March's Cloudburst of You - 2014

Services for Real Estate Pros with ActiveRain

The tulips have begun to poke out of the ground around town, baseball isn't too far out and girl scout cookies are being enjoyed...spring must be coming!

It's time to spring into action and set up for a very busy season in the real estate world.  The coming months will be bright, especially if you continue to put the work in now.

This is cake, they don't need to be specific or have a certain word count.  If hyperlocal is what gets you the clicks, go for it.  If your listings are getting more traffic, please post!  Check out your Stats page and see what is bringing in the most clicks and emulate that behavior.  Consumer based or member focused, a cup of this and a dash of that.

The jelly to any peanut butter sandwich, the drive home where you catch every green light.  Comments are the extra joys we get out of pumping out these incredible blog posts.  Leave 100 this month and make many Rainer's days!

Call 4 ActiveRain Members
Pick up the phone and say hello.  Relationships are built and real time talk is one of those foundation bricks that lasts forever.  I love talking to Rainers and always hang up with a smile.

Favorite Thing About Spring
Write a post about your favorite thing about spring.  Flowers blooming, Easter, baseball, warmer weather, special holidays of your own...whatever it may be, share it with your AR family.

Daily Affirmations
Stop comparing yourself to others, you will only make yourself miserable.  Lead a happier life by loving yourself.  Each day, while you're brushing your teeth, in the car or taking a walk, tell yourself 3 positive affirmations about you.  Do this every day in an effort to enhance your positive thinking skills.  It may sound silly to some, but this exercise is what makes people successful.

You have the entire month to complete this Cloudburst.  Once you're done, please fill out this form and 2000 points will be yours in early April.

Hi Kerrie, I just finished March's Cloudburst with two days to spare.  I enjoyed giving myself daily affirmations and writing the spring post.  I look forward to April's Cloudburst!

Hi Kerrie, I do like your monthly cloudbursts, so many things to do to make us better bloggers and better rainers.

I had a few things I like about spring, I think this was my favorite, but not sure.

The calls were fun, got more than I needed done but not as many as were on my target list, of course some never answered the phone, hopefully they will call back this week if not too busy.

Affirmations, always a great idea!

15 posts and 100 comments, well that went pretty quick, maybe a larger target next time.


Again, thank you for all the great ideas that you present to help us to Grow!!!!!

Finishing the March Cloudburst was one of my goals this month .. it's only my 2nd time participating. I got sidetracked and brain fried along the way (which doesn't make for great posts) but I did it  Thanks Kerrie!

Kerrie, well, I made it this month with 33 minutes to spare.  We're all so busy.  I loved the phone calls the most!

Hi Kerrie, Is there an April Cloudburst?  I have checked the ActiveRain Contest Group but I did not see one.  Please let me know --  Thanks so much Kerrie and have a great day!

Let it Rain!

Karen - There is no April Cloudburst, we have an abundance of members asking to host contests and I don't want their to be too many so participation falls.  

That's not to say we won't have another Cloudburst but not in the coming months as we've got so many other awesome contests rolling out!

This looks fun.  I am too late for March - but I will try when I see a new one show up. :)
