activerain and member plugs: How I "Do" ActiveRain by Bill Roberts - 05/11/16 12:11 PM
I have been following Bill Roberts for many years at the activerain network and this blog is full of great names from the Activerain network ;o)
How I "do" ActiveRain. I start my day by opening my AR blog. I allocate about
two hours to this activity EVERY day.
First, I answer all comments to my blog posts. This is  very important.
It isn't just about being couteous, but it is GOOD BUSINESS. People
want to know that you are interested in what they have to say to you.
Second, I check all the comments I've made to other's posts. I … (17 comments)

activerain and member plugs: Winning Over The Naysayers - 02/24/16 03:29 AM
What a great blog by Amanda Davidson and this young lady has really come a long way within the ActiveRain network.
I have been following Amanda ever since she first joined the ActiveRain network and I have also noticed Amanda has been selling quite a few homes.
 
"You Go Girl"
Winning Over The Naysayers
BoomTown has challenged us to write about our most common or most annoying objection we receive online. I’ve enjoyed reading the posts and get a positive feeling after seeing how many objections Rainer’s have overcome. Winning over the naysayers can be done and it’s a big feeling of … (11 comments)

activerain and member plugs: Who really wants more business at ActiveRain? - 02/19/16 08:00 AM
Who really wants more business at ActiveRain?
 
Are there any ActiveRain members out there that could use more business, more clients, more money?
Robert Vegas Bob Swetz has been brainstorming on how to generate more leads and clients for himself and his friends & associates at ActiveRain.
VB has finally come up with a great way to do both and thought about this idea several years ago.
And now once again after several years, this idea popped into the brain of Robert Swetz.
 
It will take some time to master and many days and months to post blogs with URLs, information, etc.
 
Please stayed tuned and I … (23 comments)

activerain and member plugs: Get more Exposure at ActiveRain by Posting to 5 different Groups - 01/21/16 02:27 AM
Get more Exposure at ActiveRain by Posting to 5 different Groups
 
So often I see "Newbies" and other ActiveRain members blogging and writing posts to only 1 group or no group at all!
The ActiveRain platform allows members to post to 5 different groups, so this being said, it makes more sense to use 5 groups vs none.
 
I moderate all these groups down below and roll through them every other week featuring the ones that I like. So if you would really like to get to know Robert Swetz aka Vegas Bob/Alaska Bob, this would be a great way to do this.

Get to know Laura Cerrano by Robert Swetz
 
When I first joined the ActiveRain network in 2008, I had the privilege of becoming friends with Laura's mother Carole Provenzale.
And since Carole went to Heaven I have become very close friends with Laura Cerrano. And if you don't know Laura at ActiveRain, you are really missing out. Laura is a wonderful, kind, loving human being and I picked out this special photograph to post for Laura that I took in Myanmar (South East Asia) in 2010.
This ones for you Laura and I will be calling you soon … (14 comments)

activerain and member plugs: Why are so many Active Rain Members Confused about Reblogging ? - 12/08/15 09:47 AM
Here is a great post by Michael J. Perry and a (No-Brainer) on re-blogging other members material!
 
And when I first started reading this, I learned some facts I never knew and I know quite a few AR members that re-blog because of their busy schedules, etc.
 
     One of the unique features of Active Rain is Reblogging . The ability to add all ready written
quality CONTENT to your own Blog (and therefore to your READERSHIP). When new members
are first introduced to it, they must rid themselves of all of the baggage of the past. In Active Rain,
Reblogging is not Plagiarism … (11 comments)

activerain and member plugs: Why does Activerain close the curtain when I post a great blog? - 10/16/15 02:41 AM
Seems like every time I start writing a great post, the Activerain network closes the curtain on Vegas Bob/Alaska ;o(
 
And with 8 years at AR coming up in Jan of 2016, 4507 total blogs and only 21 featured blogs it's quite frustrating.
 
So even if AR posts that they will be closing the curtain, could they please call or text Vegas Bob and let him know?
 
VB is a very busy man ... Thanks ;o)

activerain and member plugs: Having Great MLS Pictures Should Not Give You An Unfair Advantage - 08/29/15 01:58 PM

 
This is such a great post by Sharon Tara, and I couldn't agree more about the terrible photos on MLS of homes across the nation.
 
Maybe what Robert Swetz should do is set up appointments across the nation with his hundreds of Activerain friends and associates and take photos of their listings for MLS.
 
Great photos can make such a difference and sometimes really sell a home, instead of photos like the one above.
The photo of the One Log Home looks OK on the outside, but what does the inside look like?
I've been a Home Stager in New Hampshire for many years … (7 comments)

Before I get started on How to make a quick $50,000 dollars at Activerain, let me ask you a question!

activerain and member plugs: Robert Swetz continues to brag about Activerain - 08/13/15 12:30 PM
Whenever Robert Swetz finds himself in conversation with family, friends and clients, he still brags about the Activerain network.
In fact whenever people are talking about states and cities across the United States and Canada, Robert always mentions his associates and friends connected to the Activerain network.
And if Robert ever comes across people talking about cities and states across the U.S., he asks them in they have a Realtor working with them.
 
The Activerain network is by far the largest group of persons connected to Real Estate, and Robert will continue to mention all of his associates and friends connected to the Activerain network.

activerain and member plugs: SAVE A TREE ... Stop handing unwanted Business Cards Out - 08/02/15 02:23 AM
Are Business Cards a waste of Money???
 
I would have to say that handing out Business Cards to other agents at conventions, group meetings, etc are a waste of money.
 
Robert 'Vegas Bob" Swetz has been a member of many groups like LeTip International, round table events and more.
And for agents to give large groups of their Business Cards to members of the groups is a total waste of money.
In fact over the years, I personally think Business Cards period are a waste of money.
 
Here is a post that a Jennifer wrote and some Activerain members came onto her post leaving (NEGATIVE) comments.

activerain and member plugs: It is like a "Ghost Town" at the Activerain network ;o( - 05/16/15 06:36 AM
Robert "Vegas Bob" Swetz has been a member of the Aciverain network since January of 2008.
 
Over this long period of time Vegas Bob has accumulated  hundreds of friends and associates at the AR network.
 
So where is everyone? ;o(
 
Where did everyone go?
 
It's like a "Ghost Town" around here ...
 
I am wondering if I should spend less time posting blogs and leaving comments with the quietness around here.
 
Vegas Bob is very disappointed with the activity of some members around here.
 
And wonder if I should spend less time around the Activerain network???

activerain and member plugs: Has the LIKE Button at Activerain created less comments? - 05/14/15 12:35 PM

 
I remember a long time ago with the Activerain network first introduced the LIKE Button.
 
It was quite different for Activerain and kind of a copycat to Facebook.
I use the LIKE Button quite often and I am sure there are many other AR members that use it also, but along with using the LIKE Button I also leave comments.
 
I think that many AR members that are busy and or in a hurry may just click on the LIKE Button, then to actually leave a comment.
 
What are your feelings on the LIKE Button?
Do you think that it creates less comments from AR members?

Here are just a handful of the many groups at Activerain that Robert (Vegas Bob) Swetz moderates himself! Robert Swetz has more groups at Activerain then any other member and always finds time to (Feature), comment and reply to most comments left in these groups.
The main reason that Robert (Vegas Bob) Swetz formed all these group is because when he first joined Certain Groups were deleting his posts from their groups. This bothered Robert so bad that he started forming his own.
Please note: Robert Swetz has never deleted … (6 comments)
