The independent trade portal, www.Globaledge.co.uk, has re-launched to reveal a brand new site providing networking and business opportunities for the international property industry. Features include business announcements, new development alerts, an interactive events calendar, plus other tools to help you to find partners and generate business globally.
It is free to sign up and on the site you can tailor your personal home page so that you only receive news and alerts that are relevant to your business. With the familiarity of Facebook, members can easily navigate around the site, adapting their preferences to receive news hot off the wire from specific countries, agents or developers plus utilising beneficial networking services such as an interactive events calendar.
Globaledge founder Ashley Rigg says the new site is a natural progression from its original position as a marketing portal for overseas property professionals. “When we launched the site this time last year, the aim was to help agents and developers do more business online. This hasn’t changed. The re-launch is about creating new ways for our international audience to do business. We want to be first place real estate agents and property developers come to meet new international partners and explore new markets”.
Since launching on December 4th last year, Globaledge has built a monthly audience of over 30, 000 unique users and was awarded ‘Best Partnership Product’ at the OPP Awards this week. “It’s a great platform to launch the new business. Over the past 12 months we’ve signed up over 3500 international agents and developers as registered users so there is already a base of potential partners for people to network with” says Rigg.
Globaledge plans to make money by charging users a small monthly fee for Premium membership which includes a package of benefits like the ability to enhance your company profile, soliciting business via the private messaging system (it’s free to receive messages) and for access to their most valuable consumer marketing data and insights. For agents looking to promote their best resale property to international partners, Premium membership also includes the facility to showcase resale deals on the homepages of interested members.
Globaledge are currently offering all new members a free trial 30 day trial of the Premium service.
