Movebubble's Growth - How's it going so far in 2018?
At Movebubble, we’re on a mission to make renting better. We all know what a bad renting experience feels like… but don’t panic, we are here to build the future of renting.
Today, we expect an instant response, at any time of day. Movebubble is pioneering this in the rental industry, connecting people 24/7 via our mobile platform.
Well, it’s been an incredible start to 2018! Since the start of the year, Movebubble's growth has enabled us to help so many more renters. We recently celebrated 150,000 users!
Last month, we saw record growth with an amazing 240% increase in monthly users and 350% growth in leads. Now, with over 14% of Londoners choosing Movebubble as their preferred way to find a new home, we are hoping to build on this success! Sound good? Read on to find out what else Movebubble has been up to
Connecting tech-savvy millennials with properties
In a recent report from one of the major portals, they say that they saw a 7% decrease in leads but their revenues increased by 10%. They call it “quality above quantity”... or is this just the start of consumers changing their behaviour and renters finding better ways to move?
Unlike the portals, we’re connecting both sides of the market in a way that millennials love. They’re today’s tech-savvy “generation rent” and we know what makes them tick. Millennials hit the App Store as their one-stop-shop for solutions. They expect services to be accessible 24/7 and “pocket-sized”, and they want everything in one place. We know, because we're millennials too!
For many of our renters, it’s love at first sight! 1/3 of Movebubblers aren’t searching for property anywhere else. So far, in 2018, 80% of renters we asked said they'd recommend the app to a friend
We put renters at the heart of everything we do. With their help and collaboration, we make sure we build what they actually need. We’ve seen a 350% increase in renter property enquiries so far this year, and we know that around 50% of these enquiries are sent outside traditional office hours. We know our renters are busy at work and don’t have time to be talking on the phone during their 9-5 day. Movebubble enables renters to enquire and schedule viewings on their terms, typically getting a response in under 1 hour. It's a key feature for our partner agents, to make sure they never miss out on an enquiry.
Making renting pocket-sized
Nowadays, everyone is trying to connect with millennials, but are they really giving them what they want? Outstanding customer service is expected, and we are here to answer any question Movebubblers may have - any time of the day or week! Don’t believe us? Download the app and drop us a chat
We take all feedback on board, and assign it to our backlog of ideas, so the more votes coming in for a feature, the sooner we build it! Last month we released a brand new feature, exclusive to Movebubble…
Introducing... Movebubble Community Feedback! Too often, not all of the information about a property is available online, but we thought it was about time we let our renters set the record straight. For example; are pets allowed? Is the property actually available? Is it actually a shared property?! So if you want to see the most up to date information before you go on a viewing, make sure to check out the property on Movebubble first, because that's where the community are reporting the latest information. All feedback that's reported by a renter is shared for everyone to see.
We’re partnering with some of London best agencies. Charlotte, Director of Lettings at JLL told us, “Movebubble’s innovative technology allows JLL to connect and deliver a seamless service to the next-generation of renters.”
Long story short, we help agents connect with renters in the way they prefer to communicate, they can chat, schedule viewings and accept offers from anywhere, which helps them to spend less time tied to the office and more time doing deals!
Latest News: Tube Campaign and Brand Awareness
In the last few months, we’ve been testing underground advertising to work on Movebubble's growth and we’ve been super pleased with the results. We’re looking forward to partnering with Exterion Media again soon, it was a great channel for us and enabled us to help so many more renters!
Our campaign, #DoingItForRenters, was based around some scenarios that millennials can relate to - that point when they realise that they need to move home! Which was your favourite?
The campaign focussed on our core mission at Movebubble, doing everything for the renters to make renting better! To make it more interactive, we ran a fun selfie competition on Twitter, and one lucky renter won an iPhone X! Check out the hilarious selfies from the competition, and don’t worry, you can enter next time
We know collaboration is key to building an amazing app, plus, we love chatting to our community! In fact, we'd love to invite you to our event in March, so keep an eye on our Facebook page to find out how to get your name on the list. More details coming soon...
