Real Estate Blogging & Social Media Training and Coaching [aka: myKWblog.com]

Two of the biggest objections to blogging that I hear, as a blog coach are:

  1. I don’t have the time.
  2. I don’t know what to write about.

Well, Keller Williams offers a tool for its agents that will help with BOTH of those. Every week you, the Keller Williams agent, receives an email called This Week @ KW:

This email offers all kinds of great news and information from Keller Williams – news stories, up and coming events, and links to all the educational events that Keller Williams offers (like the Free Blogging Webinar that we just had…).

What they have ALSO started offering is an article (almost one a week) that you can copy and paste into your own website or blog. Just look for the “Copy Me/Paste Me” sticker next to the article.

Not only will this help you add new content to your blog (or website), but it will save you a little time as well! Additionally, it will give your blog a wider range of real estate topics that people will find interesting.

Tips:

  • Always include the information on the author of the article.
  • Add a “call to action” at the end of the post, like “For more information, please contact [your name and contact information]”
  • Use this as a SUPPLEMENT to your blog, not as a reason not to write. Your blog should be 99% YOU and other people who write for your blog.

Thank you, Keller Williams for (once again) making MY life easier!

UPDATE:

Do NOT post these articles on Active Rain. These KW articles are ONLY meant for use on your own blogs. Only post things that YOU write on Active Rain. If, for some reason you should you decide that you MUST share one of these articles on Active Rain, you MUST check the box before publishing that says the content IS NOT their own original content, but they have permission to repost it. Not doing this could cause you to be ejected from Active Rain all together. And we don’t want that…

  1. hummmm……….so we can cut and paste? What will that do to duplicate content? I’ll have to check it out. Be back later.

  2. You may not get credit for this post on your blog from Google, but it still helps build content.

  3. Ugh!…More ‘clip & paste’ duplicate content on AR…..Lovely! If you could please add something about checking the box before publishing that says the content IS NOT their own original content, but they have permission to repost it. That was they don’t get points for content that isn’t their own. Thanks!

  4. I’m not sure what value there is in building content without getting credit from Google. Why bother blogging? Aren’t we simply creating an excuse for people to be lazy? But thank you for your third point: Use this as a SUPPLEMENT to your blog, not as a reason NOT to write.

  5. Hey Sparky,
    Thank you for your comments and you bring up some very valid questions.

    1. This is a post aimed at the people who take my classes @ KW. These are ideas for their personal blogs, not for Active Rain and I make that clear in my classes. However, I will add your comment to the body of this blog post for the KW folks who may have forgotten.

    2. Regarding writing content w/o getting credit from Google… My blog is for people first, then for search engines. If I can share valuable content with my readers from time to time that that was not written by me, but that will benefit my readers, then why not? I am a BIG promoter that if you do not like to write and are not willing to invest your own time in writing, then maybe blogging isn’t for you. However, since we are all agents FIRST, there will be times where we just fall short of our ideal blogging schedule. Those are the times where these articles may come in handy. Like I said, as a supplement.

    Again, thank you for your comments and I hope this cleared things up a bit.
