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

ActiveRain for REALTOR® Hangout

In this REALTOR® Hangout, these 8 individuals share why and how they are active and engaging on ActiveRain. Take a look and listen to some of the ideas and ways they use this network to build relationships nationally, get ideas and share experiences, and how they are growing their business using ActiveRain. 

You may already be using this site thinking that you're getting the most out of your efforts, but then again, what if you're not? I have found from personal experience that just about the time I think I have it all figured out, I listen to a podcast, or watch a video like this, and a plethora of brand new ideas and visions materialize.

ActiveRain most certainly requires YOU to plant the seeds, then weed, water, and fertilize if you ever want to experience any kind of reward and harvest from your efforts here. Just like farming, you're going to have to be "Active" and work the fields to enjoy your crops produced here in the "Rain".

I always enjoy brain storming here on ActiveRain Brad. It might be a storm in my mind and a drizzle to everyone else...

Tracy - be sure to always ask clients specifically where they found you on the web so that you can track your resources and double up on what's working to get you more contacts, appointments, and closings.  :)

A good use of Google + and of course letting agents know Active Rain is a great place to blog.

Can anyone tell me how to get the blog posts that I do on ActiveRain to automatically re-post on my LinkedIn account and my Facebook page? As I recall, it used to be that whatever I posted on my ActiveRain blog showed up on my Facebook page, but it's not anymore. Thanks.

Posted by Peter Nielsen (Marin Realty Experts) over 7 years ago

Hi Peter - there are a few ways to accomplish this, but it depends on what you're trying to ultimately achieve by doing so? I'm in the Bay Area, feel free to give me a call at your convenience and I'll see what I can do to help. 

If nothing else, I can at least send you the tutorials how to do this once we chat. Thanks :)

I know that many member sing the praises of AR, its about the numbers, and I it seems that a lot of members think that AR is the holy grail to success. I for one know that it all comes down to hard work.

Hard work is the key to ANY success, on or off the rain.  :)
