Great post by Steve about what is the power behind Active Rain.

Original content by Steve Shatsky

The Power of Active RainThe Power of Active Rain is faster than the speed of light!  And the light that it outpaces shines brightly to focus attention on those who Blog there.  Proof point: The Power of Active Rain has made me visible to writers for several publications including the Texas REALTOR magazine where I was invited to write an article on Short Sales.  The referrals and attention from agents across Texas is the kind of publicity that would cost more than the average agent's marketing budget would allow.  That's Power!

The Power of Active Rain attracts more attention than Leonard Nimoy at a Star Trek Convention!  Proof Point: The Power of Active Rain has attracted more new clients to my business than any other single element of my marketing program.  Between my Active Rain outside blog and the Google Juice that my blogging has generated, the Power of Active Rain has helped me turn a declining market into a growth opportunity!

The Power of Active Rain keeps me more plugged in than the upcoming Chevy Volt electric Hybrid vehicle!  Proof Point: The Power of Active Rain has helped me build a network of colleagues to whom I have referred business to and who have referred business to me.  Being plugged into the powerful Active Rain community of agents allows me to offer my clients professional representation from an agent who shares my philosophies about the real estate business no matter where they are buying or selling!  The Power of Active Rain might even help me find a Grace Idaho Real Estate Agent for a relocating client!

The Power of Active Rain is more life changing than winning the lottery!  For me, the best part of the Power of Active Rain is the way it brings people together and enriches their lives!  Proof Point: When I think about the friends who I interact with on a daily basis, both nearby and across North America, so many of them are people I would have never met if I had never started blogging on Active Rain.  When I am having a bad day they support me and help me get through it and when I am having a good day, celebrating my successes with them makes them that much more memorable.  Those are real riches!

What's the common thread here?  People.  That's the Power of Active Rain!

Thanks for sharing this Douglas.  Active Rain is quite a powerful forum.  For those of us who have discovered it, it's all positives.
