Video Content, The Facts
In 2016, 37% of marketers said that social media posts with visuals or video content were the most important and effective form of content for their business, second only to blogging (38%).
Analysts have predicted that by the end of this year, video content will represent 74% of all internet traffic.
Almost 4 times as many consumers would rather watch a video of a product or service than merely read about it.
Even using the word ‘video’ in an email subject line has proven to improve click-through rates by as much as 65%.
How Can This Form Of Media Help Estate Agents?
When it comes to marketing, video is a must-have—and if you’re in real estate, consider yourself a marketer!
When you’re a salesperson, you need to make customers want to buy your product or service.
For estate agents, the use of this type of content is essential as it showcases what you offer in the best manner. Allowing people to walk through or get a feel for a home online creates a greater level of genuine interest.
There will be many people who like the home, but once they see it, they are put off. This type of content on the website means this is avoided. All customers have seen the property from almost every angle before they decide to view it in real life. This helps to whittle out the non-interested parties, saving agents time and money.
Now is the time for agents who have been putting off video marketing to invest in high-quality material for each property they list. There’s still time to be an early adopter in the industry and beat out competitors who aren’t yet on board with the video trend.
