Finally All This Blogging Pays Off
With the urging of some very influential people in my personal and professional life, I began blogging more than 2 years ago.
I read blogs that touted how others got business and made the best of something called SEO. Listening to motivational speaker, Tom Ferry, made me think that there was something to this idea of "social media". Hey, I've been in the real estate business for 25 years. It's a big learning curve!
Just jumping in was fun. Talking real estate, reading about real estate, meeting and learning from real estate professionals all over the country but, I never saw the results that other people said they got.
Oh, scratch that. I did get a few calls off community posts that I wrote. People calling me to ask what the hours were for a restaurant or consignment shop, or where the Medway Santa Parade was being held.
Oh yes, and how could I forget that I did get a call for someone asking where they might find some live, (yes LIVE) chickens citing a post I had entitled The Chicken and The Egg. (another lesson learned)
But, I never got a new business call. I knew it was beneficial and people must have been googling me, saw my ramblings and that added to my experience and credibility, but I never saw an actual lead from it.
Until this week that is. And, as luck will have it, I received two in this one week! A referral from a Realtor in another state and a lead from someone in the school administration in the area, who called me after reading a neighborhood post I had written.
As much as the slacker in me said give up, I kept going. The two new leads have fueled a new fire, and made me really believe that done properly this can fuel my business as well.
Some will say I am slow on the take. I know who you are and might have to agree! Having said that, I have new thoughts, ideas and direction.
