Most trade publications view their web and digital properties as a "throw-in," which is a nice way of saying they view their online presence as a throw-away. Not at HousingWire. We started on the web long before we ever published a magazine, and that starting point continues to guide our product development efforts today. At HW, our web and digital products aren't just front and center to everything we do: they're the very future of our entire media company.
HousingWire.com is the digital heartbeat
Everything starts with HousingWire.com. In early 2012, we did more than redesign our web presence: we starting over from scratch, using groundbreaking new technologies that will allow the HousingWire.com platform to function as a digital hub for a wide range of existing and future products. Our award-winning magazine is now available digitally for subscribers, and we're actively collecting a wide range of data to build out an industry-leading Market Data Center. But that's just the start, as more products will be introduced every quarter, extending HW's leading position as a media innovator in the mortgage and housing industries.
The largest job board in the industry
Via a unique partnership with SimplyHired.com, HousingWire offers both job seekers and employers the most robust industry-specific job resource in the entire mortgage industry. Thousands of jobs are available at your fingertips: certainly a welcome relief for jobseekers tired of looking for jobs in the industry they call their own.
For employers, the benefits of including HousingWire.com in your talent sourcing strategy are huge. A posting on the HW Jobs site not only is seen on HousingWire.com--meaning tens of thousands of professionals each month will see your job--but it automatically syndicated to the entire SimplyHired network. That means your job is seen on Facebook, LinkedIn, and many other high-traffic websites beyond HW.
One web, many devices
Remember the days of visiting one web address on your computer, and having to go somewhere else on your mobile or tablet device? HousingWire.com uses the latest web standards to work across ANY device. Whether iPhone, Android tablet, iPad or something else, you'll be able to use HousingWire.com.
Perhaps the most innovative aspect of our "one web" initiative is our digital magazine. Available at http://magazine.housingwire.com, you can now read an entire issue of HousingWire Magazine on your tablet device, without needing to download a separate app. (You're welcome.)
HousingWire has, for years now, had the fastest-growing list of subscribers in the industry. Part of the reason? Our industry leading--and completely free--email newsletters, which provide industry professionals with the news they need to know as it happens. Those registering for our email service can choose from a range of email alerts, including Breaking News, Daily Updates, and our Morning Radar service, which summarizes key housing and mortgage news appearing in the major dailies.
Our email newsletters have developed a well-earned reputation for reporting the industry news that matters, first. In fact, many of our email alerts bring readers the stories they need days, even weeks, before the competition. If you haven't already signed up, click here.
