Video marketing can have a huge effect on gaining and maintaining new clients. Here's why:
50% of interactivity online is video based
YouTube is the 2nd most popular search engine for media
73% of sellers are most likely to list with an agent using video to market themselves versus agents without video
Google ranks video content higher since consumers like video
Once a video is on the 1st page of Google, consumers are 41% more likely to click a video thumbnail rather than a picture or text link
So ultimately, you're utilizing one more tool to bring people to your site. A video keeps the user there longer, gives you a wider window to make a good impression and successfully retain that lead!
This might seem overwhelming, but think about the trade-off you're making by investing in viral marketing. A video that's roughly five minutes long gives you a chance to connect with your potential clients before even shaking their hand. It also demonstrates your expertise as a realtor and a willingness to put your reputation on the line. According to VideoBrewery.com, a real estate group that incorporates video receives 403% more inquiries than those without video. Now, although that might not be the exact number you'll reach, wouldn't you be happy with even double the inquires?
Here's what your consumers want to see:
