Do you need a call to action in your blog or does passive blogging get you leads?

beggingMany people find agents to be pushy and aggressive. In some cases I agree, they are right, but there are plenty of agents like myself that prefer to let the business find me rather than trying to be in your face about it. I do door knock, but I rarely talk real estate when I do, I try to find out what their concerns are about the neighborhood.

But, what about blogging, I was told for years that if you print a post card, a flyer, and a radio ad, you better have a call to action at the end or they will never call you! Well, if you read my posts a lot of times I don’t have that call to action and you know what? I still get calls!

Why do I think this is?

Because I try to write my posts like I’m talking to someone. Heck, in reality I really am talking to someone when I do my posts. (You can read about that here.) But, I am more passive about real estate. I talk about my family, the business and just my general knowledge of the area, and because of that I’m told by many clients that call me that they decided to use me because I was knowledgeable and wasn’t pushy about real estate at all, I was just a regular guy that they felt they could hang out with.

Ask your friends to read you blog. Ask them to tell you if they feel you are the same person online as you are offline, if they say “NO” then time to reconsider how you are writing your blog posts. Now, if your online presence is nothing like you in real life and you are getting tons of leads from it, ignore me and keep doing what you are doing, because lead generation is what your blog should really be about.

It doesn’t matter the topic in blogging and social media, it is more about the outcome!

Call to Action

Now that you have finished reading this post and loved it, please send me a referral ASAP. Send it before October 1st and I’ll send you a Cheese Cake upon closing along with your referral fee! (I just had to put a call to action at the end, just to see who would catch it.)
