ActiveRain Tutorials: ActiveRain Announces Blogging Basics 101 for Your Company or Brokerage

ActiveRain Announces Blogging Basics 101 for Your Company or Brokerage

One of the most common questions that I keep getting asked over & over is by many of our members here on ActiveRain is "How do I get those I work with & my friends to try out ActiveRain.  They just don't understand it and how to use it for business."  I also get asked by many of our members to teach the class for their brokerage.  In fact, many have asked if I would come personally & teach the class at their office. 

While unfortunately I am not able to physically travel around the US to visit each & every current & new member in person,  I am however able to do it virtually through technology.  As many of you know, I started a few months back teaching a Blogging Basics 101 class for our new members that have not yet become a Rainmaker. With our webinar software, I am now able to teach up to 1,000 people at a time.  So if you have a small or large company or brokerage, I should be able to accommodate. So, without further ado, let me announce that I will now be offering my Blogging Basics 101 class to not only new members, but also to brokerages, & businesses alike.  

So, if you have been telling your staff & friends about ActiveRain & encouraging them to sign up but they have not yet taken the time to do so, this class is for you & them!  This is the perfect solution to help all of your friends that are real estate agents, lenders, home inspectors,home stagers, & brokers to finally get their blogging career started in the right direction.   

What Can Be Expected in this Webinar?

In this class I will teach you: 

How to Optimize Your ActiveRain Profile.
How to Insert Photos into your Blog
How to Insert Hyperlinks.
Setting up Your Outside Blog.
How to write effective blog posts for consumers & search engines.

How to use your blog to connect with your community.
Topics to write about on your blog.
Question & Answer  
Why Blogs are the most important tool in your Social Media Arsenal.

When is My Webinar For My Brokerage?

Good question!  Due to different time zones & schedules, we will be planning these classes separately from my regularly scheduled classes.  Depending on the amount of interest along with the size of the brokerages, there may be a few companies combined together.   Of course, these classes will be scheduled at convenient times for your business.  So, if you have your company meetings on Tuesdays at 9AM, or Thursday at 5PM I will do my best to accommodate.

How Much is it Gonna Cost me?

For this time of top notch training from an expert in the field, you could expect to be paying hundreds of dollars to have them come in & speak to your team.  But, what if I said that the training was free for our members?  That is right, I said FREE.  The only thing that I ask, is that you make sure that those in your office that are not currently using ActiveRain on a regualr basis come to the class & encourage them to at least try out our Rainmaker Membership for the first month.  It will only cost them $5.00, but they will be able to enjoy the successes like so many of our members already have.

Hi Jeremy... As you know, I sat in on your AR 101 webinar this week.  It was a great session filled with a lot of good information both for beginners and as a refresher for those with some experience blogging.  I think this program is a great idea.  Good luck with it.

Great idea Jeremy.  attended the 101 class last week and learned a lot.  Thanks for your valuable support of our business!!!

Awesome Jeremy! Great for the office but as an individual agent - I need an edge and am not willing to share!

Posted by Jason Feinman, Bergen County Real Estate Expert, ABR, CNE, e-PRO (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) over 8 years ago

Are you going to have more advanced classes as well? That would be cool for those of us that want to learn more but already understand hyperlinks and the like.

Thank you Jeremy,

Your offer is very interesting.  However, I can't imagine being able to train 1,000 people at one time!

Posted by Janet Reilly (Sotheby's International Realty) over 8 years ago

No Way Janet!  The more the merrier in the class will be awesome!

Melissa- There might be some of that coming up in the future.

Jeremy-

This sounds great, especially for free! Blogging unlocks so much potential for agents when done well. You should know!

If you ever need someone to help put on these webinars, especially if they're about Twitter, you know who to call.

Have a great weekend.

This is such a great idea.  You know, I've been able to get people to sign up, but they have all abandoned their blogs.  I hope you see a lot of interest in this.

Jeremy - I know that this has real value, since I had a chance to listen to one of them about a month ago that you conducted.

Hi Jeremy. That's a fantastic idea and it's free. Five dollars is very appealing and affordable for someone who wants to try out Active Rain.  ~ Lana

Jeremy,

No doubt your training will enrich many. I'm just not sure I want all my local colleagues getting this smart...

Jeremy, I'm with David on this one.  I want to keep AR all to myself!  As greedy as it may sound and even a bit self-serving, but this business isn't really all for one and one for all as many seem to think it is.  I am in independent contractor and I independently found AR and I will not give away my secrets of success to anyone...my lips are sealed.  The last time I shared my finding of Trulia with my manager and my office, my whole office is on there now and we are ALL answering the same questions and practically have the same answers and I find myself know shying from answering when another agent in my office answered because its duplicate content and looks silly, I think OR that we are cut throat but again we are independent contractors all looking for the same thing.  Call me selfish or foolish but I don't want to my office to rain on my AR parade!  With that being said,  I love it here and I wish AR much success in the future but I don't want to share you with my office.

Jeremy I have taken one of your courses and it has really helped my blog . This is so worth while. I look forward to the next one

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

Is there a recorded version of your class that experienced bloggers can check out to make sure we are covering all of the basics...and how about an advanced course or two?

Merry Christmas,

John

Posted by John Occhi, SRES,CPRES.ePRO - Temecula-Murrieta CA Real Estate (Mason Real Estate) over 8 years ago

What a great idea!  With the vast majority of our public starting their real estate journey on the web, we must be there.

 

Best regards and Merry Christmas from our nation's capital!

It sounds like this was a success. I missed it but will keep my eye out for the Basic Plus class. hahahahha!

This is a great service to many Realtors to get on board or be left behind.
