Fourth of July Hyper Local Challenge

By
Education & Training with ActiveRain

Let's Celebrate!  Fourth of July is fast approaching and we've got a little contest for you before you indulge in the fireworks, potato salad and wine coolers.  (Wine coolers? Does anyone drink those anymore?!?!)

 

Here's the deal:  Write a Hyper Local Post about a Fourth of July event in your hometown.  Include the post in the ActiveRain Channel, Regional (Localism), Topic "Fourth of July" as well as the link in the comments below.  Your reward for doing so? ONE BILLION THOUSAND POINTS!!!!  As if that wasn't enough, the hotties (er I mean staff) at ActiveRain will be picking one grand winner for a super sweet prize!

 

The traffic of people searching for Fourth of July posts is heavy. Think of the exposure you will receive from people around your community...people buying and selling houses...you following my bread crumbs?!?!  We've had some hyper local challenges in the past and many of you have closed deals from clients who found you via your hyper local post. 

 

Get to it!  We look forward to reading your posts!  American Flag

Happy Fourth of July everyone!!!!

Kerrie Greenhalgh
