8 Ideas For When You Need a Real Estate Blog Post In A Pinch
Sometimes we all need a quick solution. Real estate blogging is no different. If you blog for long enough, you will occasionally find yourself under pressure to produce but with nothing to write. This usually happens when we are occupied with important non-blogging business. Real estate agents, after all, are some of the busiest people I know. In these situations, it is useful to have a list of real estate blog posts that you can turn to again and again to get out of a jam.
These posts are quick to write and require minimal research. Here are 8 ideas for when you need a real estate blog post in a pinch.
1. Mail Bag
Take a hint from the pros. If you are under the gun, assemble a few questions you get from readers and clients, answer them, and call it a post.
This is one of the most common “tricks of the trade” in professional writing. And the beauty is it may still be some of your most popular content.
2. On the Hot Seat
You certainly have friends in the industry. You can do a quick and dirty interview with them by writing 10 questions and firing it off in an email. Ask them to answer in 5 minutes or less. It will not take much of their time and it gives you quick content for your real estate blog.
3. Tools of the Trade
We all have equipment we rely on—a trusty computer bag, a raincoat, the camera that cannot be beat. Write a review about one of the products that keep you going. If you have time before, set up an affiliate link so you can get compensation for anyone who buys after reading your real estate blog post.
4. What Do Readers Think?
Is there a hot trend in the real estate industry right now? Take the temperature of your readers with a survey. The poll can be a post by itself and your response to it in another.
5. Things I Wish I Knew
Everyone has those moments where they say, “Man, I wish I knew that before.” These can be useful and entertaining anecdotes. Think about some big learning moments in your career and write about them.
6. The Spouse’s Perspective
Think your spouse has some thoughts on your work and what it means for your relationship? Yea, probably. Get him to talk about what it is like to be married to a real estate agent and repurpose his responses into some quick posts.
7. This Week in History
Look through your social media timelines and find out what you were doing at this time last year or two years ago. Then, write about it. Quick. Done.
8. Recycled Content for Your Real Estate Blog
Worst-case scenario, you can repost some old content. This should be a fairly popular post that is at least two years old, but yet still relevant today. It may seem cheap, but it is a pretty common practice in blogging. Do not forget to put a disclaimer announcing the recycled material.
