I'm voracious when it comes to learning. SEO and social marketing, I'm a bit naive on, but I still love to learn and read. I know my business, but want to be cutting edge for guidelines and regulations and the direction of the mortgage market.
NOW COMES ACTIVE RAIN!
Every day I want to read a certain amount of posts off of the blog scroll. What's the issue? Well there's a few.
- With almost 200,000 members that scroll flies by in the blink of an eye. I'll see two that I want to read and by the time I'm done with the first, the second preview is gone;
- I hate reading posts about listings. I'm finally smart enough to know that those posts aren't directed at me, rather to SEO and Joe Q. Public, but there are times that when I look at the blog scroll, 100% of the posts are listings. Gross for people like me who want to interact with others and learn;
- Trying to balance between people who I subscribe to and finding new people who enrapture me with knowledge, experience, values or even just humor is a difficult thing to do.
So the Question Really becomes how do you determine which posts are worthy. I want new people mixed with people or writers or educators in our industry who are tried and true. With so many new people and psost previews going past you in the blink of an eye,
the title of your post needs to be either catchy or informative
and the content better be
worth the bait that I just bit on when I clicked on your link.
So many posts, so little time.....what's a guy to do?
These posts scroll by so fast. If you're going to get noticed, give me something to sink my teeth into!!!!
