Something every realtor should be using

By

Zipvo is continuing to grow.  Many consumers are finding the site and searching through videos of homes in their local communities.  This is a free resource that will enable you to upload videos of the homes you are selling.  The can give you a leg up on some of your competition since...

 1. You can link to these videos from your website.  Give people a chance to view the listings and peak their interest.  Everyone posts pictures of their homes...take the next step and upload videos.

2. When you register for free on the Zipvo website, you have the ability to include a link to your website, helping with your link popularity.

I'd like to get some feedback from any realtors that have uploaded videos.  Thanks and good luck.

Pretty cool site, I just registered and posted a listing under the 30342 zip code.  I believe Zipvo needs to do some work on the programming side, but it is a beta site so they're forgiven.  I did not upload a video because it does not allow you to submit a URL...you must have the file...they might consider allowing this option as most sites will produce a video for the agent rather than having to create a "home-made" video.  Cool nonetheless and another place to post listings!

 Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the feedback Carl,

What did you have in mind 'on the programming side'?

Martin,

I'm using Zipvo now.  The upload was really easy and I use it when I talk to clients.

Thanks
