Online videos are becoming more and more popular. As an estate agent, it is important to keep up to date with the latest trends in order to stay above the competition.
Here are 5 reasons why you should use video marketing:
Following closely behind Facebook, Youtube is the second largest Social Media Platform with 1 billion monthly active users. Think of the leads you could miss out on if you don’t create video content on Youtube. Can’t think of a video idea? Try giving useful tips and advice or maybe you could upload a video of a featured property. Upload videos regularly to keep users coming back for more.
So you’ve heard the saying, a picture is worth a thousand words right? Well, did you know that a video is worth 1.8 million! How long do you think it would take you to write 1.8 million words? And who would stick around to read it? Creating a short video that’s only 1 minute long can have a major impact on the viewer.
Let’s face it, a page full of text looks boring and with 65% of people being visual learners, a page full of written content would not be retained as well as video content. A video is an easy way for the user to process the information you’re sharing and to keep them more engaged.
