ActiveRain has always been about sharing. Whether it be sharing great ideas that we have about how to market our businesses, or just sharing in each other's lives, there is a penchant for sharing that is engrained in our culture.
So now it's time to share the love.
I recently wrote about some of the differentiating factors we see for the new RealEstate.com. In addition to the five things I talk about in there, we have some really creative and smart people managing the social media and marketing campaigns for RealEstate.com. It's been a lot of fun to bounce ideas around with them to see how we can bring value to the real estate community with the launch of the new RealEstate.com and certainly as we move forward from launch.
With that in mind, we are introducing the RealEstate.com Real Estate Professional of the Week and asking our amazing community here at ActiveRain to introduce us to some of your peers who are doing cool things in their business as it relates to how they are marketing their real estate business or how they are making a difference in their community.
What is the exact criteria for being selected RealEstate.com Real Estate Professional of the Week? Glad you asked..........We want to keep it pretty wide open because there are so many real estate professionals doing really innovative and positive things around the country. Here are a couple of criteria that we came up with, but the general idea is to allow you to submit entries for just about anyone that is doing something unique and different in your market.
- We are looking for full time professionals, so we ask that the nominee has completed (or participated in) at least 8 transactions in the last 12 months.
- Be a proven leader in innovative marketing techniques or have a really cool story that makes you proud to have them in our industry.
The idea is that we want to share stories of real estate professionals that are making a difference or who are doing innovative things to drive results. I realize these two things could be completely different, but as I said above, we want to find great professionals and share their stories. Whether those are stories of brilliant marketing ideas that have allowed them to stand out in their market or maybe it's tales of amazing humanity that make you proud to have this person associated with our industry, we want to hear about them.
Can you nominate yourself? Only if you fit the mold of what I've been writing about. Can you nominate someone that is not a real estate agent? Yes. They just need to be in the industry.
In order to submit your nomination, head over to the RealEstate.com Facebook page and look for the app near the top of the page that says 'WIN! Go Now'. There is a short submission form there that you can fill out. Each week, as we select that week's awesome example of what it means to be a real estate professional, we will be contacting those selected in advance and asking them a few questions about their story. We will then share the winners each week on our Facebook page as well as on the RealEstate.com blog.
While you are there, we'd love if you'd 'like' the RealEstate.com Facebook page as well but that's not a requirement for submitting an outstanding real estate professional to be recognized.
