ActiveRain University Presents Customizing Your ActiveRain Blog

Real Estate Agent with Myrtle Beach Homes Blog

Branding your image is one of the most important aspects of any business.  You need to have an image that depicts you and the business you are involved in.  Many sites require complex steps to customize a theme and make it the way you wish.  ActiveRain offers you a really great option on how to customize your blog to represent your image better.  Unfortunately, very few really master how to accomplish this.

Have you ever seen a blog on ActiveRain that looks like this?

What were they thinking?

I know I surely have.  While this type of theme might be acceptable on this network, it really doesn't convey a professional branding that you would wish to associate with your business.  On Friday March 19th at 11 AM EST (8 AM PST) I will be teaching at ActiveRain University on how to customize your your blog on ActiveRain.  This 1 hour webinar will cover the following:

  • Creating a Custom Header that has Pizazz.
  • Uploading a Header to your ActiveRain Blog & Outside Blog.
  • Customizing your ActiveRain Background to compliment your header.

Now, in case you were wondering why ActiveRain chose me to teach this class, let me show you a few examples of headers I have created in the past for clients:

Custom Header #1

Custom Header #1

Custom Header #3

And here are a few more examples of member blogs that I have customized:

One of my Outside Blogs

Betsy's Blog

Debe's Blog

These are just a few customizations on ActiveRain that I have done for clients in the past.  In this webinar, I will show you step by step how to take your blog customizations to the next level.

Hi Jeremy,

I signed up for your course but had to tend to  a client today--something that couldn't wait. So sorry I misssed your class.  Did you decide if there was going to be some sort of recording? 

Maybe you'll be teaching it again soon?  Or something similar?

Again, my apologies.

I'm much, much more attractive this evening after taking your EXCELLENT class today. Even obtained a Flickr "Creative Commons" - just as you instructed.

Question about crediting that picture.  How/Where?  I put a link on my sidebar with Header Photo Credit but doubt that is the proper way.  Seems to be no way to tag it like I do photos within posts.

Add me to your fan club, Jeremy. I had never customized my inside blog--just did it tonight in about 5 minutes.

I'll be sprucing up both inside and outside blogs over the weekend--still have a ways to go, but like what I've done so far.
