The Close is a different kind of real estate publication. Fueled by the expertise of active real estate professionals who guide readers using first-hand experience, we partner with freelancers to bring new perspectives to our established voice. Learn about the benefits of working with us here, or join the waitlist for The Close’s Contributor Club now by telling us why you’d be a good fit:
Reach hundreds of thousands of active, engaged real estate pros
Our site regularly brings in 225,000 unique monthly visitors; we reach 125,000 email subscribers several times a week and count more than 60,000 social media followers across seven channels. We’ll strategize our article promotion with you so you can execute your own content marketing plan in concert with The Close.
Fill your portfolio
With each new article you publish, we’ll send you a printable PDF of your article and our data team will provide you with pageviews and click-through rates to help you understand your reach. We’ll feature your author profile—recently revamped to take advantage of the latest SEO guidelines—on our About Us page, helping you gain visibility in search engines and boost your web presence as a thought leader.
Get best-in-class, personalized writing & publishing guidance
We leverage our decades of experience in real estate publishing and SEO to help you find your voice, hone your craft, and reach new audiences. We’ll customize our feedback process to accommodate your busy schedule while also supporting your communication goals as an author.
How We’re Different
Many real estate publications believe they shouldn’t have to pay agents and brokers because getting published boosts your web presence and notoriety in the industry. But just because you benefit from working with us doesn’t mean your writing doesn’t have value. Now, our rates aren’t going to rival the commission on that million-dollar listing you just closed. This is probably part of why you got your real estate license and not a Ph.D. in English lit. But we believe you should be paid for your time and expertise.
We’re in it for the long haul
We build lasting relationships with our expert contributors. We create detailed assignment briefs and dedicated content runways tailored to our writer’s strengths and passions. We also love it when contributors pitch us ideas! But we often come back with data on what agents are searching for right now or a scoop on a brand-new feature that everyone’s favorite proptech firm is about to roll out. We know that if we work together, the output can be twice as successful.
Our Track Record Speaks Volumes
The Close’s writers have gone on to publish books, score national speaking engagements, be wooed by real estate tech companies, and see their coaching businesses flourish.
Of course, some of that success is because we tend to only work with awesome agents and brokers. But we know that getting in front of the engaged, loyal audience at The Close had a little something to do with it, too.
So, are you ready to join the club?
