Barrows & Associates - Increased Inquiries after the election.

By
Real Estate Agent with Barrows & Associates

We have noticed a huge increase in inquiries after the election. Many of our listings are being shown and even a few contracts written. Hopefully this will be a trend for the rest of the year.

Have you noticed any increase in web traffic or inquires in your market?

Kevin Sandridge's Facebook profileHi Brian , and Welcome to the Rain!

Kevin Sandridge, here.  I joined the Active Rain community not too long ago myself and wanted to drop a line to share some of the good vibes and welcome wishes I have received already.

I'm very excited about this community - basically because folks seem so willing to help out, provide industry insight, and share their good news and experiences!

You may want to check your formatting... seems, at least on my screen, your posts range far right - requiring a good bit of horizontal scrolling... ?

A few things: 

One:  Be sure to include a good amount of information on your profile page.  Check out the profiles on other Realtor's sites here on Active Rain who are listed as "Featured" or "Tops" in their area (look for high point totals).  You'll find that this will seriously boost your presence on ActiveRain - via the added points. 

Two: I urge you to keep blogging on this site!  You will be AMAZED at the awesome feedback you receive very soon after they hit the network!  I use Google Reader to subscribe to blogs that provide me with ideas about what I'd like to comment on - both industry wise and just for fun!  Check it out I am more than willing to step you through the site and to help you get a few more blog posts generated if you wish - as a way of adding some value and paying forward some good networking vibes!  :)

Three: Be sure to add in a good number of posts about what you think and consider pertinent regarding your area of expertise!  You'll notice that many if not all of the Featured posting bloggers here on AR do this.

Lastly, I do quite a lot of work via social networks, email campaigns, and relationship building.  If I can ever be of any assistance, don't hesitate to ask.


Looking forward to what you'll share with us all here on Active Rain!  :)

Blessings,

Kevin Sandridge

Welcome to Active Rain! This is a great website for building your business, as well as learning from others.  Pat yourself on the back, because you made a GREAT choice in joining the blogosphere!

Write often, and write whatever comes to mind.  Blogs about personal topics and non-real estate items are often the best.  It helps your readers to bond with you, and ends up bringing you a lot of business!

Good luck with your future blogging.  If you'd like more info on points in Active Rain, I wrote a blog about it (click here). Feel free to ask me any questions if you need a hand!
