YouTube Thursdays - Spreading Holiday Cheer, Uniquely Yours

Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

YouTube Thursdays - Spreading Cheer in Your Unique Style  


Tuning in to Your Style  


You've heard us say this before. And, more importantly, you hear it a lot from marketing and branding experts. Authenticity is huge in your marketing. That includes video marketing. Genuine beats slick any day. 


For some reason, we missed this video last year. Hannah Williams first shared it, and we recently found her post. Thanks Hannah!  So happy we did too, as we really love Sheldon's style in this holiday video.  Talk about a big personality. 


The take-away for us, his authenticity. Using a sense of humor, and an ability to carry a tune, results in this fun video featuring a version of an old Christmas classic. He's also smart to use his "British Agent" status to set himself apart from the crowd. 




What are your unique traits? The thing, or things that set you apart from other agents. A sense of humor? Do you play an instrument? Sing a decent tune? Think about how you can incorporate more of your personality in your videos - especially during the holidays. Tis the season to warm hearts and/or spread some cheer.  


YouTuber of the Week 


Sheldon Neal is a member of Active Rain, but hasn't blogged since 2015. Perhaps if we subscribe to his YouTube Channel and show some renewed support he'll come back from time-to-time, if only to share a new video with us.  That would be fun. 


 Much like Anita Clark 's Facebook Fridays, we encourage you to subscribe to each other's YouTube Channels - and take a minute to "like" or leave a comment. You can also add your own YouTube Channel in the comments below, and ask for subscribers. Be sure to subscribe back though - it's quid pro quo

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.

Great video! Sheldon is a hoot! It conjured up all sorts of ideas for a video. Wish I could sing (well, I can, but it is not video worthy!), but this did get the wheels churning for some future ideas.

Hi Debb and Bernie:

Sheldon's video is such a great example of being authentic...he has such a great style in every video of his I have seen! No way would I sing on a video...and no one would want to listen to me either. It will just have to be something else authentic. LOL

Love it, Debb! I remember seeing this last year and beaming from ear-to-ear! Sheldon and I go back a long way and, in fact, call each other siblings! He is as genunie as they come and if you follow his FB page, his clients LOVE him! 

His wife is in radio and they are one spectacular couple - love them and love his videos. Thanks for sharing that here and putting a permagrin on my face again!

We do more than plant yard signs, attend closings. Today's real estate professional is a media stream provider... the blogs are helpful, time saving, show you around the local surroundings from an insider perspective. We are tour guides on where to eat, sleep, what there is to do, etc. Your videos are a broadcast of the local events, the open house on demand tours. You and I feed the portal,, the home town public access information channel. Your still images build and tell a story too about what is it like living here, investing here, the weather, everything. Be the cub reporter, the Walter Cronkite's that's the way it is, the welcome wagon from the C of C as down to Earth as possible right Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD ? Selling the area, not just isolated real estate listings as if they exist in a vacuum.

Sheldon Neal is a man of many talents. I remember when he was here on AR, he had this great thing going where everytime he sold something, he would photograph himself with a SOLD sign in all original places.
