BLOG ABOUT YOUR HOME TOWN
LOCAL EVENTS GET YOU NOTICED
Memorial Day is now behind us. I'm back to work after a few days of almost not really working this weekend. I showed a few homes every morning, and then visited with family and spent time at some of the local parks I enjoy. A few projects around the house were a part of the agenda and of course thinking about what to blog about next came into play. I have been so busy lately that I have not been writing as much content.
While contemplating what writing to focus on for a new blog, I did spend a bit of time looking at my stats. I was reminded that holiday posts get me a good deal of traffic. Traffic you say? but what about clients? Traffic on the website and no calls is not worth much. Then I remembered the calls I do receive about my holiday posts. Yes, they do keep me front and center with clients and when shared to Facebook and Google+ they increase the amount of exposure that I have. I know that I have found business in the past from these posts and writing them is not very hard. My Memorial Day post from two years ago found its way to some past clients that called me this weekend to wish me well. They saw it some where out there that I can't figure out. Personally it doesn't matter as long as I'm being found and associated with knowing my local market. When a potential client calls and says, "I'm on your website and..." I am happy.
My Memorial Day post brought me some decent traffic that lingers on for a while. These posts are sure to find their way to page one on Google. I see that my posts from two years ago keep gaining numbers.
Now that Memorial Day is over and more blogs need to be written. What next? Yes Bob Stewart (if you are still listening) - Local July 4th Fireworks schedules of course...
So if you haven't ever written a hyper local post, then be sure to read up on them at AR University. A great way to learn how to blog and these posts can be fun. If you are a pro, then write a new one for your readers or go back into an old post and switch out the info, and the dates and you are good to go. Always be sure to include the year when writing this sort of blog post. It tells the reader of events happening now rather than two years ago.
Good luck on your local posts, and enjoy!
