RainCamp Dallas - 04:00 hours - Niki Parekh shares recent survey results

Services for Real Estate Pros with Happy Grasshopper

What Niki Parekh has learned in his last month at Active Rain:

You may have participated in the survey they recently ran, here are some results from the questions they asked:

  1. Who are the customers?
    50 to 60 years old, 5-10 years of real estate experience
    Believe in the power of Social Media
    DIY - Pioneers
    Tech Savvy, not EXPERT
  2. What does AR do well?
    Agent Referrals/Relationships
  3. What does AR need to improve?
  4. What does ActiveRain mean to you?
    Support with Building a Business

"Long-term success is 100% aligned with willingness to refer others!"  -- AR users are extrememy willing to refer others to AR. Another great way to get referrals is to utilize a referral marketing or relationship marketing service. People are more willing to refer someone they know than someone they don't. Email marketing services are a great way to stay in front of your audience and help them get to know you and refer you business.


I am so happy to be part of this community and look forward to seeing how Niki's new direction makes it grow.
