Writing Localism Posts Brings Value to the Writer, Too!
We all know that writing localism posts is important for a number of reasons.
They bring more traffic to our blogs, help grow our business, and provide information that home buyers are looking for, to name a few.
Here is a recent post about Localism posts that is well worth reading if you want to know more about why these posts are important and to gather some great ideas:
“There’s More Than One Way to Skin a Localism Post” by Margaret Goss.
Writing Localism posts also provide plenty of value for the writer, too:
You become more knowledgeable about the local community as you seek out places and events to write about, and this gets you out from behind that computer. Plus your increased knowledge provides more value to your clients
Your writing skills improve – the more you write about what’s going on, the more likely your writing will get better.
You become a more well-rounded person as you learn about, and experience, all that is taking place in your local community. You will no doubt find some surprising things!
You will have some fun when you are out and about, and will actually be taking time off from work to enjoy your personal life
Your photography skills will improve as you take tons more photos to use in your Localism posts. If you don’t shame on you! Who wants a Localism post without pics?
Your readers will get you know you better as a person, and as someone with an interest in the local community, which will encourage buyers and sellers to want to work with you
Not only will you learn more about local businesses (retailers, services, restaurants) but you may create potential referral business
You may get some publicity in the local paper
And perhaps your post will be featured on AR and that means even more points
So are you getting the benefits of writing Localism posts?
