Architecture/Engineering/Construction + Real Estate: THE PROPERTY INDUSTRY
The hardware store, the Coldwell Banker office, and my grandpa’s hotel.
Those three places are the settings to most of my childhood memories.
My dad was a handyman who dabbled in real estate. My grandpa was a real estate developer with multiple hotels that my mom managed.
As the child of two working parents, I would undoubtedly be at one of those three places a few times a week.
As an adult, I must have had a bit of grandpa in me because I have bought, renovated, and sold real estate as a hobby.
This influenced my career as well.
When I was called to content and digital marketing, the architecture/engineering/construction and real estate industries came naturally to me, what I like to call, the property industry.
When I am in that environment, I feel at home.
The girl behind the monitor: I am a slightly crunchy wife and mom of two boys who loves camping, yoga, and leaving only tiny footprints on this earth.
When I can combine my love for wellness and environmental health with the property industry through content marketing, I am truly in my element.
"I highly recommend Sarah Block as a real estate, finance, or business writer. I've worked with Sarah for a year now as her editor at Landlordology. I always look forward to reading her blog posts that I either assign to her or that she suggests. Sarah is a wonderful writer who hits all the points in a relatable way.
Sarah communicates well and is dependable. I know when I assign a story to Sarah, I will get it back on time with minimal edits required. Her knowledge and expertise of the subject matter is impressive.
Sarah is a great asset to the Landlordology team, and I know she would be an asset to many other blogs as well."

I make complicated subjects simple.
Art Meets Science: Content Marketing
Content marketing brings together the two sides of the brain with art meeting science. Data, SEO, brand messaging, and storytelling come together into perfect harmony, creating value-added content assets for customers and prospects. Customers need their problems solved. You have a solution to their problems. Content marketing is the bridge between the two.
To create effective content marketing collateral, you need to
- provide education and value
- tell a compelling story
- weave in brand messaging
- keep search engine optimization (SEO) at the forefront
- understand your niche audience
- know how to get your content seen by the right people
Sarah Noel Block | Content Marketing Strategy + Writing
When I was five, I wanted to be a toll booth worker.
I wanted to hear the stories of travelers.
When I was ten, I wanted to be an author and write my own stories.
Now, I get to do both. No, I never did become a toll booth worker. Nor did I become an author (at least, not yet!). But, as a content marketer and copywriter I get to hear stories from thought leaders and learn from subject matter experts. I get to turn their knowledge into stories.
I'm pretty good at it, too. Here are a few of my content marketing accomplishments:
- Increased web traffic 3,581% since 2012.
- Email open rate of 82% in 2017.
- 92% email conversion rate.
- Increased organic traffic by 149% since 2012 through a strategic content marketing strategy + SEO.
- Drove 40% of traffic to website through content marketing and blogging.
- Between 2013 and 2017, increased blog traffic by 255%.
- Increased social media following 1,703% since 2012.
