Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Infinity

With the new year upon us, many have been making goals for 2010...

Since my attention span rarely lasts a whole year, I prefer to make shorter term goals. 

Last night I thought up my business goal for the next month...

Goal for January 2010:  A Month of Market Reports.

That's right.  31 posts about the local real estate market.

My plan is to write about subdivisions in and around Naperville.

Here is why:

  1. I have never done it.  Most of my posts are about my life and my experiences as a Realtor.  Interesting, but not always the Naperville real estate content which serious buyers and sellers seek out online. 

  2. I will learn more about the Naperville Real Estate Market.  After four plus years, I know the market well.  But I can know it better.  Knowledge is power.  Time to stock up.

  3. I will be providing valuable local real estate information to the reading public.   Amazingly, the Naperville real estate market seems underserved by bloggers.  I want to fill the void.

  4. I will become a better blogger.  I am lacking in my knowledge of keywords, tags, SEO (search engine optimization), and Google juice.  Again, knowledge is power.  Over the next month, I will learn about these and more.

  5. This is the time to be in front of the public.  There is tremendous pent up demand in the real estate market.  People will be searching online.  I want them to find me.

  6. My collection of great Naperville real estate pictures will grow.  I already own thousands of pictures of my local market.  I want that to grow.  I plan on including two pictures in every market report.

  7. I want to be on page one of Google.  After two years of blogging, I should be on the first page of Google for searches such as "Naperville real estate" and "Naperville Realtor".  I am not.  This must change...

  8. It sounds fun.  I wouldn't do it if it wasn't fun...

If you would like to take a look at one of my first two market reports, you can go here or here.

Have an awesome 2010!

Good afternoon my friend,

I think that I like doing the month to month goal setting sounds like a fresh idea.  The one thing I didn't see was when will you be plann the next month?

Good luck on your new venture and may you have a very prosperous new year.

Ken - all the best that is a lot of market information to gather and disseminate. The rest of what you are planning to do will also keep you out of mischief for awhile.

Hi Kathy.  Thanks for reading.  Ahead of schedule...

Each post probably takes me two hours, between the pictures, the writing, the linking, and the posting...

I will be busy!

Thanks again,

Ken-Such a great way to start off the new year. I really know that gathering info for market reports is a lot of work, and I believe that it is really worth it.
