Princeton Junction, NJ, February 16, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- www.bloggingsystems.com – Blogging Systems Group, the leading provider of blogs to the real estate industry, recently sponsored a survey to identify how agents and brokers plan to allocate marketing dollars in 2007.
According to the survey, produced by the Global Research Center, 68% of real estate agents said they would be focusing on blogs as a marketing tool in 2007.
“Real estate blogs are an excellent way for real estate professionals to establish or expand their internet presence,” said Richard Nacht, CEO of Blogging Systems. “The Internet is now the number one place for information for home buyers and sellers. If REALTORS® aren’t found online, there’s a good chance they won’t be found at all.”
A recent report from California Association of REALTORS® echoes the need for REALTORS® to invest time and marketing dollars into online efforts.
According to the Report:
92% of Internet buyers found their agent on a Web site
63% found them through an Internet search engine
0% of Internet buyers found their agent through brochures, flyers, yard signs or mailers to their home
“It is crucial for real estate professionals to understand how buyers and sellers are approaching real estate,” said Nacht. “The data clearly shows that the Internet is the primary vehicle for accessing decision-making information in this industry. A blog can help REALTORS® communicate their value to their local communities while increasing touch points with prospective clients.”
Blogging Systems’ blog platform, which can be used to create Community blogs, Real Estate Marketplace blogs, Intranet and company Marketing blogs, is for REALTORS® who want to create an online destination site for news and information pertaining to their local communities and their real estate target market.
By creating a blogsite for local community members or real estate services companies, REALTORS® are able to:
increase brand awareness
generate real estate leads
gain a competitive advantage
