Happy to have landed on this post. Lots of information and going to bookmark to read all the 28 comments. I recognize I need some help :) Also want to say how grateful I am for Bob Stewart and Kerrie La Guardia, the Ambassadors and members of AR who have reached out to help. The University, itself, is a Godsend.

This post is definitely a MUST READ.  There is so much helpful information for those of us new to AR and I thank Bob and Kerrie for making it available.  The post is giving me more a in-depth understanding of the ActiveRain components.  Thanks so much!

does the AR outside blog membership fee reduce as you reach point levels.

Alice,

(I also sent you this in an email but figured I'd post it here as well)

Yes, there is something like this in place. It's based on a starting price of $49/month.

When you reach these levels, your fee gets reduced.

100K - reduced to $39

200K - reduced to $29

300K - reduced to $19

400K - reduced to $9

500K - your account becomes free moving forward

However, we currently have a promotion running where someone can join as a Rainmaker for $24/month. If you are interested in that, you can go to http://arpromo.com/boot24 (make sure you are logged into your current account when you go to that link, so it upgrades your existing account).

If you use this promo, you wouldn't get your first price break until you reached 300K, where your price would then go from $24 to $19 and then you could continue to lower the price at 400K and then become free at 500K. 

I hope that explains what you were looking for. Please let me know if I can help in any other way.

My sister in law is planning to sell here home in Franklin, NC, but I'm a Realtor in Central Florida.  Are there any Realtors in the Franklin, NC area that would like a referral?
