ActiveRain Tutorials: Effectively Posting Your Listings To Your Blog

Effectively Posting Your Listings To Your Blog

Effectively Posting Your Listings to Your Blog.

Posting your listings to your blog is something that any agent loves to do.  It provides exposure for the listing which makes the seller happy & also gives your blog an additional posting of content.  However over the past few months of being on staff I have encountered this question more times than I can count. "How do I post my listings on my blog?" Because of this I have written this post that will walk you through what you should & shouldn't be doing when posting your listings on your blog.

What Not to Do When Writing About Your Listing

Flyer ListingBefore I share how to effectively post your listings to your blog, I want to start with a few things not to do.  The biggest No No is to just copy & paste directly from your MLS.  Copying & pasting can cause coding issues to your blog where giant paragraphs of funny text shows up. Also, this a violation of our Community Guidelines.   The second way many post their listings is through using some sort of outside service where you input your listing information & are provided with a piece of html code that creates a pretty flyer like the one to the right.

While there are plenty of wonderful services available to place your listings on your blog, (postlets, vflyer, realbird, etc) they are not always the best way.  Before I go any further, let me make this statement:  There is nothing wrong with using those services!  They are a great for posting your listings to many social media platforms like craigslist, twitter, & facebook.  But in order to make your listings more attractive to consumers & also search engines, using those sites hold you back on your blog & here is why.

  • Lack of content: Many times those services have a limit on the number of characters you can use in the description.  They also do not allow you include links in the flyer.  Since you can't link you are missing valuable opportunities for link juice.
  • Lack of Creativity.  While they create really pretty looking flyers that can be visually appealing, they hinder you from using any type of creativity in the layout or added features to your listing because of the set template.  The ability to add extras to the flyers in out of the question.
  • Layout Issues.  Have you ever placed one of these flyers on your blog & the entire layout of your blog goes haywire?  You know what I mean, your profile picture is at the bottom of the page, your post title runs over a picture, and text is going everywhere?  Well this is caused by the html coding you inserted having the incorrect dimensions.  Most everything you post on ActiveRain needs to remain under 550 pixels wide to keep from encountering this issue.  Unfortunately these flyers are normally set for wider dimensions that the maximum allowed on ActiveRain.

Tips to Writing an Effective Listing Post.

In case you haven't figured it out by now, the best way to write bout a listing is to write an original blog post about the home.  This way you are giving unique content about the property.  You are the creator & can make it look & feel however you want.  Here are 4 simple tips to increase the appeal of your listings for both consumers & also search engines:

  1. Include Community Info.  Before you take the time to write about your listing, I would suggest taking time to write about some of the other local things in the community.  Write about local attractions, amenities in the neighborhood, restaurants, & anything else about the neighborhood.  By writing these hyper local posts before writing about your listing you will then be able to incorporate these things into your listing post.  This provides great ways to link posts together & build some major google juice.
  2. Post plenty of Photographs.   Pictures help showcase your listing.  Adding these to the post bring things to life.  Remember the importance of labeling your photos when placing them into your post.
  3. Don't be afraid of giving too much information! Many times agents fear that if they give you all the details of the listing that consumers will not contact them. Posts that include more content than the average listing posts will be the blogs that consumers come back to again & again.  Because of new technologies, consumers can find just about anything they want to know about a property online.  So if you do not give them the information they are needing, they will move onto someone else.
  4. Try adding a slideshow or video for an extra wow factor.  Slideshows & videos give just an added dimension to the post.  It allows the consumer to take a break from reading & just watch.  Be careful though to not make the video too long or you can lost their interest.  I would suggest keeping both around 2-3 minutes max.
  5. Title the post correctly.  One of the biggest problems I see when looking at a post that is for a listing is that the title is done all wrong.  It is so important to Address your listings properly for search engines.  If you just title the post "Reduced 3BR 2BA home to $389,000" you are definitely not helping the search engines to understand what your post is about. 

Add these 5 simple tips when writing your next post about a new listing & watch the difference in results.  Consumers will spend more time reading & learning as well as google will like it more.

Hey Jeremy, Great advice! Earlier today I posted one of my new listings...without even reading your post yet I think I hit almost all 5 of your points for creating a listing posting.

Have a great day!

Nice post, Jeremy!  I'm guilty of posting my postlets into my blog, but I've stopped doing it because the layout looks horrible lately.

Jeremy,

And here I thought I was doing something great by having this fancy flyer hit the active rain blog. Gosh, I learned so much in just your one little post today. I appreciate this information and will try to spend some time in between showings this weekend to update some of my listings on my blog.

Thanks Again,

Hi Jeremy. I will be working on this. So far I have alot of room for improvement.

Posted by Lana Robbins Realtor ® Licensed Real Estate Broker, Florida and Washington Real Estate (Aloha Kai Real Estate) almost 10 years ago

I've found using Postlets and then editing it a little to hold the right keywords, etc. works well to make a pretty post AND make it more findable on the web.

Posted by Stephen Kappre, Helping You Home (KW Hometown) almost 10 years ago

Jeremy,

Great tips. I am a recent Real Estate Showsuser and love how easy it is to incorporate either the video or the flyer into a post.  While I had added more to my posts, you've just given me better suggestions.  I'm all over it, Jeremy.

Any word on when the Localism listing feature will be in place?

