSS Pieces.
Visit my site at www.BuffaloNiagaraRealEstateHomeSales.com you too can develop your own! For those in the Buffalo area that want a Realtor who understands the technology and how to leverage it to their advantage, call me!
