"RAIN, RAIN, RAIN....I DON'T MIND.

Usually I’m not one that likes to get wet, but hanging out in the elements here is like a breath of fresh air. You’ll find answers to your questions, experts when you need them or newcomers you can mentor. You’ll laugh, you’ll learn, you’ll connect. And what’s more, with each drop of rain, an idea grows as you relate, share, commiserate. When it pours, you’ve reached that pinnacle of success, where you’ve made or received a referral, gotten a lead, or closed a deal. No wonder we like hanging out in the Rain. Active Rain and it’s members form the perfect umbrella."

"After registering with ActiveRain and inputting my profile I was reading on how to increase my rankings with SEO. Then, Chris Potter from ActivedRain called. What! Was Chris reading my mind? Chris told me about discounts from the ActiveRain University on how I could increase my SEO rankings and lower my costs by 1% for the ActiveRain upgrade. Lowering fees is very important to me, so I paid the fee and gained 1,000 extra points. I am now a Rainmaker. Bonus! If that is not success story, I am not sure what it."

"At the Los Angeles RainCamp I attended in June of this year, I was most excited about learning how to rank on the first page of Google. I dutifully entered my listings in the Ventura Keys, which is the area I work most. And sure enough I went up in the Google rank without a whole lot of other effort. I got hooked on blogging because I love points. But it kind of grew on me. As I started reading other posts and getting into the community, it became more than points and rank. I now really enjoy how much I can learn and share with this wonderful group of real estate people. Thank you Active Rain for providing us this platform."

"I discovered Active Rain back in 2008, foolishly I did nothing about it until March of 2010 when I 'dug into it' in earnest, and became an Active Rain 'rain maker'. Five years in real estate had left me puzzled about how to effectively market myself as an agent and my ideals and ideas to the public. We all agree, the new frontier is the world wide web. But how to gain a relevant foot hold in this vast realm was an on going challenge. UNTIL ACTIVE RAIN. The genious of building a volume of 'findable' online content is now working for me. Calls are coming in. Clients are saying they have read 'my positive online content'. AHH AT LAST! Effective, positive, reasonable, and do-able all come together here. Thanks Active Rain."

Anything you need to know about real estate can be found on Active Rain (and often you'll even have differing perspectives to choose from!) From SEO to listing presentations, from business card design to the best new digital cameras, from virtual weddings to redneck counteroffers (haha)...every day for me since joining has been constant growth.
