Active Rain Encourages Active Participation

Rain Camp Bob StewartPrior to joining Active Rain, I was unaware of the word "Weltanschauung." How clever it was of the founders to use a German term to call our attention to the guiding principles they created for the organization.

 

Active Rain encourages each of us to go beyond the posting of information and create valuable business and personal relationships within the community.  The point system is a clever catalyst to encourage members to interact through posts and comments.  Once relationships are established, it's more about relationships than points.

 

Active Rain is simply the best place to locate information on real estate related topics. This is by design, not by accident. From the beginning, this dynamic platform was designed as a community for real estate professionals to share of information, business practices, experiences, and last but not least, opinions. There is no limit to the variety of opinions shared by the 300,000+ members!

 

Comments following posts ignite lively conversations among those interested in or passionate about a given topic. Interaction is what this community is about. It's the opportunity for all real estate related professionals to come together and share their knowledge and experience. Every day there is something new to be learned on Active Rain that can be used in our business and personal lives. The diversity of our vast network of professionals provides us with a fountain of information 365 days of the year!

I have read and totally agree that interaction is what the AR Community is about and that it goes beyond Points, as Relationships are what makes 'Our World Go Round' - well said and thank you Sharon Parisi

Endre, I agree. We have actual detailed conversations with each other, unlike FB.

Susan, Active Rain is one of the most well thought out platforms I have encountered in real estate.  The founders knew how to get people writing, posting, and interacting.

Allie, the founders definitely understood the real estate community.  They were also smart and creative in their approach to recruiting and maintaining members.

I think they did good back in the creation of this site. Yes it has had changes but generally the intent and focus has remained the same.

Debbie Reynolds, I agree.  I enjoyed reading "How Did You Get My Name?" in the January/February 2016 issue of  REALTOR® Magazine.   Congratulations on the well deserved article in "Commentary!"

Life itself also encourages active participation so much in the littlest ways and the biggest ways and everything in between!

I often wonder how people get my name in these kind of ways. It can be kind of universal.

Sharon, very well said.  I think I'd find the place a little on the boring side if we didn't have the level of participation that we do on Active Rain.    

I hope that you have a great weekend.
