It was music to my ears.
Probably the goal of anyone using blogging to enhance their online presence.
And I have heard it 3 times in the last week. Pretty incredible for me.
I have always had my website. Static. A necessity for a Realtor, for sure. But not interactive at all.
It never really answered the question, "Who is Ken Tracy?"
That's where my blog came in.
I committed myself to active participation on the real estate network Active Rain back in February of this year. I have always enjoyed the experience, exchanging ideas and challenges with Realtors across the country. But I never truly believed it would help me generate business...
It started last week. A seller who has had his home on the market called me and utterred those beautiful words...
"Hi Ken, I found you on the internet."
And then again yesterday, a reporter for the Naperville Sun called and asked me for my thoughts on the economic issues facing the country. The article turned out to be the cover story. (It was also worth a 1000 bonus points here on Active Rain. Who knew?).
This afternoon, my phone rang again. This time, a buyer in nearby Downers Grove wanted to talk about some opportunities in her community.
Three calls generated in less than a week? From blogging? Who would have thought?
And I am just getting started.
How much business will this generate? How many leads?
Who knows. But like I said...
I am just getting started.
