Missy Caulk and Bob Stewart did a seriously great job of presenting blogging today at Keller Williams in Ann Arbor. Karen Moorhead has laid it all out below.
- Ed Vielmetti, non-Realtor, but blogging superstar, live blogged
- Many of us tweeted the whole seminar
I was thrilled to see all of the interest in blogging in Ann Arbor. And Missy was a gem for sharing her vast knowledge with her competitors.
THIS IS A REBLOG. Please save your comments for Karen's blog.
This was a motivating presentation, whether you have been in the rain for a while or if you are just starting out. The information was excellent and provided great inspiration.
Missy is very generous with her knowledge and this one slide is the essence of her thoughts about posts. Share who you are to the public and let them get to know you!
The other aspect to how totally cool this was the group of people who attended and how they found out about the event. One of my favorite local bloggers who has nothing to do with real estate, attended and that was because Maureen Francis wrote a tweet this morning that we had Bob Stewart of Active Rain in town today. So Ed Vielmetti attended just to see what we are doing on the net and how we do it. (Ed thanks for attending!)
Point here: Get on Twitter! Post important events on Twitter and who knows who will show up at your meetings.
Stay active in the Rain. If someone does a presentation on blogging - attend this meeting. I think you will find friends who you haven't met in person, but it is just a wonderful experience to put a face with a name.
Most importantly Missy's message was an excellent one and that is to blog to get business. It is how people find her and decide to work with her.
Bob Stewart talked about all the places which no one as covered as yet. The opportunities are huge! Take your own photos and write about the neighborhoods, unless you have so much business you can't handle any more. If you need to grow your business then having an Active Rain voice will help get you where you want to go.
You might also find some friends along the way.
As much as I love these photos, the meeting was even better!
Missy Caulk, Bob Stewart and Chet Hill were all helpful in pulling this event together.
