“Getting Points The Honest Way”
ActiveRain has strict standards. All organizations have standards that the members are expected to abide by. To see these rules, go to the Community Guidelines. ActiveRain calls them guidelines but they are to be followed. Anyone violating the rules can be shut down and in some cases, never allowed to join again.
I took this following statement directly off the ActiveRain Community website. “Please take these rules seriously. Don't try to look for loopholes; instead, take them to heart and respect the spirit in which they were created.” These are strong words and all members must abide by them or our community’s reputation will be tarnished and destroyed.
Goals of ActiveRain:
1. This organization’s main purpose is for members to use it as a learning tool to further their business and become more creative.
2. Another goal is for all of us to successful sell real estate and stabilize neighborhoods.
3. To make lasting relationships with other professionals across the country
4. Lastly, to just have fun.
Two types of accounts:
1. Free ActiveRain membership
2. Rainmaker membership
When I first started I had a free account and commented lightly but never posted. After becoming a Rainmaker, I started blogging daily, taking photos and writing articles. To me, this was more rewarding and has given me a lot of self worth and happiness. I had to upgrade to have my picture posted and to have an outside blog. These were two very important features for me. I have never regretted my decision plus I think it was a good career move.
Ways to gain points:
1. Posting on your Blog.
2. Commenting on other member’s Posts.
3. Adding Links and Quality to your Posts.
4. Monthly Contests.
5. Reporting Spam.
6. Selected Featured Posts.
7. Sending invitations to join/ Getting Acceptance.
Members earn points as a way for them to be competitive and continually come back to ActiveRain daily to interact with others.
If you are a member, use this organization’s site honestly and ethically. Just remember, you can decide which road to choose but I think if you choose the Rainmaker account and publish yourself honestly, you will succeed, have self worth, a great reputation, plus good friends and colleagues.
If you are not a member yet, try it out for free and I think you will see how rewarding it will be to you and your career.
