“Blogging Can Keep You on Top”

“Blogging Can Keep You on Top”

 

 

 

I spoke to a relatively new real estate agent the other day. I had met with her about a year ago shortly after she was licensed. One of the topics we discussed was blogging, one of my favorite topics. She told me that part of her training was in the area of social media, especially Facebook. She told me that was one way she was coached on reaching out to family and friends.

 

OK, so you have let you friends and family know what you do, so I asked her what that had accomplished and she quickly let me know, she couldn’t make a living going that route. So, what is next? She wanted to talk about blogging as she had been reading many of my blogs on Linkedin.

 

She asked me if I ever ran out of things to write about. Not a question I haven’t been asked before and I told her NO, Every day there are things going on that I can write about. I started asking her how her day went and what she did.

 

She told me that her day was spent looking for a property for a customer she met while waiting in line at the grocery store. After asking her a number of questions she said she was starting to get the idea. I gave her a few mortgage suggestions, but could see she was still hesitant.

 

I love to blog and fortunately there are a number of blogging sites that I get to share my blogs on including Activerain, Linkedin, Wordpress, Twitter, Facebook, the Patch and a handful of smaller sites.

 

What Advice would you have given her?
