In the past, we’ve talked about Realtor® blog post topics you can use to kick off an awesome set of posts.
We’ll give you 10 more blog post ideas at the end of this post – but in the meantime, we have a few simple ways to make blogging part of what you do every day. Regular blogging can help establish you as the subject-matter expert; you can set yourself apart by sharing your knowledge of the local communities and engaging your potential clients.
Make Blogging Part of Your Daily Routine
You don’t have to sit down and carve out a blog post every day. Some of the most successful blogs only post once per week – but their secret to success is keeping a finger on their readers’ pulses. Get into the habit of noting interesting news articles that discuss your areas; once in a while, search for gorgeous photos of the local landscape that you can share.
When you find them, post them to your blog. There’s nothing wrong with writing a short teaser about a news piece (in fact, it’s actually good for your search engine optimization… but that’s another blog post).
“The City of Franklin is thinking about modifying an ordinance that would allow garage apartments, carriage houses and other add-ons to be built on downtown properties. The ordinance-change would be the first in years, and city planner Kelly Dannenfelser says that it could expand housing options for locals. Read the full story here.”
Do it early, before your day gets in the way. Even if you only have time for that short teaser post, it’s best to make it a habit to add something to your blog on a specific day, early in the morning (as you’re having your first cup of coffee… or maybe your second).
