YouTube Thursdays - Spreading Holiday Cheer - Part 2

YouTube Thursdays - Spreading Cheer in Your Unique Style  - Part 2 

 

 

 

Last week, we shared a festive video produced by Sheldon Neal. The holiday video coveys a delightful Christmas message, "I'll Get You A Home For Christmas!!" set to the classic tune of "I'll be home for Christmas." While we could all agree to its entertainment value, most of us didn't think we'd be comfortable trying to do our own version of his concept.  

 

And unless, we share many of Sheldon's traits, it wouldn't be a good fit for us anyway. However, Sheldon's video should inspire us to evaluate our own special traits and talents. What are our secret weapons? Something that few, if any, could recreate.  And remember, if we're tapping into authenticity, nobody can truly emulate us. 

 

For our own Christmas video this year, we took inspiration from this month's Active Rain Challenge, Your Craziest Transaction, hosted by Carol Williams and Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS. Our own entry seemed like the perfect fodder for a fun video. We wanted to make sure it carried a holiday message, stayed true to our brand, and ended with a call to action. Here's is The Santa Claus(e). 

 

 

YouTuber of the Week 

 

This week,  we highlight Active Rain member, John McCormack, CRS from Albuquerque, New Mexico, aka The Q-man. John's not as active as he once was in the Rain, but on occasion, he posts a new listing video for us to see. Be sure to subscribe to his YouTube Channel Albuquerque Homes Realty.  Here's one of his community videos highlighting The Albuquerque Botanical Gardens River of Lights. 

 

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 

 

Happy YouTube Thursday!

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”.

You have such an amazing talent. We should talk about having you do a book narration. Your voice is always so soothing. And the video was delightful.
