2) Don't accept that everyone giving real estate video channel advice knows what they are talking about with their many opinions.

Check, verify and study whoever is a mouthpiece for YouTube real estate video advice.

Go to their channel and sample the productions as you navigate around whatever they shoot, edit, render and upload for videos.

3) Who would benefit from any YouTube real estate video channel? If no one, crickets happen. When only a few in the audience show up in the view count, it is because the channel is too limited, stale or just undeveloped.

Do you make money with your channel on YouTube?  It seems that you would have quite a following with the high-quality videos that you produce.  Do you post on X?  It seems that there is going to be big payouts for the influencers that post on X.

The videos are the number one marketing tool bar none. So yes, make money with the YouTube video channel success but no, for monetization each one for outside advertisers to hitch a ride Brian England ... the drone, on ground and inside videos are all to strengthen the brand, to deliver information best. The video links get shared on all the social media channels as soon as they are uploaded and go online.

Wow - you've created 1,400 video over the last 16 years - that's dedication. In 3 years, I've created 104. SEO and Thumbnails are important. Never, ever, create a video without understand how many folks are searching for a specific SEO search term (word or phrase). If no one is searching for something, don't create that video. 


I love this essay. Youtube leads are the highest quality out there as the prospect already knows you! I outsource all my editing to eliminate that obstacle.


Thanks for this great essay - one piece of video content can create dozens of other forms of content you can share on all other modalities. Video rules!

     If your YouTube video channel is a wall of close up goofy selfies, talking heads, no wonder less than a couple hundred views a production.

     Long tail key word strings need SEO consideration too because less competition, higher return. Longer videos like beefy blog posts for longer engagements. You took the time to give them more. 

     Remember in sports, pass the puck, guide the ball to the weaker side where all the players are not bunched up? You stock the video shelves with hundreds of productions like a library of information.

     Would you eat at a restaurant many times if not much to "dine on" ? You had to hit a drive through on the way home because still hungry?

     Always see way better audience results when the channel operator turns the camera around and covers something worthwhile. Point, collect the local properties, the local community events. 

     Viewers, listeners want the local new listings to tour, the what to do for fun community videos. Not to doze off watching a screen filled with a talking head.. only the talking head droning on. That is not useful to your audience who is way too busy for that waste of time.

Simple run and gun, one after another local property listing and community videos of all kinds. Just do those for best results.

Good morning Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573 ,

You are the king of videos and we so appreciate you taking the time to give exceptional tips ! Its astounding that over 16 years you have created 1,400 videos! You show us how utilizing video content you can gain business and name recognition!

     Made way more videos than 1400 but they are not all on YouTube channel Dorie Dillard Austin TX . Facetime videos are private, sometimes a grand opening for just an audience of one, two, only a family. Streamed tons of those during COVID. Follow up to the long form video for buyers buying just based on video. 

     And before everyone was on YouTube the second largest search engine, sending a disc with video, other format deliveries happened too. Come a long way since pack of 8 black and white Polaroids you point, shoot, pull out, wait, peel off. (Then seal to protect.)

     Do whatever moves the information best to expand your audience size with greater reach and frequency is the goal. How to do it changes daily with technical advancements. Stay current or ahead of the curve to avoid becoming a dinosaur wearing a rusted faded blue R.

Lucky to live in a border town where I-95 bolts on to the Trans Canada Atlantic Provinces highway! The ruby red sand and farm soil, the sapphire blue ocean water, the emerald green vegetations of PEI. It's drop gorgeous just like the facets of Maine. PEI potatoes are king just like in Maine spuds!

     Thank you Edward (Ed) Silva, 203-206-0754 ! If you think "value based" instead of "sale" your video channel will improve. If you think "boy, these show me around the property, the unique community they are parked in videos save everyone time".

     Keywoods, strong title, wired just so description all part of the video rocket fuel. Videos make your audience reach grow way beyond the local zip code and transport those channel viewers to your hometown. To tag along with you to a farmers market in Maine for example.

     Come on, let's see what's fresh, to meet the local farm to table growers. Videos give you a taste of what would it be like if I lived where Ed hangs his hat and goes round and round in real estate circles.

Sure will Jeff Dowler, CRS . I got the call from Eileen to schedule one. Just back from PEI Canada vacation and it'll be a nip and tuck, roller derby week to get back on plane. Ever been to Prince Edward Island Canada, the country's smallest province with the 8 mile bridge to access?

"Not a huge fan of YouTube"... you are fixing something, google it on video search and ta da, explained how to quickly repair something. You are thinking of taking a vacation... do you want to read read read (head hits desk as you fall asleep... KONK) or holding your mobile phone while riding the commuter into the city you are beamed to say Maine? YouTube#shorts are the new snippet to quickly tease you into what you are missing in less than a minute Endre Barath, Jr.

     Chuck Willman ..Thank you for stopping by! Videos are so so worth the effort and no other marketing tool works so hard. Properties deserve real full motion videos, not slide shows. Sellers expect videos for higher priced, quicker sales with a way way larger audience.

     Buyers will get videos from you or another little red hen agent in your market that puts in the energy and effort to deliver the open house on demand virtual tours. Just uploaded this new real estate listing video and overnight there will be hundreds, thousands of showings around the clock.

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 ... the property listing videos help you "show" more properties. Not one at a time, thousands at a time. Videos save everyone time in the show and tell to showcase your properties, your community flavor.
