Homebuilders and developers – are you seeking ways to increase traffic to your website? If not, read no further! If so, here are three reasons you should have a blog.

1. Increased traffic to your website due to the SEO (search engine optimization) created by blogging. Increased traffic will come due to higher search engine results as well as a trickle of referred, highly targeted traffic from the blogs. Your main website can then concentrate on turning visitors into homebuyers.

2. More of your main website’s pages will appear in search results because blog posts will link to secondary pages within your website.

3. Reputation Management – You can put out fires fast. Not only can you “drown out” negative vibes in the cybersphere, you can constructively address potential customers’ concerns, maybe even put a positive spin on potential liabilities by showing a “real” human face away from the corporate web site.

If you find this inspiring, contact us and let’s work together to put the Internet to work for you. We teach classes on social media for home builders as well as blogging for builders and more.

    I’ve been preaching the same thing to many of our homebuilder clients for years now. It surpsrises me how many are simply not interested in the benefits of having a company blog. And those who do have a blog, won’t regularly post on it.

    For the homebuilders who come across this post… BLOG! Blog daily! Secure publishing power with the search engines to secure your voice to the masses!

    We have added a blog to our website http://www.brandsconstruction.com/Blogb2/blog5.php and have also increased our traffic tremendously as well as providing great useful content to potential customers desiring to remodel a kitchen or bathroom. Another part of our blog section has garage planning information. A great reason to have a blog is to organize your planning information and make it readily available for your customer to view.

    Our blog has been a very positive addition to our house plan website http://www.AssociatedDesigns.com. We get as much traffic as from a pay per click campaign.
