video marketing: How Videos Can Boost Your Real Estate Marketing - 06/19/19 11:46 PM
I recently read that some people fear public speaking more than death itself. I can certainly understand that it can be scary! We want to be liked and accepted by those we interact with, and we feel like speaking before a group – or even just being honest on social media – can threaten that.
Despite what you may think, I struggled with being open as well, until I read Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. That book opened my mind to what might be possible.
How did I start? I started sharing my art. But I also started to do live videos!

video marketing: 4 Ways to Make Marketing Fun Instead of a Chore - 11/16/18 09:54 PM
Do you roll your eyes and sigh when it’s time for another direct mailing? I mean, didn’t you just do one… ok, maybe that was a couple months ago.
Still, a lot of Realtors® see direct mail – and marketing in general – as a frustrating chore. After all, they say, I’m in the business to sell homes, not to market myself!
Legendary copywriter Dan Kennedy likes to say, “No one is in the business of doing something. They are in the business of SELLING the doing of the thing – or they aren’t in business at all!”

video marketing: Why Try Video? Sharing Useful Information with Prospects & Customers - 11/15/18 07:46 PM
A lot of us are very shy about putting our face on camera. We don’t always like how we look, or we feel self-conscious. We might be nervous that we’ll stutter or say something silly.
The good news is that your prospects and clients don’t need you to be perfect. In fact, they’ll be more comfortable if you’re not!
Remember, we want prospects and customers to know, like, and trust us. They can do that most when we are authentic – which means showing our smiling faces.
Another thing that holds a lot of folks back from doing video is they feel they don’t … (7 comments)

video marketing: 3 Ways to Use Video to Promote Real Estate Listings - 10/07/17 04:02 PM
This post may contain affiliate links. We truly love, use, and recommend the best!If a picture is worth 1,000 words, a video must be worth a million. When you can take images, sound, and a clear understanding of space and dimension and put it all in one package, you can’t lose.
If you have been avoiding video because you think it’s too difficult or too expensive, I’m about to change your mind. Cell phone cameras have been increasing in quality, and people’s enjoyment of less-professional “raw” video is increasing.
Whether you want to invest in professional video or use a Facebook Live, there … (3 comments)

video marketing: 4 Ways to Market Real Estate Listings - 06/03/16 07:05 AM

The challenge you face in making a real estate listing is right in the name itself: Listings. By definition, your property will be displayed in a list (in either online or print) among other ads that are trying to do the exact same thing you are.
When human eyes see a series of listings, they immediately go into “Just the facts, please” mode and start scanning for the things that will jump out to them. This means they’re only looking at price, location, neighborhood or the picture. That’s your small window to grab them.
So let’s take a look at 4 things you … (1 comments)

video marketing: 3 Types of YouTube Videos That Will Bring You Leads - 09/22/15 07:21 AM

For the most part, I strongly advocate picking a basic marketing strategy and sticking to it. This strategy should combine online and offline elements, and needs to respect the time and resources you have available.
That said, sometimes it’s fun and profitable to branch out in new ways. One way that Realtors® can make an impact is through YouTube Videos. Having a YouTube page for your real estate business is important anyway – you can post walkthroughs there for additional visibility. But getting in front of the camera yourself is also a great marketing strategy.
