Renowned speaker and broker-agent Brian Copeland will present a webinar on building your brand through video for the Secrets of Top Selling Agents Webinar on Wednesday, April 27, 2011 . Brian, who is affiliated with Village Real Estate Services in Nashville, TN, is the first documented real estate agent to use YouTube to promote a listing. I had the pleasure of interviewing Mr. Copeland about the role video marketing plays in his real estate business. According to him, “about 20-30 buyers came to him from video marketing in 2009.” That’s a great return on investment from this marketing tactic, especially in addition to the potential referrals he could see!
Before getting into the “how-to” of video marketing, there is one key reason you should know on the value of implementing video into your strategy. And that is because consumers are online and they expect to see real estate professionals there! As we mentioned in our article YouTube for Real Estate Professionals, approximately 84.6 % of internet users in the U.S, viewed online video in December 2010. Just think locally how many individuals that translates to!
