  • Give out the “Call to Action” to call or text you for more information about the subject of your video.

Text for Info Lead Capture

Best Practices for Real Estate Video Marketing

Now that you have video marketing ideas, here are some other tips to help you get real estate leads and engagement from your videos.

Remember Real Estate is Local

Location. Location. Location. This is why we recommend you shot the videos at the most recognizable locations.

Be sure to mention the city or location name in the video to get picked up in the transcriptions for SEO ranking purposes.

The thumbnail image should be the front of the location to catch people’s attention while scrolling in video newsfeeds.

Why REALTORS Should Do Facebook Live Videos

Facebook research shows that people will spend 3X more time watching a Facebook live video vs. a pre-recorded one.

Facebook live tips:

  • Shoot Facebook lives that introduce and share your longer pre-recorded videos.
  • Download your Facebook live videos and re-post onto other video platforms.

Boost Your Business Page Facebook Live Videos

If you do a Facebook live from your business page, you can then promote the live video via paid Facebook video ads.

Create Community Based Youtube Channel for Your Real Estate Business

One of the best examples of becoming the real estate digital mayor is Kyle Whissel of Whissel Realty who has done an incredible job with his YouTube channel East County Eats.

How to Add Transcriptions to Your Marketing Video

You must add video transcriptions to all of your videos.

  • 86% of all videos are watched without sound.

Youtube and Facebook both add transcriptions automatically to videos.

If you need transcriptions for a produced video, you can use Rev.com.

You will simply upload your video to rev and they will create a transcription file. That video transcription file is then added back to your video.
