Just Another Clear Case of The Power of Active Rain

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Elite 513.265.3004 www.LizTour.com SAL.2002007747

Our whole Active Rain schedule got blitzed yesterday thanks to one post from Thursday:  The Buyer Paid HOW Much??

We had a double promotion for this post, first a Feature (and for whatever reason, it stuck at the top of the Featured Blog for about 1/2 a day....I think the staff was down in New Orleans or on a plane and ours must have been the last pick before getting occupied), so we were getting lots of comments and what for us is a ton of reblogs (8 so far).

Then the post was the Title Post for the Active Rain Daily Drop e-newsletter...and THEN it REALLY got busy!!  We're flirting with 200 comments so far, and check the screen shot...our first post over 2000 views.  Now we attracted a couple of rude consumer commenters, one we left up (#124), another was so profane we did a delete (and we don't do that lightly), but nice to see the consumers are out there and reading!

Active Rain post views

We make a point of responding to EVERY commenter, and going over to thank every person that reblogs, and obviously this can be time consuming if you hit the commenting jackpot.  This post resonated with the readers, some of our featured posts don't get us much in the way of extra comments...but this one was a whole new story!  So much for any planned additional posts for yesterday!

So if you ever doubted just how quickly Active Rain can launch a post into orbit, don't doubt it any longer!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

There's no question a feature can drive traffic, but how does this translate to tangible business? "Obviously this can be time consuming" is right. At the end of the day though, it's the time spent with our buyers and sellers that really matters.

Congratulations BLiz!  You deserved it and re-planning your whole day will happen with fame!  : ) Some things just greatly resonate and this was one of them!  I would not worry too much about negative comments-unless obscene, of course.  You were certainly "out there" and many people felt compelledd to comment!  Enjoy your maybe easier day!

John, We look at the time spent here as two fold, obviously looking for consumers to find us and talk to us, but also to build relationships with the members here...both for potential referral business, to learn, and we've made some friends here that we'd love to drop in on some day.  Perhaps the latter doesn't lead as directly to business, but it fulfils another purpose.

Barbara, We definitely didn't expect it to take off the way it did.  We chilled a little today, went and saw the movie Hereafter after church! :)

BLiz - It sure is amazing when you hit a feature AND the Daily Drop.  I had two features in the same week once, and it does keep you mighty busy!  Thanks for writing such great posts...which you do consistently...you absolutely have earned your gold stars!
