The most common question I get from agents during and after an internet marketing presentation is what blog platform should they start with. I tend to give a soft recommendation for WordPress.com (since it’s free, easy and I use that service with 4realz.net), but there really are a bunch of other great options…
So, rather than recommend any one solution, I’ve started sending people to a wiki with a list of blog platform options for real estate professionals on wetpaint.
On the wiki, I separated the various options into the various types by (1) free vs paid, (2) hosted vs self-hosted and (3) general interest vs real estate specific blog platforms. However, my knowledge is really limited to the free platforms (such as Blogger, WordPress, and ActiveRain), so if I missed your platform or you want to add more details about a platform I included, please don’t hesitate to sign up for a free WetPaint account and update the information yourself.
I recently took the “best” of the wiki and summarized the best blog platform option in the tool shed. Feel free to check out that resource and/or ping me in the comments if you have more questions.
