When I got approached to be interviewed about The Power of Real Estate Video Marketing, I knew the conversation would be packed full of valuable tips for today’s video-first marketing environment.
So we shot it as a #TomFerryShow as well!
And what resulted was 30+ minutes of powerful real estate video marketing tips and tricks.
I’m focusing on some of the highlights and top video tips for real estate here in the blog.

Being There is More Important than Innovating

Some people avoid video because they don’t know how to bring something new to it, or they fear it requires all sorts of creativity and innovation.
What’s more important is just being active in the video space and delivering content.
If you can deliver creativity and innovation, that’s just a bonus.

The Three E’s of Video Marketing: Engage, Entertain & Educate

One of the most important keys to being successful with real estate videos is to be yourself. People will either like you or they won’t, but don’t look at video as if it’s your job to try to convince people to work with you.
Again, it’s important to be yourself. If entertaining people comes naturally, go for it. If it doesn’t, don’t do it. People will know if you’re faking it. Stay in your lane and let your personality shine through – the real you.
This is the game changer. Agents who consistently provide valuable information through video stand out in their markets and become the trusted voice in their local real estate communities. Deliver that value and become the “knowledge broker” for your area.

Quick Hit Do’s & Don’ts

  • Promote engagement – Don’t be afraid to ask for those hearts and likes when shooting a live video


  • Have bad lighting

  • Create a boring thumbnail: You must captivate people and make them want to know more
