ActiveRain Reaches 200,000 Members

Real Estate Technology with ActiveRain


It is with great pride and much humility that we announce ActiveRain has reached 200,000 members!

As of Monday January 17th, 2011 our membership number has gone over the 200,000 mark. The journey to get to this point wouldn't have been possible without the amazing support of our members. We've always been big dreamers, but nowhere in our wildest dreams did we imagine the impact this community would have on our own lives and on the lives, and businesses, of the members who choose to participate here.

It's our members that have made ActiveRain the foremost place on the internet to get information about the real estate industry. It's our members that have made ActiveRain the greatest community of professionals on the internet today. It's our members that have chosen to passionately share their love for the industry from which they derive a living. It's our members who have freely shared with one and other the secrets to their success. It's our member that have chosen to educate and connect with millions of consumers a month.

Much like many of you, we've traveled to the far corners of the internet, and never have we seen a more caring and engaged group of people online. The support and kindness extended by our members has literally changed the way we view our industry. The members of this community are a special breed of professional and we will never be able to thank you enough for helping us achieve this milestone.

Our journey to get to 200,000 members has been all about our members!

We are going to be hosting a little party on Twitter at the hashtag #AR200K. We'll be tweeting special messages under that hashtag and giving away some prizes for our membership. If you haven't taken the time to figure out Twitter, it may be worth looking into today so you can follow along at the hashtag #AR200K. We will be giving away ActiveRain shirts, some community sponsorships, and a few free Rainmaker accounts.

In addition to winning something cool via Twitter, we'd also like to extend a special one day invitation to our members to get a free community sponsorship. You'll have to follow the directions exactly, but they are pretty simple:

1. Send an email to
2. In the email include a link to the community you would like to sponsor for free. Obviously it can't be previously sponsored by someone else (and make sure it's a community please, and not a link to a city page as those can not be sponsored)
3. Include your user name.
4. In the title line of the email use: 200K Community Sponsorship

This is a one day only promotion and emails will be accepted at that email address until 11:59pm Pacific Time, Monday January 17th. Your community will be added to your account by Friday, January 21st. That day you should check the 'my community sponsorships' link on the left hand side of your 'my home' page. (Is not applicable to communities you already sponsor). If two people ask for the same community, preference will be given to the first email received.

Thank you so much everyone and we look forward to our next 200,000 members and hope that you will continue to help us spread the word about ActiveRain.

Hello Bob,

              Had a problem with finding community pages so I wrote an ActiveRain post on it.

For everyone that took advantage of the opportunity to get a free community sponsorship on ActiveRain (and there were a TON of you, I think more than commented on this post) here is a tutorial video of how to take advantage of your community sponsorship once it is added to your account. I have about half of them done so far. Once I add it to your account, I will respond to your email and let you know it's ready. At that point, you'll want to watch this tutorial to make sure you take full advantage of the sponsorship:

I can't help feeling sometime in the near future we will be having another celebration and I will be saying WOW!, when I joined Active Rain there were only 200,000 members.

Great job, looking forward to an even brighter future.

Like many others, I didn't get a chance to read the memo in time (Mondays are always so busy).  Maybe we need a way to push these great limited time specials to our cell phones as a text message?  Oh well, I can't really complain about not getting something I didn't pay for. (grin)  Congrats on 200K, that sounds like a great goal for me this year, $200K.

I had been watching the number since late last year wondering when the clock would turn over to 200000!


I would be interested to know how many are real estate agents, and what percentage of the total real estate agents in the country are on AR.

Congratulations....great accomplishment!  As a fairly new member I do wonder how you got this message across about the free community membership. I read about it on a few blogs and errorneously thought that you were giving it to ALL members so kept waiting to see it show up in my home page. Then tonight I finally found this blog. Not complaining...just really curious and learning.
