A great big hello to all REW Bloggers.
This is the first official test of my REW Blogs updating system. I will be periodically sending updates to all REW Blog users with helpful tips, news on recent upgrades and releases, helpful threads on how to best use the REW blogs and much more.
So here goes, a couple of quick tips for you.
About yourself - when you are logged in to REW Blogs, you will see a link that goes to "Blog Settings" click on this and you will see that the second field you can fill in is the "About yourself" field. I have noticed a lot of members not filling in this field so I figured I would address this.
This field is like your signature - it is at the top right of every quality post you make on your blog, so by filling in this field you show your readers that you are a real and accessible person who is interested in their business. From reading your blogs, you will have already left an impression of confidence with the reader AND shown yourself as an authority in your respective markets. So lets make the most of that space and use it to drive traffic to your websites, increase your phone calls, and close more deals.
Here is my writeup for a sample:
"I am the creator of REW Blogs and a professional web developer specializing in Real Estate. I am always happy to assist Realtors with their web development needs. I can be reached at 250-753-9893 or via the contact link below this bio."
As you can see, I am quickly telling them who I am and what I do and providing both telephone and internet methods of contact.
Next Photo: Probably should have been first, but anyways, don't forget to upload a photo or avatar. Otherwise all your readers see is the default photo which is a stock trace of a someone. It does not have to be your personal picture, in fact it can be anything, your company logo, a funny cartoon whatever - but once again you have an opportunity here to leave an impression so what not make the most of it :)
