How is your blog doing?  How much traffic does your blog generate?

The key is, how are you promoting you blog?  Take a step back and think of all the ways your are promoting your blog — or the no-cost or low-cost ways you can promote your blog to generate more home buying and home selling readers.

Here’s a checklist to check how your blog promotion measures up:

  • Regular emails focusing solely on your blog — targeted to your email lists’ needs and situation
  • Mention your blog in phone conversations, emails and in-person meetings
  • Include a pop-up on your main website announcing blog and inviting people to sign up for RSS feed/email list to auto receive new posts right when they’re posted.
  • Include blog address on any reprinting of business cards and any marketing/paperwork
  • Mention your blog in your printed and email newsletters
  • Update contact info on your website to include blog address prominently
  • If you have a resources site on your main website, be sure to list your blog address
  • If you have an about section on your main website, mention that you blog regularly
  • Consider adding a flyer or blurb about your blog in any direct mail piece that goes out if it doesn’t affect weight and/or message of original piece
  • When someone posts to the blog, be sure to contact clients who might benefit the most — buyers about a buyer blog topic; sellers about a seller blog post
  • Consider finding someone to guest blog on your site — a mortgage loan professional, local handyman, house stager, etc.
  • Consider blog address and Twitter contact info important enough to include in all your contact info
  • Comment on others’ related blog posts
  • Respond promptly to all comments
  • Research signing on to blog directories
  • Think about where home buying and selling consumers visit and read (& comment) on those blogs
