|Real Estate & Daytona Beach Community Events blog. By Lisa C. Hill, "THE SMART CHOICE!"|
Today I decided to scroll through my "blog history" here on the Active Rain Real Estate Network and discovered some interesting information about my Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach, Port Orange, Ponce Inlet and other miscellaneous home town real estate blog posts.
My history on Active Rain began in April of 2007. I filled out my profile on April 3. On April 5 I sent out some invitations, and two of my associates joined. And on April 11, I started commenting, and posted 2 blogs. OK, so that's not exactly exciting news. So I'll get to the point.
I write a lot of blog posts for Localism. And I know that every once in a while, one of them gets featured. Well, since I was going through my entire history, out of curiosity I opened each post that had been featured on Localism as I went along. Then, since I had them all open in different tabs, I decided I might as well share them with all of you. Why? Because I know that some people don't see the purpose of posting to Localism. And I think I can change your thinking on this subject.
Because I'm a Daytona Beach native, I can write knowledgeable blog posts about this area. And because this is Central Florida, needless to say, many people want to move here. Being a real estate agent in the greater Daytona Beach area means I get calls from real estate buyers who want to relocate to this area, or from those who want to buy a winter residence here, or from real estate sellers who are interested in upsizing or downsizing from their current home, to another one. But the bottom line is, most people want to live in a warmer climate, and they love to live near the beach!
I've gotten a lot of real estate listings from my blog posts. Of course I get real estate buyers as well, when they call or e-mail me for more information on my listings. But Localism plays a huge part in my SEO, and in showcasing our parks, museums, beaches and more. When real estate sellers or buyers call, the majority of the time, they tell me they've been reading my blog posts for a while, and they appreciate the information I've been providing.
So for all you real estate bloggers who would like to post blogs to Localism, but aren't sure what to discuss in those blogs, I hope this will help. The following links are to my blog posts that were Localism Featured. I hope this helps to spark some ideas for you, and maybe you'll enjoy reading about our area as well =)
