Dang dang dang! I proofed this thing like three times. Yes it's real Deanna. Thanks for catching that. Will fix that typo now......

Have already had two discussions this morning with people that had a chance to fill it out and give us some feedback. We appreciate any time that people are willing to spend to help us set priorities of what to build and what to make better.

Yep, buying AR is a way to sell his company's products. It's his company so he can do what he likes.

I filled out.

Bob Stewart The issue w/ some of these surveys is that they are geared towards realtors...so in the future, you may need to create more answer choices.  

And, while I did fill out the survey already, a thought starter for you/Ben may be to create prods for complementary real estate fields, esp mortgage brokers.  (I get this may be a bit off strategy now, but it's just a thought starter.

I have not seen it, with or without the spelling error.  I see spelling errors in almost every blog I read.  Even mine!  Even spell check doesn't catch them all.

You guys are brutal. Ben buys a web site hoping there's a ready made client base for his products. He then soon discovers that it's almost impossible to monetize because the clients that would buy and actually use his products are nowhere to be found.

I just deleted it. I'm not a big fan of surveys. I don't care if he bought AR hoping he could sell members products and services. Isn't that what other members do when they post under " Resources / Product Reviews"?

No time for any questionaires. They generally lead to attempts to market a product or service to us that we do not need.

If the survey you guys are referring to is the short 4 question survey about Brivity or KWKLY then I got it and filled it out. If there was a more detailed survey I didn't received that one unless it went to spam.

On the one hand, I am appreciative of Ben and Bob. They will always get my benefit of the doubt.

I went to take the survey as I want to be helpful.

However, when the first thing you want is my detailed contact information, my only assumption is that I am going to be contacted by sales people. Do you guys have any idea how many sales calls and emails we already get? So I didn’t complete the survey.

 

I would suggest Ben put videos in Active Rain University about his various products so we can view them on demand if and when we want to. Videos from agents who have had success would be good as well if they are detailed about implementation.
