tool and  a kiss in Red

Tools Make Blogs Feel Loved Kissed and Fresh

What tools or systems do I use to make my phone ring ? That is the question . My market reports are what I feel make my phone ring . Now is that considered a tool or system .To me it a a system I have in place . So I will say it is a system I have in place in Active Rain . I joined Active Rain early in 2009  I believe it was in February so I guess you can say this is my anniversary month . I read posts by Jeff Dowler and Gabe Sanders who write detailed market reports . I learned from Bob Stewart , Brad Andersohn  , marti garaughty  and last but certainly not least Ben Kinney .  I was very fortunate to have been grandfathered into Active Rain and attended Rain Camps  .Thank You to all ! This is old news so let's use tools to kiss it up and make it look new and fresh



I was taught to not only do market reports but to use a long tail version . Today it is called a niche .Yes finding a niche is so important . I have done this over the years . It is not something that will work for you over night . So if you are looking for the quick fix let me tell you there are none . I do not believe that not for one minute .It takes hard work and many blogs but it does work .

For example I have been writing about Waterfront Gated Condo Communities Phila Pa . Sometimes I put the zip code in sometimes I do not . Sometimes I put in Bensalem Pa which is the community next to Philly either way I get calls and seem to get indexed by Google .




  • I also use pictures in my posts I use a picture editor called iPiccy to edit my pictures . I want them to look unique have my signature and special size with framing . iPiccy allows you to edit your picture and give whatever effect you choose . If you do not use iPiccy why not try it it is free . You can even make your pictures look like a cartoon if you wish . You can even make it look like a drawing . Change the picture to a Black and white pictures or a sepia color as displayed below . There is so much you can do with  photo editors  Why not take advantage of this amazing tool and use your own pictures and photos in your posts. Pictures should be on the top of your post especially  if you are only using one . Use new ones to keep them looking kissed and fresh black and white photo  bakers bay


  • Last year I also added another tool to my tool box . It is called Biteable . I am using the free version . I am going to purchase this tool as it is the favorite tool in my box . It makes videos you go in and chose different scenarios put them together with music and they email you the video . When you approve it you download it to YouTube or you can just copy the embedded code to your blog . If you are not satisfied with the video make changes and they will resend it . So easy and so professional . Post it everywhere all over Social Media . It certainly gets you noticed . There are companies that sell these little videos on Facebook and will post them for one week for you . You can do it yourself  How did I find the tool ?  With the help of Lynn B. Friedman and her 2016 Jump-start challenge . She is such an amazing lady .   Every year she challenges us to find our personal best . 

To exceed in what we do  To Jump-start the year with new and fresh ideas .



These are the tools I love to use on Active Rain  . Market reports are the most important system I use on Active Rain . Find your Niche . Post local use your tool box
