Blogging For Business: How To Attract And Keep An Audience

Chances are, you’ve heard all about the benefits of keeping a business blog. You likely wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t looking to start a blog or build upon an already existing blog. So let’s get right to it. Here are a few tips, thoughts, and ideas that should help you attract readers, and potential business, to your blog …

Think of Your Blog as Your Own TV Station: Like radio and television before it, the Internet is a means of communication. But unlike TV and radio, the Internet allows for equal and inexpensive access. Which means, setting up a blog allows you to broadcast your services, knowledge, and expertise to a larger audience than you ever could through traditional advertising, and at little to no cost. Keep it interesting, though. A radio station that only ran commercials wouldn’t attract much of an audience. Write for your target audience and offer quality content on a consistent basis.

Keep It Short: Coming up with content on a regular basis can be a struggle. Luckily, online readers tend to have shorter attention spans. After all, as quickly as they clicked on your site, they can click on another. That means, you don’t have to write 10,000 words per post. Posting short, easily digested information will encourage your viewers to spend more time reading your blog.

Syndicate Your Content: Once you’ve started producing content, spread it around. One of the many benefits of using social media for business is how easy it is to multiply your views by posting your content on multiple sites. Twitter and Facebook, for example, make it very easy to automate the process and quickly expand your influence online.

Twitter For Realtors: Who To Follow And How

Now that you’ve set up a Twitter page, you’re likely wondering how long it’ll be before a flood of followers are hanging on your every tweet. You’ve heard that businesses were using Twitter to attract clients and customers but your page hasn’t generated a single comment, let alone a legitimate lead. So what’s next?

The first thing you should do is stop thinking of your Twitter page as an advertisement. You can’t tweet into a vacuum and think somehow your information will land in front of the right people. Your Twitter page is a means of communication, which means it’s a two-way street. In other words, the quickest way to generate activity is to target and follow the people, businesses, and areas you hope to communicate with.

Do a quick search for real-estate related terms, local businesses, and anyone in your area that might be interested in buying or selling real estate. Because Twitter doesn’t require the people you follow to approve you first, there’s no need to hesitate. Follow any and all of the results.
