People Like Touching Our SIF Stuff

 Just a quick update...

This past August 4th the Stage It Forward (SIF) widget was created & released.

Since then, I am happy to report, it has been doing well and is attracting a nice amount of attention in the way of clicks. 2,176 clicks to be exact!

Considering it is just the first 10 days this is NO shabby start. This means we are averaging 217 hits a day coming in from all the SIF widgets placed out there.

You may wonder WHY to install the SIF widget to your website or blog site?

Well, as you know, (because sometimes in life you are one too) if a consumer is interested in something they typically want to research it. Consumers hunger for current information... so finding Stage It Forward on Active Rain is like hitting a MOTHER LOAD.

But besides that reason... for your personal marketing concerns, your association with the Stage It Forward group demonstrates that you are part of a united nationwide INDUSTRY and a community willing to grow and educate itself and others via the vast amount of information we develop and we freely share. 

As a whole we are establishing ourselves as a well articulate and educated industry... which is super important when it comes to creating credibility in the consumer market and the Realtor market.

Anyway, I just thought you all might like an update.

Widget It Forward...

OH-H, I want your blidget. I set up one for my blog and have it here on AR and my web site. I would love to add your blidget to my WP blog in the sidebar, but the dot-com version of WP doesn't allow any java script.

I tried this thing the first time you mentioned it, and of course, can't get it to work.  No doubt I'll have to get hold of Technical Support.  Again.  Oy!  Do you get points every time someone clicks on it?

I've seen it on other's websites and it looks really cheerful and fun.  Who did the logo for this group, by the way?

Thanks for reminding me to get working on my site.  I am in the same Club as Juliet and Lori Kim.....I tried to install it on my blog page and couldn't get it to work.  I will try again this weekend.  I am sure it is me and not the Widgetbox!
