Celebrate 15th Anniversary with Us!

We are turning 15 in December. This is the story of how our company evolved into what it is today, and how we plan to celebrate. Pilot Group Ltd was founded in 2000 by Yanar Evdokimov and his friends, the ‘co-pilots’. The company’s business was general web development. Internet was only starting to infiltrate our lives, and a lot of companies did not have corporate websites or any online representation whatsoever. Pilot Group was doing different custom projects. PG Real Estate script was built in about 2005. The product found his niche so we employed sales and support managers, designers, testers and other specialists to support and develop the project. Over 10 years, PG Real Estate changed the platform, several designs, we released several dozen releases, built Marketplace for PG Real Estate modules, add-ons and services and developed mobile applications for iOS and Android. Today PG Real estate - is a full-featured solution for real estate professionals and entrepreneurs. Our customers can choose between a free open code and enhance it with modules and add-ons from our Marketplace and ready packages.

Fear Stops Potential Entrepreneurs Launching Businesses

Recently, virgin.com published a research of Dr Philipp K Berger on how is it that this debilitating fear affects potential entrepreneurs? It’s something that researcher Dr Philipp K Berger knows all about, back in 2010 he toyed with the idea of starting his own business but found himself worrying about taking the leap. “Even though starting a company was completely my dream, I found myself confronted with a lot of irrational fear that I really could not explain,” he tells the Wall Street Journal. “Even if the company failed I was sure I would get another good job afterwards so objectively there was no reason to fear.” Eventually he launched the business – a sushi restaurant chain with automated production – and at the same time explored the relationship between fear and entrepreneurship in his PhD thesis. “People are less fearful if they have leadership experience and an intrinsic motivation to start a company,” he says. “The sex of the entrepreneur also matters. Females tend to be more fearful about founding a company, even though they have the same success chances once they actually do. A lot of the entrepreneurship potential of women is untapped.” Unsurprisingly, his research also found that people who had a high self-estimation of their abilities also had lower fear – and thus a higher chance of actually doing something with their ideas and founding companies. However, he does point out that this has nothing to do with actual competency, so there’s a chance that these entrepreneurs aren’t the...

How To Be More Persuasive

In real estate, persuasion can take you far, whether it's finding ways to save your clients money in a negotiation or trying to court new business. Scott Yancey, CEO of the startup CloudWords, shares the following tips for making a persuasive case in business: 1. Make a data-driven case. Convincing someone to agree with your idea or approach typically requires a little more than saying, “Trust me.” You need research, facts, and evidence to support your claims. Be sure to cite credible resources so your audience knows your information is reliable. 2. Be your own “devil’s advocate.” Know the opposing side of the argument.That way, when encountering others who are new to this idea or vision and who will  innately try to find holes in the story, you  have all the data or arguments to convince otherwise. 3. Know your audience. Who are you talking to? Tailor your message accordingly.If you know your audience’s preferences and priorities, you can craft your messages to better resonate and engage with them. 4. Pay attention and eagerly discuss objections. Listen to your audience’s objections or criticisms, and don’t dismiss opposing viewpoints. Come across as excited about objections, as it shows you’re not defensive and gives confidence in the person you’re persuading that you genuinely want their feedback and are seeking the best resolution — not just your resolution. 5. End with a call to action. Make it easy for your audience to go along with your idea. Close with a call to action and identify the necessary next steps that need to take place. Remember, even the most effective...

4 Simple Steps for Local SEO Success

Nowdays, it is not a problem to start your real estate business online. The market offers a great variety of ready-to-go cms solutions, so that you dont need any programming skills or technical education. What becomes a problem is a site promotion and below we will quoted the article by Peter Roesler on how to help local business owners increase traffic to their website and businesses. 1. Establish Google My Business Profile Just as Google is the starting point for SEO on desktop, the giant of search is where business owners need to start for planning their local SEO strategy. Google's local platform is called Google My Business, which took the place of Google Places. Local business owners should set up a Google My Business profile as soon as possible. In order to get a verified listing, which benefits the website in local searches, the business will need to have Google call a physical phone at the location or get a postcard sent to the address and use the verification code. Getting a verified profile will help with SEO because it means the page will turn up in local searches. So if a person searches for delis and a zip code (or use the phrase "Near Me"), the Google My Business locations that are listed as delis will show in the map on search results. If some searches for the specific business, the Google My Business profile will give information about the business, like hours of operations or reviews directly on the right hand side of...
