I post listings only.
This is a good question. I have found that some of my recent posts have not received the traffic so I think I have to re-evaluate the topics I post under!
I tend to write about a variety of topics so it changes with the subject.
Larry, under a wide variety of topics as it depends on what the post is about and who the intended audience is. I am very hesitant to post something under "humor or just for fun" as I was one time chided for placing it there on what I thought was a clever and humorous post!
I post to a lot of different topics. First I have the idea of what I want to write, and then I write it and select the category it belongs in. I post a lot of home buying and selling and local posts. I also do some just for fun stuff. I'm all over the board.
mortage/finance. I'm a lender and many of my posts are related to the lending industry
The most is learned from the tech posts... the insertions are done in a round robin of them all. Localism is key to be the local go to for knowledge.
I select the community and topic appropriate for the audience I hope will read.
For example, I do not wish for 'public' to read how to hold a goal oriented open house, so I will be kept within the AR community.
If I want critical review of an marketing idea, I'll post to PUBLIC since I don't market to the AR community and the public is most likely able to reveal to what they will respond.
And if I'm trolling for points, I post where the greatest number of eyes exist.
Good questions Larry, I post mostly to the ActiveRain Community thinking it would have a wider audience.
I do a lot of Home Buying and Home Selling and some local posts and AR Community. When it is a listing, it will go in the buy or sell category so it can be seen by buyers and sellers.
I don't look at topic. Now that I think about it I comment on listings, market reports, personal posts, I'm across the board.
Usually under Market Trends - my posts are usually market reports, Larry.
I post to many as they fit.
