The Power of ActiveRain for Referrals

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.

I always look for an "active' activerainer first when referring, always.

Mike Frazier I do too, or at least check to see if they are still doing business.   Some are blogging here, but not doing business.

Hi Joan,
The referral network here is amazing. I've had good luck referring clients to outside markets through ActiveRain.

Me too Carol Williams and even once when there wasn't an agent, I called someone else that was close enough, they knew someone.  It all worked out perfectly.

Hi Joan- ActiveRain is an excellent community for referrals especially if you interact with the other members.

HI Joan Cox - I do think this is a powerful piece of the ActiveRain pie.  I can feel very comfortable referring a client to someone that I have interacted with on the Rain.  YOu know how they market and if they would be a good fit for a client.

Hello Joan - the "Rain" can be quite powerful.   You prove that to be true.  Over and over.

ActiveRain is such a great network and when I have a referral for a different state I always look to my friends in the Rain.

Good morning, Joan... it's always easier to refer to someone you "know" as opposed to someone who is a bio on the internet.

Sheri, I agree, we get to see a glimpse of who they are.
