The Power of Blogging - Recognition
Posted by Benjamin Dona on Sunday, July 13th, 2008 at 6:42pm.
Having learned bunches about blogging from my friends at Real Estate Webmasters, I can honestly say I have come to understand its importance to our real estate and mortgage business here in Southwest Florida. Being able to keep our clients abreast of the up-to-date goings on in the marketplace is an invaluable service that our company's Southwest Florida Blog easily provides. Throwing in some information now and then about things regarding living here in paradise and "Viola!," we have a valuable asset for both our business and our clients.
But, perhaps the most gratifying thing our blog has given us, is recognition from both the news press,our peers and our clients. Over the last 11 months of regularly blogging, we were contacted by CNN, AP, Realty Times, Florida Realtors and the Naples Daily News requesting our professional opionion on current market conditons and their impact for the SW Florida Gulf Coast.
Being approached by both the local and national press and also by other professionals within our industry is really gratifying. Most recently, Terry, our resident mortgage expert, was interviewed and quoted for an article on FHA Loan Limits in the July edition of the Florida Realtors magazine. Being recognized as an expert in your field is the highest form of flattery one can achieve in our opinion. Working hard, staying abreast of the happenings in your field, and servicing your client's needs are what make a business grow. Getting a few kudos and some recognition every now and then makes your efforts all the more worthwhile. Good show TLD!
