14 minutes is not short. Now this is just me, but I do not want to see the agent doing an on-camera narrative. It's distracting. Your opening flyover of the area was gorgeous.

I do a lot of video, it's all about the demographics of the area leading into the property that I'm marketing. I come from media as a profession. So I'm always thinking how to cram a lot of information into a very short window. The brain can take in information a lot more quickly than it can be spoken to them, so slamming images and info fast can be effective.

I've felt the consumer's attention span is short..keep then less than 2 minutes. I do videos on my community, surrounding area, parks, amenities, community and school events, listings, open houses etc. Keep them short and alternate them!

14 minutes for most is a lot.  I do lots of videos about listings all the way to a short clip about the local flavor of an area, a community or a city. I would think that one to four minutes should be enough to create a message. Video tours can be very efficient including blog videos. Nat Wallen : I like a lot the idea of a catalog of video tours. To keep the viewer interested can be tricky.

For me, I decided to create a catalog of video tours. I created one main tour that shows off the different areas of my town, and then offer my full catalog when you register on my site. It is doing well by breaking the ice and avoids forced registration. Here is my Charleston Overview Video.

Nat,

Excellent video.

Be aware, a video can not be TOO LONG, it can only be TOO BORING.

Without a doubt, it requires exceptional skills and communication to continuously draw a viewer forward and into the message and expereince. That is why so few good videos exist.

Just make sure the promise and the experience are in alignment when presenting the message.

As we all know every minute of quality video equals nearly an hour of post production work. For many, that investment is WAY too much. So, how do you make it faster, cheaper, easier and better?  Keep it short.

A good video, like a good novel, requires a good craftsman.
