A Call to All Members – ActiveRain University Wants You!

ActiveRain University Wants You!!

Now that the ActiveRain University is underway providing training and support sessions for our members, we want to send out this invitation to ALL members inviting them to come present at our new on-line campus.  We are looking for volunteer members who wish to share their knowledge, successes, and “how-to’s” with the rest of the community.  We already have a few interested members who are willing and want to come share their secrets and tips on what has made them successful using their Blogs, Internet Marketing, and Social Media skills.

In the weeks ahead, we are inviting Special Guest Speakers, Presenters, and Trainers that are very influential in the Industry.  Folks who are in the trenches using their knowledge and experience to benefit in today’s economy and Real Estate Market, and who are excited about coming to join us and share.  At some point soon, we will also open up sessions and classes for some of our AR Business Builders and Vendors to come in and share how to use their products and services more effectively and efficiently.

We already have our first ActiveRain member, Jennifer Martin who has agreed to come share with you, her insights and experience which stemmed from a comment she left on Kerrie Greenhalgh’s “Success in the RAIN” Blog post.  The date and time for her class will be this Friday at 3:00pm (see calendar for pre-registration)

Here is a link to our Speaker/Trainer Registration form.  Just a couple things we need to know so that we can schedule you into a classroom on the dates and times you request.  We’ll also need your presentation topic that you’d like to share so we can setup the appropriate environment and tools you may need.  It’s a very easy going and relaxed campus, each presenter or trainer has up to an hour.  We suggest 45 minute classes allowing 15 minutes at the end for Q&A.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

The Calendar and all class details are located at ActiveRain University.

This invitation is open to ALL members regardless of which segment of the Industry you represent.  Title Companies, Stagers, Home Warranty, Inspectors etc., you’re all welcome to come “profess” and share.

So if this “calling” has your ears burning, or the excitement and thought of teaching, presenting, or sharing is keeping you up at night, then ActiveRain University Wants You. Come volunteer, and be a part of this exciting new addition to ActiveRain.  Thanks.  🙂

ActiveRain Now on iTunes

I was just notified that the Inter-Active ActiveRain Business Card is now available on iTunes.   Last week, I posted a video on how the app works and received a great response from many of you iPhone users.  That’s not to say I didn’t hear from the BlackBerry Crowd too!  lol~ 
As promised, I said it was coming…now it’s here.

There is already more functionality, a new mortgage calculator, and a feature that allows iPhone 3G users to click on a button while in front of a property, (or in a specific neighborhood), that returns them a google map geocoded with the location, photo, and details of that property. 

I love this stuff, I think other iPhone users will too.

How Do I get it?

To get yourself a copy to check out, or test on your iPhone, just go to the iTunes store on your MAC or PC, and in the “Search” box, type “ActiveRain” and viola!  It only takes seconds to install, and I think you’ll enjoy some of these first features. (you may find a couple “rain radio” podcasts on iTunes as a bonus…shhh)

If you’re an iPhone owner, you can download a copy of this app RIGHT HERE.  It’s easy to do, and it’s FREE.  You can also download it directly from your iPhone buy clicking the “AppStore Icon” then the “Search Tab” with “ActiveRain” as your search.  I’d love to solicit your reviews, comments, and opinions over at the iTunes store.  Once you’ve download the application, you’ll see a button for “reviews” at iTunes, your feedback and support over there is appreciated, but only if you have the spare time. 🙂

Getting My Own Customized App

Getting this application customized for you and your company or business will be easy.  There’ll be a launching of the site wizard this next week, giving you the capability to create one of these for your own iPhone.  I’ll have a post giving instructions and details on how to do this sometime next week.

Thanks for sharing in all the excitement with me, it’s been a long time coming, and now I finally get to share it back.  Take a moment and check it out, then you can decide how you’d want your own iPhone Business Card App to work.  Or… you can just use mine to work and play in the “RAIN!”  Enjoy!
