The Final Score - Comments 3 Blog Post 1

Blog Post Scoreboard


BLOG POST HOME RUN ONE
Our blog posts are a reflection of our background, training, education, experience and attitude about a multitude of subjects. That is true even when the subject of the blog is real estate related.

In most cases we are usually

  • Stating an opiinion
  • Reporting facts or statistics
  • Soliciting an opinion
  • Mentoring or training
  • Advertising our professional ability to the public
  • Building professional or personal relationships



However, there is important, additional value to a blog post. In my view (stating an opinion here) there are three important rewards that come to us in the form of comments


COMMENT HOME RUN ONE
A well constructed hyper-local or market report post should solicit comments that are a win-win for everyone.

  • Our colleagues will recognize our market expertise and refer clients to us
  • The public will also recognize our expertise and contact us to use our service

COMMENT HOME RUN TWO
Comments on our posts regarding experiences in individual real estate transactions or real estate in general may
  • Provide a perspective that differs from ours broadening the perspective and understanding for all members of the AR community.
  • Provide the incentive for others to investigate the matter further and offer the AR community a more comprehensive picture on the subject.

COMMENT HOME RUN THREE
Almost every time we post about a product, communications, methodology or write a tutorial we may
  • Learn of a better method or product to achieve the goal or, for that matter, achieve a better goal
  • Assist someone in the AR community to improve their blog posts and ultimately their performance

Nice post... and a gentle reminder of etiquette.  When our comments "broaden the perspective and understanding" of other, we've all hit a home run.

Excellent point Karen. There is always someone on AR that will learn from your post, for the most part. Perhaps they wont learn anything from a 'Speechless Sunday' post.. but you never know. Even the picture could say something about your area which will educate your reader.

Karen I am aware your reports on Woodbridge are an integral part of your market strategy to be current on many facts throughout Prince William County. The obvious goal is to provide your clients with the very best possible representation and blog posting is an excellent method and may include posts about other interesting locations
