Not Getting Any Referrals from ActiveRain?
The other day I received a call from a member looking for someone at ActiveRain. (that’s another story!)
The member wanted to know how they could get referrals from this community.
They are a relatively new member. After asking a few questions, I could see why there were no referrals headed their way.
Want referrals from ActiveRain?
When we refer someone to another professional, we need to know that we are placing our referral in good hands.
How are we to know who you are and if you are someone we would feel comfortable referring someone to?
The best way is through your blog.
Members are good about getting to know new members and they stop to read your posts. Granted, listings and market reports may not be the best way to show us who you are but it’s a start.
But there are other types of posts that will peel back the layers of your onion and let us know who you are.
Comment on other’s posts.
This is when we really get to know you. Word to the wise...say what you feel in your own words. Avoid the infamous “drive-by” comment such as Thanks for sharing. Have a good day.
And the icing on the cake…
Take advantage of some of the monthly ActiveRain Contests and Challenges.
For example, there are 3 excellent contests/challenges this month that will allow us to learn more about you. For example...Tell us what your strengths and weaknesses are; Let us know how you balance work and your personal life; or show us how you’ve learned to enhance your photos for work.
The key word is Interact.
You’ll benefit in ways that will pleasantly surprise you.
