The SEO and being indexed by Google is the advantage.... it's well worth the few dollars.... the return on that investment will be great.... otherwise, your present status of Rainer is to do nothing but network with other agents and post for other agents on this platform to see....

Yes, Barbara Todaro expressed it well.  If you are a rainer, only members of this network can see your post.  If you are a rainmaker, google and the public can see them.  You can be found.  Without it, it is just networking here w/ other agents and learning.

If you choose to remain anonymous I assure you, no advantages will be realized.

So, let's not do the hoodie thing here and introduce yourself.

The best part is that your posts can be made public so you have a direct marketing avenue to consumers.

SEO is the big one, being found on Google helps big time and the SEO of ActiveRain is very good compared to starting your own outside blog from the start.

Everything in business is a learning curve. If you don't take risks there are no rewards.
