Turn Powerpoint Presentations Into Videos

By
Real Estate Agent with Helping people in transition 210155

Hey my fellow Rainers!

I came across a great freebie the other day and thought it would be perfect to post here to help my colleagues out. It's called E.M. Free PowerPoint Video Converter

We all have varying ways to present ourselves during listing presentations. Some of us have a brag book, some of us just give straight CMA's, and some of us are just born naturals who go in there and nail it every time with nothing more than a smile and a handshake.

For those of us who need some extra tools to secure that listing, here's a freebie that can convert a Powerpoint slide show into a movie file that can be played with I-Tunes or Windows Media Player. Actually there are many other avenues you can utilize this freebie, but those are the two most popular programs that any PC or MAC user has access to.

It's very easy to use, takes only a few minutes to get started and the results are pretty good.

I hope whoever reads this blog, will check it out and share with everyone how they're using it (or considering using it) to help their Real Estate business.

Enjoy!

Sounds good, though I don't really use power point much, but I'll keep it in mind

One of the areas we tend to stray is where the focus of the listing presentation should be.   Over the years, I have learned that I need to be careful about adding too much fluff and not substance, especially with higher end homes.  It is very easy to get caught up in the next best listing presentation, but the bottom line is the presentation of you.  The listing is not won by the most impressive presentation package, it is one by the most impressive presentation.  There is a huge difference.  A realtor friend of mine who consistantly produced over $20mm a year in Austin has never made a written listing presentation.  Though I do not have the personality to pull this off as she has done, it is always a reminder that the presentation is about me....and not the fluff.

I do use power point, and really like it. I am excited to be able to convert it to a movie. Will check it out tonight.

About listing presentations. I am not a real estate agent, but a successful local broker was reviewing their successful training program with me Tuesday.

His listing presentation was all about building the relationship and about the seller. It made sense to me, and power point would seem to be a useful tool in preparing customized presentations.

Possible feature post here. :)

thanks,

Richard

craig, if you were able to turn your power point presentation into a video, I would have loved to have seen it included here with your post. That way we all could tell how it shows. It is an idea, but I think I'll try it. Thank you for sharing.

Great tip Craig!!!  I post my property videos on YouTube and this would be the perfect tool to create a powerful powerpoint message that can be converted to video.  as I am typing more and more ideas of how to use this media are running through my head. :)

Craig,  Thank you so much for posting this information.  I was thinking about converting powerpoint to video this past weekend, but didn't pursue it.  Now I have a direction.

Craig...thanks for the post and information.  I use PowerPoint for my listing presentations and insert video files as part of the presentation (like our company commercial and a sample of my home video tours).  I already use a video editing program that allows me to import any or all powerpoint slides, but I can see where this new little tool gives me another alternative.  I'll check it out!  Thanks!
