Raising Money for AgentsGiving: #RelocationAcrosstheNation

 
 
Relocation Agent Network invites you to take part in our #RelocationAcrosstheNation event, in aid of UK charity, Agents Giving. We’re asking participating members to donate &1 for every referral that you send or receive between 22 June and 31 July, with the aim of raising at least &1,000 for the well-deserved cause. It’s that simple!
 

We’ve calculated that on average, a participating member company will donate around &13 during this event. So collectively, the power of the Network can raise funds for a great cause, promote the reach of our Referral Network to your local customers and prospects, and generate profitable referral revenue for members!

 

How do I take part?
All members are automatically included in this initiative, so we will keep you informed of your referral numbers. However it is completely voluntary whether you make a donation. As well as raising money for a good cause, the event is a great way to promote the Referral Network to your team members and Relocation Agent Network to the public.

Accredited Relocation Specialist
Earlier this year, we launched an annual assessment of Relocation Agent Specialists, whereby - at the start of each year - we assess the past year's achievements of every Relocation Agent Specialist in the Network. Those who continue to recognise the Importance of Customer Service will receive an annual certificate and press release.

 

Were you a 2017 certified Relocation Agent Specialist?

 
There are two tiers of assessment to receive an annual certificate:
Standard. Given to individuals who have continued to provide quality service to relocating customers, maintaining an acceptable standard over the previous 12 months, by sending 'qualifying' referrals to their Network colleagues.

Advanced. Awarded to the top 10% of individuals who have excelled and gone above and beyond in the relocation services that they provide to customers. This will be demonstrated by the fact that over the previous 12 months, the individual has helped a significant number of customers by sending ‘qualifying’ referrals to their Network colleagues.

 
 
 

 


*To complete Phase 2, participants must have listened to all programme soundbites and attended our three online training sessions. The brand of store voucher will be chosen by each winner, providing the Relocation Agent Network team is able to purchase the vouchers requested.  

From 1 November 2016 to 31 October 2017, Relocation Agent Network a division of Cartus Limited (together known as “Cartus”) are administering the 2016-17 Referral Prize Draws on behalf of Relocation Agent Network’s Advisory Council.

Refreshed Embedded Page

We're delighted to share with you our new embedded page, which includes a new video and more responsive web design, so that it automatically resizes to any device (PC, mobile, tablet). Check it out: http://www.webbers.co.uk/RAN-Relocation

 

FAQs

Do I have to amend the url to the current embedded page?
Yes, this will require a small modification and as such Relocation Agent Network will write to all members using the existing page under separate cover.

I’d like to start using the page straight away, what do I need to do?
Get in touch with either your Regional Development Manager or Errol Dyer (errol.dyer@cartus.com) so that they can get this organised for you.

The new embedded page appears to have been designed on the basis of full screen width, is this correct?
Yes, the page has been designed to maximise the space available on the page. It is for this reason that we have chosen not to use the current URL but rather modify it slightly to ensure that you can check to ensure that the new page fits in with your website, prior to going live with it.

With the previous embedded page, I had the option to ‘style’ the font types, can I do the same again?
The new page has been designed with the Network in mind, ensuring that it provides a 100% consistent appearance, message and approach. Therefore, Network members will not be permitted to style the new page further.

I have looked at the new page and I prefer the original video of Richard Tucker. Is it possible to have that video instead?
Yes, simply get in touch with either your Regional Development Manager or Errol Dyer (errol.dyer@cartus.com) so that they can get this changed for you.

We look forward to hearing from you all in due course and helping you to get this new page embedded on your respective websites.
