It makes a huge difference to post a video inside of a blog post for a listing, and share both on all of my face book pages.

Great hits on both the post and the video.

And quite a few calls.

A post can get 1.5 million read from around the world and the phone remains quiet or get 700 local views and the phone does ring.

Passion words get lots of eyes.

Event Based Marketing (EBM) get the local audience.

The shiny things matter little in ''getting the eyes' but does matter in keeping them.

Can't say I pay a whole lot of attention... for me, I look at this like a "whole" and have a mix of listings, localism posts, market reports, etc. to build what I call "street cred." I get lots of traffic on localism posts, but really no business from it... just too many calls asking me where they can get a job, spay a cat, etc.
