So, I guess starting a blog has been made very easy with the advent of wordpress, Joomla and others CMSes. The problem however is that there are three things that your blog needs food. Content!!! You may put other forms of content; video, audio, infographics, but SEO optimized real estate articles are king when it comes to driving constant traffic to your blog and creating engagement. So, obviously, for your real estate agent website, you need: 1. SEO optimized articles 2. Geo-targeted or location specific to an extent 3. Engaging articles So, you can create this yourself. You probably don't know how to do this. Do you? There is an article writing service that will help you create any length or age-specific type of articles about real estate. Drop the pen and hire a professional!

Alana,
I am trying to blog myself using Placester. I have had pretty good blogs. I re-post blogs from good sources and add a paragraph or two in the beginning to make it mine. I've also done blogs totally written by myself. I don't know if it is effective though. I haven't gotten any traffic from those blogs. Is hiring a professional expensive, and is there a preferred method to posting blogs to capture audience attention? I share them on tweets, but most of my twitter followers are SEO related people??? Any suggestions?

Chad

adding a paragraph does not make it yours. You are stealing from legitimate authors and you run the possibilty of having your site taken down.

Guest Posting is the best way to get good quality content at affordable prices, sometimes free of cost (just give them a do follow link).

If you're having a hard time trying to find relevant topics for your posts, you can try using Google Trends, which is a tool to see what's going on in the world, that way you can post relevant content and give your readers what they're actually looking for.

Useful, interesting and up to date information about the location and community you are targeting is the best content to have for your blog.

For real estate content you could create that would be valuable to your audience, think about what they'd probably like to learn before moving to a place, for example:

- safety / crime rates and statistics,

- how well the value of their potential home would hold up over time (stats showing home values inter target area during real estate booms and busts)

- the neighbourhood character that is: is it family friendly with good schools, parks, child friendly activities, etc? If it is, a tour of the parks and schools would be a good idea. Or, is it more of a downtown, night life, art museum type of place better suited for young adults? In that case, interviews with gallery, bar or restaurant owners might be good, as well as tours of the nearby museums, etc.

- how the neighbourhood looks and feels at different times of the day / week

- any other attractions? Such as farmers markets, water parks, etc?

These are just some examples of material you can cover in your blog.

If these include embedded videos, with you speaking to the camera, interviewing people, doing a walk-through tour on camera, they will have even more power and impact. Posting them on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram would also help you get maximum exposure.

Essentially demonstrating an in-depth knowledge of a particular location (value to the customer), backed up by one of the most important pieces of content you can get video testimonials from past clients (trustworthiness) - and demonstrated value through statistics (results) is the way to go.

Yeah I have to say. that is probably not the best way to write your blogs. Plagiarism is not something you want to be doing whether you add a paragraph to it or not.