Posted by Mel Wagner, Principal Broker/Agent Salem Oregon Real Estate (Knipe Realty) almost 10 years ago

This is terrific, Jemery.

I have taken the easy way by using vflyer but this makes more sense, even if it takes some time. I always do a WordPress blog for each of my listings so this would enable me to link back and forth more effectively.

And geo-targeting is so important in the title - I usually end up with 1-2 pages on Google filled with my blog posts on a listing - sellers are always impressed.

Jeremy. .a very timely post for me. . .I'm working on a system that will bring my listings to the top. . this will include videos, school information and much more. I will be utilizing Active Rain as a platform to do this.

I will refer to this post for your excellent suggestions.. .

Question:

When posting a listing, would Localism of regular post be better exposure?

or depends what rank localism have in that particular city? 

Does it make any difference what 5  groups you include the listing post ?

and finally, do you feel that meta tags for listings should concentrate in the  address only . . or the city/zipcode where the listing is located. . 

Thanks in advance for yoru valuable suggestions. .

You will never catch me using one of those services you mention even though they are a time saver. Anyone who knows anything about SEO would write their own original listing flyer.

Posted by Bill Gassett, Metrowest Massachusetts Real Estate (RE/MAX Executive Realty) almost 10 years ago

Jeremy, excellent tips and advice for agents trying to promote their listings on their blogs.  Hmmm... Perhaps ActiveRain could contact vFlyer, Postlets, etc. to get a formatting template that would be work within the pixel requirements on AR?  Just a thought...

Posted by Brian Block, Northern Virginia & D.C. Real Estate (RE/MAX Allegiance, Managing Broker/Branch Vice President) almost 10 years ago

I need some clarification. How is copying and pasting a listing from the MLS different from copying and pasting from Postlets or vFlyer? You say that using MLS content is "a violation of our Community Guidelines", and then that "there is nothing wrong" with Postlets, vFlyer, etc. In both cases, the agent is entering basic info (address, list price, features, etc.) and the platform (MLS, Postlets, etc.) is producing formatted content for the agent's use.

Posted by John Novak, Henderson, Las Vegas and Summerlin Real Estate (Keller Williams Realty The Marketplace) almost 10 years ago

Jeremy, your post brings a lot to think about. I normally use either vflyer, RealBird or Agencylogic powersite services to post my listings on Active Rain. Love RealBird because it allows to conglomerate video, pictures and community info.

However, I mentioned that it's much better to bring someting more deep and personal into your AR listing presentastion in order to make it more efective and visible. It's better to write a story about your listing or - better - about the neightborhood where your listing is located. You can definitely incorporate the RealBird mini site or Flockr slideshow to your story.Thank you for your post!

Excellent post, and I guess I should stop being so lazy with my listings. I do use vFlyer for all of my listings, but I can see how I cam missing out on some great SEO. You are a pro!

I was  just getting ready to copy and paste  from the MLS, but just learned that is a no no.

Great post with so much information.  Thanks

Posted by Deborah Wilson, Stark County OH Real Estate (Hackenberg Realty Group) almost 10 years ago

THANK YOU I hate when agents copy and paste from something as boring as their IDX or MLS - same goes with stats - I'm a visual person - as is many many buyers - spruce it up or I won't stay interested long enough to even see what it is.

I found your blog to be a wealth of information.  What I did notice is your widgets on your page. If you have the time I would like you to tell me how to do these.  I like the view my profile on Facebook and etc.  Thank you for all of your information.

Thanks for the great tips.  I think I will go try it now with my  new listing.

Posted by Anonymous almost 10 years ago

Jeremy, thanks for the confirmation that the time spent on writing a post is worth it. Bill Gassett has been one of my early heroes so I copied him - turns out that was a great choice! But lately, I copied another agent I respect - then realized they had just used postlets - and that post just isn't as classy or effective as the others. You just let me know my original instincts were best. Thanks!

Hello Jeremy, thanks for the pointers.  I'm like Bill G. and prefer to use our own html to post our listings.  The extra SEO juice is a benefit PLUS, we don't end up looking like all the other canned posting services.  However, it would be nice if the AR blog editor was a bit friendlier, especially for us that use the Windows Media Player for our videos (i.e., RE/MAX corporate).  Thanks!

Hey Jeremy,

Great post! I always use postlets but I sure learned a lot today. One thing I haven't learned yet is how to get my photo to up in these comments!!!  Oh well, I'll figure it out I guess.

Posted by Steve Merson 512 412 1621, CNE, e-PRO (Keller Williams Realty) almost 10 years ago

Jeremy- Sounds like my listing posts:)

My listing posts are speaking to the buyer in a story form, then adding lots and lots of interesting and compelling photos, then adding a great Real Estate Show from Jeff Turner's RES with emotional music added to it, plus a great call to action.

These listings take me a long time to prepare, edit, crop photos, take the photos and all that. I would say the average listing post takes me about 3 hours to complete.

But Oh, how worth it they are! We get so many views! Not many comments, but tons of consumers are finding these and loving them. Plus the sellers love them too! Katerina

Agreed, original content and layout is better. I've been using postlets and for the most part, their template does not distroy my blog. All the photos are clustered together at the bottom of the post though, so your recommendation of doing our own is certainly valid. Will give it a try :)
