One of the goals of any real estate blogger is to have more visits to their blog. The more people you are able to capture the greater chance you have of turning them into clients.

One of the best ways a Realtor can achieve more people visiting their site is through content curation. In fact Scoop.it is one of the best content curation sites around!

In the article I will share some other content curation platforms that are perfect places for a real estate agent to achieve more online visibility.

Using these sites gives you a far greater chance of your content being found. If you are just publishing your blog and doing nothing else then you are missing a very important opportunity to make your efforts more effective.
