Does Making It To The Top 20 Mean Anything on Active Rain???

Does making it to the Top 20 mean anything on Active Rain???


I recently as of tonight made it to the Top 20 in all of Palm Beach County. I do seem to spend a lot of time here and feel dedicated for  the opportunity to share my thoughts. I have to say the points and the ranking have got me hooked to keep pace and often feel challenged to keep adding to the cause. As I look to who is in front of me, they seem to be all active on a daily basis. Where do you rank in your county and do you challenge yourself?

Winston, what a great idea for a post!  I try to be aware of how many Realtors have a higher ranking in Dallas.

I expect to ride down I 95 and see the bill board with the top twenty.

Convert it to sales and it means something. 

Points, hard to spend in Neimann Marcus.

Winston -- actually, when you get near the top in your city/county/state -- you get your name and picture listed on the right side of the screen for that area, when people use the state/county/city search function.  Thus, the higher you are, the easier you are to find.  That should help bring some additional business at some time.  To see what this looks like see:

Have a fantastic week, and Congratulations on getting into the top 20 in your market!

In answer to your question, I am #5 in my city/ #7 in my county, and working to make #55 in state.

It was all about the points for me in the beginning. I have been on AR for 13 months. AR has opened up a wealth of referral opportunities. I am now referring out twice as much business as I used too.

Congrats Winston for making the top 20 in PB county. I hope AR has brought in some business for you & some good relationships in the referral network.

Thank you all for stopping by. Early on you slowly discover new things that happen in your ranking like Steve said. The biggest thing so far is the exposure to others, and I'm hopeful some business will come from it as well. I would like to hear from others how long it took for any business to actually be generated from being a member here.

I find that having a numeric goal makes it easier to focus on what you need to do daily.  The thing I like about forcing yourself to accumulate pints is that in the process you learn sooooo much!

In ActiveRain we all learn every day. I agree with Laura.
