Throwback Thursdays…Market Reports, Listings, and Comments.
Several years ago I wrote a post that was inspired by one from our Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400
It had to do with being courteous and professional with our comments on consumer-focused posts of fellow members.
For example, someone posts about a new listing…
Supportive: “Congratulations on your new listing. Best of luck for a quick sale.”
Not so much: “The seller should update the appliances in the kitchen.”
Listing and market reports are consumer-driven or focused… the ones that you hope will gain good SEO and attract consumers (those who will hopefully help keep your boats afloat.)
Because ActiveRain is the community it is, we need to
respect the blogs of others...
Agree to disagree.
Say something positive
Write your own post about the subject
All of these are options for us. But always remember that this is their blog and we should respect that.
If you’re the blog author you could disable comments but is that really what you want?
It would be like talking to a brick wall! And that would be okay if you had no interest whatsoever in any kind of interaction (meaning REFERRALS) with other members.
Next time you comment on a consumer-focused post, remember what all our Aunt Marthas would tell us…
If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all!
