Estate Agents ….could your Council damage you business

Estate Agents business have been changed forever by the internet, with online searches accounting for the major share of home sales. But how many people contact your office because they have seen your Branded Estate Agents Boards emblazoned with your telephone number or because they have scanned the QR Code giving direct access to the property details on your website. This group of people are not searching on the web, but chance buyers who have been made aware of a pending property sale by great cost effective advertising by your agency. But what if your council banned your most cost effective advertising tool, your Branded Estimate Agents Board. How would this effect your business ? Over the year the government have imposed more and more legislation on Estate Agents with stringent sizes of boards that can be displayed. For Sale Boards can be placed on property the Estate Agents are selling or renting out with a time limit of 14 days after the sale date for removal of the boards. Councils are banning the boards, classing them as a blot on the landscape. A growing list of Councils,Westminster, Kensington,Hammersmith, Lincoln, Hastings, Preston, Bath, Newcastle and Leeds have banned the For Sale Board after successful application to the government. It is reported that Mr Mark Hayward, chief executive of National Association of Estate Agents has called on Councils not to ban the For Sale Boards asking Councils to enforce the existing planning rules. Estate Agents should act responsibly to avoid the ban spreading by siting For Sale Boards only on property that is listed for sale with them. For those of you in banned areas there are ways around the ban. Promote events within the area with participants placing Branded boards advertising the event on their property. Adhesive free Printed window stickers advertising posters applied to the inside of the glazing. Property with lawns can have printed Graphics applied and removed without damage. Floor graphics can be applied to concrete or tarmac drive ways within the property Boundary.This product can easily be removed after the sale of the property and can even have an over sticker applied when the sale is complete.

QR codes – what are they all about?

You’re bound to have seen them around – those little black-and-white pixelated squares that seem to be cropping up more and more often lately. But just what are they? QR codes, or mobile tags, is the answer. A QR (that’s Quick Response) code is like a barcode that can be read by applications on certain mobiles and smartphones that, when scanned, will take you directly to a mobile version of a website (you can try it for yourself here).

The codes were created in Japan and are now becoming very popular in Europe too. When scanned by a reader (easily downloaded onto iPhones and Android devices and often pre-installed on many mobile platforms), the codes can lead to a mobile website, location information, a voucher code or special offer, contact details or even a trailer for a film. They can carry several hundreds of times the amount of data carried by ordinary barcodes thanks to their ability to be read in both horizontal and vertical directions.

QR codes can now be found on t-shirts, posters, business cards, the sides of buildings (see the skyscraper in Tokyo that has been turned into a giant QR code) and have even started to be used as artwork. They are being used more frequently in the gaming world, where players of the PlayStation 3 game Little Big Planet 2 can generate and print a code for every level in the game, and hold the code up to the PlayStation Eye camera to be taken directly to that level. The Nintendo 3DS Mii Maker application can generate a code for any Mii so that it can be published or shared on the internet, and the game Defense Grid: The Awakening (used in the Portal 2 ARG campaign) even has a level shaped like a QR code.

Any business can take advantage of the new technology and show off their tech knowledge through the use of a QR code. Add them to your posters, business cards and promotional material and give customers quick access to product details, contact information and special offers. The codes can be easily generated using sites such as Kaywa, and it’s even possible to add a logo into the code (provided your code has a high enough error correction margin).
