Active Rain Showed Me a New Way to Roll

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Charlemagne International Properties BRE# 01147470

This post will push me past 300,000 points on Active Rain. I have posted nearly 900 articles and reaped untold benefits including a tiny bit of fame (my real estate blog was voted one of the ten best in Los Angeles by, a tad of community recognition and was tagged as a go-to source for information about the local market.  All good stuff.


The real thrill for me is the increased level of information I can disseminate to my clients and prospective customer base. It still amazes me when an open house attendee tells me my blog or web site is on their "Favorites" page, or when I receive a phone call asking about a particular area of Palos Verdes and they mention they are loyal followers of my Palos Verdes Lifestyle Blog.


For me it is not the points, it is not even the posts, it is the people.  Oh, it's also nice to take checks to the bank.

Norma, that is awesome. You would like the book The New Marketing and PR by David Meerman Scott. I may have the title off a bit, but the author is correct. You are a great example of the effectiveness of today's marketing and building yourself as a brand through good blogging. Congratulations!
