The Unveiling of a New Year of Blogging!
Greetings Naples Real Estate Blog Fans!
We are nearly one week into the new year and I am trying to come up with some fresh ideas to increase activity on our blog! One thing which I am going to try to do this year is keep a "patterned pace" when posting. I've learned several tips from fellow bloggers, and more regular posting seems to be one of the keys to successful blogging. Keep in mind, when I began to blog 4 years ago, only 3% of the real estate population blogged. That percentage has increased substantially, but as of this writing, I only know of two other agents in my office, of over 80 agents, that blog. Of course, I'm not referring to the "micro-blogging" done on Facebook or TWITTER --I'm talking about a real, honest-to-goodness, consistent blogging! So, with all that being said, I am looking to my faithful followers for any ideas and content suggestions. My intention is to select a local Naples vendor or restaurant to feature every Monday. On Wednesdays I will feature one of The Harris-Peppe Team listings, upcoming open houses, recent price reductions or news and accomplishments of one of our team members. Then on Fridays, I will post about trends in Naples real estate, local statistics, links to news worthy articles, best buys, and other information that I believe will be both interesting and [hopefully] entertaining! I've even thought of maybe doing a monthly "Where in Naples Am I?" with a prize for the first follower to guess my location! Anyway, I am very excited to continue and improve my postings. Since 2007 I have blogged over 300 posts. It is very time consuming, but the results have been extraordinary, and the business we have gotten from this is excellent. Most of my audience isn't ready to buy right now, but I can't tell you how many emails and phone calls we get from folks who tell us that when they are ready to buy their dream home in Naples Florida, they would not consider working with any one else except The Naples Real Estate Blogger!
Thank you again for reading our blog. We wish you a very Happy New Year, and we look forward to hearing from you with any fun ideas and suggestions!
