ActiveRain Is Your Best Friend In Navigating Cyberspace!

ActiveRain Is Your Best Friend In Navigating Cyberspace!

August will be my 2nd Anniversary as an activerain member and it is hard to count all the incredible tools I have learned to use just reading blog posts. I learned how to use html to embed things, add photos, create links, add color, the importance of key words and the list goes on and on.

Activerain is one of THE most important assets any real estate related business can subscribe to because the knowledge shared here is "PRICELESS."  The fact that all the participants are willing to share what they have learned then post how readers can use what they have learned makes this the blog community to belong to where you feel like you are at home.

The latest learning tool activerain is utilizing is blogtalkradio. The new blogtalkradio show hosted by activebob shares audio testimony of activerain members who are sharing openly about their success with blogging on activerain.

Tuesday, May 17th activeBob, of RainRadio will interview Russel Ray on Blogtalkradio 9am Pacific Time, noon on the east coast.  Bob Stewart shares the event in a blog post everyone should read and learn from. Call in number to speak with the host for the show is (626) 231-0316 or just listen on your computer.

As I was reading Bob's post I clicked on the blogtalkradio link and listened to Bob Stewart interview J Philip Faranda. 

Amazing, is all I can say as I listened to Philip talk about his business and how blogging helped him become a National news contributor on television and in the media.  I continued to work and was inspired to write this post based on the interview!

Below is a screen shot of what blogtalkradio looks like and how you can see the upcoming shows.                      Note the RSS feed link and itunes icon under the avatar.

Putting a "consulting hat on" anyone reading might take a look at blogtalkradio, listen to how the activerain participants are generating new clients with blog posts and social media marketing, then consider your own blogtalkradio show interviewing community leaders and broadcasting live from community events. You will again be taking your local community to a global market sharing what is going on in your own back yard.

You can link your blog to the description of the shows and think about how you might be able to send your SEO skyrocketing with the addition of the blogtalkradio connection. How would it be to interview the principal of a school or the mayor or the Chamber President.  Once you have completed the interviews you have them archived forever and a resource for anyone to go back to and get a real feel of the individual you interviewed in your community or across the world for that matter.

Each show on blogtalkradio will have an individual embed code that can be put on websites or facebook to share with the world as seen above with J Philip Faranda.  Another tool in social media to set you apart from the crowd. Activebob asks, in all his interviews... what helps you set the bar in real estate service?

Time is an important commodity with the fast pace the world is going in today.  Blogtalkradio has a link to an itunes download so you can instantly download any shows you are following on blogtalkradio and listen in your ipod or iphone while you are driving in the car later.  I learned this at a mid winter conference where a "digital citizen"  @Evo_Terra  shared how he keeps up with the news and radio shows he does not have time to listen to as they are broadcast.  I have used this "cow tip" and now catch up on audio playbacks as I am driving.

Check out the agents that have been on blogtalkradio sharing their marekt information.  You could be sharing your market information in audio format talking with lenders, title companies, stagers, city planners and community leaders.

Margaret ~  It's so great seeing all the tools being used by activerain to share the word.  I know you will be an upcoming guest sharing the "Rome Way" and the incredible results you have gotten from participating at activerain.  Remember.. the shows are always available in the archive so if you miss the live show you can listen when you are working at a later time.  Thank you!

Cara - there are a lot of people here in the rain who are mentors to a lot of us and they likely don't even know it ..... the sharing of knowledge here in  the rain is simply incredible

Kathy ~  You are so right!  We read the wonderful content, learn something new and unless we post a comment they have no idea how many people they helped just by posting on their blog.  Great to be here with you!

Cara:  You showed me firsthand the strength and rewards to be reaped through BlogTalkRadio.  I still receive "hits" and bonus from our combined effort.  Amazing!  Proof enough for me.  I hope that AR's efforts prove the same for those that take part ...

Carra, Tuned in a bit late but was still able to listen to most of Russel's words of wisdom. He is amazing with all he does with blogging, teaching us about home inspections, photography, nature, trains and so much more.
It was a great session.

Gene ~  We had a good time.. but we were on Carra Riley Live for your video link... you were FANTASTIC.. but the blogtalkradio works well just sharing the message and people being able to listen when they have time! 

Margaret ~  I was a little late too.. but the good thing about blogtalkradio is you can go back and listen to all of it when you have time.  I had pressed 1 so I could ask a quesiton but I don't think they are running it like a Q & A session.. not sure but did you press 1 to talk and did you get to talk?  Fun learning together!

I had not considered using online radio as another means of reaching out.  I totally agree that using Activerain is clearly the most valuable marketing tool any agent can use.  This added angle of using blogtalkradio just makes it all the more interesting.  I'll have to give serious consideration to adding this to my online strategy.

Bryan ~  It could be somthing to help you stand out from other Real Estate companies... a weekly show with community leaders... then people could go back on your site for past interviews... you could direct new people there to hear about the community leaders.... just more tools in your box!
