ActiveRain Navigation - For New Members

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Zillow - Nat'l Outreach Mgr & Dir. of Zillow Academy

If you are new to ActiveRain, first of all, we'd like to welcome you. ActiveRain is one of the best places to Network with other Real Estate Industry Professionals online, and it's a great place to start your Blog. If you have recently joined the community, but have not yet had the chance to setup your profile, create your first Blog post, or have not learned how to get around and navigate the neighborhood, this post IS for you.

This is a short 8 minute video tutorial that will take you on a journey through three main areas of the ActiveRain Online Network. These areas include: the tabs and links on the main home page, the links and navigational tools on your "My Home" page, and lastly, the hidden tools and links on AR that can get you extra points and more information about your Blog. This is a large video file, please be patient, it may take 15-20 seconds to load.

Here are some links to other pages we recommend if you're a new member here:

Disclaimer: This tutorial was created on the quiet side with the intention of not waking up the families of any "New" or existing Midnight Blogging Members. :-)

Thank you for the tutorial. Great for first time bloggers, it takes you a litle further on the tools we left for later o fear to hit. Excellent introduction.

Thought this was a great video.  I had "used" Active Rain about a year ago but am now committed to really be apart of it.

Not sure if this is the place for the question, but why don't I have my photo show up in my post? Where can I find out how to set that up?

Hi Deena - You can upgrade your ASR account to a "Rainmaker" or wit till you aquire 10,000 pts.  That's the only way your photo wil appear in the comments when you leave them on members posts.  Let me know if you need any help setting up a rainmaker account. 

BTW - Any place on my Blog is a good place for a question. :-))

Nice job Brad -- thank you very much! This was a great overview and will be helpful in getting me started. It looks like the AR interface has been changed a bit since this was posted though, any chance you'll be updating the video?

Thanks Lisa - this is definitely an outdated post and video, maybe I'll do a new one sometime later this year.  In the meantime, if you need any assistance, don't hesitate to contact me anytime. :-)

I joined back several years ago, but have been inactive. So, I'm really a newbie! Very informative video, I wish I had viewed several years ago, it would have answered some of my questions. Yes, it would be great to have an updated video. I'm looking forward to the Zillow class today!
