Thanks to ActiveRain University, and Bob Stewart, I learned way back how to write specific ways to come up on the front page of Google. I am now right behind and second only to Trulia, passing all others from larger websites. I passed Realtor.com, and every other Realtor, thanks to what I learned in ActiveRain University. No other Realtor in the area can say this!
This post isn't meant to attract consumers, but letting you know how you can be found on the first page of Google. You have to be found on Google, as well other places people search, Social Media is a major place, as well as all the other places they are searching.
Is your AR blog going to Facebook? My business page points them to me, flowing to other social media sites, putting my name out to the masses. We never know where people are searching to find something they want. I want to be there, I want to be where the action is!
Sadly, I see many posting daily to their AR blog, I like seeing their posts each day, wishing their main goal was to reach consumers, not just to write a post, but in a way to reach the most important people, consumers searching on the Internet.
Recently I received a call asking which restaurants where serving Thanksgiving Dinner. I knew hadn't posted my Thanksgiving post, and I knew it came from my post last year.
I received two other calls this week asking where they could get information about "Toys for Tots and Helping Hands". I looked up the information, and called them right back. Likely these won't result in a sale, but it keeps my name up there.
My blog is a success, as I am now the "go to person" to contact.
I liked getting the calls, as it cements that I am the local expert to contact, the person to call regarding whatever they are looking for.
It is easy to be the go to person in your area, once you learn how to write in a way to reach consumers wherever they are. You goal should be to be the first person they call, because they found you on the Internet.
It's easy to do, you are always post daily, now just change your focus in a way to rise to the top so you will be the first one they pull up, not by your name, but how people will be searching. I owe it all to ActiveRain University, and Bob Stewart, and it can happen to you.
By the way, I know I said this wasn't about business, but I couldn't help but add a few links at the bottom, pointing to anyone wanting to move here. This is not the way I would write in my other posts. Be sure to hit the SPELL button because it will forever be seen on the Internet. I recently wrote a post quickly, and put it out there, but one of my favorite persons, emailed me to check my spelling.
