Moneypenny is proud to be supporting New Homes LIVE 14, which promises to be an inspirational day of learning and networking for new homes professionals. Being held at the Congress Centre in London on Friday 24th October, this event offers take-home value whether you are a new homes developer or an estate agent with a new homes department.

Showcasing research and innovations from both UK and international developers, the world-class presenters will explore industry specific statistics from the 2014 Home Moving Trends Survey (the biggest independent survey in the industry), as well as sharing key behaviours and expectations from potential buyers and how you can use digital platforms for effective engagement with them. Let’s take a look at the presenters:

  • Digital marketing expert Dan Hare will show the top five items you should be focussing on, and provide tips on how to improve your digital marketing.
  • James Dearsley, international writer and speaker on futuristic elements of property marketing, will show you that tools, such as Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and 3D printing, are closer than you might think.
  • Grant Leboff will share the shortcomings of the traditional marketing model and explain the key ways in which you can replace them with sales and marketing messages that really work for today’s consumer.
  • Susan Hallam will demonstrate how you can make digital strategy work for you, rather than being a slave to technology. Using case studies and practical examples, you will learn effective ways to become a successful digital leader.

Following 2013’s event, Brian McWhinnie of Persimmon Homes said, “Excellent overview of marketing new homes. Great titbits along the way and thought provoking.” Kyle Hogg from Foxtons agreed from an agent’s perspective: “As an agent it was great to glean greater knowledge on how developments are looking to move their business forward. All speakers and topics were excellent.”

Here at Moneypenny we are supporting a growing number of house-builders, to ensure they never miss a telephone call and capture every opportunity. Chris Warner, Sale Director of award-winning Antler Homes explains how engaging Moneypenny has been an important decision for the business:

“A web report highlighted that we had been missing calls to our developments and customer care team, some out of our normal show home hours or on days we were closed. I met Samantha Jones of Moneypenny at New Homes Live and as a result trialled the service as it seemed to offer the complete service for our needs in order to be a true extension of Antler Homes.

“Now our Moneypenny Receptionist, Lucy, emails messages and enquiries to us, enabling us to respond immediately, wherever we are. Moneypenny extends our perceived opening hours during the week by taking calls out of hours and we now have weekends covered too, ensuring we never miss a call, even if our buyers are calling from abroad.

“Just one call could result in a sale enquiry or a happier customer.”
