It is now just over a year (and maybe a few months!) since we launched the Voices blogging platform and we recently reached a significant milestone – our 100th agent blog! It’s great to see so many agents embracing the opportunity to increase their exposure and online presence in this way.
Of course blogging is not for everybody, and about 40 of those blogs are no longer active. Of the remaining 60 blogs, about 30 are updated infrequently – maybe once or twice a month -and the other 30 blogs are updated on a regular basis, ranging from anywhere between once a week to three times a day!
While blogging is hugely popular with agents in the US, it is still a relatively new phenomenon in New Zealand and I often meet people within the industry who are not quite sure what a blog actually is. So, don’t be afraid to ask questions or to give it a go yourself. If it doesn’t work out, it’s not the end of the world. And on the other hand, you might find that it’s your new addiction. It’s a lot less fattening than chocolate, won’t break the bank like gambling and is likely to result in more business for you…so as addictions go, you could do worse!
There’s no doubt that the number of agents blogging will continue to grow. The question is, do you wait until all your competitors are at it, and you feel you have to, or do you start now and leave everyone else trailing behind as you become the expert in your chosen field or area?
Over to you…
