As a real estate agent you have a lot to worry about: prospecting for listings, getting referrals, showing houses, writing contracts, etc.
The last thing you should have to worry about is your blog content.
You may find yourself wondering – does everyone write their own content?
I have an answer for you – no, they don’t.
Here Are 6 Things to Understand About Content Outsourcing
1. Content marketing is too important to be left undone.
Did you know that content marketing generally costs 62% less than traditional marketing and advertising – yet it generates almost 3 times as many leads?
No matter who writes your content, delivering strong content is vital to your marketing. And even if you have to pay someone to create the content for you – it is still going to be less than what you would spend on traditional advertising and marketing.
And strong compelling content, with a call to action, delivered on a consistent basis – has the potential to generate more leads – which will result in a higher ROI.

Just because you outsource the creation of some content, doesn’t mean all of your content will come from outsourcing. As a matter of fact, with outsourcing, you’ll be able to focus your content efforts on more in-depth content like local stories or neighborhood developments that only you can provide.
4. When marketers outsource their content marketing, 64% outsource writing, 54% outsource design, 30% outsource distribution, and 22% outsource editing. (Content Marketing Institute)
Effective marketers know it’s important to focus on what you’re good at – and let others do what they’re good at.
