I recently discovered an online community web site which of course a Realtor sponsors. But what I think is really unique is that you can create it to become the number one resource for the neighborhood. I am just in the very beginning of getting mine up and running but once you can get consumers, businesses, organizations, etc. to advertise for FREE and they begin to spread the word you will become the #1 Realtor in that area. The company also gives you ideas of how to promote the site and marketing downloads. You pay a one time set up fee and a monthly fee and they do the initial leg work. So far I have had over 2,000 hits since mid October. I can only imagine what it will be like in 6 months once more and more people visit. Did I mention that I am the onlly Realtor on the site and I have an idx for searches. Check it out if you would like www.MyCalvertCounty.com
. Any ideas on promoting it would be appreciated. Remember it will take time to get it full of really good info and vendors.
