Despite the fact that it was the holy month of Ramadan, which is usually a quieter time of year, August turned out to be full-on here at propertyfinder.ae. You will have already read in the blog that the whole team was busy coordinating the ‘Meals for Workers’ project in which we collected Dh60,000 to buy 4000 iftar meals for labourers, thanks to the amazing donations of our partners.
August also saw us welcome on board our brand new Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Ali Syed. Hailing from the UK, Ali brings a wealth of experience in web, mobile and video technology, solutions architecture and technical project management. He will play a major role in the site’s exciting future development and we are delighted to have him in the team!
Despite what most people believe, it seems summer is in fact the ideal time to find a property in the UAE! July and August 2012 was a very busy period for propertyfinder.ae and we sent more enquiries to our brokers than ever before and hit lots of traffic records.
We are always investing in the growth of the site and our brand which leads to more visitors and a better return for our clients. Check out our growth compared to summer 2011:
- Visits up 103%
- Pageviews up 66%
- Unique users up 102%
- Property enquiries up 157%
- Organic traffic up 225%
- Direct traffic up 94%
- Search results page views up 112%
And the growth goes on….
September is already getting extremely busy and we expect to break more records. So make sure your properties are on the site, up-to-date and looking good. Properties with good photos and proper descriptions are getting all the enquiries – so make your ads count!
