ActiveRain Members and RainMakers - Do You Need Help?

ActiveRain Members and RainMakers - Do You Need Help?

I'm looking for AR members who feel they need some training and coaching.  There are many great trainers and classes/coaching offered out there, but they might NOT be what you're looking for and what you REALLY NEED.

Are You Serious? Are you Ready?

What are your questions or concerns about Social Media, networking online, or Blogging on this massive Real Estate community and network?  What things might you be missing that will make a difference in your efforts here? What do you want-vs-need?


After many years of working with AR members
day in and day out, I have seen and heard it all, believe me.  Today I'm taking my experiences and the knowledge I've gained here to the next level. I've come up with an idea and plan for a possible solution for those who struggle in the web 2.0 arena.

I'm offering coaching classes to ALL ActiveRain members.  The design and content was built and based around the needs of those who I see challenged and struggling in the RE.net world daily.  In this case, it's a simple one-hour training and coaching call designed to educate and simplify the power and the tools of the AR network. Take advantage of my 12-16 hour days 6-7 days a week that I've spent learning and finding answers and solutions to member's challenges. 

The goal: My experience and knowledge here will save you time, and dramatically reduce your learning curve.

Are you not sure how to use Hit Router because you're not a REALTOR?  Are you lost when it comes to creating an effective signature for your posts?  Do you struggle with understanding how SEO works?  What about titles, content, and great anchor text?  Do they make a difference to the search engines?  How do you manage your time with Social Media?  Is there a Business Strategy or Plan that works?  How do you generate, cultivate, capture, and convert leads?  Are you different than the other 200K AR members?

Over the years, you've shared your questions, needs and concerns, and one by one I've been trying to help.  Now I'm going to open the "Rain" flood gates to everyone.  OK, here it comes...  what's the catch?  This coaching call is $99.00, but will be HALF OFF to any and all AR members and Rainmakers.  Why?  Because I want you to take advantage of an opportunity to get the most out of your membership and the efforts you invest here on ActiveRain. 

Remember, it's not the AR network that will make you successful, it's what YOU do with it, and how YOU use it that will make it worthy of your time, your efforts, and your financial investment.  Celebrating your "Thrill of Victory" with you is much more rewarding for me than witnessing your "Agony of Defeat!"

STEP ONE: It's less than the cost of filling your gas tank, and you'll learn some stuff that "works!"

STEP TWO: Submit the form below and take your Blogging efforts on AR to the next level.

 

     

"Learn More. Get More. Do More. Be More."

Brad, this is going to be such a great help to the AR members!

Posted by Connie Harvey, Realtor - Nashville TN Real Estate (Pilkerton Realtors) about 8 years ago

Great food for thought, Brad...I'll have to brainstorm and see what I come up for areas that I would want your help and expertise in. Your blog posts are always helpful, but it's more of a "oh, that's great to know!" instead of a "that's exactly what I was looking for!"

Come to think of it, your post about how to include PDF's in AR blog posts was something I was looking for...in the back of my mind! :)

Just a couple of hours ago, I called asking for help and look at this response! An entire post to help not just me but everyone!! Go ahead and try to tell me it was coincidence.

I would sign up right now but have settlements on the 24th.

Thanks,

Margaret

Hi Connie - thanks.  It's been a bit frustrating only being to help one member at a time here over the phone. 

With so many new members joining AR everyday, that makes it really hard for me to get the proper training and education out to everyone all at once.  I'll try this way and see what happens???  I already have so many that want the one-on-one training and coaching, this just seems like the best way to get some group coaching and support out there to everyone who wants or needs it. 

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus) about 8 years ago

Margaret - I'm calling you back now...had to get this posted real quick.

BTW - there's 3 options, I was thinking of everyones busy schedules.  I still have openings for the 27th.   :-)))

Thanks Brad for the heads up, you are always helping out to all AR community, take care my friend ! :)

Posted by Ray Saenz, Homes for Sale in Laredo, TX - Texas, Realtor (Exit Realty Laredo) about 8 years ago

Brad, would love to sign up but can't make it on either of those dates.  Will you be doing this again?  Also, do you know what you'd be covering?

 

Posted by Lora "Leah" Stern 914-772-4528, Real Estate Salesperson (Coldwell Banker, 170 N Main Street, New City NY 10956) about 8 years ago

Hi Lora - I'll be covering the things I mentioned in this post and in addition, sharing some of the tips and short-cuts I've learned "by testing and doing."  It will be the stuff that has helped hundreds of our other members, but just not one at a time. 

Sorry you can't make it to this, I'm not sure how all this will unfold and whether these will be available or not in the future, but it's the best I can do to help out members right now.... at least those who have been requesting me to do something like this.  :-)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus) about 8 years ago

I signed up!  And I'm so thankful you are on the west coast so they're not so daggone early.  I am just not a morning person.  ;-)

Hi Susan - I saw that, you are FAST!!  :-) 

You were actually one of the very first ones to get signed up, man you are on it.

Brad, You are just fantastic...first class service. A post to help us all and a personal phone call to get my blog straightened out. Thank you! Thank You!

