Did you realize that there are over 140,000,000 people participating in internet social networking websites. While social networks may not sound very business-like, they are valuable tools you should use to generate traffic to your site.
The key to a successful real estate blog is generating and maintaining your blog’s position as an authority on real estate in your area. A great way to do this is to connect with other real estate professionals and potential clients through various social networks on the web.
When it comes to promoting your blog on social networking websites, you have a number of different options. Your first option is to include a link to your blog in your community profile or profile page. This will allow other community members to checkout your blog, only if they wish to do so. The other way is to inform your online friends of your blog through private messages. Once you join a social networking website and create or join a network of friends, you should easily be able to communicate with those friends. Sending each of your friends a private message with information and a link to your blog tends to be more effective than just placing a link in your profile or on your profile page.
One of the more effective ways of promoting your blog is to use a site everyone either loves or hates – Facebook. The social networking site allows you to create a page to promote your blog or business – and it’s completely free.
