Quoting one of my favorite bands the Black Eye Peas I find that phrase fitting for what I need to express. Not to long ago Bob Stewart initiated a Hyper Local Blogging Challenge. This challenge was just what I needed to kick my butt in gear to figure out AR better and BLOG more like I should. I took an AR University class to learn exactly how to maximize my local blogging posts.
I know AR and social media are the future. I know cold calling, newspaper/print ads, and door knocking are antiquated concepts and for a dying generation of Realtors. Never was that more obvious to me when I received the call from my success story.
During the challenge I wrote posts about different areas in Santa Clarita. One area I wrote about was a 55+ community in Valencia Belcaro tract. Within days of my post I received a call from Bonnie & Ron looking for a single story home in the Belcaro tract. Bonnie & Ron are almost 70 years young and are on the Internet googling for property. Light bulb! AR is the future!
Thanks to Bob's challenge I just recently closed a deal that earned me a very pretty penny! Those that haven't figured out how Active Rain can help their business not only for themselves but for their clients are definitely 2000 and late!
