ActiveRain Seattle RainCamp | Tuesday Takeways | Things You Missed (but we didn't because we are in attendance!)

Reblogger Richard Willard
Real Estate Agent with Asset Realty Group

Moving across the State of Washington?  If so, I have some great referral partners, like The Lane Real Estate Team I met today at the Raincamp 2011 at Bell Harbor Conference Center on Elliot Bay in Seattle.  They have a great understanding of what it takes to have a solid real estate practice.

Ok, I'll be the first to admit the following points will seem a bit random, but the points are some takeaways from Tuesday's ActiveRain RainCamp that I find valuable. I've posted Monday morning's before the break and after the break takeaways, as well as Monday afternoon's takeaways as well. Enjoy...

  • Optimize your ActiveRain signature link with your keywords to provide a link back to your ActiveRain profile with your main keywords.
  • The meta description (in search results) is pulled from the first sentence of your ActiveRain blog, and occasionally, the last sentence in the blog entry.
  • Make blog entries timeless. In other words, write the blog entry so the content is relevant 2 years from now.
  • 2 really good ActiveRain University classes tomorrow. Go here to register.
  • Takes 1 closed transaction to cover the annual ActiveRain Rainmaker fee!
  • You need to limit the amount of time devoted to social media - use it as a tool, not a lifestyle.
  • Flavors.me provides accessibility to you for your clients and associates.
  • SocialMention.com provides a resource for finding what folks are discussing on a topic you input. Receive free daily email alerts of your brand, company, CEO, marketing campaign, or on a developing news story, a competitor, or the latest on a celebrity.
  • Your true worth is determined by how much more you GIVE in value than you TAKE in payment.
  • How to unsuck your business:1 be there (show up), 2 be accessible, 3 be responsive, 4 be attentive (listen), 5 be givers, and 6 be valuable.
  • "Your true worth is determined by how much more you GIVE in value than you TAKE in payment."
  • It's a beautiful day today, have you blogged about it: http://youtu.be/Hzgzim5m7oU
  • Blog about restaurants (or other reviews) then copy the post over to Yelp! for additional exposure.
  • Remember old school real estate farming? Well, do the same but with your blog.
  • Debe Maxwell's market reports are a good example of great market reports.
  • My favorite blogging topic suggested: Steps to Selling a Home (checklists)
  • Bob Stewart says blogged local events are the highest grossing traffic generators on ActiveRain.
  • When re-blogging at ActiveRain, post, the edit, then change the title to make the re-blogged blog more relevant to your area niche.
  • Set up Hit Router and Listing Referrals in your ActiveRain profile.
  • Want all those cool fonts, colors, sizes, you see folks using at ActiveRain, try Firefox' Scribefire. Or, http://www.online-html-editor.org/
  • Wikimedia Commons ~ A database of 10,391,904 freely usable media files to which anyone can contribute.

For anyone who has not attended a RainCamp, we couldn't recommend RainCamp anymore than saying if RainCamp Seattle were held tomorrow (again) we would be here!  :-)
