A new social network PropertyHeads.com, has been developed to provide public buyers with “an easy to use collaborative social setting to make more informed choices around the right property, tradesmen and estate agents for them”.
PropertyHeads aims to help property businesses generate greater numbers of leads and recommendations – it currently serves 50,000 users per month. Ben Davis, CEO of PropertyHeads, says,
“We know how hard it can be for reputable suppliers and tradespeople across the UK to set themselves apart from the competition. So we designed PropertyHeads to be the perfect platform for the best businesses to get noticed by as many people as possible. In fact, it’s the only website specifically built to help property businesses create more word-of-mouth leads, more repeat business and more business from recommendations.”
Anyone know a good plumber?
Word of mouth is one of the preferred ways to find a builder, plumber, estate agent or the best neighbourhoods to move to – PropertyHeads.com is the UK’s first website to proactively match the public with firms that friends and connections already use and trust. It suggests estate agents and other property businesses based on how connected they are to the user. They have also developed a tradesman blacklist. Currently, PropertyHeads.com includes over 10,000 property businesses including estate agents and professional traders and over 100,000 properties. These numbers will continue to grow organically as more users and businesses interact via the social network.
Says Ben, “We have already received a great deal of interest from businesses and tradespeople across the country, and those that have begun using PropertyHeads.com have provided us with some invaluable feedback. We’re incredibly excited for our public launch and for more people to be able to find tradespeople they can trust.”
