  • Selling?We advertise on

    10 years ago, when Rightmove was in its infancy, agents who were earlyadopters of the internet could rightly feel one step ahead of their localrivals as long as they had a presence online. Whether that was their ownwebsite or membership of Rightmove or a similar portal offering, did notseem particularly crucial. The theory was that you needed an internetstrategy in order to unlock a worldwide audience of potential buyers, andfew troubled themselves with questioning how well the site functioned orhow much user-traffic it actually attracted. For most it was about ticking abox, while, in reality, the industry would carry on as normal, advertisingand selling houses through newspapers like it had been done with littlechange for the last 100 years or so. 10 years can seem like a long time,especially in the housing market, but that should not disguise the pace ofchange of this media revolution and just how dramatically the internet haschanged our everyday lives not to mention the impact on the way agentsseek to promote their properties and communicate their proposition toboth buyers and potential sellers.


  • Rightmove

    RM 141RM 141

    Fast forward to 2010, and its not whether agentsadvertise on the internet or not, but how they look.On the internet, just as on the High Street,appearances really do matter. What all potentialsellers want to know is: How will you make myproperty look? The biggest marketplace forproperty on the internet is Rightmove andtherefore the most critical place to create the rightimpression and gain a competitive edge.

    In the busiest marketplace, two things are crucialin creating the right impression and standing out:quality of property presentation, and effectivelyand efficiently servicing enquiries. The seminarsbeing run by Rightmove at EAE will highlight someof the best practice being used by the mosteffective agents, as well as sharing some exclusiveresearch into seller behaviours. We will also bepreviewing some of the latest developments inRightmoveplus to help give those agentsattending a further competitive edge.

    In the web dominated world of 2010, Rightmoveprovides agents with a virtual shop window. Wekeep it clean and bright and work hard to ensure itis the portal of choice for the vast majority ofagents potential customers. The challengingmarket combined with home movers morediscerning expectations (partly driven by thetransparency of the internet) makes it vital thatagents are able to differentiate themselves andstand-out in this new media world of majorcompetitive importance.

    Whilst it wont replace attending the Rightmoveseminar at the EAE, heres what the attendees at previous Rightmove seminars held across the UK have said they found especially valuable learning points:

    Potential sellers and prospective landlords statethat property portals are the most useful place todo their research before inviting an agent out

    The speed of your reply to an e-mail enquiry isimportant to impressthough the content ofyour reply is critical too

    Agents who use and present facts and figuresfrom the reports in Rightmoveplus say they arecrucial to persuading sellers and landlords toinstruct them at the right price - and to helpachieve subsequent price reductions

    How an agent stands out and presents their brandand their properties on the internet is a majorinfluence in attracting not only the right buyersand tenants, but also the right potential sellers and landlords.

    The content of Rightmoves seminars includes whatwe believe is the largest piece of research carriedout with landlords and sellers, and provides avaluable insight into their likes and dislikes, as well as common mistakes and top tips. Who betterto listen to and learn from than landlords andsellers themselves?

  • The information is relayed to the Lap Tops,iPhone and iPads, of the England staff andenables them to make more educateddecisions on the management of the team.By using this real time system effectively,they can make calls on the game, duringthe game, track dips in performance andreact accordingly.

    By using this system to its full benefit andunderstanding their teams performance indetail, they can give themselves an edge inan extremely competitive field. They useevery bit of information.

    Prior to its introduction, coaches wouldhave made decisions such as substitutionsbased on perception, their gut feel. Nowthey can make the right decisions havingbeen presented with accurate data.

    The leading football teams use Prozone andOpta, to get similar insights into theperformance of their team and also theteams they are competing against.

    PROZONE TELL US:Effective post-match analysis provides theplatform for objective insight intoperformance that enables coaches tosupplement their own intuition withscientific information.

    Post-match analysis can be used to identifystrengths and weaknesses in both playerand team performance and allows you tocreate and adapt effective trainingprogrammes and manage specific areas inneed of improvement.

    Opta provide a pre-match oppositionreport which highlights previous meetingsand recent match data including penaltyanalysis.

    In Rowing, coaches and athletes alike usethe Peach system to quantifyimprovements in technique andperformance and providing valuablefeedback particularly from un-coachedoutings. In the forthcoming Olympic gamesthe Rowing team will also be using awireless system created by McLaren'sApplied Technology arm that measures therelationship between paddle, boat andathlete. Their spokesperson said:

    "It means the coach is freed up to reflect onwhat is going on and the time he wouldhave spent analysing huge amounts of datais freed up to do other things. That frees upimagination and that's really hard toquantify. Data and numbers help youchange athletes' behaviour."

    SO HOW DOES THIS TRANSLATE TOESTATE AGENCY PERFORMANCE?Simply this. That attention to detail andusing technology analysis to give you theedge can be the difference between goodperformance and exceptional performance.

    We rely on our gut feel or gut instinct anawful lot, but if there are facts and dataavailable, then surely we should trust them.Gut feel or perception is all very well, but ifyou have at your fingertips a more accuratereliable picture, you will have the edge overyour competitors.

    There is no doubt that technology can giveus the edge in sport and in business. IfRoger Federer was using the same woodentennis racket that Bjorn Borg used, I doubthe would be anywhere near his record 16grand slam titles.

    But having the technology is not enough.The best agents dont just have the bestsoftware, they use all the tools available tothem, day in day out, relentlessly, to trackperformance to the point where it becomestheir great strength. They have a watchfuleye on the business metrics and identifywhat is going well and what needs fixingbefore it becomes a serious issue.

    Can you imagine the England Rugby teamhaving all that info but not looking at theiriPads during the game? Or allowing somemembers of the team not to wear theirtracking device? Can you imagine apremiership goalkeeper who doesnt knowwhere the competitors penalty kick takernormally places them?

    There are some agents that manage tostand out head and shoulders above therest and their profits simply underline theirattention to detail and their ability to notjust have the latest technology but to use it effectively.

    In the recent England rugby teams victory over theAustralians, some of the credit for their success wasgiven to the digital monitors and GPS system used to keep tabs on the players. This impressive newtechnology tracks each player, monitoring theirwellbeing and giving the coaches and analysts a detailed breakdown of their performance.
