Using content marketing for a real estate service means getting your product in front of real estate agents and brokers. Where are real estate professionals turning to learn about the industry’s latest developments? Besides industry-leading publications from the National Association of Realtors or Inman, there are real estate web publications that accept unsolicited submissions. Get your blogs in front of a wider audience with redistribution or syndication on the right channels. Sharing your thoughts on websites besides your owned channel boosts potential web traffic and builds the links necessary for strong search engine ranking placement.
