Real Estate Marketing Rainmaker
After having heard all of this interesting jazz about Google+, I too wanted to join to see what it was all about. The only problem was that I couldn't find an invite. So I took it to the source, and within minutes..... ta da! I got invited!

I got invited because I already use gmail as my default email.
I don't have gmail and althought I'd like to check this out......the last thing I need is another email account.
@Pacita- I know, and the fact that it worked was even better.
@Ann- I don't know if you even need a gmail acct?
The friends circles feature is pretty cool though.
Love your proactive attitude!!!
What a great idea ~ We think we deleted our invite. Is it worth the hype yet?
send me your email address.
or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Great for you Michael for thinking outside of the box!
Looking for the invite too!
Attended the Regional 1 Women's Council of REALTORS meeting in Tennessee this past weekend and Google Plus was discussed. Awesome meeting and lots of social media education!
Give updates on how you like the platform!
I don't remember who or how I was invited.
@diana- send me your email and I'll send you an invite. my email is on the sign in the pic. See you on G+ :)
There are a lot of really cool featured on G+
Michael LOL that's alittle easier for you since you are near their geographic headquarters :) we got ours last week from a fellow AR REALTOR who we follow on twitter :)
@jeff & grace- What is your favorite feature on G+? Have you established you Vanity Google+ URL yet? If not check out my last how-to blog. http://actvra.in/f7C see you in the [plus side]
There are certainly easier ways to have gotten it, but none as much fun! Congrats.
@sandy you should've seen the looks I got from people driving by :)
LOL... great idea! I just asked on Facebook for my invite. Been playing around with it... at little difficult to understand at first. But I like the drag/drop circles for visualizing your groups. MUCH easier than Facebook.
I may have deleted mione, too. Something odd showed one time when I opened gmail, and I just clicked out. Oh well.
Michael - Very clever indeed. got my invite from anothe Active Rain member and am greatful to her. She knows who she is. Thanks Now to get over the learning curve a bit.
I could've probably been successful asking my FB friends for one, but when I saw a guy asking for money on the corner near my work.... I had this BRILLIANT idea! lol
I'll take it to Google and ask them.
Check out IMSD's fanpage to get the newest reviews and tips for Google+ -they are fantastic!
You rock inside or outside the box!
Great idea Michael. Any chance you could send us some invites? (Gabe at GabeSanders dot com)
Ok, I need an invite so I can see what the hype is all about. i'm emailing you now.
@Gabe & @ MeLisa they are on the way. Don't forget to circle up with me! ;)
Thanks for the invite Michael, got it!
@Bonnie! you'll have to get this shirt too.
@gabe! Right on. Now "go nuts" and get your profile completely setup.... but dont forget to connect with me! :o)
AWESOME!! Me want one too!! email@example.com
@stephanie just sent it! :o)
If only that avenue was open to most of us....I am excited for Google + to open its business version. Having used Google + for social avenues, I see how useful it can be for business contacts. I am excited to see what it holds for Real Estate future
You are CRAZY smart!
@maya- thank you :o)
I got invited but have not done anything besides accepting the invitation. Now we need a tutorial blog on what to do with Google + ?
Awesome post, love the photo! To me Google+ is more of a replacement of LinkedIn than Facebook. I am using is as a professional network to connect with others in my industry. How are you using it?
@Ann check out IMSD's fanpage, they're always are my first place for the newest scoop on technology.
@WIN- right now I am getting used to the circles and feed trends, I would recommend you too check out IMSD's fanpage to check out what they do with it. They had a great webinar with @TechSavvyAgent- Chris Smith & IMSD's Chad Hyams!
Thanks for the comments! See you on the PLUS SIDE!
Ok, I need to bookmark this to follow up later
Michael - That was funny and creative, and even better, it worked too.
I joined it last week. So far, I have not had time to do anything with it though.
I spent too much time today getting my profile in order. But after using it, I'm seeing a lot of positives. LOL... I didn't even look at Facebook today. (Sorry Mark Zuckerberg)
Great idea going directly to the source. Coming from a Social Media standpoint though, the best place you could have gone was to Twitter and put it out on the twitter-waves (not even sure if that's a coined term yet). The beauty of Twitter is search.twitter.com. We spent a couple days last week scrolling through tweets of people either offering invites to google+ or desiring invites. Anyone that wanted one, we left them a @mention to either e-mail us or to tweet us their e-mail.
From those 2 days, we gained over 40 followers and invited over 60 people to google+. It was a great way to get our company's name out there. search.twitter.com is probably one of the greatest listening devices out there, and from my understanding in the Real Estate trade, very under-utilized.
Michael, and anyone else on here with a google+ account. Would love to add you to my circles... you can find me at gplus.to/iammkstevens
Great Idea!!!! I just sent an email for an invite. How do I get a Google me T Shirt?????
