Top Socially Shared Real Estate Blogs – June 2015


One of the best ways to drive traffic to your site is by answering questions that people are asking. One way to do that is through blog posts.  Posting content on your site is a great value add to site visitors and can attract new visitors from the search engines. But we often see that when in a competitive space, like real estate, your content gets lost in a sea of blogs.

So how do you overcome that? One simple approach is by utilizing social media.

Social media has become a great tool for bloggers and site owners to help get their content in front of their audiences. Also, when producing content that is very “share-worthy”, you are essentially creating an army of marketers.

Below is a list of people who are using social media successfully.  If you are struggling with your blog, take a look at what they are doing and follow their lead.

In the comments below, tell us what you do to drive traffic to your blog. How long did it take you to gain a solid following? Do you use paid tactics? We would love to hear your ideas!
