How To Get Started with ActiveRain Video

By
Education & Training with Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus

It's one for the money, and two for the show three to get ready, it's a go Mixpo! ActiveRain and Mixpo have officially partnered to bring you a powerful new tool and platform for your video editing and video productions. A simple way to create, edit, and produce Video that can be used on your AR Blogs, Profiles, and Websites. Mixpo is now available for ActiveRain Members!

CLICK HERE TO SEE HOW MIXPO VIDEO WORKS FOR YOUR BUSINESS!

While in the introductory stage of incorporating Mixpo Video, you can still sign up for a monthly subscription at a very low price, or you can save a few bucks by subscribing annually. "You mean there's a fee?" Yes there is, but it's a minimal fee for what you'll get, and it is only to help defray the cost of implementing and supporting the application for all the ActiveRain members here.

If you would like to get a jump on the "New Wave" of Real Estate Video 2.0 and give Mixpo a run, you can set it up NOW!. For $29/month, or $290/year (that's two months free) we can get you access directly to Mixpo. Since their isn't currently a way to directly purchase the product, you will need to use the ActiveRain Paypal. You can transfer the money to ActiveRain's Paypal account by going to Paypal.com. Use the email address billing@activerain.com. Once you make the transfer, send me or Bob Stewart an email with a copy of your receipt, and we will get you activated right away. (within 24 hours) EDIT: NEW UPDATE: AR Video is now fully integrated into ActiveRain. To sign up, just click on the video reel in the toolbar of any new post or comment. This post was created before we implemented the AR Video Platform. It is now fully Integrated. (New Post Coming Soon, or this one to be completely re-done) Edited 9/11/2008

As we go through the integration (speculating about 4-6 weeks), anything that you produce on the 'Mixpo' console will eventually show up on your video.activerain.com account once the integration is complete. Feel free to email me if you have any specific questions or concerns. I have been testing and working with Mixpo since my first day here at ActiveRain, and I am happy we are ready to finally roll it out to members. Here are just some of the Features and Benefits I have noted using the Mixpo tools, editing and on-line production console:

Some "Power" Points You May Want to Know About and Consider

Hi Deb - Mr. DeMille here, lol~

1. You can post to any site you wish, (as long as they allow you the ability to embed video codes) Websites, Blogs etc. as many as you like with no additional fees.

2. Thanks for letting me know the link was bad, I took it out of this post but the process is still the same. Go to Paypal.com and make payment to Billing@Activerain.com. That's it.  We will evetually have it setup where you can pay directly with a CC, but we still hav to integrate Mixpo to video.activerain.com.

That account was specifically setup for ActiveRain/Mixpo subscribers so they'll know what your payment is for.

Just send me the receipt, and I'll take care of the rest for you. Thanks. :-)

Hello Brad! I am currently working with HelloWorld right now... My video site is MyHomeHunter.TV.  I have only produced about 10 video's so far...the thing I like about this site is the fact that you can send video emails with banner links....you can broadcast Live on the internet and of course just record video like these and post to YouTube and AR...the one down fall that I just found out about is when you Embed a video, it automatically plays when you open the web page...so, if all 4 of my blogs open at once...4 of me are talking all at once....so, I must go in tonight and change the video to a click-able Graphic to solve this problem...I get all this for 10.00 per month.

I am going to check out Mixpo and see if they have all of these options too.  There are differences of course...mixpo has the link direct in the video and it seems like it is more user friendly with to all computer users...I am not sure yet.

Do you know anything about HelloWorld?

Thanks Again!

Thanks for posting this info. I've been wondering about doing this type of marketing but wasn't quite sure what to use or how to do it.

Wayne  - AR video is just another option available to our members if you're interested.  There is a fee, and many feel that it is justified for the value in return.  There are some great features in Mixpo that I have yet to see from any other site or service out there.  :-)

****   IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!!   ****

Mixpo and AR Video will be adding a new feature in the weeks ahead, allowing members and subscribers the ability to upload directly to their (VIDEO) library ANY files that have difficulty being uploaded via the normal uploading process. 

This includes all file types, that for one reason or another are not able to upload using AR Video and Mixpo directly.  Look for it coming very soon.  This is an awesome upgrade!  :-)

Thanks

Is this now compatible with the Mac?  According to an email I received, it is, but just want to make sure before I do this again....

 

Mixpo is available to Mac Users now with a server-side transcoding
option (similar to YouTube).  If you utilize the Studio, in the Visuals
tab there is now an "Upload Media to Your Library" option which allows
you to upload to us the source video, we automatically transcode it and
place it in your media library for use in VideoAds.

Fred - they have added a upload file utility for Mac Users like us.  The only issue I see at this point is that the file size was limited to 200 megs.  They may have corrected that now.  :-)

Hi Brad,

I use Wellcomemat.com  I signed up for mixpo and have been paying monthly now for 4 months.  I haven't been able to get it to work.  I would want to add videos to my active rain site, my offsite blog and to my mls.  The little I tried with mixpo was difficult.  It may be myself.  I have been able to use wellcomemat easily.

Do I have to keep paying for the whole year or can I cancel my subscription?  I don't see any way to cancel the auto-pay feature on active rain.  I suppose I could call my bank but would rather work it from the mixpo side.

Marty - if you need some help getting it to work, I'd be happy to help you out.  If you need to cancel, we can work that out for you too.  There should be an option to discontinue in your "Billing" tab on your "My Home" link.  If you need assistance, just let me know, either way, I'll try to help you out.  Thanks.  :-)
