The Judge | Jury | Executioners | What I Like Best About ActiveRain !

Are you excited about 2020?  I am!!  Many of you will spend time thinking about your goals and reducing them to writing. Written goals are another step closer to “executing” them.

I don’t write them. I never did. They’re in my head, and I execute them with “flexibility.”  ActiveRain makes it easy for me. My routine is down to a science, and it’s probably boring for most of you. 

We are listing agents, and listings are found with offline marketing.  I know, you’re sick of reading that, too!!  However, if one more person reads this who was not aware of how listings are found, it’s worth your being bored. Take one for the team!

After I create a postcard or design my next full page newspaper ad, I’ll post both on ActiveRain.  I can always tell if the comment reflects that commenter “blowing smoke.” It doesn’t happen often, but it happens.  When there are only a few comments, that’s a sign, also.

A good review means I don’t need to go back to the drawing board, and for that, I’m always grateful. Those who create marketing pieces and don’t take advantage of this site for reviews are missing an important step.  There’s nothing worse than marketing with a piece that doesn’t do justice to its purpose. If you inspire someone with your creation, that’s a compliment. No two people will market the same. Sharing is good and that means the product is worthy.

Thanks Rainers for all of your support during the year.  The honesty is always appreciated.  

This is just a thought for the moment… or we can call it another gratitude post.

I enjoy reading your posts, especially marketing.  I have printed off a lot of what you post and have used it in my marketing.  What I would like to do is make Active Rain more of a part in my morning routine.  Just a matter of making it a habit!  Keep it up, I'll keep coming back to you!

That's a great idea. I had never thought of using AR as a test trial. I'm posting a new piece on a blog today. Let me know what you think if you have time.

Barbara,

I missed this wonderful post of yours, and as usual you have a great idea here.  For my part, I hesitate to judge or comment on anyone's achievement, because I don't feel I know enough about their marketplace to give a helpful direction.

Once a person is pleased with their website as it happened, they wanted my feedback.  I think that what I would have said would have hurt their feelings and the feeling of the person who created it...so  I opted out for those reasons, I also know that our standards differ and would not want to impose them on someone else.  A

Barbara,

I try to be sincere and kind.  How do you tell someone who wasted their money (my opinion) and the photos on the site on it are out of focus?  It is like someone saying, "do I look fat?" in these jeans?  And they do to me, I find myself reverting to "what do you think?" A
