5 Real Estate Articles Featured at Buzzfeed
Content marketing is in fact one of the most important things you can do after publishing an article. While content is king, there is not question that promoting that content is queen. One of the things I realized long ago as a real estate agent in Northbridge MA is the need to think outside of the box when publishing a real estate article. If you do the same things everyone else does your chances of having the best visibility are going to be limited.
Unfortunately a lot of real estate bloggers do not realize this. Some agents really provide truly wonderful content but don't do anything to promote it. You can't just hit the publish button and expect to having people knocking down your door! One of the things I really enjoy doing is saying thank you to those who have helped me in some way. A great way of doing so is showcasing some of their articles is various high traffic sites.
My most recent post at Buzzfeed does exactly that. There are 5 top real estate bloggers who are featured at Buzzfeed. Each of the articles is really well written. The great thing about these articles is none of them are similar in the least. All five of them are written on radically different topics. This gives anyone reading the opportunity to pick and choose which article strikes their fancy. Take a look at one of these 5 real estate articles at Buzzfeed and see if any of them catches your eye.
