It’s been a great year! As we move forward, it is important to look back on what resonated most with our readers, just as it is critical for you to reflect on what resonated with your clients.
So, when my team suggested we share our top 5 blog posts in 2016, I was all in.
I’m proud to present: Our 5 Most Read Blogs of 2016 to Move your CRE Business Forward.
My team tells me they can quickly determine the most read and most shared blogs from the over 150 we shared. These were authored by a few of our 20 outstanding CRE coaches, some guest bloggers and I wrote over the year. What I find interesting is, of course, the subject lines that get the most attention. I suggest you also find out which of your emails seems to hit a cord with your prospects.
