We recently came across a great infographic by Keeping Current Matters that outlined where in the US the most all cash real estate sales are taking place. This is great information to know; not only to see how your state sizes up, but to learn how common all cash sales are where out-of-town buyers are coming from.

BizSugar is a website that promotes content by and for small business owners, managers and entrepreneurs. It’s a great site to submit articles and gain online visibility! Here is what the site lists as its two main functions and advantages:
• You share your business blog posts, videos and other content, so that others can learn from you. Benefits: you reinforce a reputation as a thought leader and bring online visibility to your content.
• You discover what others have shared. Benefits: you make networking connections with other business people and stay informed.
BizSugar not only allows you to share your content and discover like-minded individuals’ content, it ranks pieces based on a user voting system. The most “sugared” content goes to the front page. Topics include marketing, finance, social media, customer service, technology, self-development and more.
Not only is BizSugar a great place to find tips and tricks for your small business (real estate) site and marketing efforts, it’s a great place to submit your blog posts and drive more traffic to your site!
Simply sign up, find some friends (like HouseHunt!) and start submitting articles. How many votes your posts receive will determine how many articles you can submit a day. Therefore, the more quality content you produce, the more votes you will get, and the more you can share daily!
Make sure to link to your real estate website, blog site, YouTube channel, StumbleUpon page, LinkedIn profile, and Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ accounts from your profile.
This account will be relatively easy to maintain, taking five to ten minutes a day depending on how many articles you submit and if you write lengthy descriptions.
Are there any article submission sites you’re a part of? Please let us know what they are in the comments section.
