I would say that I am both. A large percentage of my business comes from the internet. Sarasota, Florida is a large second home market so we get a lot of internet traffic from out of town buyers. As a result, we have a competitive arena for capturing buyers online. Therefore, I spend a lot of time working on my website, blogging and building links. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I hate it.
I will have my anti-social days where I sit in front of the computer and can't be bothered with dealing with the general public. That comes from all of the phone calls and emails from people in other cities asking, "what about this listing?" or "what do you think of this neighborhood." Don't get me wrong, I love the activity. However, sometimes it is draining.
Then I have other days where I don't even want to turn on a computer. Don't talk to me about building links, adding content, or playing on Facebook. I just want to talk to people in person and work with a buyer or a seller.
Every now and then I have to remind myself that I am a Realtor first. I will actually have a hot buyer and are more concerned with writing a good blog post. That is stupid and fortunately I catch myself being stupid.
Just curious - how many of you spend a large part of your week writing in Active Rain or similar blog, building back links, adding content to your website or any other online business activities?
