Sounds familiar - let this be a lesson to all of us - especially me!

Two years ago, when I taught my first class on blogging, I had a student… in fact she was the person that brought me in to teach the class on Activerain, because she saw I was getting business from it. Like many others I’ve taught, she put up one post and never really got back to it.
A year later I was in her office and asked why she wasn’t blogging. She said, it takes too much time and I didn’t get any business from it. I said “You did one post. You didn’t send out one news letter and expect the world to drop in your lap?” I then said, “Let’s sit down, write a post together and do it in 5 minutes or less so you can see that it doesn’t take that much time, so you can’t use that as an excuse.”
5 minutes later, she was done. This short little post with no pictures was all complete and ready to post and we did. It was on short sales, nothing great, but it said what she wanted to say. She then calls me two weeks later and says since putting up that second post she has gotten 5 listings from it!!! I said, “WOW, that is amazing!” Then she blogged a total of 25 more times in the last year and I think 10 of those were postlets ads of her listings she got from that one post.
But, since that time, she has not put up a single post. Her last post, #27, was put up in 2008. She is still in the business, and she still does lots of business, but I can’t help think how much more she would do if she just put more posts up. How could you not see the benefit after getting 5 listings in less than 2 weeks? What do you say to an agent that figured it out so quickly, but never revisited her successful marketing?
