Active Rain Listing Router - Have You Been Checking Up On Your Click Throughs & Credits Lately?

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Alliance 0754296

As soon as this feature was rolled out at the end of October I immediately jumped on the bandwagon to set up my campaigns for my desired market areas and FREE IDX links.

With the beauty of the 2 week free trial that was given to us by Active Rain after the Listng Router was initially introduced there was no absolutely no risk involved and it was a no-brainer on my part not to test this baby out.

For the month of October I had a total of 7 click throughs to the campaigns I had set up and a whopping  $.12 in click credits.  Wow.....this was only for the month of October....I thought to myself this can only get better as times goes on and was anxious to see how my numbers for November would be.

Well, here are my numbers for November as of today.  I've had a total of 9 click
throughs for a total cost of $8.21 but here comes the icing on the cake....drum rollActive Rain Listing Router - Have You Been Checking Up On Your Click Throughs & Credits Lately? please.......I've accumulated $16.26 in listing router credit.  This is just AWESOME to me because if I'm understanding this correctly, those credits are as a result of the visitors who have used the AR Listing Router search interface on my blog to locate listings outside my service area and I now have received this credit to buy clicks from other member’s visitors.

In addition, in checking out my website statistics, I'm experiencing a 20% increase in unique visitors so far for the month of November compared to the whole month of October and have received 5 new IDX registrations this month from buyers searching for homes in my market areas.

I'm sure there are many memebers out there in other markets who are seeing some much stronger numbers than what I am seeing.  I'm just excited to see any type of increase in activity to my website and IDX registrations that will translate into future business.  It all comes down to a numbers game and those who dig in and stick with this in the long term will I have no doubt benefit from the use of the Active Rain Listing Router.

In case you did not have a chance to reiview all of the posts introducing this phenomenal new feature to our Active Rain community, I've included posts written by our own Active Brad, Jeff Corbett  along with posts from some of our members who have contributed their insights about the power of The Listing Router.

It would be wonderful to hear the results that others are seeing and sharing them with the rest of our members.

Thanks, Donna. I didn't even know about this feature. Thanks for providing some references where I can get spun up.

I have $6.72 in what I have paid, and $2.91 in credit... so I guess something is working !  I dont fully understand what it means.  But was smart enough to figure it made sense to set up !  : )

Donna-  I didn't catch your location, when I first commented.  Now I see you're a neighbor, a little way up the Sound.  There's some really scenic boating areas in your neck of the woods water. 

I agree that it will take some time, before the stats for our markets pick up.  That should give us plenty of time to rack up a bunch of credits.

Marilyn - I didn't pay attention either when I left my comment to you.  Howdy neighbor!  There are some terrific scenic boating and beach areas down here.  I just love the shoreline area...it has so much to offer and is quite beautiful no matter what season we're in. 

I've never had an opportunity to visit Westport but know it is quite a beautiful part of Fairfield County.

Excellent Donna!  This is so good to hear.  Since this is all so new, I have been skeptical of what it would bring.  Thank you for the info.

Donna... For some reason I am either intimidated by the listing router (not sure what to do) or it is just one more thing I need to pay for through ActiveRain, and not sure about the actual positive response.  Maybe sometime when we *do* get together (hopefully you are feeling better now), you can show me more about this.  I'm more of a visual person than a *reading* person. 

Congratulation on the feature.. job well done.
