Laura Baker, a great stager in Jefferson, WI, is proof positve that blogging works.  I'm sure you'll be inspired after reading her blog.

Me, my strangest phone call was from someone wanting to market reservations for a Tucson dude ranch.  Hey, my name and number are out there!!!!

The Power of Active Rain,
Localism,
what are you waiting for? 


Okay all, I know I have been absent for a bit, but it's hard to keep up with blogging when blogging keeps you SOOooooo,,,,......busy!  Does that make any sense at all?  Let me back track just a bit!

I knew upon returning from vacation (okay, a couple of vacations, but who's counting?)  I have several consultations, one property to destage (oh yeah, SOLD! ~ Blog coming on that one!) and a few instilations to do.  BUSY is good!  Right?

But, it's tough to keep blogging when you're so busy! 

That being said, it is SOooo,,,.... important to keep blogging!


For the last couple
of months I have blogged at least once everyday.  What do you think has led me to being so busy? 


Let me give you an idea,....


Two weeks ago, I got a call from someone wanting to set up a hair cut,... guess where they got my number from?  Yep,... my localism blog-post on The Hair Salon in Lake Mills WI, top space on Google page one!  I now have another contact in my data base and that person is very happy with The Hair Salon in Lake Mills WI!

Yesturday,
I was on my way home from a long day's staging instillation when my phone rang.  Someone was looking for childcare.  They "Googled" my name and viola' the whole first page of Google was my BBB of WI profiles and my Active Rain posts.  Best part,... that person just happens to be a local Realtor®!  Do you think she was impressed by the "Google Juice" I get?  You betcha baby!  Now she's asking me for referrals,... post on that another day!

Just this morning a neighbor of mine was looking for information on the Jefferson Summer Reading Program,.... Guess who's information was the first to pop up on page one of Google?  Oh yeah, my localism post on the Jefferson Summer Reading Program!  How many other people do you think have seen this post if my next door neighbor did?



So,... if you're still not sure if localism is important,...  see the following blog-posts;

I knew you'd have experiences with this, Jennifer.  You've been on much longer than I.  What was your most fun call to get, not real estate related?

LOL, timing is everything.  I just got a call for Dad's catering service - a recent blog.  Fortunately, I have his card right on top of my desk with the "real" number, LOL.

Hi Juli, it's amazing isn't it?  I'm happy to get the calls or emails about the Fireworks, or information about horses in Glacier View or where can I buy more knives like I got at the Greening?  I know from those callers that people are reading!

I'm right with you Mary.  And, it gives me a chance to brag about my area even more.
