What is so great about the activerain network?

Services for Real Estate Pros with 777S INC (Videos by Vegas Bob)

I have been reading and commenting to members blogs at activerain and I am still trying to understand why activerain is so popular.

My husband spends hours at activerain and I always ask him "why do you spend so much time at activerain"?

He always tells me that it brings him leads and creates google juice. What is google juice? I am real new to this activerain stuff and it may be some time before I understand it better.

What's not great about it. Google juice gives you the stuff you need to rank at the top of a google search which leads to leads and closings. There are tons of great information to grow your knowledge in the business on here, plus a place to vent or talk with people of like minds. Stay around awhile you will see.

I don't think there is anyone better equipped to explain this than VB. See if you can spend a bit more time with him.

Are you serious???? What's not great about it? The answer to your question is another blog post in the making.,..if someone else doesn't get to it first.

But let me at least elaborate on why your husband is so enthralled by this site.

Opportunities to learn about anything real estate. Connecting with other individuals who share the same vision, goals, and passion about real estate. Picking up tips, tools, and techniques to improve one's business. Referral partnerships. Using the internet to drive business to you. Again, adequately addressing this will require some more words than will fit into a comment...

Hi Nu Nu, VB is here, looking for his fans . . . so maybe this is a good time to track him down for the low down. Hey, I'm a matchmaker, part of being an agent.

Nu Nu, this may be  dumb questions but gotta' ask them:

1.  Who is your husband?  Everyone else may know but I don't... since he spends hours on Active Rain, he probably can list a few things that's so great about AR.

2. Fill out your profile etc.. and you may discover on your own what's wonderful about AR... an incomplete profile hurts.. a profile full of "you" may bring you clients, referrals and business.. I checked yours:

About Us:Use this section to write about yourself - don't be shy - Why should a buyer or seller want to work with you? Do you have any certifications and qualifications? What sets you apart from other agents/loan officers?

Areas of ExpertiseUse this section to write about your specific areas of expertise. Do you specialize in first time buyers - listing high end homes - etc. Are there specific market area's that you specialize in? The more you write about your area's of expertise the more knowledgeable you'll sound to a potential buyer or seller.

TestimonialsDo you have any good testimonials that clients have provided you in the past? Be sure to add them here.

Your profile has not been filled out.. to fully take advantage of AR.. fill out the profile. 

Google Juice:  Stuff flowing through Google like liquid gold.. it will bring you buiness if you

1.. fill out your profile.

2.  post hyper local posts

3. connect with other agents in a way that wil bring you referrals from them.

So glad that you are here... wishing you the best in 2010...

Nu Nu,  Welcome to ActiveRain.  There are many things that I think are great about ActiveRain.  But let me mention a few that are special to me.  I have met several wonderful people because of ActiveRain.  One is your husband,  in fact I have talked with him several times on the phone as well as having exchanged comments through ActiveRain.  Today, when I saw your name and photo, I recognized you because of Vegas Bob.  I had even learned of the terrible problems that you are having trying to bring your daughter to this country.  And Bob and I are working on referrals to increase our real estate business.  Another friend that I have found through ActiveRain is Judi Barrett, who just left a comment for you.  I really enjoy the friendships and networking that can occur on this website.

Thank you members and Judi you have some good points and I will track down the VB person and question him more. Robert always mentions to me the wonders of Activerain but I wanted other opinions on this matter.

Gary, thank you for your concerns and I really do miss our daughter and continue to wonder why she is not allowed to come to America after all these years.
