My Video Contest Entry
(The New Frontier Online)

I have downloaded over  155 videos about real estate in youtube to date.

 I started marketing with videos back in 2009.

Understanding that most real estate videos are all lumped in the same mold . . houses, neighborhoods and community events.

I would like to use this opportunity to showcase a new successful and proven video approach that I'm using right now. . using LINKS

You can click on LINKS inside your video and ask your viewer to interact with you.



Yes, you heard that right. .my video entry is interactive!


When you review my video , you will see that I allow the viewers to pick 3 different options. . when they click the links INSIDE my video,they will be directed to a more defined video that will fit their concerns and eventually compell them to call me or sign up my form.



So, here's my entry for the contest ActiveRain And Kodak Video Contest . . . The New Frontier Online


But I got one more surprise for you. .

Did you know. .

                                 youtube will NOT allow you to link to outside websites. . .only to other videos insideyoutubeitself.



Not anymore! . .
I promise you are going to be glad you are reading this. .

I can show you how you can PUT LINKS INSIDE a 
youtube VIDEO TO DIRECT VIEWERS TO ANY OUTSIDE WEBSITE!


 A LINK TO OUTSIDE WEBSITES INSIDE YOUR 
VIDEO! !!

Imagine the possibilities. .

You can have a video with a LINK directing viewers to a sign up form, to your landing page, to your own IDX search . .etc, etc

Here's a small sample . . how I use it!


.



The best part of it. . its a FREE SERVICE . . .CLICK HERE  and start using LINKS to Interact with your viewers!

Thank you guys. . . having a link on your video is HUGE!!!!

I got an interactive SHORT SALES PRESENTATION . .The anonymity  is very desirable for short sale seekers. 

I literally have callings to my phone for a listing appointment where the caller says. . "what I need to sign?" "Can I come to your office now!"

An easier listing you will never get. . and the beauty about this . . it keeps working and working and working all on cruise control,

Here's how I use an Interactive Video for a short sale presentation

Fernando,  My mother always taught me that it's not polite to point.  All of your pointing feels like you are pushing me away.  I'd be afraid to have a conversation with you because I'd be afraid you'd be poking your finger into my chest constantly.    But if it works for you, more power to you.
