I have yet to be bored with a post from these guys... I think they are awesome and I always learn something of value... This post is a wonderful reminder that I need to do more community posts and more local events posts... Hope you all enjoy!
Yes, I KNOW We're Boring You......
zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Hey, you, wake up!! I know we're not giving you much lately to comment on. First week of the month means market reports, so four of those completed and honestly we could probably use to add some more of those to our monthly agenda! You know how handy it is when one of your sellers (or buyers) is asking about a particular market and you can send them the link to your latest market report? Sweeeeeet!!! Don't need to recreate the wheel, just add additional comments that fit their particular situation. And all the data we provide probably has you bouncing your head off the keyboard. Kind of hard to make Median Price, Days on Market and the like exciting unless you've got a personal stake in it!
And community posts, we're finally starting to kick those up to the level we should have been doing long ago. For the most part we don't expect you to have much interest in those either. But we know buyers and sellers DO care about that kind of information. We've looked around the 'Net a bit and we're not seeing much evidence that our competition is covering communities. There's a void in available hyperlocal information and why shouldn't we be the ones that provide the information area home buyers and sellers want? Why shouldn't we try to reap the benefits? And side benefit, we get into our neighborhoods even further...even if we did get a flat tire on the 4th of July from a piece of new construction metal in the street.
And local event posts, those are a standard part of our agenda too. Frankly there's more going on than we can cover, so we pick and choose. But the cool thing is that even OLD event posts still get results. The Dayton Air Show is this weekend and we haven't done a new post this year, but we got an email Sunday from someone who found LAST YEAR'S post and had a question regarding the event. And that's just one example of local posts getting us a contact. We're getting out more, attending farmers' markets, visiting local cafes, broadcasting what we see and learn to help them. And when you let those businesses know what you're doing, they appreciate the help. You know them, they know you. Maybe it leads to something, maybe it doesn't. But at least another avenue is created to get you top of mind.
Even if all we did was stick to these three categories and mix in posts about our listing inventory, we'd never run out of topics to cover. Honestly, every one of those topic posts is written with ZERO expectation of getting comments. They're all consumer-centric. Consumers almost NEVER comment. They email, they pick up the phone, but they don't comment on blog posts but very rarely.
EVERY comment other Active Rain members leave is just gravy! We DO appreciate them, but we totally understand if you skip us on the blog roll and keep on trucking to something with more interest to you! We've all got limited time, right?
So we know we may bore you, but there's definitely method behind our intent. So we're cool if you don't comment, okay?
Keep on Blogging,
