Press Release: City Brand Media (CBM) & Leavitt Digital (LDCRE) form Strategic Partnership bringing Commercial Real Estate listings to City Brand Media’s 400 City-Based Websites.
Scottsdale, AZ. August 28th, 2016. City Brand Media (CBM) and LDCRE announce today that they have formed a publishing and marketing alliance that will result in CBM’s 400 PLUS City branded websites having a Commercial Real Estate section in each market they service.
City Brand Media (CBM) is an online advertising media and marketing company that builds, manages, owns 400+ (city).com websites (300+ domestic and 100+ international). CMB manages all the sales, marketing, and advertising functions across its portfolio sites with local, national, and international partners. By close of 2017 CBM estimates it will own and/or manage 1,000+ city or geographically based websites.
CMB’s websites have 2,000,000+ combined monthly visitors seeking local market news, entertainment, business, and soon commercial real estate via Leavitt Digital’s (LDCRE) listing platform which will power the commercial real estate sections in CBM’s websites.
“Historically, City(dot)com sites get significant real estate based traffic on the residential side. Since the basis of each City is hyper-local content, we expect to generate interest by our viewers on the commercial side as well,” states CBM CEO Fred Mercaldo. “We believe this platform will be an attractive section on our sites for commercial real estate agents to provide additional content and advertise their services, and our team at CBM consist of many SEO and traffic experts; we will heavily promote this new section aggressively, and expect it to be extremely successful for all involved.”
LDCRE enables brokers and owners to increase local and global reach on listings through LDCRE’s national and international listing syndication platform into (city).com websites. LDCRE’s market reach enables brokers and their listings to increase their local and global market reach. LDCRE is entirely free to list and search commercial real estate for sale and commercial real estate for lease. Through a number of partnerships with international commercial real estate brokerage firms and listing management companies LDCRE estimates it will have 100,000+ active commercial real estate listings by close of 2016.
“Working with Fred (Fred Mercaldo, CEO of CBM) and the CBM Team, LDCRE is able to increase its market reach locally and globally. We are able to drastically increase the visibility of all the listings on LDCRE in way that no other commercial listing platforms have done. Fred is a close personal friend and considered the market leader for geo-domains; we couldn’t ask for a better partner,” said Brendan Hotchkiss, CEO of LDCRE.
CBM and LDCRE are working together to design the form and function of CBM’s Commercial Real Estate Sections, which they estimate will be launched October of 2016. CBM is exclusively managing all ad sales on LDCRE.com, which will be live December 2016.
