Common Goals: How newspapers work, and don't work, for Realtors 9/2/14

The Realtors' world is a lot like ours. Both Realtors and newspaper executives must figure out how customers want to get their information and how to provide distinct services. During a Tuesday afternoon session at the News Industry Summit, Cindy Jez, vice president of new homes and regional marketing for Long & Foster Real Estate, will focus on how newspapers and Realtors continue working together. She will present best practices and talk about what works and what doesn't – from the perspective of the largest privately-held real estate company in America. "Real estate marketing is more critical than ever," Jez says. "What a tangled web we have woven with public information available for free. How do we create greater value for our clients on a local and regional basis?"

The location is new, and SNPA President Tom Silvestri has crafted an agenda with more time for networking, mind-expanding programming, a visit to Monticello ... and not a single speaker that you have seen at other industry events. The first speaker, in fact, is a symphony conductor. The agenda includes an expanded town-hall idea-exchange, a major advertiser, a university president, an expert on branding, insights from the NEX-GEN program, a fast-moving segment on growing revenue and audience, R&D partners with new products and services, and much more. "If you're in need of a jolt in leadership inspiration, a comfortable getaway in the mountains to recharge your energy, a timeout to refresh your thinking for the last quarter of 2014, and a fun opportunity to catch up with friends or make new acquaintances that could be game-changing, I welcome you to come to Mr. Jefferson's hometown," said SNPA President Tom Silvestri. "Get out of your routine and book the time to spend in Charlottesville so you can renew your drive to excellence with the organization that's always had the publisher's best interest and well-being at heart. I guarantee your presence will be well worth it." Registration for the meeting begins this week, and discounted registration continues until Aug. 15.
