Welcome to this weeks Real Estate Coaching and Training session. My name is Daren Phillipy, CEO Phillipy Consulting. This week I want to talk about blogs and what they’re all about.  I also want to cover why they’re important in your Real Estate Business. We also talk about the different ways you can blog.   I want to start this assuming that at least you know what a blog is. Blogs have really become important over the last few years. The internet has turned the kind of being web 2.0, which means basically interactive.  Blogs allow a person or an individual or company to be able to share new content and ideas out to people online. It has completely changed, it’s made websites interactive where you can post a topic on something and people can make comments and build yourself a little community.  I speak with real estate professionals all the time.

You need to be able to have that web presence, built to market properties and the properties you are trying to sell. Blogs are a great way to be able to have something to be able to direct people to. If you do have a website but don’t have a blog option. Your web site is static, which means there’s nothing really new or changing on your site. When you have a static site, the search engines look at your site and think nothing is going on. The search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing, they look at your site, and see no new content, and see that this news of this site is old information. To have that blog feature on your site allows you to provide new information that makes you more relevant than other sites with old information. As time goes on information changes.
