What was the biggest Social Media Mistake that I made: I was invited and did not join…
Can you guess, I was invited to join Active Rain by a blogger from Colorado late in 2006, who ironically is no longer on Active Rain? He was trying to tell me that this would be the best platform for the future. I was a bit skeptical and did not join.
Time was just ticking away; instead of joining Active Rain, I have already filled out my profile on MySpace and started collecting “friends” at the time I did not see the benefit of being on Active Rain as well. I did a little bit of interaction on MySpace and one day, I lost my password. Needless to say none of my “friends” ever inquired what happened, that was about eight or nine years ago….. I tried retrieving my password, but it required so much drama it was not worth the trouble, by now I am sure my profile has been deleted and BTW I do not remember any of my close friends J…..
Fast forward to July 10, 2007, I finally joined Active Rain and created my Profile and was slowly feeling out Active Rain. My intent was to see if I was going to stay and like the platform or fade away. Next I started reading Blog Posts and gingerly started to make comments. Then I was hooked, I began learning about Blogging, making friends and earning point.
Fast forward again, now to August 28th 2008 and my first blog post was created. So as you can see my first Social Media Mistake was not to join Active Rain when I was asked. Then coupled with not knowing what to do I was a part-timer for over a year and some….
Since then, I have learned about generating international clients from all parts of the Globe. Just to name a few: home buyers from China, Condominium Sellers from Japan, home Buyers and Sellers from Israel. In addition, I have received land and home buyers from Italy, Germany and France to name a few places from the European continent. They all wanted to buy homes, land and investment property in Los Angeles and vicinity such as Malibu and Beverly Hills (to name a few of the communities. The best part was, they found me because of Active Rain. I have also received many Relocation buyers from all over the United States, because they learned that I am also a Relocation Specialist in the Los Angeles area. The best part is I have also helped a lot of Pet Friendly Clients find homes for sale and even for lease, because the word is out, that I am a Pet Friendly Realtor in the Greater Los Angeles area.
So looking back, as the saying goes I wish I would have joined Active Rain in 2006 and by now I would have more happy international buyers and seller of property in the Greater Los Angeles area.
Currently I am the #1 Agent in Beverly Hills on Active Rain. I am also #6 in Los Angeles County on Active Rain and #24 in California on Active Rain.
Quick Tip: if you have been invited to Active Rain there is no sense wondering, join and do not make the mistake I have made! The good news it is never too late to join Active Rain.
