Why don't you just post to your website or blog and then share on Active Rain?

What Nina Hollander said is how most of the gurus suggest you do it.  Post on your site first.  Wait a couple weeks until it gets indexed and starts getting traffic (I often submit the blog to Google manually to speed up the indexing process), then share it out to the Active Rains and Realty Times of the world.  That way your site looks like the first and authoritative source, which is important because those other sites are going to out rank you in the SEO metrics... probably for ever.

I make sure that all my AR blog posts have links leading back to my website. Then I mix it up with sharing my website as well as AR blogs on social media. Since I've incorporated this method my website hits have quadrupled!

I post to my WordPress site first - that auto-posts to my FB page, LinkedIn, and Twitter ... once the post is indexed, I may share on AR.  I have not been doing a lot of sharing of posts on AR these days ...

David Martin - it is always a good idea to share on SM.

Localism posts are always the best - share in right groups of Facebook.

Listing posts - share EVERYWHERE! You'll be surprised how high your posts rank on Google. (Use keywords, of course.)

Posting original content on ActiveRain (something you haven't posted on your site) is a great thing to do despite the other advice I'm seeing here.  I do what Debe Maxwell does, I post on my site, but I also post here.  And I do share my posts from my site and from here on Social Media.  When I actually get consistant with social media and post every day around 4:30 pm I find it does fabulous.  But then I get busy and miss a few days and it's like starting over there.  But yes, share away.  BUT always make sure your posts link back to your site. ALWAYS.

I do a little of both, David! 

I mostly post local post on my website first, then here. I share from YouTube (listing videos) first, then my website, then here when I'm being methodical about it.

Other times...it's hit or miss but, something is posted to SM every day of the week!
