Have to get off my comfort zone and start using video. Thus far, I've only used still photos converted into visual tours and then converted into videos -- but not real videos.
Now that the Flip phone has died a natural death, what do realtors use besides the video camera on their phone?
Re-blogging in case some of you are in the same boat and would like to know more about video. This bog has some really good links, too!
Learning is a constant process....
If the chances of a search engine picking up your real estate video link increases 50 times why wouldn't you embrace the media as one powerful property marketing tool, weapon?When you see the front page search engine index results and one or two video mini players appear on the Droid, lap top or computer desk top screen, can you resist toggling and watching, listening?
Delivery of a message using the eyeballs and the ear drums is way more powerful than read, read, read.
It's like your favorite plate of food with the meat cut up, the potato peeled, buttered with just the right seasoning of salt, pepper or whatever set in front of you.All you have to do is pull the trigger, start the video of local community events, the real estate you list, want to sell.
Start small, with a local event you are at anyway in your zip code. Nothing real estate about it, just the local flavor, spark of the community you serve. The viewer, listen of your video you shoot, edit, render and upload to a variety of platforms gets to meet the local people. Is right along side your friends, family, neighbors. Been invited to tag along and sample the event you fire up the video camera to capture. Plan to do the event each year so one by one you become the local "broadcaster" in an area that might not have one to promote the community happening. Here are two local Maine canoe race videos from this year, a few years back. Different approach, but getting the viewer, listener out on the spring water on a local canoe, kayak race showing all types of competitors.
From the leisurely family paddlers to the black belt out to win something plastic and gold plated.And everything in between.
