Simply put, blogging is to your website what your cell phone is to you – the lifeline of constant communication to your clients. But it’s even better in that you can pack SO much more information in– and not only about real estate and your business, but also about yourself, your hobbies, community happenings, and pretty much anything else you can think of!
Think of your website as a marketing piece that showcases your business and your credentials, and your blog as a channel for self expression and a way to build personal connections. With over 75% of people finding their agent online, it’s vital that you translate your personality and the exceptional service you demonstrate everyday into the online marketplace.
Taking 10 minutes out of your day to blog may seem like a chore at first, but as you will discover, just a little bit of effort can allow you to reap huge rewards. Your blog posts are highlighted in several places across AlohaLiving.com website, on the HawaiiInformation.com homepage, and on partner sites such as Real Estate Weekly, so keeping your blog fresh with frequent updates is good for search engine visibility (to pick up new clients) as well as keeping current ones up to date.
Don’t wait to share your real estate expertise and your wonderful self with the world. I promise- this investment will be one of the best ones you’ve ever made. And the best part is that one quick phone call to Colleen (808.748.8751 OR 800.628.3121 ext. 151) will get you a blog that we will set up AND manage for you…so all you have to do is take ten.

It’s undeniable; a strong web presence is a must for real estate professionals. Websites, blogs, listings in Google’s Business Directory…Wait; your business isn’t listed on Google Maps? If not, it’s definitely time to get on board. Getting your business listed on Google Maps is free and easy to set up (a winning combo if you ask me), and ensures that when consumers search Google maps, your business, and any details you include in your profile, show up. Include your address, photos, contact information and hours of operation, and if anything changes, editing your listing is simple and will be updated in a matter of weeks. Make sure to claim your listing (before someone else does!), and check on it periodically to make sure it hasn’t been modified.
Step 1: If you don’t already have one, create a Google account here http://www.google.com/local/add.
Step 2: Click on the “Add New Business” button on the right side of the screen.
Step 3: Enter in your business’s information, follow the directions and you’re done!
