Agents around the UK sign up to join social media initiative #AgentsHereToHelp

first_imgHome » COVID-19 support » Agents around the UK sign up to join social media initiative #AgentsHereToHelp previous nextAgencies & PeopleAgents around the UK sign up to join social media initiative #AgentsHereToHelpKristjan Byfield says he’s gathering social media savvy estate agents together to help the public during the crisis and change public attitudes.Nigel Lewis1st April 20202 Comments1,927 Views Leading industry figure Kristjan Byfield has invited estate agents from around the UK to join him in a new initiative to launch a support campaign for the public around the social media hashtag #AgentsHereToHelp.This, he says, is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for estate agents to improve how they are perceived.Byfield, who runs London estate agency Base Property Specialists, is in the process of establishing a Facebook page where agents can host live Q&A style events.During these, consumers can ask questions about the property market and agents can share their knowledge and experience.He has already persuaded 20 estate agencies to sign up to the project and commit to hosting one live event a month.These include agencies such as David Lee, Keller Williams, Roseberry Newhouse, Danelaw Real Estate, Maurice Kilbride, NestledIn, Normie & Co, Jackie Oliver & Co, McDowalls, Mr Green, Ferndown, Robinson Michael & Jackson, Logic Estates, GoView, Dreamview, Stones and franchisees of both Fine & Country and Belvoir, as well as his own company.“In these uncertain times, people are desperate for help and information – especially when it comes to their home,” he says.“Trapped indoors, trawling social media and the news- but rarely finding the answers they want or need.“I feel passionately, therefore, that there is currently a unique opportunity for agents to come together and engage with the public like never before on social media.“That is why I am calling for agents and suppliers to back our #AgentsHereToHelp initiative.”Register your details here: https://forms.gle/GLVPSXEKkDvvSUM1ARead more about Kristjan Byfield. Roseberry Newhouse Danelaw Real Estate NestledIn Normie & Co Jackie Oliver & Co McDowalls Mr Green Ferndown Logic Estates GoView Dreamview Stones maurice kilbride Kristjan Byfield Keller Williams Robinson Michael & Jackson David Lee April 1, 2020Nigel Lewis2 commentsAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 2nd April 2020 at 8:15 amA really good initiative, as a real estate and proptech analyst and consultant I deal with hundreds of agents and tech companies, and giving good advice and sharing ideas is my main driver.It is good that some agents realise that they need a forum to ‘talk’ to their customer base, as I have always advised clients for years that they need an ever evolving inclusive social media voice – and a social media pair of ears to listen to the valuable data customers provide.Obviously, the current situation is making some agents realise that consumers are always on social media, and the odd Facebook post, is not going to cut it. There is a need to position your business as an industry leader.Many will know that I am an avid fan of LinkedIn, why? It is a forum that allows direct access to everyone in the proptech and real estate industry globally. By posting thoughtful, intelligent content, I showcase my skill set, which in turn advertises my company Proptech-PR, which in turn brings me business.Typically I get eight to ten thousand people reading my posts, that sounds a small number, but the quality of the readership is world class, literally hundreds of industry leaders. I am not saying they all like me or agree with me, but they know I exist. Also they comment and collaborations and business follows.Like anything, social media takes time, when I started it took maybe four months of a daily routine posting and contacting people before I saw any return, now 95% of my business comes directly from doing this. And it costs me less than £50 a month. So the return on investment is off the page.My advice, Q’s & A’s in a forum as Kristjan suggests is a start, but any good agency should have a fully integrated social media programme in place, and one of the newest and best is Brightbee.co – Niven Chinasamy & Nick Borjlind, a great solution.Log in to Replyben davis, PropertyHeads PropertyHeads 1st April 2020 at 2:38 pmGreat initiative!

Eli Apple, Raiders unable to agree on a deal; Apple remains a free agent

first_imgNFL FAs 2020: Ranking top 50 players, best by position, tracking signingsApple, 24, has shown promise in his four NFL seasons with three interceptions and 33 passes defensed, but he has also struggled to play without getting flagged. He led the Saints with 11 called penalties in 2019 and 10 called penalties in 2018 after joining the team in Week 8, ESPN noted.Apple was set to join a Raiders defense that had already signed former Bears linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski, former Rams linebacker Cory Littleton, former Cowboys defensive tackle Maliek Collins, former Cowboys safety Jeff Heath and former Buccaneers defensive end Carl Nassib. Now, he’ll have to go back to the drawing board and find another new team. A little more than two weeks after it was reported that Eli Apple was signing with the Raiders, it turns out the two parties were unable to agree to terms, leaving Apple still an unrestricted free agent.ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Apple had agreed to a one-year contract with the Raiders on March 18, and Apple himself posted the agreement on Instagram, saying he was “excited to start a new journey as a Raider.” The post has since been deleted, and on Thursday, Schefter reported the deal had fallen through. He did not provide a reason.last_img read more
