Assembling The Collective Wisdom From ActiveRain Members
ActiveRain contains a wealth of shared practical knowledge on real estate, mortgage lending, staging, marketing, social media, and much more. Members invest their time to write posts, ask questions, respond to comments, and comment on the posts and questions of others.
A short time later, the post or question drops off the roll as fresh posts and questions replace them. The insight and wisdom on the subject gets buried and difficult to easily find again. The time and effort invested and hard-earned knowledge freely shared gets "lost" in the sheer volume of content.
The Collective ActiveRain Wisdom About Open Houses
An index or content library doesn't exist on ActiveRain yet. To breathe new life into older quality posts and questions, I've started by assembling an assortment of posts and questions covering open houses. The content is separated into two categories - posts and questions. Titles are in alphabetical order with links to the post. The author is mentioned with a link to his or her profile page.
