Guest Post: Video Blogging

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

Editor’s note: Kelley Skar has been a REALTOR® in Calgary, Alberta for the past three years and has recently implemented social networking as a major part of his business plan. Kelley started out like any other REALTOR® knocking on doors, doing mail outs & open houses, advertising in print newsletters, etc. He is now doing 100% of his marketing online, including self promotion, and now has a solid internet marketing plan for all of his listings. Kelley incorporated a daily video blog series titled The Calgary Real Estate Connection into his plan 2 months ago to not only provide good solid information, but more importantly, to build relationships between potential clients/customers and himself.

Abbotsford Video From Carlson Media

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

Justin Carlson sent me a note about his new videos that he produced for RE/MAX. Here is the first one about Abbotsford, BC. For all you RE/MAX agents selling there, might be a good one to post on your websites.

At the beginning of July, Carlson Media was approached by RE/MAX to produce a series of web videos highlighting the different area’s of the valley, starting with Abbotsford, BC. After 2 beautiful days of filming in 30 degree weather, 20 water bottles and a sunburn later, we were able to capture some beautiful footage of this ‘City in the Country’.

RE/MAX: Abbotsford from Carlson Media on Vimeo.

UPDATE: I forgot that Vimeo does not like real estate content and blocks some of their videos on real estate sites. I have asked Justin for the video on a different player so that you can see it here. In the meantime just pop over to his blog to see it. (this is one of the reasons we created Combustion Video as more and more video platforms don’t want real estate content)

“And Now For Facebook’s Next Trick: Video”

Monday, June 7th, 2010’s Robin Wauters wrote an article today about Facebook’s growth in the video department. As our blog readers know, Ubertor is very much focused on online video. Not only helping our agents create video, but making it easy to upload, syndicate and store it. With much more coming!

From Robin’s article:
“…Facebook has quietly nestled itself in the number 5 spot, just behind Yahoo Sites, Fox Interactive Media and Vevo. According to comScore, Facebook videos currently draw a bigger audience than known names like Microsoft, CBS, Hulu and Viacom.”
