In today’s tough business and financial climate, property portals around the world face challenging issues. These can include:
Where can I cut costs to ride out the financial storm?
Can I really compete with the market leaders?
Where do I get my next injection of funding?
Will the free to list models really work?
What impact will Google have on portal sites?
What new products are coming and should portal sites invest in them?
Answering these and other vital questions alone is not easy, so we thought we would hold a workshop to discuss them as a group. Property Portal Watch has teamed with the folk at Inman News to create Property Portal Watch Connect – a free, one day workshop for the owners and operators of property portals from around the world. Over 40 people from 15 different countries have already signed up to attend the workshop. It will be held on the 6th January 2009, at the Marriott Marquis Times Square, New York, the day before the Real Estate Connect NYC conference. Over the course of the day, we plan to run a series of sessions covering:
Property Portal Strategy
Sales and Marketing to Agents
Consumer Marketing to drive Traffic
Product Directions and Development
