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

NARdiGras in New Orleans - Come Get A Free 60 Second Video

It's that time of year once again.  We're packing up and getting ready to head out to New Orleans for the Annual NAR Convention, ActiveRain RainCamp, and REBarCamp.  I might even get lucky and make it to the Earth, Wind, and Fire concert.  WOW, what an action packed week this is going to be. 

Are you going?  If these aren't enough great reasons to attend this year, then maybe this will be an added incentive to get you there.  I'm hoping you'll at least come by and see me at our booth.  Here's why...

A Free Offer to Zillow Premier Agents Attending NARdiGras

Agents attending the NARdiGras 2010 event in New Orleans are most certainly going to be hearing about the power of video in their Internet marketing and Branding strategies.  We'd like to do something special and unique for our Premier Agents at NARdiGras this year: Help you shoot a free 60 second video!


Zillow has partnered with Yahoo! Real Estate and vscreen to offer you the opportunity and chance to shoot a complimentary 60-second video. Once the video is created and produced, you can include it on your Zillow Profile, ActiveRain Blog, Website or anywhere else you see fit.  Adding video to your online profiles is a great way to personalize your brand and separate yourself from the competition.

Our free video offer will be available to the first 200 Premier Agents who sign up at the Zillow Booth (Booth #645) and will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.  It's just one way of saying THANK YOU for your business, while also offering a tool and service that will enhance yours! Come one, come all, but come early and sign up.

See you all in New Orleans! Remember, we're at the Zillow Booth #645

Sorry I am not going to be there.  I will be trying hard to make it next year.  Maybe they will let you come to some Rain Camps next year.

Hi Brad - You are going to have a great week in NOLA with so many activities and people to see.  Have a lot of fun!

Brad, sorry I am going to miss this and also miss seeing you....I hope to hear all about the convention from the attendees.

Okay, so are YOU going to be there, Brad?  I'm rooming with Missy and Elizabeth CRG for the week--taking in REBar Camp, RainCamp and NAR--the trifecta!  

One word of advice--get some scripts ready or interview questions for the agents to use!  I had an interview a few months back and they told me to tell them something about myself!  That's a hard topic to discuss and when you're put in the spotlight, it's difficult to come out with something--at least it is for me--my mind goes completely blank!  LOL

Oh, I'm SOOO hoping to hear that you'll be there!  I'm arriving on Wednesday afternoon and leaving Sunday night.  So, if you're there, give me a ring--we'll  have to have a hurricane and some crawfish together!!

I will be there with bells on!  Looking forward to attending my very first Raincamp, and of course, NAR...And I definitely will make it to the Earth, Wind & Fire Concert!  Throw in the fact that it all takes place in New Orleans...I am one happy girl!  Safe travels to everyone!

I arrived today from Florida. Looking forward to running into some ActiveRainers in the next few days!  Maybe we should have an AR Lounge or meeting point... just a thought if not for this year, maybe for next.

That is so awesome.  I really wish I could cut away and go.  Plus New Orleans is such a blast.  Went last year and had a fabulous time deciding where to get my next oyster fix.
