Big Changes for the Blogging and SEO Group - 07/21/07 04:17 PM
I first joined Active Rain a few months ago. I quickly learned that in order to get the most exposure for your blog post, it was important to submit them to different groups. So I joined groups that I thought would be right up my alley. A few that jumped out at me were Blogging and SEO, The Art of Marketing You, Online Marketing, Rainmaking and a few more. I enjoyed reading the various featured posts and even had the privilege of having a few of my own posts featured. Each day I looked forward to seeing some of the spotlight (45 comments)
FSBO or Real Estate Agent… The Conclusion - 07/10/07 09:08 PM
Note: You can read the first post by clicking here. As many of you may know. I recently wrote a post about whether to sell my house FSBO or use an agent. I must confess, although my wife and I have tossed around the idea, we are not selling our home. More importantly, we are not going to sell it FSBO. So why did I write such a controversial post? Why did I risk getting the very people who subscribe to my blog mad at me? There are actually a few reasons… But before I jump too far into this post, (54 comments)
Sell my House FSBO? Convince Me to Use a Real Estate Agent! - 07/08/07 06:40 PM
My wife and I have casually tossed around the idea of selling our home and getting something with a little more space. Every time we begin the “should we move” talk, the same question always comes up. Do we use a Realtor? I have always been one to think “I can do anything if I set my mind to it.” But does it apply in this case? We didn’t use an agent when we purchased the house - but then again our purchase wasn’t the typical real estate transaction. I actually purchased our home on the courthouse steps. It was a (81 comments)
How 30 Minutes Can Land You 300 Visitors in 30 days - 07/04/07 12:39 AM
There are so many great ideas on ActiveRain that it’s hard to find time to implement them all. Because of this, it’s important to always weigh the time commitment against the potential return. For me, this is one of those ideas that is a “No Brainer” on the “Should I Do It” scale. This is mostly because the total time investment is so small compared to the potential traffic boost both short term and long term. Not Another Squidoo Post! I know people have covered Squidoo before. And I am sure your probably thinking. “No, I can’t commit to one (96 comments)
