Maybe it's better
So, I went to a meetup hosted by Kevin Tolbert of Keller Williams the other day, at PABBQ in Port St Lucie, and I got revigorated in regards to Active Rain.
The same day I wrote two articles, and posted them for the first time in a little under a year.
So what happened, you may be wondering?
Well, first of all, one of the postings "let it rain" was featured, and thank you very much for that, but something else happened that was very interesting.
Let me start with a question.
When was the last time you googled yourself?
don't you want to see what everyone else, including your clients (or perspective clients) see ,when they google your name?
do you want to know what happened when I googled "Jay Beckingham?"
I know you're just dieing to find out.
Well right there on the top of the list was
my Active Rain profile.
it had jumped Linkedin, it had jumped facebook, as a matter of fact it had jumped everything else, that had attached itself to my name.
in one day?
google has been carrying on a love affair with Active Rain for as long as I can remember
the Rain pours google juice.
I have to ask, what does your profile look like? is it up to date?
because if you are active on the rain I don't think you can stop this from happening
so, if your profile is not up to snuff, well that's your calling card anyway, whether you like it or not.
luckily for me, someone had added a new feature, since I had last been on the Rain, and let me say, sincerely I may add
thank you, thank you, thank you
what feature? well the one that pops up and says
"your profile is incomplete", and then offers a guided tour to cure that situation
I took the tour, and I'm glad I did
and I have a suggestion for all the Rainers
you should too.
this active rain profile is an incredibly strong tool, it is one of your major calling cards, show it some respect. If you treat it right it will return the favor, because I'm not kidding you. If you use it right
Your profile is as good as GOLD!
