ActiveRain University - Reduce the Learning Curve & Increase Your Results

Are you looking to learn more about how to use the ActiveRain Network?  How about Social Media, Marketing and Networking?  Do you want to minimize the learning curve and get maximum results from your time on ActiveRain?  Just one hour of your time per session, and we're confident that you'll walk away with both tools and information that will help.  Some members (myself included) have taken months and even years to learn and figure this stuff out. 

We've added classes to the calendar that are "topic" focused and structured around helping members get the most out of specific areas on the network and around the community.  With the volumes of people joining ActiveRain everyday, this is just one way we are trying to increase our member support while at the same time, provide the training and information needed for members to have success on ActiveRain.

Next week we have three open forum sessions where members can join in and ask any questions they like, and two more structured classes on "How To Create A Blog Post for Consumers and SEO" and "How To Maximize Your Settings Page" on ActiveRain.  In March, we will be adding more guest presenters, trainers, and teachers along with more classes directly focused on ActiveRain tools and "How-Tos."

In recent surveys that ARU attendees submitted, there were requests to:

  • Learn More about the ActiveRain Network 
  • Learn More about SEO and Blogging
  • Learn More about Real Estate related Technologies
  • Learn More about Social Media and Networking
  • Learn tips and secrets from other Top Producing Agents

We are responding to these surveys, and setting up training classes to meet AR members needs.

If you're interested in joining us for any of the above or upcoming sessions and classes, make sure to visit the ARU Calendar and pre-register for the ones you're interested in.  We will have Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced training available for all ActiveRain members.  We are also recording some of the structured classes to be available in our archived library at a later date.  I hope you'll take advantage of these sessions and the opportunity to learn.  We share more in a single hour than any other community resource.

"Here's the biggest testimonial of all - After the session was over, I wrote my first blog post using the tips and comments Brad offered, and re-posted it correctly and then checked it out on Google.  I came up first on Google, before CNN, Forbes, and even other Asheville Real Estate firms...this informal session was FABULOUS!"

Evelyn Zebro - Asheville NC Real Estate Broker - Beverly-Hanks & Associates

"Thanks for teaching on the ActiveRain webinar. You are very easy to follow - good directions for both beginners and more advanced users. It was all great information!  Even if we know how to do something, your instructions sometimes help us accomplish the same thing more efficiently or you bring up a feature we hadn't used in awhile that we should pull to the front of our arsenal."

Judy Gilbert - The Linda Seaton Team Manager - Keller Williams Realty Franklin

"Brad - things just keep getting better at AR.  How can anyone not see the tremendous value and learning here, no matter what level you are in the blogging / social media world!"
