    Our Shop Window
    In Detail
     If you are looking to buy or rent, your search usually focuses on a specific area
    – Current search methods are to walk up and down the high street, or on the web from home
     Our Shop Window provides a happy medium to bring the normal person to the area
    they want to buy/rent in
    – without having to make their feet hurt looking for what they specifically want to go and see
     Local agents are marketed to, so that they can upload new instructions in real time, so
    that they are displayed on Our Shop Window in their local Tube Station/s - FREE
    – They have an option to upgrade their listing, for a small fee
    – All data on how popular their entries have been, and how many people in total have looked, can be seen,
    for a small fee – We charge for access to valuable data; simple, cost-effective packages
     We partner, initially with one of the big web based property search engines
    – Findaproperty/Primelocation, Rightmove, Zoopla, Globrix
     We use this platform to market our subsequent businesses and utilise the data to
    identify where and what businesses we should focus on

    SellYours.com
    In Detail
     When you want to sell your house, you go to a high street agent
    – they ask for 1.5% to 3% of the price of the property
    – If you ask them what you get for that, the sums will never add up
    – If there are services you won’t use, the price is the same
     Building on the success of Our Shop Window, we market our own sales method
     The Normal Person visits Sellyours.com from the comfort of their own surroundings:
    – Ticks which services they want (anything from just advertising on the web and in print, to the whole hog)
    – Are displayed with live price comparisons with local agents (“hmm, so I am still saving £5,000 compared
    with Fectons, maybe I’ll go for the interior design service to try and achieve a higher price…”)
    – Can monitor in real time, or over the phone with a friendly assistant, what stage they are at with the sale
     Our advantage:
    – Low overheads – almost everything is referred to third parties – where demand is high is where we set
    up on the ground
    – We can significantly undercut high street agents, while still giving business to the nice, local agents

    Environmental Prerogative
    The half business and our future
     With SellYours.com, free of charge, we will provide all new homeowners with an
    environmental audit
     We will deliver a report of what can be done to save, conserve and improve on:
    – Energy Consumption, Waste Disposal, Energy Generation, Insulation and more
     Free of charge, we will action some of those findings, if the new owner consents
     PR – Our Message will be simple:
    – We are doing what the government should have been doing long ago, and is still not doing
    – We are taking it upon ourselves to educate the Normal Person of the real costs of renewal energies,
    recycling, energy savings methods
    – This isn’t just a business – this is our livelihood, and what we have to hand over to the next generation
     We can then go in one of two directions:
    – Set up an endowment fund for other altruistic types to invest into
    – Or we can become the single biggest supplier, in our markets, of residential:
     Solar panels, wind generators, kinetic generators, electrical rewiring, recycling fixtures…

    Our Values
    Expertise
     Champion of Local Businesses
     Making sustainability normal
     Property is not an emerging segment
    – But that doesn’t mean the market shouldn’t change for the advantage of the Normal Person
     Room for growth
    – There are way too many traditional estate agents – the wealth does not spread amongst trained
    professionals
    – Sales people get an extraordinarily large cut of the property sales revenue
    – This undermines skills in the economy, in general
    – We will look to put in systems that redistribute wealth more evenly, and especially to skilled people

    General Operational Ethos
    Musings
     When you order, you should know when things are happening, be comfortable with timeframes
    and be supported throughout the process. The worst thing for a customer is not knowing what
    is happening, whether they are paying money or not. Make the customer feel in control.
     If you were going to create a revolutionary property business, how would you go about
    it?
    – Ideally you would start from scratch, avoiding all the issues of a traditional business. Then you would
    build a brand new service entirely around your customers' needs. You would make sure this service
    saved people time, effort and stress. We want to change people's habits with the wonderful convenience
    of being in control and having the assurance to move ahead with confidence. We will build this business
    to address the needs of busy people in the 21st Century, without compromising on the things you would
    usually get as standard anywhere else.
     The technology side of things will dictate our operating margins – do we load up our balance
    sheet with touch screens and servers, or find a way to lease them.
    – On the software side, we want to use as much proprietary software / hardware as possible, with large
    corporation backing. e.g. using Microsoft interfaces means that we do not have to develop it solely
     The key to the business is having influence over the market – that is our profit margin, and
    that is our survival as a business – to stay not only a step ahead, but to point to where the
    next step will be, and draw others in to follow as a critical mass

    General Operational Ethos
    Environmental Impact
     What does the general public know about the cost and implications of conservation of
    resources and energy?
    – How much does a solar panel cost, and how much money does it save?
    – What difference does it make to your bills if your home is properly insulated?
    – How much can you save by having plug points that switch off idle devices automatically?
     We have a responsibility to future generations
    – free of charge, we will help provide environmental consultancy for your new home
    – aid in small improvements, such as recycling, solar heating, intelligent electricity saving measures, etc
     For a further cost, we will install:
    – Solar panels, wind generators, rewire, intelligent home, GPS tracking, etc
    – which we can demonstrate long term cost savings for
     Other companies try to minimise their environmental impact. We want to INCREASE our
    environmental impact, on every home we are involved with, in a good, considerate and
    positive manner.

    General Operational Ethos
    Employee Network
     Outstanding members of the community
    – Employees MUST contribute in the community (geographical and business)
     E.g. Sitting on board of companies and charities
     Knowledge is Power – So empower the future: TEACH
    – Universities and schools are filled with people who couldn’t do, so they teach
    – ALL employees must educate themselves
    – ALL employees must focus on what they are good at, and develop that focus
    – ALL employees should have a roadmap to them giving that skill to others through:
     Lecturing
     Visiting Teacher positions
     Community Work / Volunteering

    Technology
     Input application for agents
    – Easy to download and interfaces with their in-house software
    – Web based version for those who cannot download
     but light of some features, to encourage download and install
    – Interfaces with ALL current property websites
     Needs to be THE tool for estate agents
     Makes sure information is organised and flexible – to our standards
     Front end for Our Shop Window
    – Multitouch
    – Possibly utilising Windows 7 – needs to be supported by a proprietary software developer
     Most companies report quarterly figures
    – We want to report by the second
     Like Google has a counter for the increasing Gmail storage, our systems should update the investor
    relations website, in real time, with details of our inputs (revenues) and outputs (costs)
     Good Reporting = Solid grasp of business, transparency and risk mitigation
     Great Reporting = Being faster and more profitable than the competition, as well as more innovative
