Estate Agents: Can You Afford a Content Writer?

can you afford a content writer?

As an estate or lettings agent the chances are that you’re probably not much of a writer. I appreciate that’s quite a sweeping statement and it’s not meant as an insult, it’s just that your skills probably lie elsewhere. That’s why you have chosen to be an estate agent, rather than a journalist, copywriter or any other role in the creative industry!

Nine out of 10 of you will have sat down to write a blog post, news piece or local area guide at some point during your estate agency career and found yourself still looking at a blank screen two hours later. And as you curse and get more frustrated, the harder it is to make the words flow!

3 Reasons Why Estate Agents Should Publish Blog Content

Did you know that a fruit fly only lives for between 40 and 50 days? Imagine!

And did you know that for most estate and lettings agencies who start writing a blog, the lifespan of that blog is similar?

Let’s put this into perspective. That’s just over 7 weeks at best.

A fruit fly dies at just 7 weeks old because that’s what they do – it loves rotting fruit and lays several batches of eggs in that time, it’s sole aim to continue the fruit fly cycle. But they are pesky little things that don’t really serve any other purpose, apart from to be annoying (feel free to correct me if I’m wrong!)

But your blog on the other hand – well, not only does it serve a purpose, but unlike a fruit fly, it’s lifespan can be infinite if you allow it.
