Breaking 300,000 with a Marketing Video

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Executives Nampa, ID

Here’s another short marketing video with a small flair of fun.


I love the creativity of making these little videos and yet, I know they may not have quite enough humor in them, but it is fun experimenting.


I am seeking to learn how to create back-links on youtube videos for my website.


If anyone knows how to do this, please let me know!


I hope you enjoy this little marketing video I put together…


If you haven’t tried yet, Be careful, it’s addictive, almost like Active Rain!


With this post, I am officially breaking the 300,000 point barrier!

Don - I have studiously avoided using Xtranormal, as I'm sure that I would also end up addicted.  Nice video!  :)  Congratulations on your latest milestone, too.  Keep up the good work, my friend.

Hi Don~  Great video.  I've tried xtranormal once and haven't been back, but your video reminds me that it's a great tool to teach and educate the public in a fun way!  Congrats on the 300K.  I'm hoping to get there by the end of 2011!

Congratulations on 300,000! That's great.

I love It is addictive. I don't go there much, but when I do, I spend way too much time on the site.

Hi Don, someone not too long ago had done a blog here on AR about the back links, I thought I had bookmarked it but can't seem to find it.  Try searching for it, I am fairly certain it was within the last 2 months.
