1. Blogging Works
The simple formula of blogging regularly to a well defined audience pays off.
Most agents never get to experience this success because they:
- Can't commit to blogging a few times a week
- Quit before they start to see results
So how long does it take to generate leads from blogging?
The answer is "it depends." But you can help speed up your success by blogging with a specific target in mind. Instead of thinking that you need to be on the front page (of Google) for "San Diego real estate" in order to put yourself in a position to generate leads from your blogging, aim to be found by your target audience based on their specific needs.
Chances are, once you have really defined EXACTLY who you are aiming for, you realize that the phrase that they are searching with is not "San Diego real estate." It is more specific--a community, a niche, a situation, a type of property. When you are focused on a specific target, you can't approach it broadly.
For some, this success comes in a matter of weeks; for others, it can take months. But if you understand the above, and commit to writing, IT WILL WORK.
2. Blogging is Easy
Blogging has made them relevant, current, competitive and savvy. By definition it is just writing and publishing an entry to your blog/website.
