An interesting theory about blogging for business fell into my inbox this week, and I’ve been pondering it ever since. I wonder how it applies to real estate marketing – or if it does.

Have you ever gone looking to see where your blog posts are living? For the past couple of years I’ve been using an inefficient system to add subscribers to my real estate ezine.

Lately I’ve been deleting comments left on my blog – and that seems a bit mean, but there’s a reason. The comments have absolutely no bearing on the content of the blog post. For instance: This morning there was a comment on a post about developing a Military Niche for your real estate practice. The [...]
When writing to my real estate copywriting clients, I always nag about checking and double-checking the links on their websites and in their emails. But I have to admit, once in a while I get sidetracked and forget. I’m sure glad I didn’t forget today! Seeing that my Active Rain profile was in sad need [...]
