5,000 Points Could Be Yours!

Services for Real Estate Pros with ActiveRain, Community Manager

I have Google alerts set up for everything ActiveRain and actually come across quite a few of your posts I may have missed otherwise.  Today I came across one from Florida Realtors® News and Events talking about our latest Predictions by the Pros and thought, how cool!  This one from the Dallas Morning News did as well so it got me thinking....I bet all the 'Rainers could get picked up by their favorite news outlet.  I know it happens all the time already; some of you have even been asked to guest blog for your your local papers as well as other opportunities.

The Real Estate Recovery or Not infographic is making the rounds. People like to see information displayed this way and since you're the professionals they're interested to see the pros and cons of our survey results.  Some will disagree entirely and others nod their heads in agreement. 

I'm willing to give anyone 5,000 points if you can get a news outlet to pick up on the Real Estate Recovery or Not Infographic.



5000 points for any news outlet to mention the Real Estate Recovery or Not post, information or infographic.
While I urge you to spread it everywhere, the 5K is a one time shot
You must write a post about your news success with a link included to the news outlet where we can find the mention; then include a link to your blog post in the comments on this post.
Contest ends midnight March 31st.

Not only will this be good for AR (check out why straight from Nikesh's mouth), for you and your results, but also because you never know what kind of eyes you may get in front of.  Pat Kennedy has a gig with the Washington Post.  Craig Schiller was even picked up by NBC...twice!  Good luck to you all who choose to participate!!

I hope you get noticed for the Article!  Good luck on that. I'm on the East Coast and sales in MD have picked up.  Still last year I did 17 rentals and 9 sales.  I was told that was a good year, compared to most.  It was one of the worst for me.  

I'm not the busiest but it's picking up for me.  I'll imbed the code on my FB page!

This wasn't so easy.  It took me about 10 submissions to get one to pick it up.  Go figure.  They still like to bad news more than the good news.

Dear Kerrie -

Well, just like Kevin - I am still trying - no interest so far since Atlanta was not mentioned. Only a few days to go. Enjoyed talking to the papers though ...

Have a happy day -

I just wanted to stop by and say what an HONOR it was working with the Great Kerrie today on my first ever National Webinar.  

Thank you Kerrie for you insight and guidance and I had a blast.  And I didn't get nervous until that counter started approaching 600 folks but by that point you and Kris had me in the zone and I am never at a shortness of words.

Hello Kerrie, well I'm a little late to this party, but that doesn't mean I won't take advantage of this great idea.  I'll be checking out those links you left in your comment #52.

I am quoted in the Gaithersburg section.  This is a positive and very comprehensive article on the real estate market in the area.

When working with news reporters on major articles, it can take some time before publication.  In this case, I was interviewed in March and the article appeared in the May issue of the Washingtonian magazine.
