Oops… I Totally Forgot About You


No, not YOU.  Today I spoke with Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland and she mentioned oopssomething I’d not thought about in a long while.

 And that was the ActiveRain University.


There was a time when I would “attend” the live webinars on blogging and SEO and there was never a time when I didn’t learn something.


Thinking back, I don’t think I’ve listened to a webinar for at least a year...maybe more.  


Why is that?


It’s not as if I  know everything and am no longer in need of further information.


In all honesty, the old saying “Out of sight, out of mind” is exactly what happened.

So I went there today and prowled around.  

Guess what I found!!  All kinds of information!


If you’re new to the community or need a refresher, there are videos on getting started, including  How to write a blog and How to tag someone in a comment.


There’s a link to recent webinars as well as live events.

Some of the topics covered in the webinars?

Lead Generation

Internet Marketing

Social Media Marketing

Business Building


Did you know that there are podcasts you can listen to as well?  In your own time!  

You can hear podcasts from Margaret Rome, Gayle Rich-Boxman and Melissa Zavala, Debbie Reynolds, Loreena Yeo, and more!


Did I mention that this is all free!!!  

Your only expense will be your time.  


If you’re not sure how to do something around here, then besides going to the Q&A section, or calling an Ambassador (which we always invite you to do) ...consider the ActiveRain University.

HI Mark Loewenberg Like all tools, they won't work on their own.

Kathy, It's one of those, "I know it's out there" things, but I do tend to forget to go over and check them out.

Hi Kathy - There has always been a wealth of good information at ARU (Go ARU!), and we need to do a better job of promoting it. Good post!

Howdy Kathy (:  Thank you for pointing out and sharing the many resources of ActiveRain ~ in one post.  I listened to the Webinar today "Three Different, Powerful, Approaches to Leads..."  Enjoyed the 3 different approaches and was able to align with one approach in particular.

Kathy ARU is one of the best sources for all kinds of great information! I too haven't listened in to many webinars lately but intend to do so this year.  There is always something new to learn!

Kathy the one feature AR has to offer that I never utilized very much was the AR University.  That is a mistake I hope other AR members do not make, and they make time to take advantage of it.

Pretty much everything I needed to know in order to succeed on this platform I learned at A/R University and like you, have completely forgotten about it. Great post!

I LOVE the webinars and any time they pop up in my e-mail box I try to register. Right now my laptop is "compromised" and my poor old Dell Desktop (about 14 years old, 100+ in dog years) couldn't handle the GoTo Webinar on the latest one, so I missed out. God bless Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland for always nudging us! And thank you, Kathy, for mentioning me as one of those "Pod People"!!  Alesha A. Wilson listened to it the other day and she wrote me the most wonderful e-mail as she, too had created her own website, something I mentioned in my podcast. You just never know what you're capable of til you TRY! And AR University gives you endless tools to succeed.
