Real Estate Technology with ActiveRain

RainCamp Building a 5 Star Business on a 1 Star Budget

Practical Advice from Agents in the Field

Here they are! The recordings from RainCamp. What a great 2 hours of content rich information from 3 fantastic presenters. 2 of these folks are in the trenches every day selling real estate and they came to RainCamp to share about one particular aspect of their business. We've broken the presentations up and given you an idea of what you can get from each presentation below. We hope you enjoy!


ActiveRain RainCamp Offer

Ben Kinney, REALTOR®, Keller Williams, Bellingham WA

Listings to Leads

Ben is constantly thinking of the next opportunity to grow his business. One thing Ben learned early in his career is that every listing he takes is an opportunity to generate a bunch of new prospects for his business. Ben fully expects that every listing taken by his team will result in 20 new prospects for his business. In this RainCamp session Ben talks about how to get more listings and how to market yourself and your listings for exposure. He also talks about how to price a home. Listen to his presentation to make sure you aren't missing out on the next big opportunity in your market.

IMSD RainCamp Offer

Greg Harrelson, REALTOR®, Century 21, Myrtle Beach SC

Converting Your Database into Commissions

Greg, the prospecting monster, shares some of the prospecting methods he uses to land his next client. Greg shares the power of your database and more precisely, what kind of value can you deliver to people in your database to turn them into an advocate for your business. We'd all love more referrals and people directly contacting us to help them with their real estate needs. Greg will show us how to do that.

Market Leader RainCamp Offer

Bob Stewart, Community Evangelist, ActiveRain

Using Your Content to Convert Prospects and Leads to Clients

In Bob's RainCamp session he focused on additional ways to use the content from your blog to convert people from your sphere, prospects and leads into additional business. Too many us write our blog posts then sit back and wait for Google to index the content and for some searcher to find us online. Is there a better way to get your content in the hands of the people that need it most? Yes. Bob shares an idea on that.

I did listen to Raincamp a few days ago and as always enjoyed Ben Kinney. He always has something meaningful to say and I always take away a new nuggett.
