Austin: I wish you and your website well, you should do great in the next few years!

Suggestion, take each benefit of joining and write an individual blog about that particular benefit, enlighten the members of ActiveRain as a group.

Then create a draft email, that can be duplicated over and over, and sent out to individuals, and send it out as an invitation, maybe as a powerpoint presentation?

Spend some time researching here on ActiveRain, and start wih one State at a time, and one agent at a time, and work from there.

Other than that you will have to email me for more sugestions, but use your business email, not through Active rain unless you include the business email in your request.

Twitter, you can search and find investors and others then you can target your message and interact with them,  I agree facebook probably won't work to well for your situation.  Good luck.

Hey Austin, I liked your Hot Tip approach on   Agents have told me that they have attracted good leads on Craigslist by advertising other agent's listings, with persmission, of course.  Thanks for sharing.

Hi Austin, I am new here.  I use Craigslist all the time and have for years with great success.  I have many times asked permission, via email.. from other Realtors for permission to use their listings and have been successful at it.  I use email, so I have proof that I was given permission.  You never know. The word is getting out now how successful Craigslist is, and it is a little less productivee than it was in the past simply because of the volume of Realtors using it. It is fantastic for locating investors as there is so much response for that end of the market.  Postlets put advertising listings over the top.  It is the best tool I have seen in a very long time.  I get responses from a lot of unqualified people, so you need to screen and qualify them a lot more than other ways of getting leads.  Also check through homes wanted, not just posting for sale to get leads.  I do a lot of rentals because I can help clients to clean up credit, and in a year, when the lease is up they are ready to buy.
