FHA Condo Approval Specialist: I am a Guest Blogger!

I am a Guest Blogger!

I am a Guest Blogger!

ActiveRain blogging is an important element to our marketing.  I have been writing articles for ActiveRain for several years.  Despite only having posted sporadically until June 2013, all of the business that has come to me outside of Connecticut has done so because of my AR articles.

Whenever I write a post, I broadcast it to my other social media sites including Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.  Aside from activity in the LinkedIn Groups and the occasional Retweet, I rarely get any noticeable activity from other sites.

Last month, on Twitter we began following a property manager in Pittsburg called Acri Realty; they followed us back and sent us a direct message “Your blog is a great resource.  Thanks for following us”. 

Jeff, our guy who in charge of the Twitter stuff, checked out Acri’s site and offered for me to write blog articles for their site.  They responded positively and I called the person in charge of their site.

After a fantastic hour-long conversation with Michele, it was clear that she was so busy with Acri’s site and the sites that they manage for their condominium association clients that providing to her several articles per month about condominiums and FHA project approvals is exactly what she had been looking for.

She posted one earlier this week and sent the link to me.  Not only are we promoting it through our social media outlets, so is she!  I am thrilled to be able to help her and to have the articles reach more people.


By the way, I welcome anyone to connect with me on any of the social media sites.  Please click any of the social media icons or logos below to find me.

Nice job connecting with her, hopefully it is a connection that goes on for many years. You know my attitude about social media, you have inspired me.

Most of the time I have had issues with out of area lenders. Maybe the rules are different in your world. Looks like a great opportunity for you. Go for it.

Sometimes activity isn't "noticable", but it is certainly still getting read.  I've learned to use the "shortcut" link when I post to facebook to keep up with my number of readers there.

Our blogs are being read by many that don't ever surface. I recently met up with two people that new my name from reading my things online. I've never had contact with either of them previously.

I think guest blogging is a sure way to enter a new market.  I am working on that right now with a particular group in the area that publishes a quarterly newsletter and asked me to submit something.  It certainly can't hurt.

I've done some guest blogging over the years, and even some paid blogging back in 2010. Kudos!

Guest blogging is a great way to increase exposure and get a nice link back to your main site to help with SEO. Probably one of the most overlooked marketing tools out there.

Posted by Aaron Hofmann, aka Mr. Smyrna Vinings (Atlanta Communities) about 5 years ago

Nice idea Eric. Never gave much thought to guest blogging.

Posted by Anthony McCullough, Your Chicagoland Real Estate Connection (Keller Williams Inspire) about 5 years ago

I need a guest blogger I think that would be cool for sure.

Eric, That is how the word spreads like wildfire. Give others permission to share and on and on it goes.
