Two good reason"S" to get a Activerain RainMaker Account NOW!
Most if not all of us here blog to generate home buyer and seller leads and most importantly to increase our real estate business. Just check out the testimonials from many of the Activerain Rainmakers here to know the power of this site.
SMALL AMOUNT: Activerain maker account COSTS LESS THAN POSTCARDS/NEWSLETTERS. It costs $39.95 a month to upgrade to an Activerain Rainmaker. That's less than what some of you spend a week alone at Starbucks. HECK that costs less than what some of you spend at Starbucks everyday. But the price goes down every time you reach a certain point mark. (And once you reach 500,000 points,you no longer have to pay to become a ActiveRain Maker). But it will probably cost you more than that to mail out 500+ postcards a month to apartment complexes and homes. And if your postcards doesn't have a very strong "call to action" message on them,chances are your marketing dollars will just go to waste. And you won't even get the chance to convey your message to potential home buyers and owners/sellers.
SEARCH ENGINE SHELF LIFE: I just made up the word. Unless you have a postcard with a great "call to action" and/or newsletters with some valuable content,postcards and newsletters will only get shelf life for a certain amount of time. But what happens after those postcards/newsletters start collecting dust and they start taking up valuable space in your house? It gets dumped in the trash. But if you have an Activerain Rainmaker Account,gets what? YOUR ACTIVE RAIN BLOGS WILL BE INDEXED IN SEARCH ENGINES FOREVER AS LONG AS YOU HAVE AN ACTIVERAIN RAINMAKER ACCOUNT. HAVING YOUR BLOGS INDEXED IN SEARCH ENGINES WILL IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES TREMENDOUSLY OF BEING FOUND BY POTENTIAL HOME BUYERS AND SELLERS LOOKING FOR A LOCAL REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL IN YOUR AREA WHEN DO A SEARCH ON CERTAIN TOPICS. If there is something that I want you to take away from this blog,it's what I just said. That alone should make everybody who has a regular Activerain account upgrade to an Activerain Rainmaker Account.
SEARCH ENGINE DOMINATION: Now tell me how many companies can not only promise you that they will get your local blogs first page on search engines but do it for a very small fee? As long as my real estate blogs are targeting certain "short tail keywords" and "long tail keywords"-Sorry I am not a SEO-Search Engine Optimization Expert. But if you want to learn about short tail keywords,long tail keywords and SEO,read blogs by Tammy Emineth-She knows her stuff. Most of my Activerain blogs not only end up on first page on Google but they beat out the big three Z,T and R. Even though before this year is out Z and T which by the way owns Activerain.com will merge. Don't believe me? Type in the search engine"Upper Marlboro Md 20774 Real Estate Market Report" or "Upper Marlboro Md 20774 Real Estate Market Report-September 2014" and see where my blog comes up?
Now to please who are using postcards please don't be upset. Heck I still mail postcards to some Expired Listings. I'm not saying don't do it. But if I had a choice to choose only between Blogging and mailing postcards,I'm definitely choosing blogging. Plus not only can you learn from many of the Activerain Superstar bloggers here by reading their blogs but you can also sign up for webinar as well as watch past recorded webinar that will teach you how to write effective blogs to target home buyers and sellers in your local real estate market/neighborhood at Activerain University.
And did you know that whenever you begin typing a blog that if you look on the right side,you will see blogging templates to better write local neighborhood blogs such as Neighborhoods and subdivisions,Market Reports,Local Events and Businesses,Condo Complexes,Listings and Homes for sale. One of the many changes that I have noticed Activerain have made to this blogging website.
So I hope this will get all of you who have a regular account to upgrade to a Activerain Rainmaker Account.
