REW Moving To Retainer Model For 2019 Professional Services

Morgan Carey posted this 1,087 Views

If there is one thing that I have learned in providing professional services these last 20 years, it's that setting expectations is everything.  If you do it right, your customers will hopefully appreciate and respect you. Even if they don’t like what they hear, they tend to appreciate the transparency and honesty.   If you don’t do it, or you get it wrong, your customers will be frustrated and upset.  Today, I’d like to talk about the future of...

Custom Work Forecasting At REW - An inside look at how things work

Morgan Carey posted this 1,162 Views

So this month I decided to join our sales manager in a really fun sales contest against our entire sales team. You can read about the contest at this facebook post (please feel free to share). As I've started to discuss projects (especially large custom projects or upgrades) the subject of the "queue" comes up. IE what is the wait time to get a project started / completed?People are often surprised by the answer (and that is there is a pretty long waiting list) and someone today asked me ...

Sell me on the App! Customer AMA

Morgan Carey posted this 2,220 Views

At Real Estate Webmasters, we are constantly creating new features and tools. I was recently in a conversation with one of our most progressive and innovative clients Davis Bass from Florida (we were discussing REW's new "Home Search App") and he challenged me with this question: "Sell me on the App" As I replied to him, I realized that this was probably a question many folks are going to ask, so I decided to put some additional effort into a more robust response—one that all REW ...

Booj acquired by RE/MAX; some initial thoughts

Morgan Carey posted this 5,537 Views

For those of you who don't know, one of REW's smaller competitors in the enterprise space, Booj, has just recently been announced as acquired by RE/MAX.   I've actually known about this deal for quite a while, but I didn't want to publish as, honestly, the founder of Booj, Ido, is someone I actually think is a good guy and he deserves his exit.   Now that it's out there though, I think it's time to talk about it.   I mean, it's an o...

Virtual Reality Website, Extended Trade Up Your Tech, Old Software Deprecation and More

Morgan Carey posted this 18 13,933 Views

In one week, we will be launching the world's first website that offers a virtual reality feature set for both main page presentation and listings details pages. Truly, this is our biggest innovation in website design at REW ever and I am so excited!  My vision is this: You roll up on a listing presentation a few minutes early with a 360 / VR camera (relatively inexpensive under $1,000 for a good one)—before going in, you put down a tripod in a nice location, and you take a 360...

Many folks are familiar with our "dedicated developer" program (and some are not) - but what most folks are NOT familiar with is many of the enhancements and processes we have adapted thanks to the addition of our REW Enterprise program. We have been building / testing this new platform for nearly 2 years now, and have seen tremendous improvements in both throughput and project quality. As such, we have decided it is time that we share this new, advanced project methodology with the larger p...

Innovation and Luggage - one of REW's CORE values explained

Morgan Carey posted this 4,060 Views

At Real Estate Webmasters Inc we have 3 Core Values:  Customer Success : Innovation : Always Be Awesome. These values are critical to our mission and our culture. Recently the management team has asked me to articulate and communicate these values for our staff for a new internal feedback tool we're working on.  While taking on innovation - I realized that, while the basic definition is easy to grasp - "real life" application of the value is not as apparent to those wh...
