Five Reasons Why I Blog on Active Rain


Via Sun City Grand Real Estate Surprise AZ Leolinda Bowers, MBA, Associate Broker (Ken Meade Realty):

People frequently comment that they read my blog to learn what’s happening in my market area.  Agents often ask why I blog. Simple.  Buyers and sellers normally begin their agent or property search on the Internet.  Many buyers and sellers have grown up with computers or have become computer literate and have determined how to find information on the web.

The maintenance of a traditional website can be overwhelming.  It requires constant updates with current facts and information.  Unfortunately it takes time and effort to consistently update a website.  It’s extremely difficult to update a website due to the sheer number of tabs and pages as well as all of the hours to modify the content as well financial expenditure.

My Active Rain blog is a single page.  It is embedded with key words.  Unlike a website, my Active Rain blog does not take me hours to update.  I can post text, audio and video and have it on the Internet is a short time. 

My Active Rain blog is the best cost effective advertising approach.  LogoGoogle spiders and other search engines seem to recognize my blog post much quicker than a traditional website.  Besides that, I can attach my blog to my website.

I’ve made numerous business friends and personal acquaintances in Active Rain.  I read blogs in determining which agent has the same work ethic as me. I give out referrals and receive referrals.  Here I am with friends, without backstabbing, or “shenanigans”.

Has my Active Rain blog brought me any business? Yes, I successfully closed 51 transactions in 2009.  Does that say anything?

About susanmorrison

After living in Walpole, MA for many years, our family was transferred to the west coast when I was a senior in high school. In 1983, I graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I am also a 1987 graduate of Providence College with a major in liberal arts and a minor in business administration. I bring to the table many years of sales experience beginning with thirteen years in Corporate Sales at Delta Air Lines. I'm the mother of three children and I'm very active within the Franklin, MA community. I am also a cancer survivor and support the American Cancer Society Charities.

My husband and I have built five homes and I've lived in a variety of other locations including Toronto Canada, Irving Texas and my current home in Franklin, MA. As a result of all my moving around, I came to the conclusion that I was an expert at moving...why not become an expert on the other side of the table? I earned my real estate license in 2004 and believe that I have found my true niche'. I can empathize with my clients on a variety of levels; whether they are buying or selling. And, like so many other good realtors out there, I believe that possessing good communication skills is one of the many keys to success.
