It’s the Olympics! Which country are you rooting for? We have our eyes set on Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, and Singapore and of course, Australia.
The opening of the 30th Olympics was spectacular and the highlight of course was the latest James Bond girl, Queen Elizabeth II, alongside Daniel Craig, a.k.a. Bond, James Bond. Not forgetting good ol’ comedian Mr. Bean who got the crowd riled up with his antics.
With 26 sports played out over 28 days in 31 competition venues, 10,500 of the world’s best athletes from over 200 nations will compete for the gold medal in their respective sports. There can only be one winner and only the best will triumph ahead.
To some extent, the Olympics are quite similar to the online industry. Although the Olympics are only held once every four years and the quest to emerge the best portal is a daily battle, the outcome is the same – there can only be one clear and distinct winner to walk away with the gold medal.
Similar to being the best athlete, we too have to study our competition, understand what is required of us from the point of our consumers and competitors and from there continue to improve to meet these needs.
It is with that deep understanding, have we through the years emerged to be Asia’s No.1 property portal serving over 3,000,000 unique visitors that search over 700,000 property listings monthly. That in turn generates a total of 52 million pageviews and over 500,000 leads for our 20,000 agents.
Of course, we are No.1 because of you, so THANK YOU for your continuous support and for making us your portal of choice to list your listings and to find your dream home or next property investment.
To further expand our market share and provide our consumers with the opportunity to search for properties from around the world, we have formed a partnership with Australia’s best-known and most trusted real estate brand, LJ Hooker.
The partnership will see 50,000 sales listings published from over 690 LJ Hooker offices in Australasia on the iProperty Group’s network of property portals in Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Macau and Singapore.
This partnership is in line with our strategic mission to deliver more choice for our consumers who are in search of properties not only locally but increasingly abroad. So, if you are on the hunt for properties in Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Papua New Guinea, India, Japan and Vanuatu, you can now do so on any one of our portals.
Aside from that, I am also pleased to announce that Rumah123.com has emerged as the No.1 property portal in Indonesia in all key fronts.
The findings, verified by third party independent sources – Google AdPlanner, Effective Measure and Alexa.com, revealed that Rumah123.com has generated the highest unique visitors, pageviews and reach in May 2012. The findings also revealed that Rumah123.com has emerged the No.1 in the category of time on site spent by consumers. The percentage of users who accessed the property portal via their mobile also trumped ahead of other competitors.
From the team, we would like to take this opportunity to once again express our sincere thanks and appreciation to all our esteemed consumers and customers for enabling us to walk away with the Gold medal once again.
Have a great week ahead!
