ZOOPLA GAINS 300% INCREASED CONVERSIONS WITH TRAVELTIME

Zoopla integrated TravelTime in May 2014, giving their users the ability to search for properties by time, as well as distance. The result? 300% more conversions.

zoopla.co.uk

Launched in 2008, Zoopla is one of the UK’s leading property websites, giving users the tools they need to make the best possible property decisions with ease and transparency.

In March 2015, just 10 months after launching TravelTime, Zoopla reported 300% more conversions – users who had booked viewing appointments – as opposed to those searching for properties by distance. By delivering more relevant results more often, Zoopla has given its customers the tools they need to make well-informed decisions, and feel more confident about where they should and shouldn’t buy.

HOW IT WORKS
TravelTime filters out misleading results and only delivers those relevant to the users. For example, a mile in the suburbs may only take 5 minutes by car, but in the city it could be up to an hour – something that searching by distance doesn’t take into account. It also neglects locations that are further away but have fast transport links, potentially overlooking areas that could be of interest to the prospective buyer.

By excluding results that take too long and including those from further afield, TravelTime offers the most relevant results to both house hunters and agents alike.

Matt Cohan – Chief Product Officer for ZPG: “We’re pleased to announce that our travel time tool has achieved an impressive 300% increase in conversions. We believe that because the results are more relevant the quality of leads we pass to our members is higher. We’re delighted that the tools and services we provide our consumers can deliver such commercial benefits to our members.”

HOW TRAVELTIME CAN HELP YOU
Searching by time is a strong foundation to implement other features into your website. Adding public transport season ticket data to property prices would enable house hunters to quickly and easily calculate their travel expenses on top of the cost of their home. Furthermore, school data implementation would allow searching for properties within a specific catchment area, ideal for parents.

WHO & WHAT
Countrywide is the UK’s largest property service group, operating in 1,500 locations across 50 brands, specialising in offering local reach on a national scale.

TRAVELTIME BENEFITS
Over the many months since Countrywide launched TravelTime across its brands, it’s consistently generated 3 times as many enquiries per 100 house hunters compared to distance searching. It also does all the heavy-lifting, ranking and sorting thousands of properties in just a fraction of a second without slowing down their own tech infrastructure.

HOW IT WORKS
TravelTime filters out misleading results and only delivers those relevant to the users. For example, a mile in the suburbs may only take 5 minutes by car, but in the city it could be up to an hour – something that searching by distance doesn’t take into account.

By excluding results that take too long and including those from further afield, TravelTime offers the most relevant results to both house hunters and agents alike.

Alex Bailes – Chief Digital officer, Countrywide PLC: “We wanted to offer house hunters a travel time search for ages – the issue is that it’s complex to do well. iGeolise’s TravelTime platform integrated seamlessly, so we could decide which features we wanted to to offer our users and build the screen that house hunters use. We always remained in complete control of the user experience, which was really important to us. To then go on and triple our rates at a stroke has been an absolute revelation.”

HOW TRAVELTIME CAN HELP YOU

Searching by time is a strong foundation to implement other features into your API. Adding public transport season ticket data to property prices would enable house hunters to quickly and easily calculate their travel expenses on top of the cost of their home. And with school data, you could enable searching for properties within a certain travel time of a specific school.
