OOPS...What to Do When You Can’t Access ActiveRain.
It’s Monday morning and you’re ready to go. Post, then do a quick check for comments on ActiveRain. You have your coffee in hand then oops!
It’s not the end of the world, and it’s not the only time this has happened.
In the big scheme of things, it’s not all that important.
Servers have issues no matter the site, and the crew here is excellent about doing their best to fix whatever’s broken behind the infamous curtain.
So what can you do if you can’t access ActiveRain?
First, find out if it’s the whole site, a few servers, or you.
1. There are Facebook groups you can join to see if others are also having issues accessing the site. One group is ActiveRain and there’s another called ActiveRain Peeps.
2.Text a fellow member or an ActiveRain Ambassador.
3.Contact the ActiveRain support staff
4. Restart your computer...had to throw that it because everyone always wants you to do that if you are having issues.
5.Delete your cookies. You can grab some cookies to eat while you do this as well.
And what if it’s not you but the site?
1.If you’re really diligent, start writing your marketing or monthly stats posts.
2.Still need your ActiveRain fix? Use this time to pick up the phone and contact a fellow member...maybe someone you’d not spoken to in a while, or someone you’ve wanted to call but just haven’t.
3.Work on other marketing projects you have on your To Do list.
4. Get out! Go enjoy the fresh air...experience life. ActiveRain will still be here.
