How to Write Real Estate Blogs!

Myth: “Writing blogs for Real Estate is hard, time consuming, and doesn’t work anyway.”

Fact: Consistently writing blogs is easy, quick and profitable!

THE MOST COMMON REASONS WHY MANY REAL ESTATE AGENTS DON’T WRITE BLOGS:

  1. No Time
  2. No Content
  3. No System
These are common misconceptions about writing real estate blogs. It can be made as easy as 1-2-3! Michael Hellickson gives you the step-by-step guide to creating great blogs and engaging with more people online!

 Real Estate Blog, Where Do I Start?

1. Ideally putting out a blog 1-6 times a month is best! Getting one blog out a week is a good goal to have, but working up to that can also be just as effective. Having more than 6 is unnecessary and having less than one per month isn’t effective in the search engines!!
2. For terrific real estate blogs, you need 400-1,000 words. Less than 400 is too short to get your point across and to achieve SEO value. Over 1,000 words will bore your reader and is likely to not be read all the way through.
3. Write RELEVANT content, whether it be about our industry or about houses, it needs to be relevant. This blog is a reflection of you and your voice, remember that!
4. Include video! This may sound like a chore, but if you follow our 3 easy steps, you will knock it out in no time. Including video as often as possible is important because you are connecting with your readers on a new level. They get to see you and feel like they are actually interacting with you. Oh, and it’s awesome for SEO!
5. Have a comments section. Encourage your readers to share their thoughts and engage with you and your team members. Also getting your friends and family to comment is a good idea, because it shows your audience there are a lot of people engaged in the topic and conversation. Also a big SEO plus!
6. Make sure your Real Estate Blogswebsite and blog page is RESPONSIVE! This means that your website can be viewed on cell phones, tablets, and computer monitors and look great on each!

 

Creating Content

I know you are still wondering… “Where do I get content ideas, and what do I write about?” It’s as easy as 1-2-3!
  1. Gather Ideas
  2. Write Bullets
  3. RECORD!
1. You need to gather the ideas for the blog. You need to know topics and what good topics look like. There are tons of resources to find these!! Easy Agent Pro and Keeping Current Matters are two great places to find good topics and ideas.
Easy Agent Pro is GREAT at SEO and blogging. If you decide to work with them, they will GIVE you great content and the only thing you have to do is make it yours! (NEVER just copy and paste ANY content as it is plagiarism and it will you in the search engines!)  
You can also provide answers to Zillow questions. These are the topics that a lot of people are looking for the answers to. Another place to get great topics and feedback from fellow agents is the Club Wealth Real Estate Agent Mastermind Facebook Group.
2. Write bullet points. Now that we have the topic, wherever you may have found it, go through that topic or blog and write your own summarized bullets. Make it short and you will only need to write down 1-2 bullets per paragraph. Now this brings us to step 3!
3. RECORD! You are now going to record a video with the bullet points you just finished writing. You need to keep it super simple. All you have to do is talk about the bullet points, as if you are explaining this topic to a friend. If you have an assistant, this is your lucky day! After you record the video, you can hand it off and ask your assistant to write a blog based on your video. Now that blog topic is in your own words and you have great content!
Having your videos look professional, with good audio and video quality, is a must. You don’t need 4k, but you do need something that people can watch and listen to easily.
