OK....I'm there....FINALLY THE MONKEY IS OFF MY BACK. I'm real. I really am a part of Active Rain.
I guess that I've always had my eyes set on the 300,000 point number ever since joining Active Rain two and 1/2 years ago. My story is simple. I'm a net neophyte who was dragged into Active Rain kicking and screaming. I was told that this was the wave of the future. I was told that it was a great way to get your name out on the net. I relented and moved forward in stupidity and angst as I struggled to learn BLOGGIN 101.
Eight months later I received my first referral. Well.....to shorten a drawl, it's been two and 1/2 years and I just received my 43 referral from the rain. Let' snot forget that I've been able to give out a number of referrals to other lenders as well as other realtors.
HTML is an abbreviation for ..... "what you talking about Willis?"
SEO....I just learned about 4 months ago that it's Search Engine Optimization (I thought it was something ot do with real estate...kinda lika a CMA).
Social Networking....isn't that done at a bar or a Chamber of Commerce mixer?
Either way....it's for those who are serious. If you're serious it's a great place to be. The rain's not an add on...it really is part of a serious business plan. But if you're serious...then you'll find that your success means that you can have fun playing in the rain too.
