It's been said , "You are judged by the company you keep."
If that is true, then I am in the right place here on Active Rain. Last week I was very fortunate to recieve a lead because of my participation on Active Rain and directly from my "ASSOCIATION" with Karla Davis, a home staging professional.
My new customer's sister, who lives in the Seattle Area was on Active Rain reading staging blogs and clicked on Karla's associations tab and found me, she read my posts and told her brother who lives in Deltona, Florida to call me about selling his home. The rest is history.
I've read and commented on plenty of "featured" posts about Active Rain Success, always wanting to one day be one those people who receive business through their blog. Now that I've had a small taste of blogging success, I'm completely exhilirated as to how social networking can bring the Power of Association to life.
In today's ever changing world of real estate, you have to move beyond "conventional" marketing and find ways to differentiate yourself from everyone else, I fully believe that blogging can be the vehicle that takes you there.
The last 10 months I have learned more about how to use social networking to build my business than I ever imagined I would the day I created my profile on Active Rain. I've met new friends through Active Rain and I've gained a competitive edge over much of the competition, with innovative marketing ideas and techniques I've learned right here on the pages of Active Rain.
Thank you Active Rain! My thank you includes each an every member who has made this place... THE PLACE to be in real estate.
My new goal is to add a MEMBER TO MY ASSOCIATION ROSTER each week and really get to know them, participate in their blog and increase my power through my ASSOCIATION with them...
