The ActiveRain Video Blog - "Video In Review" and Challenge

By
Education & Training with Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty

In addition to some of my other tasks and projects here in the rain, one of them is to make sure the ARVideo Blog keeps rockin and rollin.  Searching the web and all the Video hosting sites for good Video can be a daunting task at times.  I was wondering if you might be interested in helping me out?

I am searching the "World" and our community for more video.  You know the ones I'm talking about right?  Where are they?  Everywhere!  Youtube, Google, Yahoo etc.  When you happen to come across a good video and you feel it's feature worthy, please send me a link.  (If you're not sure, send me a link anyway)

The five Video types and styles I'm looking for are:  Real Estate Stories, Marketing, Technology, Local Features, Educational and of course Other. "Other" meaning open to ideas and suggestions. :-)


Here are the TOP 20 FEATURED VIDEOS from the AR Video Blog since it started back in Feb.  These were selected based on having the most Hits, Clicks, Views and Comments.  They are the ones that Members and Visitors either found interesting or just liked the most. 

So sit back, take a look at these
, and then....  (see below)

What is your motive for action


                THE VIDEO CHALLENGE - INTERESTED IN EARNING SOME EXTRA POINTS ??

This should be easy and fun.  If you see a video, or have some of your own that you'd like to submit, send the link(s) to me at Brad@ActiveRain.com or YOU CAN PUT A LINK in the comments here.  If that video is selected and featured, you will be awarded some points.  If it gets 20 comments or more, you'll get some additional "Bonus" points, and your video submission will be added to this quarterly "Video In Review." 
Our featured video on ActiveRain is changed every 24-48 hours. 

There's really nothing more you have to do other than send me an email, or post a link here. 

CRITERIA: Video should be in a format that can be embedded into the ARVideo Blog
                       Video should be less that 6 minutes max in length (2-4 minutes preferred)
                      
Video should be clear with decent audio if applicable
                       Video content must stay within the ActiveRain Guidelines and Terms of Service

So get out the popcorn, start searching the web, or open your camera case, and put that baby to use.

This is just one way that you can help to make our community an even better place.  Join me in a community effort to provide "The Best" video content which gives greater value to our members and consumers.  It's the sharing of ideas and information that makes ActiveRain so powerful. 
                                            Help Keep ActiveRain Video Alive and Viral.

Hi Brad...I have bookmarked this Blog for future reference. As for a Video, I have yet to buy a Flip, but plan too. One of the best I've seen was on YouTube from Rages to Riches Paul Potts.

I'm sure one or two of the mebes will have a great real estate video to share here.

Thanks for sharing!

Brad,

Here is are two videos I posted to a localism blog about the Tennessee Aquarium. They are not mine, but were taken from YouTube. One cute, one interesting.

BTW, I just receive my new Vado. The biggest problem I had was getting the battery cover off. And I thought that I had read that it could take stills, but I have not discovered how, and the brief instructions do not mention that.

Thanks for all of the ideas.  I'm now trying to figure out mixpo or some direct mix through AR for the editing piece coupled with a couple of the ideas above.

Tracy - we will be doing some great stuff once ARvideo is fully integrated. If you need help with any of this, just let me know, I'd be happy to help you out all I can.  It is going to be nice to have access to your own video console here in the rain. I think it will be video.activerain.com.

Some great contributions here, some many of your videos have gone up now and been featured, and the video Blog seems to be getting more attention than ever. Thanks so much to all of you for your time and for sending me so many videos. 

Some of you are raking in some extra bonus points and getting double exposure when it's your video that gets featured. Keep em coming and keep having fun. Thanks again.  I have some really good ones for this week. I hope you'll enjoy them. :-)

Mike  - I'll have to check it out.  I forgot about this post, we stopped featuring Videos on the Main AR page, but I'm still interested in seeing what you created. Thanks.  We do use video still in our newsletters, maybe yours will be something we can use there.  Happy Holidays.  :-)

Eileen - we actually discontinued the "Featured" videos on AR a few months ago, but you're welcome to still post any great RE videos you find here, there is a chance we may still use them for our daily newsletters. Thanks.