This is the next best thing to Rain Camp I am signing up but still wish you would bring Rain Camp to the South! New Orleans or Houston hint hint :)

Brad,

I tell you what I need is an Apple blogging coach.  I was just getting good with Firefox and all the add-ons and then I go and convert to Apple across the board and now I have to figure out all over again how to jazz up my blogs.

Posted by Larry Story, Total Care Realty, LLC, Greensboro, NC Real Estate (Total Care Realty) about 8 years ago

Brad,

YEAY! As soon as I make my list (and big money items stop breaking in my home-not many left. lol) I will be signing up. Thanks so much for offering this. I am going to have to agree with Marilyn on bringing Rain Camp to the South...but near Huntsville, AL (or surrounding areas). heehee.

 

Posted by Diane Casale, REALTOR®, ABR®, CNAS®, SNP, Selling North Alabama (Coldwell Banker First, Huntsville, AL) about 8 years ago

I am sure you are worth every penny!  And I can't wait to take part in a Rain Camp, but I thought we received a training for being a Rainmaker?      

Posted by Christine Pappas - REALTOR®, eXp Realty - The Agent-Owned Cloud Brokerage (eXp Realty) about 8 years ago

Good idea. I wish you much success.

Posted by Teral McDowell (Referral Patners LLC) about 8 years ago

Thanks for offing this ... I am plan on doing it.   Too much on my plate right now, however I understand the value and appreiate the offer.

Posted by Troy Funk, Broker / Associate (Allison James Estates & Homes, Sarasota 941-957-3737) about 8 years ago

Larry - I've been there my friend. When I first joined the AR team, I had to switch over to MAC/Apple as well, so I understand and feel your pain my friend. That pain however will soon be replaced with elation and joy once you see and understand how user friendly and intuitive the MAC is.  Of course I'm here to help if you need me.  :-)

Hi Christine - you can still get training at ActiveRain University, this is not part of that curriculum.

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus) about 8 years ago

Brad - Great idea, but doesn't look like the dates/time frame will work for me.  But, I hope that you will offer again later in the year so I can attend.  I also hope you have raincamp in NYC area soon...and, before the cold weather/snow sets in.

Brad - I do have a very specific question, so I think I need to call you on it...  I will definitely sign up for the class - gotta look and see if it works for the time!

Hi Brad....Wow !!    What a great service

Dagny - I'm in the office all day today.  :-)

Robert - Thanks, I know you'll benefit from what I'm about to share.

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus) about 8 years ago

Hi Brad. I just signed up and very excited. I've tried to hire local SEO-type companies to take care of all of this and not ONE company returned my emails. I just don't have time to do a lot with kids and real estate. So maybe I can pick up a few tips from you because I honestly have NO idea what I'm doing!

Posted by LaNita Cates (REMAX of Joliet) about 8 years ago

Brad, this is a great idea. I'm sure that newbies that fall into Activerain have to be overwhelmed with all we talk about.

Posted by Lizette Fitzpatrick, Lizette Realty, Lexington KY MLS - Kentucky Homes (Lizette Realty - Richmond KY) about 8 years ago

My biggest problem is I set aside the time and then something comes up that has to have my attention. If this was something that was available n line and i could dial into when I had time I would be VERY interested

Posted by Charlie Ragonesi, Homes - Big Canoe, Jasper, North Georgia Pros (AllMountainRealty.com) about 8 years ago

Brad, you are so generous with your time and efforts to the AR community and once again you prove that with this post...thank you thank you thank you!

Posted by Kristin Johnston - REALTOR®, Giving Back With Each Home Sold! (RE/MAX Realty Center ) about 8 years ago

A few weeks ago I called the phone number that used to be at the top of the screen to get help.  I called twice and left messages both time.  I never got a return call.  Now I see the phone number is no longer on the screen.  Is this why?  I still need help, but can't commit to the scheduled times.

Posted by Lorrie Semler, REALTOR® in the Dallas area. Call/text 972-416-3417, Real Service. Real Results. Real Estate (United Real Estate) about 8 years ago

Hi Lorrie - not sure why the phone number was removed from the top of the AR screens, this particular coaching call and class have nothing to do with that though, I'll try to find out why the number was removed??? 

You can always access any of the AR staff and phone numbers if you need to at http://activerain.com/about

Brad - terrific opportunity for folks who need the help to get it. Is AR University still operating? Plans for future webinars?

Wow, coaching...this is awesome Coach Brad, miss you.

Great going Brad-

We all need this, least I do!

Posted by Jim & Cathy Wood Greater Nashville Area Real Estate (Crye-Leike Realtors, Inc.) about 8 years ago

WOW! I'm going to have to put this post back into "draft" mode, thanks for all the great responses and contacts.  I've been wanting to get something like this going for quite some time now but unfortunately, I just didn't have the time or resources available to do it.    Thanks everyone for your patience and understanding.

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus) about 8 years ago

This is a great idea.  I'll have to check my calendar.

Posted by Tammie White, Broker, Franklin TN Homes for Sale (Franklin Homes Realty LLC) about 8 years ago

Those times do not work for me, Brad, but this is definitely something I am interested in.

I am still trying to get a grip on the ROI for ActiveRain.  Thanks

Tammie - we'd love to have you join us.

Chris - I'm available for one-on-one too.  :-)

Steve - an hour with me and your "grip" on ROI will be like kung fu!  lol~
