ActiveRain – one of the leading and certainly the most dynamic real estate social networks – has 91,690 members, as of the time of writing this post. ActiveRain is free service and the value is unprecedented in terms of access to the vast amount of information shared by other real estate professionals and online marketing in general.
We call on all of you, real estate professionals (agents, brokers, appraisals, stager, mortgage lenders etc.) to join for free and let’s help them together to reach the 100,000 members count.
- ActiveRain is a blogging system in the sense that it
enables you to write articles, it lists them in chronological order,
syndicates it via RSS and feeds the search engine monster for maximum
exposure and clearly identifies you as the author and authority.
- ActiveRain is a training ground:
Many of us come to ActiveRain for advice, discussions and to learn from
each other. Training each other on business, marketing etc. is what
creates the loyalty and incremental benefit, and this sets ActiveRain
apart from other services.
- ActiveRain is an ecosystem and a team marketing platform:
One participant’s success depends on the success of the overall
ecosystem and AR members directly and indirectly enhance each others
marketing efforts. For example, there is such a deep interconnection
between the 1 million+ AR pages Google knows about, that search engines
pay extra attention to content published via ActiveRain and value the
content as highly relevant.
- ActiveRain is a unique social network:
Valuable social networks are those, where the connections between the
participants create a value-add, which would not exist without these
connections. That is, there are 1) new and 2) valuable information born
from these relationships. In other words, the relationships between
ActiveRainers are as important as the content generated by individuals.
To celebrate ActiveRain’s contribution to the real estate industry, we – at RealBird – have released an ActiveRain Social Network Widget, which can be used to merge your ActiveRain and RealBird account into a handy, great looking, team marketing platform. Market your ActiveRain associates (the ActiveRain members you selected as your inner circle), each other’s business profile, each other’s listings (published through RealBird) and each other blog posts!
Below is an example of the widget with viral marketing capability built into it:
The widget above shows our own RealBird ActiveRain associates, their RealBird listings and the blog posts. To get your own, join ActiveRain and RealBird (both for free) and get your own widget from the RealBird member area.
Enjoy the benefits and let’s give ActiveRain a helping hand to reach the 100,000 member mark.
