The ActiveRain Stuff You Won't Find Anywhere Else on the Web

RainCamp San Diego - What If All 2859 Members Show Up

I am really excited about coming to Southern California for ActiveRain's RainCamp in San Diego, one of the best real estate events of the year.  This one is going to be extra special because Bob will be back joining us from his recent wedding and honeymoon.  We missed you in Portland Bob! :-)

What If All 2859 Members Show Up?  Then we'll have one heck of a party and after gathering!!

On August 5th I will be in beautiful San Diego, with three of the most influential people in real estate: Jonathan Washburn, our CEO and Founder of ActiveRain,  Mr. Ben Kinney, a Mega Agent from Seattle and now Nationally renowned speaker, and back by popular demand, Bob Stewart, ActiveRain's Community Evangelist.

At RainCamp we'll be talking about all kinds of strategies to improve your online presence and to help you earn business using the web.  No RainCamp is ever exactly the same because the local markets change and each demographic is unique to that geographic area.  Bringing in some of the local experts and talent is always exciting and a huge learning experience for us all.

At RainCamp on August 5th we will:
  • Show you how we have helped thousands of our members rank at the top of the search engines (Google, Yahoo, MSN, etc.) for searches in their market.
  • Share how Donna Harris, a RE/MAX agent from Austin, Texas used her blog to make $122,000 in commissions over the last two years doing what you can do in your own market.
  • Reveal how a plan and some guidance can help you use blogging to impact your business and get the same results as Donna.
  • Show you how to use Facebook, Twitter, and other social media to earn more business.
  • Provide you with a day full of great info to take home with you and implement immediately!
RainCamp is brought to you by ActiveRain and we have made it possible for everyone to attend with donation based tickets.  We want everyone to have access to the information we are sharing - it's that important for the success of your business as the internet becomes more and more, a crucial part of your lead generation.  

See how past RainCamp attendees are raving about how RainCamp has helped their business. You really don't want to miss an event of this magnitude, plus they really are more fun than you could ever imagine a one-day conference or seminar. 

Make sure you come up to me and give me your business card with the word "RainMaker" written on it somewhere,  I'll have a cool surprise for you if you do.
(this is the only time or place I'll mention this, so don't forget)

I may have to stay longer at this one you guys, just so I can take in some of the other great sites in the San Diego area. 

WOW, look at all these other things I can do down there.  Things_to_Do_in_San_Diego 

Really looking forward to finally meeting some of you that I feel like I have known for so long already.  It'll be a blast for sure!

RainCamp is one of the most important events for any agent to attend. The wealth of information and useful tips you walk out with is amazing. I am still just getting to following through with all of the suggestions from RainCamp Dallas several months ago.  Don't miss the opportunity to walk out a better agent than when you came in.

Hey Chris - capacity is NOT 2859, but lets see what happens!  :-O

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 10 years ago

Brad, DEFINTELY would be there, but we will be in Nashville that week.   But I will look for other venues and hopefully attend one before the end of the year!  Have fun in SUNNY (today) San Diego!  ~  Susan Laxson

When are you coming to the Atlanta area?  We need help!

Posted by Patsy Overton (Patsy Overton Interiors, Atlanta, Georgia) over 10 years ago

Brad.. Just one question about this.. have you booked a room large enough to hold the capacity of 2,859 people.. just in case all of them show up?

Posted by Valerie Osterhoudt, ABR, Cromwell, CT Real Estate ~ 860.883.8889 (Johnson Real Estate, Inc.) over 10 years ago

I've been told that you will be sharing slightly different stuff than was shared in Los Angeles. Is that true?

Posted by Melissa Zavala, Broker, Escondido Real Estate, San Diego County (Broadpoint Properties) over 10 years ago

Hi Brad... after last Friday's festivities in Michigan it might be a big assumption that Bob is coming back so soon!

Posted by Steve Shatsky over 10 years ago

Brad - I expect it will be another stellar event. After all, CA has some terrific bloggers, and I bet there will be some tremendous bloggers from Nevada and Arizona, too.

SanDiego is such a great place to have a Raincamp.  I may have to look into airfare.

I am looking forward to attending-- and the weather will be great.

