UsedAirplanes.com reported today that the ratio in which visitors are requesting broker contact information, as well as information on the used airplanes and used aircraft they list, is increasing when compared to overall traffic.
“Although traffic is greatly increasing to our website as a result of our current SEO and social media efforts, what is most encouraging is that more people as a percentage are showing interest in both our brokers and their listings. For example, for every 1,000 new (unique) visitors to our website, our brokers are getting more leads and inquiries than what was generated by 1,000 new visitors last month. This is a good indication that there are more serious buyers than lookers at this time and we see this trend continuing” stated Mark J Horne, Founder.
UsedAirplanes.com captures exceptionally high-targeted traffic of used airplane and used aircraft buyers. From the self-explanatory domain name, to the structure of the website, visitors come, stay and bookmark UsedAirplanes.com for one very obvious reason; to find used airplanes and aircraft.
Projecting stronger sales for the industry as a whole in 2010
Four years ago the United States set sail into the perfect financial storm. In its path of destruction there was little to no mercy bestowed upon people and industries, and it left us with one of the worst recessions ever recorded. We witnessed the pummeling of 401k's and investment accounts, a housing sector that went completely underwater, job losses being recorded at record paces and a financial sector debacle that could only be compared to the great depression. When $135/barrel oil was added to the mix and topped off with a vicious cycle created when financial institutions were forced to turn off the lending spigot, it becomes obvious that the aviation industry wouldn’t be spared.
But that was then and this is now.
As the first quarter of 2010 comes to an end, there are several indicators and factors that lead us to believe the second half of 2010 will start the long awaited breakout for sales with used airplanes, aircraft, and products within the aviation industry as a whole. These include several leading economists prognosticating the continuation of the current bull market, loosening of credit by banks, and the continuing stabilization of the job and housing markets. In addition, the aviation industry should also benefit from the strong resurgence known to typically follow a recession.
“Another promising sign came last week when it was reported that International Lease Finance Corp. was able to tap into the corporate bond market. What makes this event so appealing is the fact that ILFC was able to raise money through debt rather than equity. The fact that ILFC and others are finally able to tap into cheap money without dilution is a very strong indication that investor confidence is growing. This action will certainly add to the argument against indicators that may presage a recession.
In addition, last week Cirrus Aircraft President and CEO Brent Wouters stated; “A number of key business measurements suggest stronger performance in 2010 than previously anticipated.”
“This was certainly a welcomed read. We also noted that Cirrus had job posting links in a social media network we also frequent. We view these actions as another affirmation to our opinion on the forward looking 2010 market conditions. These events help provide us with an explanation that have elucidated the recent spike in interest with used airplanes and aircraft,” stated Horne.
“If the economy can keep flying in this direction with all these positive tailwinds at its back, we have all the ingredients for a promising second half of 2010, and we believe our optimistic position will be validated with a continued recovery that will spill over into all areas of the aircraft industry,” stated Horne.
