5 Simple Steps to Create a Powerful Blog in Just Minutes a Day

Create a Powerful Team Blog in Just Minutes a Day

“I don’t have the time to write a blog.” “I don’t know what to write about.” These are the two questions I hear most from real estate agents who know that blogging is a smart thing to do, but they are reluctant to take on something new, a time-consuming task, when they are at a loss for ideas about what to create. There are many answers to each of these questions. Let’s explore the quickest way to write a blog post, tapping into the most brilliant minds on the Internet, creating great content your readers will love. The search engine spiders will love it just as much!

I curate blog posts using CurationSoft, an inexpensive tool you can try before your buy.

Step One: Make a conscious choice to become a blog editor instead of a writer. Become a content curator instead of a content creator. You do not have to spend hours upon hours creating new content online. There is plenty of content online you can filter to your blog.

Step Two: Build a list of blog post titles with numbers in the title. Examples:

  • 10 Staging Tips to Get Your Home Sold Fast
  • 10 Things Your Lender Never Told You About FHA Financing
  • 10 Tips to Get the Best Deal on a Bank Foreclosure

Step Three: Let’s assume we are curating an article about staging. Go to Google, search for “home staging tips” and select five articles. Insert the title and the first couple of lines of text to your blog, with links to the original article (see examples below).

Step Four: Go to YouTube and search for “home staging” and select five videos. Select the embed code and insert them on your blog. You can eliminate Step Three and feature video blog posts exclusively in many cases. When I searched YouTube for home staging videos, the search results yielded 1,443 entries.

Step Five: Add a paragraph or two at the beginning of the blog post, preceding the curated content. Add text “Tip 1,” “Tip 2″ before each text or video selection.

Here’s what a sample the blog post about home staging looks like when I curate the content with CurationSoft (skipping Step Three). the following blog post took five minutes from start to finish. NOTE: Besides being easy to design, curated blog posts are great for search engine optimization (SEO).
