Estate agency industry figure Charlie Wright has finalised a series of roadshows, starting at the end of this month and running until early December, launching a new industry platform – an ‘all agent’ marketplace.
On Twitter, software supplier Wright asked: “Would you share your listings in return for free appraisal leads?”
One agenda item says: “How to remove your copyright material from the Property Marketplace before it goes live if you don’t wish to participate.”
He says that the roadshows will showcase the new business on a first come, first served basis, offering vendor and landlord leads “from the UK’s first all agent marketplace” which “aims to give agents back control of their businesses”.
Any agent attending one of the conferences will get early access to free vendor and landlord leads, before the official launch to consumers next year.
Wright tried to launch a new industry body CIELA, but failed to get sufficient support.
He has already presented his new business at an event in June that was open only to industry suppliers and seemed to focus on CRM.
Wright, who runs software company Easymatch, said that the aim of his new venture is simply to make home moving easier.
The agenda is as follows:
– How to offer movers the opportunity to volunteer “proceedability” criteria more easily
– How to handle new instruction leads fairly, in a way that leads to best results for all concerned
– What to pay, if anything, for new instructions won from vendor and landlord invitations to pitch, and when
– Our plans to promote higher fees for agents to the consumer
– How to integrate this with your portal leads
– How to remove your copyright material from the Property Marketplace before it goes live if you don’t wish to participate
– How we plan to raise high profile consumer awareness of the Agent and Property Marketplace
– How to direct more traffic to your own website
– How to use the “Book a viewing” and “Book a Valuation” widgets in your own site
– How some agents can use BestAgent without needing a CRM
– Connecting your existing CRM system
– Online offer processing
– “Instruct me online” idea
– ‘Proceedability’ profiles
– What options would be chargeable and how you would best like to pay
