My name is Robert Newman. I am a professional online marketer that focus's on Real Estate. I paid $199.00 for a one-year membership to active rain. I use this platform for two reasons.
#1. Introduce real estate professionals to my content (I am not currently selling any services).
#2. Create industry specific backlinks to both my content and a select handful of Realtors that I use to an employee the scientific method RE: Online Marketing strategies for Realtors.
Active rain allows a small amount of its domain value to be transferred by paying members VIA links. In laymen's terms, it extremely valuable from an SEO perspective to write a blog here on Active Rain and "link" to your website. The link generated is low value but comes from a domain with a high degree of trust AND is related to real estate. You can produce many of these links and aim them at each new piece of content that you create. You'll just have to take my word for it that $199.00 is an incredibly low price to pay for an unlimited amount of targeted backlinks.
HOWEVER use your WordPress blog that has your IDX to do your serious blogging. Every realtor should have an active rain account. But use it to support longer form content on your primary blog. Just these two strategies will get you pretty good traction for Google in most Markets. For the SEO value alone I give Active Rain 5 stars. There are many other benefits...but they had me at "unlimited amount of targeted do-follow links.".
