What Does Your Profile Tell Us About You? - 01/20/11 02:54 PM
Many of us don’t like talking about ourselves. We will talk about our kids, our favorite gadget, the football game (and of course SPAM everybody with information about our listings)… but when it comes to writing about ourselves, we sound pretty boring! I was recently asked to write a MeMe, and it made me think about the fact that I have not really shared too many tidbits on my Profile about ME. I'm in the process of changing that - because I think it's important! Activerain gives you enough space to write for a MILE about yourself! I can assure you that when (9 comments)
Use Groups to Maximize Your Activerain Member’s Only Account - 01/18/11 07:37 AM
There are Outside Blogs, Hyper Local Posts and Member’s Only Posts on Activerain. Many people who are new to blogging choose to start with the FREE Member’s Only Account… and I believe there’s value in spending time on Activerain (although personally I would cut out going through the Drive Thru each month to save AR money! #justsayin’)!
So the question is… How Can You Maximize Your Free Member’s Only Account on Activerain? Are You Completing The BOTTOM Portion of Your Activerain Posts? Most of the Member’s Only Posts I see only have maybe a couple of tags words, and then they might (6 comments)
Activerain is fortunate to have people everywhere... if there's a snow storm in Atlanta, you can see pictures, a fire or flood and Activerain has a bird's eye view. Here's a glimpse of what is happening in Tuscon.
Via Mike Jones (SUNSTREET MORTGAGE, LLC): ~ Congress On Your Corner ~ ~ Gabrielle Giffords ~ I haven't been able to blog since Saturday. This evening, though, it became clear to me that Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was doing what all of us, of every political persuasion, want from our representatives, and I want you to share this thought with me. (2 comments)
It’s no surprise that most Americans are looking for ways to save money… especially those of us in the Real Estate business!

Remember that these types of posts are ONLY visible to Activerain Members who are LOGGED IN. So think about your strategy on this site: (5 comments)
Real Estate Agents have for years been shouting Location, Location, Location… with the increased use of mobile technologies… it’s even more important! People today use their cell phone to connect with the internet while they are mobile, and the cell phones are always tracked for location because they rely on cell phone towers to send and receive messages. In other words, your cell phone always knows where it is located on the planet. Here are some ways you can take advantage of GeoLocation: Use a Geolocation based camera, on the disk for your camera, or enable it on your iPhone (thought this (4 comments)
Are You Advertising or Marketing in 2011? - 01/05/11 09:23 AM
In the Real Estate Business we are constantly looking for ways to get more attention for our listings, and to find buyers. We have several choices, we can Advertise… or we can Market. Advertising is out. Viral marketing, where someone else says how great you are, is in. So what IS this “Viral Marketing” and why is “Advertising Out?” Advertising, by definition is the paid, public, non-personal announcement of a persuasive message by an identified sponsor to its existing and potential customers. It’s the Old Fashioned Reader Ad, or Print Ad in the Newspaper… it’s not getting much attention now that (3 comments)
