Is ACTIVERAIN the NEW EBAY?
In the New York State Lotto, they say it takes a dollar...and a dream. I wonder what the founders of Activerain thought?
When I joined Activerain in October, 2006, it had about 6,000 members. Wow, I thought, that's a lot. NEVER did I imagine it would grow to the heights and status it has today with over 136,118 members and a site so loved by Google http://www.Google.com it is crawled every 15 minutes or so!
I also remember the early days of EBAY. They started with not much more then a dollar...and a dream. Just two people and a world full of possibilities has Ebay now as one of the most visited sites on the Internet.
Ebay, it is said, grew by "trial and error." As with any site, as it grew they aquired more staff, made changes and listened to their members. They began to add listing fees to help support their site....and they, too, continue to grow every day. Starting to sound FAMILIAR?
I LOVE the EBAY stories of success. I LOVE the ACTIVERAIN STORIES OF SUCCESS even more! I've had my share of my own success stories and many of you have as well. These success stories continue to grow. For Realtors, Home Stagers, Feng Shui Consultants, Home Inspectors, Decorators...ANTHING PERTAINING TO REAL ESTATE, THIS IS THE PLACE TO BE!
I also know how the old Localism Beta worked for me, personally. At one time I was getting more contacts from my BLOG then I was from my Website. There have been questions made recently about the benefits of paying for a service like this.
I calculated my own costs. I currently pay $175.00 to be listed on a site and in several searches, MY site often comes up HIGHER. Another one costs $150.00. To date I have had exactly ONE PERSON advise me they've found me from either one of those sites. Countless have told me they've found me from my blogs...both the Activerain Blog and Localism.
For me, personally, all it takes is ONE client to cover my costs for the new outside blog. ONE. For many of you it would be considerably less.
Watching this incredible site grow, getting contacts and making REAL friends is PRICELESS. So are the wonderful and innovative work that's always being done on Activerain. Haven't signed up, yet? It's a no brainer!
