Now Playing on YouTube: The ActiveRain Video Contest Playlist

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Compelling Media + Design

The ActiveRain Video Contest closed with a flurry of activity yesterday... check out all the videos tagged ActiveRain video contest 2008 here.

YouTube was the most popular video player used by the entrants - though most of the sharing sites got in on the action including Vimeo, Veoh, and Brightcove. There were also a few WellcomeMat shows, a Flash video player, and few hosted on Mixpo.

Bonus points to Michael Pierce who posted his contest entry using Vimeo, but also added the same video on YouTube. That's the kind of efficiency I wrote about in Get Ready for Video with You Own Branded Channel. His video is also very creative, now it's playing two locations.

In the end, almost 80% used YouTube, and with some of the sharing features you can use on YT, I created a Playlist of all the contest entries. Check out the AR Contest Playlist on YouTube.

You've probably also noticed the giant orange YouTube Video Player below... it's hard to miss.

This is another sharing feature on YT. The ability to create your own custom video player, load it with the videos you want, and then share it on your blog, site, etc. I added all the videos to a Playlist (link right below the player) and then set the player to show only the Playlist.

This could also be used to separate your property listing videos, your testimonials, community shows... a different Playlist for each subject.

 

 

 

Unfortunately you can't load non-YouTube videos into your player... so to the other entrants that used other platforms, I did search :) If you add your video to YouTube too, send me a email and I'll add your video to the Playlist.

Congrats and good luck to all the entrants!

They ALL look horrible there! YouTube is far and away the BEST and quickest way to make your videos look horrible!

Why showcase them in the worst light?

I can't put my real estate videos on You Tube, lest the psychos find out my REAL name, location, etc! I'm in the partner program there. But I did post to both Vimeo and WellcomeMat. I just didn't get WellcomeMat added to my post in time, since they have to check everything. I can add it to the post, but I wasn't sure if the judges could see if I made any revisions to the post, and I didn't want them to think I didn't get the original video posted in time.  Should I add the WellcomeMat video along with the Vimeo vid?

Paul - sorry you feel that way. YouTube does have its limitations.

Lisa - I'd add the video, but not sure how that would work for the contest... I'd contact an Bob or Rich from the site - regardless, love to see what you came up with

Bob - added your video to the Playlist, very nice by the way... I'll probably shuffle the order now and then so you're not always at the back. :)

Cheers - Jason

Here's my A|R video on YouTube.

Actually, if you do a google search for the title of my entry "Team366 Marketing 101 - Expose Your Home" you'll see over 50 instances of this particular marketing piece.

Just noticed this post, so I thought I would make sure to be included!

Thanks Jason!

Hi Todd - Just added your video to the playlist -

I rearranged the ordering a bit too, so your video's up front - bonus for missing you the first time :)
