I was doubtful (initially) about Community Pages but I have to admit the more success stories I read the more I realize we're missing out. Way to go Karen, your post motivated me to get going so we've sponsored a community (which is now in pending status) and will be adding on to the list as we continue to close escrows!
My first call!! I got a call directly from my new community page. Last night I was happily watching the Food Network and dreaming of eating.....I'm on a 3 day fast (different post)....and I got a phone call from someone who had read a post I put on my new community page. They want to see homes this weekend.
Now I realize that anyone can post to any of these pages, but I've tried to make sure that I am the main contributor and it paid off. She mentioned that she saw my "featured" page on Active Rain....of course it's the Community Page. Then she read all my blogs on Mission Viejo and said she wanted to work with an "expert." Yeah!! Instant success!
She was very friendly, so I asked her if she was more influenced by my "sponsorship" or the posts...she said BOTH. Which is good information for those who are sponsoring quite a few neighborhoods....be sure and post blogs there also. She read my posts FIRST and then looked to see that I also sponsored the community.
So....thanks Active Rain for another great idea and my new client! Community pages are a success.
