Jane, after four years of paying for the upgraded RAINMAKER account it looks like I will finally have a closing due to being found on Active Rain.  I have had a couple of near misses, but it does work.  On many of our posts for listings I will do a "FLAGSHIP" post that is very detailed with lots of pictures.  Anyone who has interest, especially buyer's agents, I just email them the Flagship post so they will have a much more detailed and comprehensive source than the MLS sheet.

I never paid, but my blog does bring in the business.

It increased exposure for your blogs which does bring more business. Become active in the rain and for every 100,000 points the fee goes down $10 until you hit 500,000 and then your upgrade is FREE. Cant beat that reason to active and build your business while doing it.

Yes.  It's more than paid for itself in referrals, it makes the phone ring because when done right, consumers will find you, and if you never even closed a deal from it, for the price, I'd say it's the best ROI on education you can get.

Yes; it's the way to reach the general public. Sellers love the fact that I will be blogging about their homes; potential buyers see the posts and consider me the local expert; news stations have found my posts and contacted me for comments. My recommendation: do it!

Absolutely yes. Most of my posts are written to the public and get ranked on Google. That can't happen if you are Members Only. I get calls from buyers looking in areas and also have had sellers search for me on the web and find me all over because of my ActiveRain posts.

A friend of mine accepted my New Years challenge to be more active, get in motion and tone up / slim down.

The florescent running shoes, styl'n outfit, tunes to run by, shades...THE WORKS.

After the debut....never reappeared. Bought the shirt didn't run the race.

The florescent running shoes, styl'n outfit, tunes to run by, shades...The Works did not help her in achieving her goal.

Will 'raining' help you? If you run the race it will. If you are a spectator, it will not.
