4th of July

Services for Real Estate Pros

This is a big, big one everyone!  Fourth of July posts generate massive amounts of traffic so be sure to light this firework!

Need a template for a local event?  Here you go.

Need some free images to include in your post?  Here you go.  

Need a kick in the pants to do this?  Come on over ;)

I cannot stress enough, 4th of July brings in the traffic.  Each blog you generate shows your face, your name, your company. You should be all over this!!

Google a term you would use if you were looking for events in your area.  See what comes up and then blog yourself.

Here are a few posts that brought in masses clicks last year.  You'll notice one of them is from 2010 which just goes to remind you to either include the date or update your old event posts.

Thanks for all the ideas.  Completely slipped my mind that we should be blogging about everything there is to do on July 4 in our area.

THx for the link.  My post got over 10000 clicks last year.  This year's post has close to 1800 so far.  Last year, the majority of clicks came the 2 days before and day of the event. 

Thx for the link...as that post is linked to current post, so it gives it a bit more juice.  - Debbie

It's a great way to use the templates, which I didn't know existed.  AR content blog writers need to utilize the formats -- they're great!

I had no idea there were templates. I suppose I need to check from out.

I must be reading your mind.  I just drafted my 4th of July and I will most likely post it tomorrow.

I remember one of my first post was about balloon ride on 4th of July (because then, I just wanted to write something!) Now there are templates and images are also offered - so why not? I'll try this time.

This year's got slightly over 20,000 clicks.  The post benefitted a bit due to rain dates and I made a bunch of changes due to that the last couple of days (and comments from regular people providing updates).

I need to figure out if there is anyway to capitalize on this local traffic for next year.

funny you should mention this as we do one each year.


Google analytics does show that it pulls traffic.
