What can you do to leverage video marketing?
Real estate is an extremely personal transaction. Most people don’t want to work with just anyone, they want to work with a real estate agent they “know.” By creating a video with your face on the front, you can show them who you really are. Consumers can get to know you on a more personal basis through your use of video.
Show your real self. Be candid, not scripted. Try out live videos every now and then to increase engagement and to show them what you’re like “real time.”
Show properties. Give them a virtual tour of the property with you front and center. Make them feel like they’re actually taking a tour with you. This can show them what you’d be like to work with.
Show your expertise. Most people want to work with a real estate agent that knows what they’re doing. Show them that you are this person. Share tips and industry knowledge with them. Give them advise that you feel would be useful. As you “freely” give of this knowledge, you’ll show that you know what you’re talking about and that you’re willing and ready to help.
Adding video to your real estate marketing strategy is vital in today’s day and age. Don’t discount it’s importance. Spending a little bit of time each week will be highly beneficial to you and your business.
