As a rookie real estate agent, I am well aware of how difficult it is to stand out from the rest. The overload of information is daunting too; as many have established success for different reasons via different avenues of marketing. Some with print, others with online presence and so on.
I also like to make informed decisions and "research" is my middle name. Not really, but that's what I've been told. So, as I researched the dozens of website platforms for real estate agents I kept coming across a common denominator: ActiveRain.com. There was no denying this site gets serious "Google juice" as many have told me.
While I played around with the idea of upgrading to "Rainmaker" and dishing out more money monthly, I listened to the other lovely members here and realized soon enough blogging all day to members only wasn't going to get me very far.
It's been 3 days and all I can say is "Wow". In 3 days my posts and profile appear in Google on Page 1 or 2, depending upon the search terms, of course. Nonetheless. I am quite blown away and very impressed with the results in such a short period. I am currently #9 in my service area of Kendall, FL. and love a challenge (that's my other middle name). I enjoy blogging anyway but now that I see with my own eyes the incredible impact made here, I hope to be #1 soon!
Sincere thanks for the incredible community here, and all of your advice, positive energy and support. I look forward to many fun and encouraging interactions here with my ActiveRain fam.
Love and peace!
