HOW TO USE YOUR BLOG TO CREATE BUSINESS RELATIONSHIPS

Last week Bob Stewart announced a new ActiveRain Challenge called Using Your Blog To Enhance Existing RelationshipsWrite a post detailing how you have used the content of your blog to reach out to an existing prospect or client.

The purpose of my blogging is to provide information and to better educate prospective clients whether they be buyers or sellers.  Not always do they like to have their name in print on my blogs so I created a booklet that I keep in my office for prospects to take a look at.  In this it covers how ActiveRain is a place to get more information and what it has to offer... also there are events that happen in Cromwell, issues they should be aware of, as well as listings.

A link to my profile on ActiveRain is on the cover too.

Wow, the booklet is a great idea.  I'm going to have to do something like that.  Thanks for the idea.

Valerie, thanks for the idea.

Tammy... I had some clients that did not feel comfortable about my blogging their name(s) on ActiveRain, so I came up with the booklet.  This way I can put their comments in here, and only people coming into the office would see it.  My clients felt better about it.  It isn't so public.

Valerie, you must be feeling better if you are back to blogging.  AR can be a great tool in getting our message out.

Valerie, you always have great posts and information.  Keep it up!  Happy Halloween to you too!

George.. Yesterday was  the deadline for this challenge.  I dragged my sorry butt out of bed to do this.  Can you tell I'm addicted to AR?

That is a fantastic idea.  I like that it respects client's privacy.  Thank you.

Philip.... Not all people are inclined to go public with information.. they *do* like their privacy.  This booklet respects that.. and at the same time is available for prospects and/or clients to review.  This booklet also has testimonials in it as well.

That's a good idea to have a booklet
