ActiveRain Q&A: Become a Reality TV Star

Services for Real Estate Pros with Suplari, Inc.

QuestionHave you ever visited ActiveRain Q&A?  ActiveRain has great SEO juice, particularly around "real estate questions."

And you never know who you will meet on the ActiveRain Q&A.   Many use ActiveRain Q&A as a way to engage with local home buyers & sellers (generate leads).  It is also a grat networking tool to meet other real estate professionals.

In December 2012, the following question appeared:

ActiveRain Q&A

ActiveRain's own Greg Nino responded.  And to everyone's surprise, Greg is a finalist for the show now (3 months and five interviews later).  If the show gets picked up by a network, we may see Greg working the "redneck"  real estate beat.

Congrats Greg!  Do ActiveRain and ActiveRain Q&A proud.  Greg posted the below video about ActiveRain Q&A.  

Take Home Lessons:

1) Pay attention to ActiveRain Q&A.  It takes about a minute a day to scan the new questions.  You get a notification in your account for new questions in your city or state.

2) Network in ActiveRain.  You may miss a question, but someone may refer you as a great resource to help a consumer or another real estate professional.


 (Imagine that mug on TV every week!  I guess there is a market for anything :)

Congrats to Greg - Really didn't know that like luxury homes, golf properties, etc., that there was Red Neck properties. Although this will be good exposure, it's not one I would want to be associated with as the term is demeaning to a large part of our population. But I guess we have a lot of that these days.
