If you are not a regular blogger or just posting and not interacting, you are missing out on an important piece. By interacting here in the Rain, you get to "know" bloggers even though you may not have met them face-to-face. Maybe even you have picked up the phone to catch up with some.
The ability to have this referral network in ActiveRain can be so powerful. When my clients have asked for an agent referral in ______, I usually know someone there, because of ActiveRain. I sometimes know a few there, and make some calls to narrow it down. I have sent two referrals out to two different states, and both clients are exceptionally happy.
Maybe you cannot find a Rainer in a specific city, but in a neighboring city you do know someone, they may be able to refer you to the right individual for your client. By giving referrals out to those you have interacted with, you know they are reputable agents that will give the customer service and representation to your client they deserve.
Are you looking for more business? Don't pass up on a possible referral through this platform! I met another Rainer years ago, and we still pass referrals back and forth.
