Keep up the good work!

Rich, sounds like it will be interesting. Hope it's recorded since I will be at a 1920 home for its home inspection over in the Curtis Park area today.

Thanks - I was on the call today and plan to go "in person" and "partner" with local businesses. Thanks for the great direction.

I was on the call and listening now to the questions. It appears to be a good way to expose Active Rain and Localism to agents who don't know about it.

What a fantastic interview Bob and Rich gave! Thank you. And a special thank you to each of the ActiveRain members who joined the call- we had a little fun before the call started didn't we? Hoo-rah for ActiveRain!

We had a lot of people asking great questions after the interview. No one was able to stump Bob or Rich- well except maybe the one question about the number of visitors to Localism- and we learned so much more by their answers.

The call was recorded and I hope to have it edited (take out the announcements, etc.) and available in a week or so.

Hi Rich,

I really enjoyed the call this morning!  I have been posting on AR for awhile and sponsored one community as soon as I could, and I have been adding content to my Localism site, but I hope that we will be able to add listings to Localism soon.  That will make it even better!  I was pleased to hear several people say that they had either just signed up to AR or were going to do so right away.  The bigger the community, the more we all benefit.  And the more Google juice AR and Localism get.  Thanks for all you do!

[And I got a kick out of Bob's baby squealing in the background ;-) ]

Was really impressed to hear that over 80% of the traffic is coming from search engines. May have to adjust my college and pro football time to allocate a little bit more to Localism!

Rich, I was on the call and actually was able to ask a question. I am so enjoying my time here and hearing the enthusiasm in both of your comments was inspiring! I was also glad to learn that you are also a real estate agent (I guess i should have figured that out already) because ut explains the reason you are so intuitive about the needs and the idiosyncrasies of Realtors every where! Thanks again for a very informative call!

Rich...I saw the bigger picture more clearly today after the call....I'm still missing some of the details.  I want to and need to know how to add pictures, local businesses etc....any help or advice would be great.  Thanks.

Rich, I missed the call. Would we be able to listen to the recording?  Do you plan to schedule another?  I would love more guidance since I sponsored some communities. Thanks.
