There’s always something to howl about

Blogoff Post #25: Real estate weblogging? Who knew . . . ?

From the Online Marketing Blog’s “25 Tips for Marketing Your Blog”, here is tip number nineteen:

Post regularly. If it’s a news oriented blog, 3-5 times per day. If it’s an authoritative blog, 3-5 times per week, but each post must be unique and high value.

This is hard. Not what I’m doing now, but real estate weblogging in general.

Real estate is a demanding job, with very long hours, and a lot of intense but irregular activity. How are you supposed to keep up a regular blog-posting schedule as well?

I don’t know, but it’s something you’ll have to work out if you want to make real estate weblogging work for you. People have to know they can depend on you to make regular, creditable weblog entries. As hard as it is to get a reader, it’s very easy to lose one…

    I always encourage our Realtor clients to blog. Very often their reponse is, “but it takes so much time!” to which I reply, “How much time do you spend networking [offline]?”

    that’s usually when the lightbulb goes on.

    Blogging is hard work but there is harder work.

    Excellent observation. I hadn’t even thought about it that way.
