Happy Community Manager Appreciation Day at ActiveRain

Services for Real Estate Pros with Suplari, Inc.

Bob & Kerrie

Yes, Virginia, there is a Community Manager Appreciation Day!  The 4th Monday of January each year is officially Community Manager Appreciation Day.  This is the day when online communities show appreciation for their community managers by sending them sincere notes and tweets using the hashtags #CMAD. 

Here at ActiveRain, Market Leader, & IMSD we are blessed with GREAT community managers who manage the many, many needs of our real estate community.  

Kerrie Greenhalgh @kerrielil - The tireless and thankless community manager at ActiveRain who deals with every member request, spam complaint, and catfish crisis with a smile.  Kerrie has had to mediate more tricky situations than Harry Houdini.  If you have ever received an anonymous gift from ActiveRain, these are all Kerrie, based on her finger on the pulse of our ActiveRain community.  Thank you Kerrie for all you do every day for the community.  You rock.  You make me laugh, whenever you are not making fun of me.

Bob Stewart @activebob - Our ActiveRain Chief Evangelist Bob Stewart leads the charge on SEO, blogging and social media education.  Bob is employee number one at ActiveRain and has been the on the forefront of social media and SEO.  I think of Bob as the high priest of ActiveRain, especially when it comes to interpreting the Weltanschauung.  Bob has taught me more about community management, patience, and Apple products than anyone I know!  Thank you Bob for all you have taught me and teach me everyday!

Eric Proulx @ericmproulx - Eric is a social media and Google plus rock star.  If you don't follow him on ActiveRain, Google Plus or Twitter, start now.  Eric is the youngest member of the team and has one of the deepest and broadest technical knowledge of the changes in social media, particularly of Google and Google Plus.  Whenever I have a problem or question, I turn to Eric who is always available to help.  Eric, thank you for being ever vigilant across ALL social media and helping me and the entire company learn about the ever expanding world of social media.  AND thank you for helping me consolidate my Google Plus profiles... what a pain.

Chad Hyams @chadhyams - Last but certainly not least is our IMSD guru Chad Hyams.  Chad is a master of real estate, Internet lead generation, and lead management.  Chad runs many of the IMSD webinars and lends a helping hand on ActiveRain and across Market Leader.  There are few real estate coaches & trainers as talented and dedicated as Chad.  Chad, thank you for inspiring me to work harder and smarter every day!

I may be a day late on this, but I'd like to add my thanks to all of you guys. AR wouldn't be the wonderful treasure that it is if you weren't digging deep and working with a sense of commitment and care - your contributions go far beyond your job descriptions and I'm deeply grateful for your efforts - it has made a big difference to us over the last couple of years.
