Activerain MLS Online

Welcome to the Activerain MLS Online group.  This group was created to make the search for listings easy to find within the AR Network.  Each group member here has the desire to do more business and networking, but also with the expectations of getting referrals, generating leads, exposing their inventory to potential buyers, and having their names and companies moved up in the search engines.

I have looked through the 23 pages of "groups" and joined those that peaked my personal interests.  However, I had difficulty finding just one group that focused on posted listings.  Search no more.  We already have members joining the group and posting their listings for your previewing pleasure.  Now, with an online MLS within Activerain, Realtors, Investors, Buyers and Sellers can go to one location, one group, one network, to find all the properties available on the AR Network. Then they are pushed over to Localism.com

It's very simple. Go to http://activerain.com/groups/MLS and click on "JOIN GROUP".  Then, when you post your listing (as a logged in member) up on Activerain, simply put a check mark in the box for the "Activerain MLS Online".  This will allow members to network with each others listings, help relocation agents find their clients homes in other areas, and the best part, to begin really building the relationships and referrals that can come from the AR Network.

I am committed to seeing members benefit and share some of the same successes that I have in Activerain.  I have posted directions on how to input your listing into AR, and into this group.  You don't have to post your listings here, but if there is an agent on the West Coast who's seller is moving to the East Coast, or anywhere in between, they may just pull up "YOUR LISTING in AR.  Then the referral contracts start to emerge.

Imagine being able to do 5 - 10 additional transactions a year by referral, just by posting your listings here on Activerain.  There are so many ways to have success within this network, I believe the Activerain MLS Online, will be a huge contributor to the success of the agents in my areas, and in yours too.  Check it out, join if you like, and start posting your inventory to take full advantage of what Activerain has to offer.

The Activerain MLS Online is not Myspace, it is YourSpace!!  Are you taking full advantage of what AR has to offer?  We would like to have our group on the main "Activerain.com" feature page for easy access to all inventory. With your support, participation, and future success stories, Activerain may grant us this request.

Wishing you all the greatest successes here in the Largest Real Estate Network of Professionals in the Nation.

Hi Brad,  Thanks for the tips you sent me.  They surely have helped me a lot.  I just posted one of my listing on the Activerain MLS Online and I could not post more than one photo, I guess I need more practice.  It is really very nice of you for the free exposure and hopefully this will result in selling my listing also.  Thanks.

Terry - You can add as many photos as you like, (i recommend 3 or 4), by using the  icon above.  I would try and make the photos no larger than 2 x 2 in.  Then you can mix and match the text accordingly.  There should be an instruction page here in the group, feel free to refer to that for details. Let me know if you need any additional help!  :-)

Vincent - I'm in the west and you're in the east, hopefully this group will cover all of the "In Between". :-)
By putting your listings on AR and including them in the group, you will definitely expose your clients property to a larger targeted audience, plus you'll get more google juice from having it on Active Rain. Don't forget the "Virtual Tour" group as well. That's where the technology is really at in todays market.  The better the virtual tour, the more hits and opportunities for offers. Thanks, and best of luck to you! B-)

Tom - this hopefully inspired you to join our group and start posting your listings!  The group has grown considerably since this post, in fact, I hadn't had a comment on this one in over 6 months. 

Thanks for bringing it back to life, and keeping it alive!

If you post to a group does that put your blog in just that spot so it's hidden unless someone goes inside that group?

Maya - you can resize your photos by clicking on the photo one time, then drag one of the corners to the desired size.  You can also use the appearance tab when uploading the image to set a desired size.  To make them appear side by side, just don't use any of the justification features.  Import the photo or image, press the space bar a couple times, then import the next image, space bar a couple times, and keep repeating the process.

Remember, the width of your post is only 640 wide.  This means you can have 3 photos side by side as long as they are only 200 wide each.  The larger the photo, the less you'll be able to have them next to each other.  Never import a photo larger than 600 wide or it will not look right on your Outside Blog or Localism.  I hope this helps and makes cents... I mean sense.

When posting to a group, I would create the post on your own Blog, then just add the post to the groups you want it to appear.  If you post ONLY to the group, then that is the only place it will appear and it won't show up on your Blog or anywhere else.  Only people who enter and view the group will see your post.  As others enter posts into that group, yours will eventually roll off the page.  It's still in the group, but most recent posts are the one's displayed. 

Let me know if you have any questions or need any help with any of this stuff ok?  :-)

Hi Evelyn!  I see you found THE most important person here to comment to FIRST!  LOL

We'll work on your signature when you get a minute!  Your profile is shaping up and you've already started commenting--you go girl!

Hi Brad!  You are SUCH the resource for new members here--I can't keep up with all of your tutorial posts--you need to post one with a list of every one that you've written!  That should take you about a year!

Thanks for all you do!
