Lamudi.pk Organises Bloggers Meetup
With increase in use of internet in Pakistan trend of online buying/selling is increasing day by day. Now a days using internet you can trade used or new products/devices, buy/sell cars, acquire various services, order for food, find different locations using local maps or find jobs relevant to your qualification but we don’t have many sites for trading property online.
On 17th June 2014 a blogger meet up was organized by Lamudi.pk at La Atrium Lahore. Lamudi.pk is one of the largest portals for trading property online in Pakistan.
Surprisingly the main focus of the event was to brief bloggers and writers about the Lamudi’s organizational culture and hierarchy. The press release issued by Lamudi mostly consists of information about employee related recreational activities rather than information regarding company’s strategy, recent achievements, competitive position, future plans or benchmarks. It was more like company’s introduction drafted for a prospective employee.
Mr. Saad Arshad (Country head of Lamudi) told bloggers that they appreciate healthy competition and consider themselves pioneers and trend setters in this market niche. He explained Lamudi’s organizational culture and answered few questions from the participants, in an answer of a question he mentioned that there are approximately 130,000 property listings on the website but it cannot be considered a final number as properties are subject to expiry after 120 days. He claimed Lamudi to be the leading real estate marketplace which offers sellers, buyers, landlords and renters a secure and easy-to-use platform to find or list properties online.
Lamudi already has its smartphone (iOS and Google Play Store) applications with good user ratings and nice user interface facilitating smartphone users.
The event was overall very interactive and held in a very friendly atmosphere, it was a great opportunity to interact with Lamudi team and other bloggers. Ala carte dinner was served during the event and goody bags were gifted to all bloggers, a memorable group photo was also captured at end of session. Such events should be conducted on regular basis.
