REALTOR®, Broker Associate
Blogging may seem like a daunting task, but the refrain you hear from everyone these days is the same: "You have to blog to be successful in real estate." But you got into real estate to help people find homes, not to write the next novel! Nationally-known trainer and top selling agent Mariana Wagner will show you why you need to do some form of blogging to build your real estate business - even if writing is not your favorite pastime or think you have no time in your busy schedule!
Mariana will show you how to:
- Translate your natural ability to work and communicate with others into blog entries
- Blog even if you don't consider yourself a writer
- Use blogging techniques for any schedule including Visual Blogs, Sound Blogs, Video Blogs and Word Blogs
- Build efficiencies and save time by answering common questions once in your blog
- Connect with and become an expert in Niche Markets
- Create Clients not leads while increasing your visibility on search engines
