The next segment in our “grow your business with video marketing” series is of the utmost importance. We’ve already discussed Market Update videos and the advantage of positioning yourself as an expert in the field. If you don’t recall, we discussed that successful real estate agents are pivoting their marketing strategy to focus on generating leads online; over 50% of homebuyers and sellers are looking online. Market update videos position you as an expert in your field, but what else?
Surely there’s more to it. In fact, there is; listing videos are just one piece of the puzzle. It is a combination of market update videos and topic videos that will help you grow your business and generate leads online.
What is a topic video?
A topic video brings value to your audience by providing them with insider information or informative nuggets that they can use in their daily life. For real estate agents, regularly posting a topic video related to real estate allows you to further showcase your knowledge about the industry. Regularly providing valuable information to buyers and sellers will help you generate an online audience. Soon enough, buyers and sellers will seek you out because of the topic videos you post online.
An online audience = more listings
We’ve just uncovered another piece to the puzzle! Creating an online audience will grow your business for three reasons:
Increases subscribers and video interactions: more subscribers and video interactions = more leads!
Develop your brand: remember, online buyers and sellers want to work with a real estate agent they trust and they trust real estate agents who give them helpful tips and industry backed information.
Can be used for target marketing: you can target your videos to specific audiences or locations in hopes of reaching a wider audience, quicker. This will expand your marketing reach further than ever before.
