Active Rain just hit a milestone ~ 200,000 members!
I've been keeping an eye on this number as it moved up, and was guessing that we wouldn't hit this number until Valentine's day.
When I joined (with 100 total points,) in July of 2007, there were 41,000 real-estate-related professionals in this wonderful community. (EDIT: I may have that number wrong; see Mike Jaquish's comment below)
How did I find AR? I found it in an article on Inman News. Reading that article, I thought to myself "I'll bet I can do this. I wonder if it will bring me business?"
I found that I could do it, and I've blogged pretty consistently since then. Today, about half of my business comes from Active Rain referrals.
When my phone rings, and the person on the line says "I found you on the internet," I know that they found me because of Active Rain. I have no other internet presence or advertising.
CONGRATULATIONS, ACTIVE RAIN! ...AND THANK YOU!
