Record traffic and leads for OnTheMarket in January

OnTheMarket plc, the agent-backed company which operates the OnTheMarket.com property portal, announces today that traffic to its portal in January 2020 exceeded 30 million visits1, a new monthly record, an increase of more than 28% compared with January 2019 and 11% more than the previous record of 27.2 million in September 2019.

This performance helped to deliver a record number of leads for OnTheMarket’s estate agent, letting agent and new homes developer customers2 – a 52% increase in the total number of phone and email leads compared with January 2019. Average leads per advertiser rose 35% to 126, up from 93 in January 2019.

As an indicator of the level of engagement of property-seeking users of the portal, OnTheMarket sent in excess of 140 million instant property alerts in January 2020.

Ian Springett, Chief Executive Officer of OnTheMarket, said: “Our strong January performance provides powerful further evidence that our growth strategy is working and engagement is building amongst property-seekers, agents and developers alike. Our brand proposition and our multi-channel marketing investment have proven effective in attracting active property-seekers to the portal. Many of our agent shareholders and customers are choosing to list their properties on a ‘New & exclusive’ basis, 24 hours or more before Rightmove or Zoopla, and we are generating greater value than ever for our agents and new homes developers.”

Visits comprise individual sessions on OnTheMarket.com’s web-based portal or mobile app by users as measured by Google Analytics.

Data for leads generated is reported from the Company’s operating systems.
