Why I Joined ActiveRain and the Amazing Results After Just 3 Days

Real Estate Agent with Opes Real Estate Group 3370985

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!

Hi Lisa,
It is an amazing community.  AR is the best of both worlds.  You're going to get a HUGE professional support group within AR but you want to reach the general public too!   You did the right thing by joining AND upgrading to a Rainmaker account.
