Promoting Your Community Promotes You

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Ultimate

Karen Sign

One of the most obvious ways to promote yourself in your community is for you to promote your community.
  • Local business - not an S&P 500 firm, but the small businesses that provide you with the level of service you provide your clients
  • Recreational venues that make your community an ideal place to call home
  • Community service represents the commitment people in your community make to its' citizens. It's an opportunity for you to participate in the effort and to be known as an involved citizen.
Bob Stewart, Brad Andersohn and the AR staff have always stressed the need to include these items as an integral part of our hyper-local approach to blogging. It makes sense when you consider your community is more than houses - it's the reason you live there. I've listed a few exampes to give you ideas.


LOCAL BUSINESSRECREATION COMMUNITY SERVICE
  • As a member of the West Springfield Rotary Club I am involved with and donate to the Community Blood Drive
  • I support and assist with a program that brings Christmas to underpriviledged children at Kristi’s Christmas
  • At Covenant Presbyterian Church we work with Operation Turkey that feeds almost 2,100 needy families.

Karen, and along with this type of posting, you will get calls from people thinking you are the Restaurant, the historical site, etc.! lol I even gave a number to a guy a couple of days ago who was looking for the golf club in our neighborhood. Cracks me and my family up :)

Karen,

I'm all about my community, what it has to offer and what I give back to it (not monetary but in volunteer work).  I always make sure I add that I don't just sell this community, I live here too.  That really matters to buyers.

Supporting local business will always stay very important.  It is by far the best thing to do to support your local community. More of your dollars stay in your community and this is good for many reasons, including home values in neighborhoods.

Thanks for sharing your ideas on this blogging.
