(This blog has been updated. The new information is at Real Estate Videos and Virtual Tours.)
I am admittedly, a You Tube addict. Unfortunately, my addiction so far, has not been business related. But as I've been building my "fun" channel, I've been constantly considering how I could use a real estate channel in a way that would be truly beneficial to my real estate listings. I've seen many real estate channels there, but they get very few subscribers or views, and seem to be operated by novices.
I told my manager several months ago, I see no reason why we can't do an entire video of a home, instead of a distorted virtual tour. (I've never been a fan of virtual tours). So I made a video of one of my real estate listings and posted it to my "play" channel. It got great feedback! Everyone said it was a great idea.
So now; how to segue between my real estate web site, which is a template and unable to host a video, and the video idea.Here's my You Tube channel www.YouTube.com/TheSmartChoice
