Ask An Ambassador- Why Do I Love ActiveRain?

ActiveRain allows new members to sign up as nonpaying members (Rainers) without a paid account but only getting limited services. That a good way that is to get your feet wet in the blogging world and to benefit from the knowledge that is shared each day by this terrific group of professionals. Some people stay in this status for years while others move to become Rainmakers so they can receive all the benefits of full membership. Either one is a great reason to love having choices and to be a part of the community.


  • I love making my posts Public so I can get the SEO advantage of blogging. The posts about my listings, neighborhoods and market trends show my expertise to other agents and to consumers. This builds my credibility.


  • This network has given me a voice and path to grow my business. The posts that are made public are ranked and last forever. These causes my phone to ring and brings in business about the niches and specialties I write about.


  • The relationships with the members develop over time and are invaluable. This is my go-to network for referrals and to collaborate with agents on difficult situations when expertise is needed. This is priceless.

  • There are fun posts. Some days you just need a bright spot and this is where
    I can come and find some inspiration, have a good laugh or read a good story.

  • The wealth of experience and knowledge is deep. If you are looking for new ideas to use in your marketing, how to do an open house or to negotiate an offer, ask and you will receive. There is almost nothing other members will not help you with.

  • This network allows me to share my knowledge and feel appreciated. That is a good feeling and members are quick to lavish on the praise.

  • Blogging helps work out some frustrations. There have been situations where I could write a post about a bad situation and before I published it, I felt better. It served as an emotional outlet, therapy of sorts and there was no need to publish so I just deleted it.

  • I have learned so much about other markets and areas. This helps me become a better agent in my area and hone my skills.

  • The friendships here are real and super fun especially when we can get together at meetups when traveling or get together with other members in our immediate areas. These relationships last. 


  • For each 100,000 of points you earn your monthly fee drops. When you reach the half million (500,000 points) your membership is free going forward. I was able to do that in less than 3 years. Now members can do it in about a year if they really put their minds to it. You can even do it without a paid membership but you have lost the exposure of making your posts public in the meantime.

From the minute I found it.  In the first days I was here I found an amazing agent who gave me some contract info for a higher up at Countrywide that helped save a deal.  I love everything about the rain, the people, the learning, the business it has and continues to generate.  Like you, I feel it's been a great path that has has/continues to grow my business.

Debbie, I love AR too for the same reasons. I have received referrals from AR. However, it is so much more than that. It's always a great place for inspiration, encouragement, and knowledge!

I'm with you - I love it here. As a hermit, working from home, this is my social circle. Living where I do I may not ever meet any of my AR friends, but I treasure each and every one of you just the same.

Oh - and yes, I do think it's good for business!

I may be one of the longest running paid memberships ever! I quit blogging a few times so my points weren't adding up. I expect I'll finally reach the free status by the end of this year, and honestly I've been here since 2007 or 2008!

I LOVE my friends and acquaintances at AR and the exposure I get from my blog. Yourself included. :)

I'm so lucky to have been here long enough to be grandfathered in from when it used to be completely free. 

Such a wonderful community to be part of...both for business and personal reasons!

Great post as always Debbie!  Sometimes I stray, but I always come back to my friends in the rain.  Love reading posts and catching up with everyone.  It's a great way to also be relevant in your own market.  Read other marketing reports and compare to your own market - some are very similar!
