Forums on their way

By
Education & Training with ActiveRain

One of the next things we're going to add to the ActiveRain Real Estate Network, is discussion forums.  Initially this will simply be a list of public forums but then will expand to allow users to create their own forums both public and private.  We're trying to put together a list of the public forums we should include in the first round.  Here's the brainstorming off the top of my head:

  • Introductions
  • General Discussion
  • ActiveRain Tips
  • Advice to Sellers
  • Advice to Buyers
  • Internet Promotion
  • Client Referrals
  • Industry News

Any suggestions or input is appreciated...

How about a "Just for REALTORS" to discuss Realtor issues, ethics changes, NAR functions, etc.

Need a category for "ActiveRain Success Stories" Just got my first non-member contact from ActiveRain. Would love to hear who closes their first deal off an ActiveRain lead.

Thanks for the suggestion. That's great to hear about your contact, hopefully that's just the first of many... I've gotten email from a number of agents who've had consumers call them after finding them on this site. But, traffic by consumers to this site right now is a tiny fraction of what it will be within just a month or two. Agents who've got higher placement due points are going to end up getting the majority of these consumers. So points = more future business, and is our way of rewarding those who do the most to help grow this network.

If creating an agent forum, my suggestion would be to use the term "Real Estate Agent" or "Broker" rather than "Realtor". I am a REALTOR (which I know is incorrect phrasing), but not every one is, and many issues are faced by all agent in the business, not just due paying members of NAR.

I like Pauls idea of ActiveRain success stories.

Matt/Caleb you mentioned in your post traffic from consumers rising and I was wondering where are you promoting/advertising the site. How are people finding out about the site other than realtor referrals?

A referral forum for agents needing a contact in another city would be very helpful.  Many offices have referral programs but they can be a bit impersonal.  Might help to include the fee you would be willing to pay, etc.
