Kodak Video Challenge Submission #1 and #2 ready to go - or NOT!

By
Commercial Real Estate Agent with Trans State Commercial RE Ft. Lauderdale/Miami/Palm Beach 0516472

Welcome to a humurous chapter in my life or is it really a challenge?

Adapting to technology is challenging at times and this is one of those times for me AR community.

It seems so simple to enter the Kodak Video Challenge this month, so I went to a lovely condo listed in metro Fort Lauderdale yesterday and popped out my Ultra HD Flip and proceeded to create my very first submission.  Good so far.  Meeting the criteria for 3 minutes as a virtual tour, introducing myself, providing a call to action to email or phone me to preview and/or make a bonafided offer.  Good is good enough right?

Wrong! omitted some serious selling points in video and proceeded to provide in text form under the video:

Seller lives in another state and has dramatically reduced the purchase price to $44,900

Low monthly maintenance fee $317 monthly

Low property taxes $1,250

Although obvious, neglected to tell the buyer it is a total remodel

Use as a getaway weekend retreat

I am certain after reviewing the link below you can identify more ommissions, so please proceed to comment should time permit

NOW I go back to the instructions for the contest....post your video in the Active Rain channel and use the topic Kodak Video Challenge and insert specific text

no spaces - "activerain" on YouTube - I see no posts for this contest.  What I see are posts from 1, 2 and 3 years ago...nothing 2011!

I then space the 2 words "active rain" - and yes there are current posts...from 4 months ago...AND I suddenly realize I have paralysis once again when it comes to technology. I ask myself, does this mean no one has yet to enter the contest as yet? Self says go do some other productive work now and get back to this project tonight...points arent the same as revenue in my life.

I even get the part about the embedded html to insert into your blog post...so here it is:

Estate Sale Income Duplex Property East side of Ft Lauderdale Florida

REBrokerEileen 3 videos Subscribe Alert iconSubscribed

Is this how to sell a wonderful duplex on the east side of Fort Lauderdale Florida? An estate sale, sadly acquired by surviving sister who does not live in the area. Can be yours for a mere $150,000! two bedroom, one bath on either side. Both have fenced yards. Central air/heat...best of all - impact windows to keep your insurance costs lower and sustain hurricane winds when they decide to visit sunny south Florida. Terrazzo flooring, window treatments.

Make this your getaway weekend spot for winter getaways or rent both sides out for annual income. Low property taxes. Near the beach, airport, interstate, shops, restaurants and hospitals. Two blocks away huge community park with ball field, tennis courts, track and fire house.

Yesterday, when the lightbulb when on Realizing I omitted facts, I decided I would upload 2 additional videos the next day just with "the story" about both properties as submissions.  I even called the Seller to share my excitement and enthusiasm for my "Big Idea".

For those new to uploading videos...3 minutes can take 60 minutes plus.

 

 

Here comes the funny part...I was ready to post on Active Rain Facebook. I copy and pasted the code and it looked Chinese to me.  This option suddenly disappeared and went away.

I am blogging about it today and shall think about it tomorrow Scarlett.

Stay tuned

Congratulations on making the break and doing the videos.  It should improve your google placement.  They will probably take less time as you do more.
