Use Wikipedia Content in your Web Marketing

wikiWe’ve discussed on this blog before about creating a niche for yourself in the real estate marketplace.

Indeed, many sales and rental agents have achieved success through marketing to a specific group or community, ranging from student rentals to luxury sales.

If your niche is geography-specific ( or any niche, really), you can easily enhance your web presence using neighbourhood content from wikipedia.com.

Wikipedia is a free, online encyclopedia project. There are roughly 10 million articles written collaboratively by volunteers around the world… this includes articles about your neighbourhood!

By searching wikipedia’s vast library for your neighbourhood, you will likely find valuable demographic, historical, and community events information, which can be re-used on your own web page.

You can start your search here:

Neighbourhoods in Alberta

Neighbourhoods in British Columbia

Neighbourhoods in Manitoba

Neighbourhoods in New Brunswick

Neighbourhoods in Newfoundland and Labrador

Neighbourhoods in Nova Scotia

Neighbourhoods in Ontario

Neighbourhoods in Prince Edward Island

Neighbourhoods in Quebec
