Active Rain Brings Free Local Newspaper Exposure


Active Rain ran a wonderful, inspiring challenge in December to help us all keep busy promoting ourselves through actively blogging.    I decided to jump on board and blog the daily blog post that was required, but wanted to put the posts to good use.   I wrote some of my posts to promote local businesses, and help our town pick up energy again.

One of the posts on Active Rain that I wrote for the "  31 Days in December Challenge"    was about Keelers Hardware Store here in Wilton, CT.   I decided to go all out and post videos, interviews, pictures, and lots of descriptions of their Christmas tree and decorations sale during December.   The Christmas trees were a new thing for the store, so it was fun to promote.

A few weeks after Christmas, I got a call from a reporter from the local newspaper,
The Wilton Bulletin, wanting to ask some questions about the blogging challenge.   She had seen it online, and wanted to know what this was all about.   The reporter then wrote up quite a nice and large article in the paper about what we do here on Active Rain.  The great thing about it was that, not only did I get some great free press out of it, but so did Keelers Hardware Store and a few other stores here in Wilton, CT and of course, lots about Active Rain!!!!  

So, not only was my post on Active Rain easy for the reporter to stumble upon, but it brought plenty of free press in addition!   A second article was written after that about the mood of the real estate in
our town, and the reporter called upon me again!

Thanks, Active Rain!
