YouTube is not just phenomenon anymore. It is here to stay and continues to become popular everyday. Where is the first place that someone searches for a house on the Internet. You’re correct. Google. Who owns YouTube? Google. Do you see where we’re going with this? If you’re not on YouTube yet with your real estate listings, you have not yet tapped into a free resource of billions of viewers. Many of these viewers are probably searching for a house to purchase or rent right in your area. The best free marketing is with video. What you don’t know yet is how to get videos done for cheap or for free to take your real estate business to levels you’ve never witnessed yet.
You don’t need to be a Hollywood producer to make great videos. Anyone can make a slideshow with photos on a personal computer. What you are after is a video with moving images, music and a voiceover that will set your videos apart from the rest of what is out there. The more creative that you are in selecting your video package for real estate marketing, the more results that you can achieve. It’s not hard to get your videos made. Let’s get started.
How to Get Videos Made for Your Listings
A couple of mouse clicks and a little bit of your time can get you an awesome video at Animoto. This easy to use website will let you create a video with your own photos that is up to 5 minutes in length for NO COST. If you want you can add their stock images, music tracks and limited special effects to any video that you create.
