Featured Member...What does this mean??

By
Real Estate Agent with William RAVEIS Realty

I am a relatively new activerain blogger and my profile stats say that I am a featured member but I am not sure what this means.  Any activerain veterans out there that want to help the rookie?

Looks like you are number 2 in Yorktown Heights - click on your state - your county and then your city. It is based on the points you earn here at AR

I believe that it means that you have more points than anyone else in the town that your profile lists you in.  If you are the only person on Active Rain from that town, then you would be a featured member by default.  If there are ten people in your town on Active Rain, then the top two in point value would be features members.  You are ranked by town, county and state. Check out how many points the top people in your state have and you will be impressed.

Featured member means that you show up as no # 1 or two for your area.  Your goal is to be a featured of your city,  the featured member of your county, then the featured member of the state.  The more points you get the higher you climb in the rankings.  Consumers look at those points.  being a featured member will get you more business.  Keep blogging  and commenting and you will become a featured member.

Being a featured agent is a lot better than being pack in the rear of the crowd.

Congratulations!  If you are a featured member then you have made it to the top of the pile in your area.  For some that is easy and for others in larger metro areas it can be a tough climb.
