Active Rain Versus The Other Guys

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Kinard Realty

Lately I have been a die-hard FB user. I have actually received a new listing from using the site and have been very pleased with my results. That being said, I am also very addicted to the games that are available. The problem is the number of hours in a day and the amount of useless information that is available.

Just think if I had spent half of the time I've spent Farming and used that time getting and gathering information on Active Rain where would I be? Just a thought?

I use facebook religiously but do not do the games.  Waste of time and energy.

I too have used FaceBook but not the Games. Hard habit to break but one worth breaking. FaceBook is a great tool but can be a touch addictive.

Only you can answer the question about where your business would be if you farmed more and played Facebook's games less. You are on the right path just be asking the question. You might want to consider joining the Addicted to Active Rain group as an alternative to playing games on Facebook or volunteer in your community to make a difference. Good luck.

I have not used FB as it should be used.  My business is coming from blogging, referrals and web presence.  It seems there is only so much you can do and if other tools are working well is adding a new one going to dilute the results?

I think this site is amazing I can get my listings to the first page of google in the small towns but I have not quit figured out how to get them on in the biggest city here yet.  This is a great learning site too.
