Last week I had our Tuesday Ask An Ambassador post ready to go. Fully written, picture attached, tags and groups assigned, everything but clicking SUBMIT.
But I never clicked SUBMIT. Instead, I wrote an entirely different post to publish.
Because when all was said and done, I wasn't satisfied with the outcome. I think the topic was valid. We'd had a less than positive experience at a local restaurant and the theme Bait & Switch seemed worth exploring. Easy enough to relate it to real estate blogging and our overall business.
Any post can be your FIRST impression, be it a consumer or another Rainer, and what impression would that post leave?
As someone worth referring business?
As the right agent to help with buying or selling a home?
It's the acid test of posting or not posting.
There's a saying about never blogging about sex, religion or politics. Maybe you can, maybe you can't, depending on your audience. It's a risk you have to evaluate. Under the right circumstances, you might decide any of those topics is fair game.
But will that FIRST IMPRESSION find someone like minded? Or put you on someone's DO NOT CALL list?
Until next Tuesday, just Ask An Ambassador if you need help,
Bill & Liz aka BLiz
We get off on the right foot and there's a good chance of building a good relationship.
