Andy, I love the otters and it's soooo beautiful up there! My favorite clients are from Maine and have assured me I would freeze to death, but what gorgeous country!
OH, to answer your question - my listing video template always includes local interests and curiosities . . . there is a LOT more to see around here than one would think - and that draws many many visitors and seasonals . . . we are 'Little Vegas On The Colorado River' . . .

I used to do that and rarely do these days.  From time to time I will mention a Farmers Market in one of my market reports or a listing in that MLS area.

I used to do a weekly blog about local events for the upcoming week.  Was a hassle and didn't draw any views.  Used to have it on my site as well and eventually took it down.

 

Now I might do one or two a year, if I go to an event.  My newsletter does have upcoming events though.

I share information on the communities that I serve and do add events - in fact, I have a FB page that is just for events in our area! 

I'm with you, Andrew Mooers - we do more than move homes, we sell a lifestyle and share our knowledge of the area with those relocating to our areas!

All of my listings have neighborhood and area information attached to them. And I don't ever "peddle" anything. But I do a bang-up job marketing.

On my listing videos I try to include a 45 second 'Chamber of Commerse' type trailer related to that community.

However for DUNEDIN FL I don't limit myself to 45 seconds.

I've always wanted to get the river otters, manatees and anhingas on Weeki  Wachee, but water and a $2,000 camera make me uncomfortable.
