Hey! Have a little class, will ya? Six real estate agents in our brokerage attended a recent blogging class to gain information on marketing to real estate consumers. After handing out a presentation explaining the guidelines, I encouraged each one to explore the positive aspects of blogging. There were quite a few questions about the process and many were eager to start once getting all the facts.   I mentioned to everyone that blogging not only reaches a broad audience, it helps to create and build relationships with people locally and all over the world. While it can be daunting at first, it soon becomes another business habit, one that does a business good! I can honestly say that for myself! Blog on my friends. p.s. Thank you to everyone who answered my question in the Q & A sectio...
