people find agents to be pushy
In some cases I agree, they are right, but there are
plenty of agents like myself that prefer to let the business find me
than trying to be in your face about it. I do door knock, but I rarely
real estate when I do, I try to find out what their concerns are about
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.
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
real life and you are getting tons of leads from it, ignore me and keep
what you are doing, because lead generation is what your blog should
It doesn’t matter the topic in blogging and social media, it is more about the outcome!
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.)
