They Read and They Call

What do kitty cats, horse races, getting enough sleep, missing a day of blogging and scams have to do with real estate? 

These were a few of the topics I have written about in the past couple weeks.

 

Professionals from around the country have commented and I have talked to other members about these subjects. The scam discussion was a topic on my radio show.

 One of my new sellers is an animal lover and this kind of transparency solidified his choice of using me.

Clients, both past and present, have mentioned these articles and two  even suggested a name for my friend's kitty. Missing a day of blogging made the phone ring...just to see if I was okay. 

I'm not saying that writing one article on a cat or talking about  squirrels  will cause  your phone to ring off the hook.  That's because there are no more phone hooks.

Friends, colleagues and clients who follow me or find me on the internet gets a feel for who I am. Besides it is fun for me.

 

I look at blogging as a professional day to day diary.

 

 

They read and they call.

I have one particular blog that I wrote about an International Market here in Sacramento.  I have received more calls from folks thinking they have reached that store, than the total number of calls I've gotten from all other of my blogs. I'm still trying to figure out why that is!

Myrl Jeffcoat I remember getting calls to order corned beef sandwiches and crab cakes from all the restaurant blogs I did in the beginning.

Those callers still have to live in houses. Sometimes you can get a conversation started by being so helpful and giving them the store hours or location.

I get call about the free tickets I offered to the home show several years ago. They ask if I still have some. I think that is so funny.

Debbie Reynolds You might have to get tickets to some other show to give out to the callers. They just may need to buy or sell a house.

Every year around Halloween I can count on getting several phone calls from all over the country (and even Europe!) about my costume posts. Never fails! I always enjoy those calls even though they don't make me a dime!

Posted by Sharon Tara, New Hampshire Home Stager (Sharon Tara Transformations) over 1 year ago

Hi Margaret - We never know what subjects will pique the interest of those who run across our blogs, but it's certain that if we don't write anything, the phone will remain silent.

Posted by Dick Greenberg, Northern Colorado Residential Real Estate (New Paradigm Partners LLC) over 1 year ago

Sharon Tara Getting those calls are so much fun. You never know who might know someone needing staging in NH!

Dick Greenberg How profound. If we don't write it..we won't know.

Kind of like "You have to play to win!"

Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland - blogging is like a daily journal - keep notes of what we are doing, daily.

(And I do see, you are yet to post today - nothing from 5/25, yet...lol!)

Posted by Praful Thakkar, Andover, MA: Andover Luxury Homes For Sale (LAER Realty Partners) over 1 year ago

I agree, Margaret, blogging does keep the phone ringing. I get calls all the time on my localism post as well as from buyers.

Posted by Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor®, Lewisburg WV, the go to agent for all real estate (Vision Quest Realty, Martha Hilton, Broker) over 1 year ago

Praful Thakkar It is like a daily journal and I am still going for a post a day. Occasionally miss one every few months.

Rebecca Gaujot Those calls are the icing on the cake. Love talking with people who have either read my blogs or listened on the show.
