How To Get Started On Activerain

How to Get Started on activerain.

Hello All! 

I just had a question on facebook from a new member to ActiveRain on how to get started.  As I was helping him navigate the "cow pies" of blogging here I found this link and thought it was perfect to have everything a new member would want to know in one place.

Thank you activerain you make navigating this incredible source extremely easy.

I have a few additions which are covered in the hyperlinks and are the most important tools for success. 

  • Join some groups
  • Meet the members
  • Connect on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Linkedin
  • Add associates  (Be sure to organize them by state)
  • Comment on blog posts
  • Keep new content coming about your area and properties

Of course joining the group Cosmic Cow Pie...The Rome Way is a great place to start.  Read the group members blog posts and connect with them as an associate and on social media as they all want to help. 

Welcome aboard!

Carra,  This certainly answers the question of how to get started. There are so many webinars for newbies to help them get up and running in no time at all.

Carra, where were you 3 years ago when I needed help. I had to navigate those cow pies on my own and every now and then my vision blurs and I manage to step in one.

Ed ~  I know you have those high boots and flack jacket... so you just went right in and did it!  This really is an organized way of connecting the dots:)

Carra, It is easy to invite a member and it is easy for them to join. But ..it takes a lot of encouragement to get them up and running. You are the master of giving and sharing to others.

This was my favorite tip...Of course joining the group Cosmic Cow Pie...The Rome Way is a great place to start.

Margaret  ~  Fun stuff!  AR really has it organzied now... It was much harder when I started.. figuring out how to put a photo in or wrap text... even figuring out how to join groups.. then what groups to join.. where to post!  It's a BIG job to really understand how the blog community works and SEO... so having fun people like you around to help makes it so much eaiser!  Did you read the foreclosure post about Larry Crowne?  would love to see what you think!
