What do we want from you?
ActiveRain has a Rainmaker Membership Program. This gives new members an all-access pass to the most popular component of ActiveRain, our 2 million monthly consumer visitors.
Rainmakers can post content directly to the public on ActiveRain & Localism, have those posts indexed by the search engines, and utilize anOutside ActiveBlog with a unique domain name. So we want our current members thinking about how to engage other real estate professionals to get started with a Rainmaker account.
