Two programs have been launched to offer (1) exposure to real estate technology providers and (2) an affiliate program to entities looking to expand their educational offerings.
1. Technology Partners (Sponsors)
The training experience for the REW certification not only discusses emerging technologies such as mobile technologies, agent websites, online tours, etc. but also highlights technology companies, who are best-of-breed and compliment the technology awareness curriculum.
“Showcase of real estate technology providers allows REW Candidates to get their full 5-senses around the value-proposition of available technologies that comprise a comprehensive, real estate web presence”, said Marc Grayson, President and Founder of the National Institute of Webographers, LLC.
Technology partners/sponsors enjoy benefits such as (1) an interactive, multi-media presentation of their technology, (2) showcase of their technology in real world scenarios through demonstration accounts reserved for REW candidates, (3) an optional guided activity for candidates to fully experience the “bells & whistles” of their technology, and (4) where applicable, mention of their technology in REW™ core course materials.
2. REW™ Affiliates
Real estate schools, brokers, educational providers, trainers, coaches and other affiliates who share the vision of educating RE professionals in emerging technologies, can join the REW Affiliate Program. Becoming an REW™ Affiliate costs nothing and can be accomplished by simply signing up through NIW’s online affiliate system. Registered affiliates are provided with access to REW™ marketing, print and web materials, and generous commission opportunities all accessible via the REW Affiliate dashboard.
“Our affiliate program provides schools, brokers and other educational entities the opportunity to add a well-respected certification to their service offerings all in one day”, said Marc Grayson. “Our affiliates have access to presentations, sample web pages, sample email blasts, PDF brochures; all to establish the REW Certification as an in-house technology certification where we do all the proctoring!”
