"My Active Rain Success Story is not a story, but stories. Every and every single day of the year when prospects Google me or any of my farming communities, or any STREET in my farming communities, either ACTIVE RAIN or LOCALISM shows up. This is the most powerful tool to attain high Google rankings than any source I have used to date. I am contacted every week by prospects that have heard of who I am and have Google my name and have contacted me through ACTIVE RAIN. Thank you ACTIVE RAIN....not for one story, but for stories each and every day."

"After so many years, I have finally started to take this ActiveRain website seriously! I joined in late 2007 and posted very little--then it hit me! What can set me apart from all of my co-workers and competitors??? It was so obvious that I got right into blogging on a regular basis. I am suddenly appearing on the first page of Google and sometimes even at the top of the page! Thank you Active Rain for the opportunities that abound here!!!"

"I have two so far, the first was an email I got from a fried who I grew up with in Ireland who I haven't spoken to in fifteen years... it was sent through ActiveRain, that's when I became a Rainmaker. The next was when I wrote a blog about "homes for sale in Clayton NC for under $165,000" and obviously if you put that in a search it will come up but just "homes for sale in Clayton NC" was bringing it up on ActiveRain, on Localism, on my outside blog. It was really exciting and if I ever figure out how to do it consistently I'll be rich."
CJ Johnson (Directors Realty)
"I had a client walk in to my real estate office and ask for some information. He worked for a large video game company in Los Angeles and was looking of a home in my tiny town of Tehachapi to get away from it all. As it turned out we worked together for several months while he cleaned ups some credit issues. He did use my services and purchsed a home. Later he told me that after that first day he met me he went home and checked me out on Active Rain. He liked that I was on AR blogging as he was in the technology industry and it showed that I was a little on the techy side. I made a sale and a friend that day. Thanks AR."

"There is a definite advantage to being a member of the Active Rain family. Peer socialization is one of the greatest learning tools that helps me to be one of the most informed agents available. I learn about things on Active Rain before I ever hear about them on the news or elsewhere.....Active Rain is also an avenue for me to get information out to the general public. Sometimes, the news just doesn’t tell things from the heart and soul of an individual. ......."

"The majority of the buyer I work with have found me through my ActiveRain blog. Most are not from my local area, they are out of area buyers seeking a knowledgeable local expert-which I am. Many of these buyers have purchased properties as a result of integrated technology which allows me to show them properties in the convenience of their own homes and ALL have been satisfied with their purchases. As a An ActiveRain Rainmaker, and Founder of the Realtor® Group here on Active, the goal is to educate, and share information with both consumers and working professionals and help them achieve their goals....."
Let it Rain people.....Let it Rain!!!!
