write blog posts with quality content that will catch the eye of the "bots"..... the most important first step is to become a "rainmaker"....without that status, you will have no other options other than networking....

For me, the FAQ's do the best. I write in depth articles that rank well on google for q's that my customers frequent ask while googling.

For me:   specific market reports -- specific subdivisions, condo/townhome projects

Barbara Todaro is right.  If you choose to be successful here - you will want to have a Rainmaker account -- your potential audience will be far greater.

Beau Mueller I'd say, Localism posts on ActiveRain do drive lots of traffic to your site - followed by market reports and listings.

None.  I have never received a single real "lead" from Active Rain.  I do get a lot of spam which I suspect comes from this site.
