Bill Travis, Broker/Owner (Captain Bill Realty, LLC): Real Estate Agent in Gilbert, AZ Bill Travis, Broker/Owner (Captain Bill Realty, LLC) said over 6 years ago,
"Today I received my first lead and client through ActiveRain. The person called and said they had been following my posts on another forum and recently also found my ActiveRain posts. They need to sell their house in a short sale situation right away in order to move out of state and asked me if I would be their agent and come list their house for them.

It was quite a compliment to be called like that, and I'll work hard to get the house sold for them quickly.

(Note) We successfully negotiated a short sale with the bank and saved the client from a foreclosure."

Paul McFadden, Pest Control, Seattle, WA. (Paratex): Industry Observer in Seattle, WA Paul McFadden, Pest Control, Seattle, WA. (Paratex) said over 6 years ago,
"My Active Rain success story was earlier this month. I was contacted by a realtor (one of the first times here a realtor reached out and wanted to meet) and he proceeded to not only meet with me but provide a great referral to a builder who was a client of his. At the start of the year, I decided to do a blog post every day. That was my big hairy audacious goal for 2010! I don't know if that's the reason I'm starting to see increased activity on Active Rain or not. But I'll take it just the same. It also makes me realize how powerful Active Rain is for building relationships. I plan on being here for a long time. Thanks again to everyone at Active Rain. I'm glad I found you guys!"

"When I became a member of ActiveRain I thought, "what did I get myself into"? I blogged for a while, but became discouraged.

Then I took on a new approach... started blogging more about my town, and events going on. Along with listings in the area.

Last year I received some calls from my blogging.. but the best part was that I ended up having 3 clients from my participation and blogging on ActiveRain.. all 3 ended up buyer homes. I owe this all to ActiveRain... and of course my contributions of posts. But thank you ActiveRain.. I could NOT have done this without you. This is a great partnership.

Most recently, I brought a gift to a client who I worked with in finding their VERY FIRST home. I left a few weeks go by so they could move in and feel relaxed before coming by. I was so excited for them, I couldn't wait to see what they had done with the home. When I arrived they took this plain home, and just gave it new life. The gift I brought fit in perfectly. What surprised me more, was they had a gift for me too. They felt I went over and above what I needed to do. That just blew me away."

"MMC®has designed this membership for those of you with long term business and career goals. If you are not growing in knowledge you will never have the skills or tools to grow a business. Continued education is paramount to your success and the success of any business you are associated with. New technology is only one very small aspect of business growth you must be abreast of. The constant changing of your consumer’s needs and his/her reasons for joining, committing or pledging their loyalty to your golf property is changing every year. Your grandfather joined a golf club for much different reasons than your father, and you joined for far different reasons than your father. Little marketing nuggets like this added up with a thousand other details is the difference between an enormously successful business and a business barely getting by."
