Raising the real estate bar

Select = More readers, greater engagement, growing page views and contributor growth

Since Inman Select was launched less than three months ago, Inman readership has grown 72 percent, visits are up 43 percent, page views are up 60 percent, story comments have increased dramatically, and time on the site has increased 29 percent.

Measured by group sales, as many as 323,000 real estate professionals have access to Inman Select with more than 40,000 active and paid individual members.

Accounting for the explosion in growth at Inman is new content including more industry profiles, cutting-edge research, more video interviews, live streaming of Inman events and a massive increase in contributors. One of our popular new features is the “Behind the Curtain” video series where we are sharing insights from 100 industry professionals.

In the next couple of months, several new products are being launched:

  • Our Select Live series is a real-time live video stream of micro-conferences with experts in digital marketing, sales, customer acquisition, retention, training and a variety of other subjects.
  • An exclusive Select Facebook group where Select members can huddle to discuss serious real estate issues in a private, members-only group.
  • A daily tech review series, where industry experts will review the latest technology.
  • Our Inman Graph interactive directory, an exclusive service for Inman Select members where you can find the inside scoop on the best and brightest of the industry — a place for industry leaders to shine.
  • An exclusive Select member-only webinar series with two webinars a month on topical and relevant technology and business subjects.

The number of Select contributors has grown from 18 at the launch in November to more than 100 today.

“The best and brightest in real estate are contributing to Inman Select on a regular basis, augmenting the deeper news reporting of our staff journalists,” said Inman contributions editor Amber Taufen.
