The ActiveRain RainMaker - It's More Than Just A Membership!

 

The Real Estate Industry has had a pretty rough ride these past few years and many Industry Professionals that remain are desperately trying to find new and creative ways to survive.  Many are turning to ActiveRain because they have heard and seen that this is where they can learn how to use the Internet and Blogging to their advantage, and turn around their business.

What do ActiveRain members get as Rainmakers?

 

What are the "Benefits" of a RainMaker Membership?

Many in our community have posted articles about their success and ROI (return on investment) from their RainMaker Blogs.  We have seen countless testimonials from ActiveRain members who have experienced first hand the results and business that gets generated solely from their ActiveRain Blogs.  Members share their "Real Life" stories of how effective Blogging on AR can grow your referral business, consumer business, and relationships within the network and within your local community and neighborhoods.

Here's what some have to say:

"When I first started on AR, I got many friendly e-mails and comments.  I think this gives AR a personal touch.  AR does work. I signed up for Rainmaker last month and will be writing a contract for a buyer who contacted me through one of my posts."  Vanna Siackhasone

"I have gotten several clients and some agent referrals directly from AR and continue to learn from the posts of others, hoping that I can share whatever I can too."  Susan Neal

"I have learned so very much from these wonderful people on AR! Best real estate site on the Internet, and I am happy to be a part of AR!" Ginger Moore

"In May 2007, I started walking in the Active Rain (ok, maybe crawling) and by the end of the year we had made tens of thousands of Washingtons directly from blogging leads."  Erion Shehaj

"AR has helped my business tremendously to the tune of 11 closings to date."  David Serle

"ActiveRain has put me on the map.  I receive at least THREE calls each week, just because my name comes up on the first page of a Google Search.  These buyers already know about me before they call.  Those that want to make their business happen, will become rainmakers, and they will find the way to be successful."   Don Bradbury

You are very welcome. Rebecca, I spoke with a few people today as well. There is so much they could be doing with this. I am certainly having a lot of fun with my three outside blogs. One is personal and the other two are team blogs. :-)

LOL @ JL. Trying to get my friends and relatives up in this camp. I'm having mad fun. They should do more than read me. They have businesses without websites. We have soooo  gotta change that (LMAO). ;-)
