You know there are 750 million members of Facebook and having your Maine real estate listings in front of all those eyeballs is important.And that using real full motion video and natural sound to build, support the engagement, experience is key too right? So social blogging the property listings, the local community Maine events is a shoe in with the you tube video posts that aggregate feed wherever you point the media stream.
Missy Caulk, one of our esteemed Active Rain and other platform colleagues had shared a little frustration, concern with me recently.Stating one of her first videos, real 30 frames or higher per second with sound productions took over four hours to complete. And further reacted with a something has to change to be able to incorporate, weave more real videos in to the marketing of her local Michigan properties, local events.
The productions get easier as the learning curve planes out, levels, settles down. Just like when you pinned on the first blue and gold "R" and strapped on the utility belt as a real estate agent, broker with the same hard working alphabet letter on the belt buckle.
As the routine develops, the skills increase and you find a rhythm to make real estate production conveyor belt spin faster, more efficiently.
The skill sets develop in editing the mental story board going in also shape the way you shoot the loops coming out.
Before you close the door in the editing room and start cutting, working on transitions and audio of what stays, gets rendered, uploaded to all your video platforms in the final print.
Knowing care in what you collect in the field, at the property or local event in this part of the production correlates directly to the rest of the video dog and pony whenever you make the camera red light blink.
Today I read an Active Rain blog post on the need for real video to be used in the branding of the agent, broker, REALTOR.
I agree but caution that a little less helping of the agent, broker, REALTOR and more focus of the video, the natural "sound" of the property listings.The communities the sticks and bricks are in are as important as the local events that happen there on a regular basis. The hit record and talking on and on in continuous real estate agent, broker filling the entire screen, hanging out of a car or driving in eight lanes of rush hour traffic is like death by powerpoint most of us have suffered along the way during REALTOR meetings, workshops.
Same warning, ten cent dime advice about thinking you are going to shoot the entire property video continuous loop from the drive in the yard to the last room on the second floor in one gallop. Short and sweet is the best advice in most endeavors involving the fast paced world of listing, marketing, selling real estate. No matter where you are on the planet.
