Charles, I first started blogging in 2005 when I heard about it on the internet and researched it. I began on blogger.com. It wasn't long after(2007) that I heard about a social media/blogging site called activerain. I though I was late to the party but actually I was not. By the time I arrived here I already had three blogger blogs which target different audiences. Soon after learning about seo here my outside blogs raced to the top of google. Here are 2 of my blogger sites. Lakewoodhttp://www.dyersburglakewood.com and my foreclosure blog http://www.dyersburgforeclosures.info

I also have another blog I started in 2005 that is my dyersburg real estate market reports blog.

Depends how many clients you want versus the type of clients you want :). Some of my clients actually have over two dozen independent and active blogs (on unique .com's) running at any given time. With blogs (using the term blog as a broad term) you actually have the unique ability to target very different demographics - in essence controlling your flow of leads.

I think, when you start blogging, posting on one platform is more than enough. But when you feel stronger, you should add your own blog that belongs only to you.  Think about it like your site and your company site where your options are very limited.

Charles Ross what will prove best for you will be dependent on your enthusiasm and the time available that you can commit. Actually, time is not that big an issue because much can be outsourced.

I maintain three blogging identities. One related to real estate (here I am). Another related to endurance running(where I actively participate). The third about overcoming the ambushes life throws our way (and I am the author).

The first, real estate, is intended to address the 90 day real estate market.

The second is aligned to refer a friend incentives.

The third, has no overt real estate purpose, but is my give back, the least I can do,  understanding the great price paid by others to restore me to wholeness for which I am inexpressibly grateful. 

As I am sure you are already aware, writing a blog on AR allows you to easily syndicate to all those entities following the 'share' on which you have an account 

Now observe, those three blogging activities in which I am engaged are incredibly strategic. Let me explain.

What is the category of product, on Amazon, that is sold in volumes that are orders of magnitude greater than any other?

What is #2?

And #3.

And #4

Number 1 is self-help or relationship type books
Number 2 is getting healthier, lose weight, get stronger.
Number 3 is how to make more money
Number 4 is housing.

I have elected not to write three real estate blogs on different platforms but  instead to participate in the bigger river of need. And as we all know, those who are #1 and #2 sleep under a roof also.

You will discover, the 'conversion' you seek, will be directly related to your ability to be genuine, to show up completely, and in doing so, turn lurkers into engagements.

My recommendation, keep your AR blog, have a good Facebook page to share, and BUY FACEBOOK ads. That is really ALL you need in regard to your real estate marketing and getting folks to raise their hand.

Yes indeed. Spread the word and the chances. You never know where someone may be looking. Linking is an excellent way to get extra exposure and of course ask others to share your posts.

I am thinking about adding my blog to another platform. There are some offered by google that may offer better traction...
