Add a Video Tour of Your Local Area to Your Website with a Mueller Map
Awhile ago, ok it's been quite awhile now, I won a Mueller Map for listening to JC KC Social Media Edge on Blog Talk Radio (formerly Twitter Tuesday) that is hosted by ActiveRain's Jason Crouch, Ken Cook and Mike Mueller.
I'm still pretty new to video but had some videos put together using digital still photos and RealEstateShows.com. We also had access to some great local videos on YouTube from our local Realtor Association. View Our Missoula Local Tour Here
Adding a Mueller Map to your website is a great way to show people your area through local videos that you have created or that you are able to find on YouTube.
Each point on the map is connected to a video of that location. Viewers can either click on the point on the map or on the list on the right column to get the local video to pop up.
You can also set up your Mueller Map to have your contact information on the Info tab behind the video - it even includes links to your Social Media Sites (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Flickr, YouTube, and Email)!
We plan to add more of our own videos to the site over time but are excited to be able to offer this to visitors to our website!
According to Mike's webiste AreWeConnected, you can use a Mueller Map to:
- map your listings (with slideshow or video)
- map your neighborhood restaurants (interviewing owners or patrons)
- map your interesting local points of interest
If you choose to get a Mueller Map for your site, Mike Mueller does most of the work by setting up the Google Map and the spreadsheet for you to enter your information. All you have to do is fill in the link to the video on You Tube and some basic information about the video. Detailed instructions are provided on how to complete those parts.
Some nice features of the Mueller Map:
- It map can be updated by a simple spreadsheet (by the Agent)
- Embed this in a blog post, in a sidebar, or as a single webpage
- Map can be built to most any size (this is large but could be as small as a sidebar widget)
- Map Only or Map with Sidebar Legend
- Link to Directions, link to more info, or link to website, there are no limits
A GREAT BIG Thank you to Mike Mueller for helping us get this set up! :)
