Real Estate by Debbie Reynolds: Ask An Ambassador- What Should Realtors Blog About?

Ask An Ambassador- What Should Realtors Blog About?

Ask An Ambassador- What Should Realtors Blog About?
blogging or questions


This is asked often by new members of ActiveRain and also by those that happen upon writing block.  If you are just beginning to blog you may be questioning whether you have anything of interest to write about. First let me answer that by saying yes you do.

You have things going on in your local market that the public needs to know about. They need to know about neighborhoods, selling trends, your new listings and open houses. They need to know about financing options, places of interest, events and the basics of buying or selling a home.

They need to know about your specialties and what you are involved in so they can get to know you better. They will want to know what is fun to do in the area and the lessons you have learned along the way of life and in selling real estate.

Are you getting the drift? Let people get to know you. Let them know what you do and love. Let them know how good you are at your job by showing your expertise. Share market data and help educate them about the facets of a real estate transaction. Let your emotions show so you seem real. People like to do business with people they trust and they learn to trust by getting to know you.

Think like a consumer. Answer the questions they might have about home ownership, buying, selling or home maintenance. The public loves FAQ posts and we can write on these topics daily.

Bottom line is the public wants to be in the know about real estate, the economy, interest rates and your community. Fun facts and personal discoveries are also good subjects to write about.

 

The key is to write, get in a routine and as you do it, you will get better. Remember to make the font easy to read, leave some white space and add a little interest and color by adding a photo, clipart or graph. Get to writing and the followers will come.

This is good advice to share.

My added advice is to include at least one photograph or image.

Great advice, Debbie.  And, not just for new members but even the old guys like me.

Hi Debbie! You know I totally agree with every word in this post!!

I have to say that I love getting to know people by reading their blogs - I've heard so many times from folks who found me online and will inform me of things that they know/learned from reading my blog!

If you don't think anyone is reading, think again!!

Debbie Reynolds - many of them just do not venture into blogging just because of this reason.

They feel that the consumers know everything so why should they blog?

There's always something to learn from you and I would never expect anything less but the best advice

A lot of us feel like calling to help a lot of people and to reach a lot of people through the blog, exactly. :) Praful Thakkar

Debbie, your post is loaded with great advice for newbies and even others, who are hesitate to post.

these are always wonderful posts to read - even those of us on the AR regularly still wonder what to write about some times - Dick Greenberg is a great example of making something from nothing - but most of us don't have that skill set and need some helpful hints

Posted by Lise Howe, Assoc. Broker and Attorney Licensed in DC, MD, VA, (Long and Foster) about 1 month ago

Good morning, Debbie Reynolds the  key to blogging is to create a habit... and that happens with consistent blogging.... it will become a habit....

Posted by Barbara Todaro, "Franklin MA Homes" (RE/MAX Executive Realty ) about 1 month ago

Excellent blogging tips Debbie! It's important to not be all business when you blog....let people get a feeling of really knowing you!

Something old, something new. It's always good to review your approach to anything you're doing in life, in this case blogging and keeping it interesting, nice post Debbie.

Good basic pointers for newbies and reminders for all,

This post reminds me of the famous "first step" we all hear about. One step leads to another and then another and before long, one has a journey on their hands

Debbie Reynolds  Local information is what people thirst for when searching the Internet

The potential list of topics is endless! Just do it !

Posted by Michael J. Perry, Lancaster, PA Relo Specialist (KW Elite ) about 1 month ago

Local information about local developments are always popular in my area. More info than just "what's for sale," which is easily found most places. :)

Posted by Foster Smith Summerville, Summerville & Charleston Homes for Sale SC Realtor (Carolina One Real Estate) about 1 month ago

Agreed! Everyone has something to say. Realizing that can help reduce writer's block. Thank you for sharing.

Hi Debbie

I'm glad to see the focus on SHOULD here, since the emphasis then is on what we, as professionals, should be educating consumers about.

Debbie, you have laid out a simple answer. Getting a routine is my task.

Thanks

I find that blogging about specific neighborhoods is helpful, and Active Rain has the Hyper Local Pages section that lets you make the post more searchable.

Posted by Lee Keadle, Keadle Real Estate Group (Carolina One Real Estate) about 1 month ago

Besides all the topics you mentioned Debbie Reynolds , there is always something crazy that happens in the business to write about; either because it's a learning experience or just something crazy funny or both. The possibilities are endless !!
