YouTube Thursdays - Video Marketing Can Work!

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

YouTube Thursdays - April 6th, 2022



This week, we are highlighting a couple of posts from Active Rain members. We think both are worthy of your time. The first, is from The Maine Man, Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573.  

It's all about audience engagement on your YouTube channel. It's definitely something we need to work on too. In fact, we plan to go through his post step by step to ensure we're doing all we can to boost views. 

If you think video is not a worthy marketing tool, consider Andy's success. He has the results to prove he know what he's talking about when it comes to real estate video marketing. 


YouTube Video Channel | Real Estate Audience Engagement - Andrew Mooers 

Mimi Foster shared a post recently crediting Craig Daniels for encouraging her to start doing real estate videos. One of her videos went viral, that's always a nice perk.  Plus, she has closed several deals as a result of her video marketing.   

One of the things Mimi wants to focus on this year is re-committing to her video marketing. We are appreciative that she shared a link to help others get a site up and running on YouTube. We agree with Mimi, Karin Carr has very good advice and it's worth your time to take a look at what she offers.

Hello, my friend! You were also very instrumental in getting me set up initially all those years ago! (Almost a decade) But I would never have gotten in front of the camera then (and I still don't want to) but it makes all the difference and you were SUCH an encouragement and help. Hugs to you! Thanks for the shout out.

It definitely can work and it can work even better if it’s authentic and most of the time it does

There would be way way more agents doing real estate videos IF, IF and I repeat IF it was not just the talking head, whipped together in one take productions. Remove the stage fright and stuttering, turn the camera around... capture the property, talk to them in the audio channel background that is 40% of the real estate video connection. The buyer wants to see the property, hear about the community... Get out of the way and turn the camera around showcasing your area, the property listings that deserve full motion real location audio Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD ! Make the property and community the focus of the video presentation! And learn how to edit first and foremost!

Excellent advice, Andrew. Makes me want to improve my standard listing videos and incorporate more community.

Why you are excited about where you live... that's the purpose of the local community flavor videos Toby Barnett ! Provide online what it is like in your area, deliver that to them instead of making them wait to travel to your location. Videos deliver round the clock, in any weather, 24-7-365. They save everyone time... you included.

This is one of those situations where there's more to it than I think but it's also easier to do in general than you probably think

Hi Debb,
Andrew is always a great example for Tubing... YouTubing that is.  HaHa. Did I just make up a new word? 

I loved Karin's video. She is spot on!!!

Video marketing is a major tool to have in your arsenal. Youtube is one of the most used "search Engines" if you put out quality content the leads will come in. Last year I received more active leads from my youtube channel videos than from page 1 google search results on my main keywords.

Thank you Debb and Bernie for continuing to be a catalyst and inspiration for incorporating videos.  And Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573 I know that you've probably written a post about this before but your comment above is exactly what needs to be said. Take yourself out of the video!!! Another good blog topic.
