Margaret Rome had posted yesterday about not being average and how “averages” in Real Estate are basically meaningless. She also mentioned the old “rule of thumb” of 80/20 and how this is actually more like 93/7. I have to say I agree 100% with her comments. Just to prove her point, I have a real life example, taken from ActiveRain. This blew me away by the way. I have been fortunate enough to have 22 people sign up under me in the last 10 days.
One of them, Joe Sampson, joined 3 days ago, when there were approximately 6,900 hundred members of ActiveRain. Just by completing a full profile and adding a photo he is now number 711 in the system. 711!!!! That’s in the top 11% just by completing a profile. No posts. No comments.
Now I don’t know about you, but I find that incredible. That means that almost 90% of our members have not even done a complete profile page. 90%. So I guess the 93/7 rule is alive and well on ActiveRain.
So to all you new members, don’t be intimidated by the amount of members. It is very easy to rise near the top. Complete your profile, add a photo, start blogging and commenting and join the 7% that will be successful on this network. Good luck and enjoy the journey.
