ActiveRain RainCamp - Our New Training Program - Starts In Seattle and you're Invited!
This has to be one of the most exciting announcements I've ever had the privilege to post on AR. I remember signing up that "rainy" day back in February of 2007. My first question was, "Where Do I find the Owners Manual for this place?" My next thought was, "How do I get the most out of Social Networking and Blogging here? Does this stuff really work?" OMG! My Journey began that day, and would turn out to be way more than I ever anticipated or expected. We have all watched the AR community grow in more ways than just our membership and business growth, we have seen it change peoples lives and impact the Real Estate Industry.
It's time to take the Network and Community on the Road. We are going to "Rain" in cities all over the Country. It's New, it's Exciting, it's Awesome, and it's called RainCamp. The first one will start in our Corporate backyard, the beautiful City of Seattle. This is a huge turning point for ActiveRain, and also for our members and those who attend.

The "RainCamp" Schedule
Modern Day Real Estate Marketing (9:00a - 9:30a)
Find out where you rank before we kick off the day. How does your social profile rate against your neighbor? How can you expand that presence and create connections that are meaningful in a professional manner? Understanding where we are is the only way to figure out where we need to go.
Meet the Speaker: Bob Stewart
Search Engine Marketing (9:30a - 10:30a)
Advertising is undergoing a radical transformation. As advertising dollars make an exodus from print to online marketing, do you know how to position your advertising budget to get the most impact out of each dollar? As most of your potential clients go online to make purchase decisions, knowing how to target them in the places they reside will be instrumental in ensuring they do business with you.
Meet the Speaker: Ben Kinney
Break (10:15a - 10:30a)
Converting Leads Into Closings (10:30a - 11:30a)
It's one thing to learn how to drive traffic to your site, it's entirely different to actually convert that traffic into a commission. Learn the regiment required to get industry leading conversions with the prospects on your website. There is no reason the leads on your site should be treated like the rest of the industry treats theirs. Resolve to do something different.
Lunch (11:30a - 12:30p)
Real World Social Media Success Stories - PANEL (12:30p - 1:15p)

Panel Moderator: Brad Andersohn
30 Technologies You Don't Know But Should (1:15p - 1:30p)
