Real Estate Conversations with Brenda: Online Marketing and Blogging is the Shizzo....I Mean it Works!

Online Marketing and Blogging is the Shizzo....I Mean it Works!

Online Marketing and Blogging is The Shizzo....I Mean it Works!



In her post she discusses online marketing and just how important it is....and she is absolutely correct!  Being found on Google is incredibly important for our Open Houses.  The Internet is where Buyers look for houses and open houses.  

Check out this screen shot I just pulled today of the three open house blogs I did for my listing at 348 Willow View Cibolo Texas!

Google Screen Shot

If you notice, my Active Rain Blog is the First Three Results on Google! That is huge.  If you look further down the page you will notice I have three more entries, my facebook and my outside blog and my www.shertztxhomes.com wordpress blog that I just started three days ago! This means that I have 6 spots out of the 10 spots on the First Page of Google!  That is big for me and should produce terrific results at the open house.  It also shows my sellers how hard I market their property on the internet and the results that I get.  Not only my current Guadalupe County Texas home sellers, but my future ones too!

I want to thank both Barbara and second Barbara's kudos to Katerina Gasset with SEO to the Top classes.  If you haven't checked it out yet, and you aren't getting to number one on Google...perhaps you should!

Real videos show up in blended searches, with an increased likelihood of 50 times. Those are the open houses year round, never too early or late and on the buyer's time schedule. Save gas. Yours, the real estate buyer. Shoot, edit, render, upload real full motion video with natural sound captured at the property. Then watch the player show up in a front page index search if SEO roller pinned in to shape.

Hi Andrew-No doubt.  Video works too!  That's why I also market with YouTube, Virtual Tours and Real Estate Shows.  Online marketing goes everywhere all the time and it's cool how fast you can get on Google when you know how to do it!  

Thanks for commenting!

Brenda...thank you for the mention and congratulations on your great blogging.....and Andy is right about videos....I have to start that sooner rather than later....

Posted by Barbara Todaro, Marketing Agent for The Todaro Team (RE/MAX Executive Realty ) about 9 years ago

You proved the point...In the end, it is the interaction of the parties that will or wont seal the deal. But getting their attention and interest until then is what we are all blogging about...good stuff Brenda...thanks..Also, hello to Andrew

Posted by Richie Alan Naggar, agent & author (people first...then business Ran Right Realty ) about 9 years ago

Hi Barbara-Your welcome for the mention :)!  You deserve it and you wrote a terrific post how important online marketing is to our sellers.  I just wanted to prove your point with my Google Screen Shot.  I almost forgot about the word press blog I started the other day.  It is amazing that it is already on page one of Google and it really doesn't have anything on it.  It's not really ready for public view but there it is on page one.  Guess i better get it all prettied up for company :)!

Posted by Brenda Mullen, Your San Antonio TX Real Estate Agent!! (RE/MAX Access) about 9 years ago

Hi Richie-Interaction with real live people will be the final key in getting the deal done most definitely, but...you gotta get found first for that interaction :)!  Thank you for the compliment and for stopping by and commenting!

Hi Debbie-Well lots of luck on your last minute open house.  I certainly hope you get a ton of visitors!  Sounds like a gorgeous home in Carlsbad CA 92011!  Love the view with that picture.

Hi Brenda,

Question for you on the blogs.  When you blog for an open house, for example to the hyper local area, do you insert a photo or does that screw it up?  I don't have any video, maybe I should get some today on my camera?

So if you have video, you just post a link?  I am a newbie with all the video stuff and haven't done it yet but NEED TO!

Any other suggestions?

Posted by Debbie Lynn, Realtor, North San Diego 858.775.9771 (Prudential California Realty) about 9 years ago

Hi Debbie-Wow.  Lots of questions :)!  Great!  Photos are very important to your blogs.  It shouldn't mess anything up unless you are using photos that are copyrighted to someone else.  Go check out my open house blogs to see my photos and my video.  Real Estate Shows from Jeff Turner is a great way to produce some video for your listings.  Search for blogs that show you how to post a video in your blog, it truly isn't hard.

You can easily shoot a quick video with your camera and then convert it to a You Tube video to post on your blog as well.  

Lots of stuff to learn and do with your blogs but you will get it :)!

I also appreciate Andrew's comment.  Guess I need to get adept at my Kodak Zi8.

 

Thankx

Hi Brenda...Blogging in the Rain Works Really Well for Open Houses. I know I ask people when they come through my Open House. I use "Victoria Saturday Open House 2-4 PM ...xyz Address" Love The Rain. I do well in ranking too, just need to find the Nerve key words for some properties..Like Top Floor Condo Victoria BC...is getting too many now.

Cheers, Keep Blogging in the Rain
