Use of Videos in Property Marketing is the Subject of the Lead Article in This Week’s “Video Marketing Weekly.”

video in property marketing

This week we have another great compilation of articles about the use of video marketing on the internet.

The lead article this week is titled “3 reasons to use video in property marketing.”

Have you considered the use of videos in property marketing? To give you the understanding of what you can accomplish when creating property videos, video marketing is yet another way to do this.

This article is written by an author from an Australian video company, but the principle applies to the US as well. He or she is right in saying that showing videos in property marketing is a growing trend and can really help sell homes.

Video has quickly become a vital marketing tool for businesses of all kinds. It is the quickest way to share information. It’s not just fast, it’s emotional and convincing. In this article, the author shares 3 reasons to use videos in property marketing. He also explores how we can attract more buyers and sellers for our businesses.

Using Videos to Advertise Real Estate – Videos in Property Marketing

We must admit that we disagree with the author on one point. When he or she says “I like to include a mini agent-vendor interview where necessary, and also include some narration from the agent throughout the video. This is where the agent can really delve into the main drawcards and create immediate attraction from the browsing buyers” we are not in agreement.

We think this is a bad idea for creating an appealing video for the property. Using agents to do narration looks amateurish – because it is. If you want the video to look and sound great, have the agent write the script to include important selling points about the property. But have a professional narrator add his or her voice.

The only advantage of having the agent do the narration is to pander to the agent. For the video company, this may well get future video production business from that agent. But it’s not aesthetically correct.

Videos in property video marketing are one of the best ways to appeal to the potential customers. Poor video marketing methods can turn off a buyer or seller just as soon as they see it.

Whether you are looking at doing videos in property marketing or not, we would be delighted to put our more than 3 decades of video production and video content marketing expertise to work for you.

Success with Live Video is the Subject of the Lead Article in This Week’s “Video Marketing Weekly.”

success with live video

Live video streaming has become an influential force in the world of digital marketing. Live video helps you to get in touch with your audience in real-time. It allows you to interact with your audience and be able to become a part of the conversation with them– live.

This is an important part of any content strategy.

The lead article this week is titled “2018 State of Social Report – Success with Live Video”.

This article says success with this tactic yields some very interesting insights. While success with live video is not easy to accomplish, it seems from their article that success does not depend on the frequency of  output. They conclude that success with live video seems to come from the relevance of content, something we have always maintained.

If you want to appeal to your audience, you need to have a clear idea of who they are and what they want. This applies, whether you are looking for success with videos that are webcast live, or pre-recorded and edited ones. See our earlier blog post on the topic

“Live Video is a Growing Trend”

As per this “State of Social Report 2018,” its use is growing year over year. Their research is based on interviews with over 1,700 social media marketers. Live video is six times more effective than non-live videos according to reports published by Facebook. By using this technique, you share your face, your voice, expressions and answer questions live. This builds confidence and creates an environment of transparency.

A word of caution, however. Live video is not an efficient medium if you only have a small audience. It can take a very long time for a small company to ever get traction, if at all.

While you can post a recording of the video later, the impact and novelty of live video is best expoited when you have lots of clients (or potential clients) watching live.

When you integrate live video into your sales and marketing process your customer gets what they want – if you give it to them. So live video has become one of the most effective ways to stand out and connect with an audience. It quickly conveys meaning and emotion.

Whether you are looking at doing live video or pre-recorded ones, we would be delighted to put our more than 3 decades of video production and video content marketing expertise to work for you.

So be sure to let us know if we can help you set the targets and strategies for your live video content marketing.

Quality Video Content is the Subject of the Lead Article in This Week’s “Video Marketing Weekly.”

Quality Video Content

Video is a powerful storytelling tool. It is an incredible way to create new and interesting ideas and information. Quality video content drives viewers into deeper, more satisfying relationships 0between your brand and its audience.

If you are a just a beginner, here are some terrific tips for starters.

The lead article this week is titled ” 5 Tips for Creating Quality Video Content Even If You’re Clueless How to Begin”.

This article focused on the area of self-promotional live-streaming videos. However, the principles are the same for creating quality video content with pre-recorded video. To have a successful video, you always want to define your audience and give them what they want. We emphasized that the failure to define your audience was the #1 mistake that dooms video projects.

Keep Your Video Short.

Shorter videos can lead to more complete views, which Google and YouTube love for SEO. But more importantly, it suits our busy lives, brief attention spans and the need to consume content easily and quickly. If every live-video content is in 10- to 15-minute chunks, you should know precisely what you want to talk about. If you want people to watch your videos, especially more than one, keep them short.

About 75 Million people in the U.S. watch online videos every day. By 2019, internet video traffic will account for 80% of all consumer internet traffic. So, If your content doesn’t grab their interest within first few seconds, then there is probably no chance they will continue to watch or read what you have to say.

Sales funnels are the topic of the lead article on video marketing from this week’s the Video Marketing Weekly from Penrose Productions.

sales funnelSales funnels and the videos that should used at each place in the those sales funnels are the focus of the lead article in this week’s Video Marketing Weekly. Sales funnels are crucial to online marketing, and companies need to be aware of how to best move their customers deeper into the funnel.

For a definition of sales funnels, please see an earlier blog post on our blog.

The lead article is titled “5 Types of Video Content Perfect for Each Stage of the Customer Journey.”

In the article, the author suggests that educational videos should be used and the top of the funnel, and explainer videos can best be used in the middle of the funnel. In addition, testimonial and demos should be used at the bottom of the funnel.

While in general we have no big argument with the suggested types of videos placed in the sales funnel, we would argue that the type of video used is more dependent on the type of audience.

For example, we do lots of work in the BtoB space and when a potential buyer enters that sales funnel in a field such as high tech, it is typically with a high degree of knowledge and understanding. As such, the buyer does not need the extensive education suggested by explainer videos in the article.

We would be delighted to help you pick the right approach to videos for your sales funnel – based in large part on the sophistication of your buyers.

Over our 3+ decades in video production, we have tons of experience helping businesses craft just the right approach and appeal to their audience. Our expertise in both video and business has earned us the knowledge and ability to get businesses pointed in the right direction for their video efforts for their sales funnels.

We exist as a company to be able to put our 35+ years of video production and marketing background to work for companies of all sizes.
