March 2024 Challenge: It's a Wrap!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with eXp Commercial, Referral Divison RRE-BRO-LIC-75443

Thank you to all who participated in the March Challenge: ActiveRain Zoom Call Challenge. The purpose of the challenge was to encourage more people to attend and participate in the weekly (Tuesday 2pm ET) ActiveRain Zoom calls. As a result of the challenge, we had 12 people attend who had never attended before. We had increased energy, participation, and excitement this past month so thank you to all who took part!

As a reminder, points were going to be awarded as follows:

For those who had NEVER attended an ActiveRain Zoom call previously:

  • Each attendance at Zoom call in March: 400 points
  • Answer a silly question at the first meeting: 50 points
  • Write a post about the first meeting: 600 points

For those who HAVE attended an ActiveRain Zoom call before:

  • For each person (up to 4) you invite to the call: 200 points each
  • For each person (up to 4) who attends the call: 400 points each
  • Please note, that means the most points you could get is 1600.

Now, we had to make some changes to the points available since there was confusion about the rules (mea culpa for not being clear up front!)

So here are the changes:

It became apparent that people who HAD attended ActiveRain Zoom calls previously, thought they would get points for writing a post about our Zoom calls. So we are providing 600 points for any blog previous attendees wrote in the month of March that was related to this challenge.

Also, for people who had never attended before, we neglected to ask about your answer to the silly question. So everyone who was new who attended gets the 50 points.

When you receive your points (sometime in the next few weeks) if you think we made a mistake, please reach out and let me know.

And.... keep participating in the ActiveRain Zoom Calls! Invite people to our calls on a regular basis, volunteer to lead a discussion, and come bring fun and energy to the calls. We appreciate you!

LOVED your challenge and I am happy to say that I FINALLY got the points done! Sorry for the delay. I also love that people were issued points who had previously attended. And, the silly question - we need to come up with something to do with newbies with regards to that! 

Thank you and Eileen again, Kat! 😘
