Helping REALTORS® become part of the blogosphere

Create Your Blog, HAR Will Promote It

REALTORS® are becoming more and more creative in their online marketing efforts to engage new clients and to market the properties they have for sale. These new avenues include social networking sites and personal blogs. If you haven’t already, consider starting a blog to help build your image as an expert in your particular market.

A blog is a type of Web site that enables open communication and provides agents with a platform to express their insights. From a business perspective, there are several potential reasons to blog. Blogs are no different from media outlets like video, print, audio, presentations and so on. They all deliver results - but of varying kinds. The types of results you can expect from blogs are mainly about stronger relations with important target groups.
