The 1-Minute Real Estate Video Strategy that Can Help You Win More Listings

September 11 2019

Videos are essential for a real estate business--and to put it simply, if you're not doing videos, you're not making money.

If you look at these three facts about video marketing, you'll see why:

  • 80% of viewers recall video ads they saw in the last 30 days.
  • Viewers retain 95% of a message when they watch it in a video (compared to 10% when reading it in text).
  • People and firms using video get 6X more leads.

And real estate marketing videos don't have to be complicated or fancy. You can look just as good as other top agents in your market, boost your word-of-mouth, and get more clients without hiring contractors or buying expensive equipment—all you need is a phone!

Take our "Instant Expert" video strategy for example (see the video above at about 1:40).

It was made using Garry's iPhone X. No mic, no fancy equipment, and no videographer needed. Yet, it's a powerful campaign that's proven to build trust and confidence in your expertise.