If you are even close to serious about blogging and social media... Sign up, go, run to the event, be a VIP and make sure you bring your laptop and a video camera. Because if you do, you will get so much useful information and the video tape... You can go back and catch all the little things you missed while trying to take all the notes.

Even I was amazed at how much I learned.

Posted by Todd Clark, Principle Broker Oregon (eXp Realty LLC) over 10 years ago

I wish I was there...

I was at RainCamp Seattle for my 14 Year wedding anniversary, and I'll be at RainCamp San Diego on my oldest sons 24th Birthday.  I may just have to fly him in from Texas for all the festivities.  Hmmm.... 

Patsy - Atlanta soon...   :-)

Valerie - one word "Sardines!"  lol

Melissa - that is true, they are all slightly different.

Steve - We missed Bob, and Bob misses us!!  :-O

Todd - I didn't think you could learn anything else, thanks for the endorsement, and thanks for being on the panel in Portland.

Thanks everyone for your comments and all your support, I have a feeling that there's no room or venue in San Diego that is or will be ready for the likes of the ActiveRain crowd, we are a unique and wiley bunch!  lol~

San Diego is a great place I wish I could make it.  When are you coming to Northern California again?

My first Rain Camp!  I can't wait.  I'll be searching you out.

I'm going to my second Rain Camp and bringing my broker.  He's not on Active Rain, but I think he's tired of me nagging.  I caught him in a week moment and bought his ticket before he changed his mind.

If you are thinking about coming, COME!!!!!!!!!!!!  Quit thinking about it.  It will change your business.

Rain Camp isn't coming to Apple Valley......I'm going to them.

OK San Diego, the Challenge is out!  When Brad came to Vancouver / Portland for Raincamp he got to go away with some awesome Hair-Bender Coffee (stuff you won't find at Starbucks!).  See if you can beat that, as Brad has been tasked to report on all the great regional Coffee he comes across.

Sounds like a huge party taking place in San Diego

Posted by Roland Woodworth, eXp Realty (eXp Realty) over 10 years ago

I'm with Patsy #16 - RainCamp needs to come to the South - like Atlanta or Nashville. 

Posted by Rhonda Burgess, Moving to Nashville TN Real Estate Specialist (Southern Living Realty Partners) over 10 years ago

San Diego RainCamp sounds like it will be a lot of fun for those who can attend.

Posted by FN LN over 10 years ago


Russel will be there for sure. He's always bitching that it's never in San Diego.

Posted by Terry Chenier (Homelife Glenayre Realty) over 10 years ago

If you got that many to show up, I would cancel my family vacation and come network from here in Idaho!   What about scheduling one in New Orleans while people are there for NAR's meeting in November?

Posted by Jim Paulson, Owner,Broker (Progressive Realty (Boise Idaho) over 10 years ago

Good Morning Brad, When you were last in in San Diego, we met for the first time. We had a great event that and I would expect that this one will be even more special. As I mentioned to staff, I am scheduled to be back East. I think that has been resolved so don't be surprised if you see there. :-)

Posted by William Johnson, Retired Real Estate Professional (Retired) over 10 years ago

Roland - YEP!!

Rhonda - would love to come to both, I'd bring my guitar to Nashville....

Terry - we'll see...  lol~

- that's not a bad idea.  :-)

William - would love to see you again, hope you can make it.

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 10 years ago

Great event!  I've been writing like crazy ever since.  Great shot, she actually looks like she's paying attention.


Posted by Kryste Adams, Bend, Oregon Real Estate (RE/MAX Key Properties - Luxury Homes, Golf Course Homes) over 10 years ago

I'm in with Todd on this one... if you do anything for your real estate career this year, head to Raincamp. Yes, bring your laptop, your video recorder, take pictures, write notes... It's a vitally important contemporary conversation... It's about now. Just Go....

Posted by Rene Fabre, Marketing in the Digital Age (First American Title) over 10 years ago

Brad ~ I am so jealous of all these rain-camps but none near us.  I can't wait for Atlanta.  I have heard soon all year can you give us a glimmer of when so we can at least get excited?  I am begging here can you

Have fun in San Diego it is a great place to visit.

Hi June - I wish I could give you an answer but I never know until it's booked and confirmed. Kerrie might be the one to check with, she is in charge of setting up the details of these events and might know more than I do about coming to your location.
