The Power of Active Rain is a very strong power, indeed. What do I mean by Active Rain having a Power? I mean that blog posts that I've written over the years get ranked high in searches as Google juice loves Active Rain.
I'm not exactly sure what the Power of Active Rain formula is, as it's a well-hidden secret to some, but the basic formula is known by many. An example of the Power of Active Rain is after only 3 weeks of blogging, back in the summer of 2006, I had a listing appointment. I asked how they found me and what keywords they used. I duplicated their results when I got home that day!
The Power of Active Rain also brings in buyers, not just sellers. I've received calls and emails over the years from people reading anything from a market report to a trip to the zoo. You never know what people are interested in, so I write about lots of different topics, and the Power of Active Rain has taught me to write about hyper-local events and places, so I make sure to incorporate those aspects.
I received a free dinner at a restaurant here in Bee Cave TX because of a blog post I wrote about receiving bad service at this restaurant. The COO contacted me saying he saw my post, was concerned, and could he make it up to me. The Power of Active Rain got me and my family a free meal!!
Bottom line is that because of the Power of Active Rain, I have closed 20 transactions and put about $150k in my pockets! I have learned to utilize the Power of Active Rain and not just let it work in the background. Active Rain is a huge part of my prospecting day in and day out, and as long as the Power of Active Rain continues, I will continue as well.
Even smaller cities across the country can benefit just as much as larger cities, like this Grace Idaho Real Estate Agent who is just learning about the Power of Active Rain and will probably grow her business exponentially this year.
My husband thinks I spend too much time here on Active Rain, but he sure doesn't mind when the money hits the bank. My priorities are in place, and utilizing the Power of Active Rain is high up on the list!
