Video taps in to more than the eyeballs, uses other senses brokers have left dormant for too many years. Slide shows are no 30 frames per sec video. No matter how you try to pretty them up with vertigo, hold on in and out Dramamine please smoke and mirrors. Or adding tunes, audio beds that are no way as powerful as you the local real estate expert. Your own voice, own words, one on one. You want connection right? You need video in the real estate arsenal..to trade in the pea shooter for a Gatling gun that works 24/7.

Posted by Andrew Mooers, Northern Maine Real Estate-Aroostook County Broker (MOOERS REALTY) over 4 years ago

I agree with everything you said.  Why are agents afraid to use my service?  I have even offered free High-Def videos to build my portfolio but no takers.  Are Real Estate Video Listings that scary?

Brad, as always, I'm really looking forward to this Webinar. Should be really good content. Oh, by the way, I'm guessing Black Hole got the 2MM views... also, that virtual RE office looked really cool....

Thanks everyone for the great comments, I'm looking forward to Wednesday's class and sharing some really great stuff with ya'll.  We do try to record these sessions and will eventually create and have an archive library available.  Until then, we will be doing some repeats of the classes and sessions that are in high demand, this being one of them. 

I'm sorry I can't reply to each of your comments here today, but during the ARU sessions, many questions will get answered regarding video cameras, embedding styles and techniques etc, and the chat box will be open to the first 100 attendees that show up.  We currently have over 200 signed up for this class so come early if you want to take advantage of that chat option. 

We also have a Q&A toward the end of the class, so feel free to use that option as well.  Here's a little video trick we'll show you as well, how to embed a video in the comments of your Blog post.

Brad, That is a great presentation of videos! Even though my favorite is the Phillips, Craig & Dean song (wiping tears).. I would guess the Black Hole has the most views on YouTube...

Webinar sounds great.  However, it does not mesh with evening meetings with clients in EDT time zone.  Will this webinar be archived for later availability?

I agree with Pat and Steve above, can we get a replay for later viewing?

Posted by Steven Pahl, Real Estate Consultant Tampa, FL 813-319-6423 (Keller Williams Tampa Properties) over 4 years ago

I will try to record this for the archive library which we hope to have up someday soon, in the meantime, I will also do a repeat class in the near future at a different time since many of you can't make this one. 

I'm really excited to announce that we have over 300 already signed up and registered.  There are still a few seats left...

Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow, thanks.  :-)

Brad,

You are the man!  I first learned from you how to embed YouTube videos into my blog.  And, just recently. I have learned how to convert a virtual (slide) tour into YouTube format, but I haven't actually shot videos for real estate.  Perhaps this class will help me do it.  See you there.

Bummmer I wish I could make your webinar today..let me know if you are recording it and saving it for review.

Posted by Jeanna Martinez (RE/MAX Access) over 4 years ago

I'm thinking it's the one with the water--first one on the right hand side. Anyway, I get your point that video is important. After reading Crush It!, I know that I should use it a lot more than I do.

Posted by Melissa Zavala, Broker, Escondido Real Estate, San Diego County (Broadpoint Properties) over 4 years ago

Hey all, I recorded this session to share with you, but my computer kept wanting to "update" and restart during the class and recording session.  I kept hitting the button "retart later" and all of a sudden my computer just restarted on it's own.  All that to say this, unfortunately I lost the recording of this class but will do a repeat in the next week or two for those of you who couldn't make it. 

I apologize profusely for the inconvenience not to mention I'm a little pissed off at Microsoft for taking matters into their own hands and disregarding my intructions until the video was fully downloaded.  Thanks for understanding, I'll setup another repeat webinar shortly. 

Thanks.  :-)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad 707.646.1876 (To Be Announced...) over 4 years ago

Brad, 

I love your comment on the video with the most hits is not the one you think it is.  Half of the big challenge is to figure out a bit of creativity and how to entice folks.  Video helps.  I know, I know I need to do more!!!

All the best, MIchelle

Hi Brad-- I got stuck in a meeting.. Was this recorded?  Is there any way to get the information.?

Posted by Joan Whitebook, Consumer Focused Real Estate Services (BHG The Masiello Group) over 4 years ago

Thanks Lori - it was fantastic having you there.  I missed most of the chat since I was busy flapping my jaws in the breeze during the class, but after, I did get a chance to go back and read some of it.  I'd have to say ya'll were having more fun than a group should be aloud to have during a class.  Wait a second....was anyone even paying attention to the professor??? hahaha~

Now I'm really starting to sound like a teacher... OMGosh!!  lol~ 

Glad that HTML trick helped you out.  :-)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad 707.646.1876 (To Be Announced...) over 4 years ago

One of the things we talked about today was spreading your videos around and getting additional exposure.  This post is a great testiment to just another way of exposing your videos to other audiences and traffic.  I used these videos just as a sample for this post, but due to the amount of views and the number of comments, each of these videos have risen up and increased in not only views, but clicks, replays, forwarding, etc. making them somewhat viral no?  Add to that fact, the 9 Reblogs, and there you have it.  A great way to use your ActiveRain Blog and youtube video to increase traffic, new visitors, and get greater exposure to a "larger than your own" audience.  I hope this make sense cents?

A Special thanks to all of you who could make it today, and also to these 9 friends for reblogging my post, I love you man!!  :-)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad 707.646.1876 (To Be Announced...) over 4 years ago

Joan - sad to say, here's the answer.... we'll have another one shortly though.  :)

Here's another way to get video's out there, if you use gmail, the attached videos will show up in the receivers email and can also be watched right there within the email.  That's a pretty cool way to share videos with those still using email.  :-))

The class was great, and I'm just starting experimenting with video.  I feel like I've been locked away in a closet.   Thank you for sharing with us.

Hey Rich - this one was on the 7th, but we are doing another next wednesday for those who missed this one.  Here's a link to the ARU Calendar where you can register.  Not sure where you got the 20th though, look forward to seeing you next week.

This looks like it would have been a great class.  Any chance it will be offered again?

At first I always thought that Youtube was where concert videos and music videos went, I didn't see the real value in it. But recently I have been doing a lot with Youtube videos. Now I can see why they are so popular and help out so much!

A heartfelt thanks. I have so much to learn about videos and utube.  This is a great starting point.

Videos are something that I have really yet to fully implement.  I am currently researching this in more detail as my business plan is being revamped.
