365 THINGS TO DO IN THE PALM SPRINGS AREA ON INSTAGRAM

__________________________________________________________

 

In April of 2010 I began my 365 Things to do in the Palm Springs, CA Area PAGE on FACEBOOK.  It is a community page where I curate events and favorite things to do and see in the Palm Springs area.  I gather a good portion of my info from local restaurants, newspapers, magazines, hotels, community groups, neighborhoods, and their Facebook pages.  

I can trace several deals and contacts directly to this page- although I do not "push" real estate here.  I promote and support local businesses and events- not only because I want them to prosper, but because I love living here and sharing it!

365 Things to do in Palm Springs

If you want to start your own 365 Page for your area, here are a few tips:

 

1.  Post daily.  Find items and photos to share everyday.

2.  Support local businesses and share their posts.

3.  Let them know you shared, by commenting on their posts with a link to your page  : "Featured on 365 Things to do in the Palm Springs Area"!

4.  Share your photos of the area and your blogs from ActiveRain.  These links will take them to your real estate info!

5. Respond to questions promptly.  Have fun learning about your community and what's happening there!

6.  Add an 365 INSTAGRAM PAGE to tap into Insta fans!

 

As you can see below, I now have over 5600 LIKES or FANS on my 365 Page.  I usually grow by about 20 new likes a week, if I post consistently and respond to requests.

Let me know if I can help you start your page, or answer any questions you might have.

With the big three within several miles I would have a ton to write about.  Just haven't made the trip yet.

That's a pretty cool idea Kathy.  I started one of these pages about 2-3 years ago, but never did anything with it.

Kathy, Congratulations on keeping the information flowing on your 365 Things To Do page.  It is a lot of work but should be well worth it in the end.

It i pretty amazing Kathy Schowe that you have kept your 365 local page up and successful for so long!! Kudos. I think not talking about one subject everyday, linking and interacting are key to your success. Well done.

Kathy Schowe great job on your facebook page. Palm Springs is rather unique place and offers lots of things to do, when it's not too hot. I especially liked the BBC highlight of Palm Springs on your page.

At about 11 am during the summer, you better be indoors in Palm Springs. You could cook eggs on the sidewalks...Yes to maximizing all marketing opportunities...Well done

You've done a great job with your 365 page. I have one but do not post to it consistently as you do which I know is a problem. Your suggestions are terrific and will be an inspiration

I have seen and been impressed with your page.  I think the key is the consistency that you mention.  Posting irregularly is useless and likes will fall off.  Thanks for the tips.

Great job and glad it is going so well.  I created a page like this in my area but must admit I have been remiss in keeping it up.  :(
