With Active Rain I have been able to market my local area through the use of AR and Craigslist, which has allowed me to promote my homes to local Real Estate Agents, but now I have been asked to help promote to a much larger area of Northern California.  My primary AR market would be to promote to local Real Estate Agents through the use of AR, but it seems I am limited to only my local area agents.  Help me better understand how to market to other areas.  Can I be involved in more that my local market?  Do I need to market through agents in areas other than my local market? Any thoughts or advise on expanding my local AR market to Real Estate Agents would be helpful.

When shopping for new appliances, remember that looks aren't everything. Features, capacity and energy-efficiency are important factors as well.  Before buying a new appliance, keep track of your appliance usage for one week. For example, note the number and size of your laundry loads, what items you reach for most often in your refrigerator or what meals you cook on the stove. This will help you determine what features will be most beneficial. Also include a list of problem areas, which will help you choose a new appliance that offers better solutions. For a variety of appliances, available space can be a major stumbling block. Before you make your choice, be sure to measure the footprint, height and width of the appliance area, as well as the door swing or space needed to open doors,...

      Now that the new year has begun in earnest, it's the perfect time to make sure you are ready for 2009. Here are five things you should do this month that will make your life easier in the months ahead: Clean Out the Clutter: You keep saying you'll do it...go ahead and do it. Spend an hour going through your old files, and shred those receipts, bills, and statements you no longer need, like old ATM receipts and utility bills, paystubs more than a year old, and receipts for things that are not deductible. Get Organized: While you're at it, create new files for your 2009 tax-related papers and receipts. Examples of categories include medical expenses, gift and charitable donations, and home improvements. You can also take this time to make sure your important papers--such as your wi...
