I recently started to do some work with a new real estate client, Marta Anderson of Del Mar Realty in Guysborough County, Nova Scotia.
Now that I'm fully addicted to ActiveRain, one of the first things I talked about with Marta is how great the AR community was for meeting like-minded real estate professionals, sharing her experiences and learning from others.
I warned her that she might become addicted too, but that it was a manageable problem when recognized, and could be easily justified as a business time expense because it would be helping her brokerage.
Marta was also interested in learning about new ways to connect with potential clients - and especially those from outside Nova Scotia. I mentioned some of the success stories I'd read about on ActiveRain, and how I'd met many new friends, colleagues and even some clients on the site - and probably 99% of them have been from outside our little corner of the East Coast of Canada.
Over the next few months we'll be working together on her new web site, as well as some cool ways to highlight her community as a relocation destination and connect with clients from across Canada, the United States and even farther abroad.
And part of that will be accomplished with AR Localism - because I've seen it work for others on the site.
And if Marta finds she's losing time (and sleep) to ActiveRain... we'll, all due respect, I've got my own AR addiction to worry about.
So please join me in Welcoming New ActiveRainer Marta Anderson! (say Hi in her comments)
Have fun, Marta! You've been warned...
