Success!! It rained for me on Active Rain!

This is a post from Cynthia Grimes that I thought was worth a reblog.  She got her first lead from Active Rain this week and it gives proof that blogging does work!  Kudos to you Cynthia for sticking with it and good luck on your appointment!

Success!!  It Rained for me yesterday on Active Rain! I secured a listing appointment from a lead thru Active Rain!!

Succes, Active Rain, Listing appointment

 Yesterday after a busy day I prepared to make my last email check and below is the email that I found in my inbox!!  A potential seller found me on Active Rain!!  I immediately called the seller and in less than 10 minutes on the phone I have scheduled a listing appointment for March 3rd!!

Blogging works!! Active Rain and its members who share so much are the BEST!!!  Thanks Active Rain and Members! :)

Here is the email from the seller:

Thanks Debbie for re-blogging!!  I have had a few other contacts from Active Rain but this one was quick to convert to an appointment.  I am excited!!  It doesn't matter how many listings I have it is always exciting to get another one and this one is in an area that I am very confident about and I know I can sell it!

Thanks for the repost of success, I get a lot of hits because or A/R but have never followed to see if the leads are a direct hit. I think we all get more than even we realize.
