active rain success: Been gone too long - 02/26/11 04:11 AM
Well I have decided that I have been gone too long.  I went by the active rain booth at the Keller Williams family reunion, and they were trying to sell a guy on getting involved in Active Rain.  I stepped in and showed how I was on Google in quite a few different spots because of Active Rain.  But the guys in the booth didn't know who I was and kind of blew me off.
So I figured I better get back to blogging.  I realized I haven't been blogging too much.  So it's back to the grindstone.  I'm still trying to … (5 comments)

active rain success: New Active Rain blogger - 07/25/09 12:23 AM
Are you a new  Active Rain blogger and unsure of how it works or if it even works.  Well if you are unsure then take a tour of Active rain testimonials / active rain success stories.   This will give you a glimpse of some of the individuals successes.
Some people get quick success on Active Rain.  It took me over six months before it kicked in.  Now I get from 20 to 30 buyer leads a week from the internet.  How much is strictly from Active Rain I don't know.  But I know I have over a hundred different blogs that … (42 comments)

active rain success: What it Active rain all about - 05/26/09 02:36 PM
I remember coming to active rain and seeing 10,000 points and thinking that was an enormous number.  How would I ever get that many.  It seemed so overwhelming.  I would never get that many points.
But over the last year and a half I have been consistently blogging away.  Blogging about anything that comes to mind.  Anything that might help clients.  Free information to any potential buyers and sellers.  I wasn't a rock star.  I'm not a great writer.  I'm not a english major.  But i kept on even when I didn't get many comments.
I blogged for potential clients.  About the … (24 comments)

active rain success: Another milestone in my Active Rain Career - 04/17/09 11:11 PM
I always hear from new bloggers what do I write about?  What if I not a good writer?  What if I have problems writing?  Well let me tell you I'm the same way.
I write compound run on sentences.  I have to re-read my blogs because they don't make sense.  I drop letters off words  "Your becomes you" "sir becomes si".  My sentence of "your home" become you home and spell check doesn't catch that.  And then when spell check does correct it my paragraph is off.  Writing blogs is time consuming and hard for me too.  Some days it takes … (11 comments)

active rain success: 1 year, 4 months, 9 days - 04/05/09 11:22 AM
Yes I have made it to the top of the heap.  Or at least as far up the mountain I can go.  It has been a wonderful trip up now I have to kick it into over drive.  What am I talking about?
I joined Active Rain on December 6, 2007 just over a year ago.  I have done all the things you are supposed to do.  I write my ten posts a week, and my 10 comments a day.  I write for all the contests.  So I get all the points possible.
But the benefit has been getting to know … (5 comments)

active rain success: How would you like to reach 40,000 people a month? - 03/30/09 01:27 AM
Wouldn't you like to put your advertising out to at least 10,000 people a month?  And wouldn't you like to do it cheaply.  So how would you go about it?  Where to spend your money to get those kind of numbers?  I mean after all sooner or later somebody is going to contact you if you are reaching out with a good message and good information.
This is sort of an Active Rain success story.  Why I said 40,000 people a month, that is what my two websites and blogging me are bringing me a month in readership.   This number might be … (10 comments)

active rain success: Whaawhoooooo! - 06/10/08 01:59 PM
Thanks Active Rain and all you great people out there.  I started in December and I am now over a 100,000 points.  I can't say points don't matter to me.  They do.  But what is great is friendships, the knowledge I have gained from being here.  Plus I can't knock the exposure I am getting for me, my websites and my blogs.  I am getting leads daily from the internet.  Some from blogs, some from my websites.  I have been interviewed twice.
Blogging, websites, client contact, internet surfing are all tightly connected.  A realtor needs to do blogging and have a good website.  Thanks … (13 comments)
