How to Outsource your Real Estate Video Marketing
Step 1: Decide on what type of videos you want to create
Starting your real estate video marketing can be a daunting task. For many people, figuring out what type of videos to create is the most difficult step in the process. There are a few things to keep in mind when you are deciding on the type of videos you want to create.
The first thing you should focus on real estate video marketing is whether you want to create a promotional video or an educational video. Real estate agents will usually go for the following 2 options:
1. Property walkthrough videos (these can be shared across all forms of social media).
2. Youtube videos about your local area to position you as an authority in your city.
To get an explanation of the difference between these 2, make sure to watch the video on How to Outsource your real estate video marketing at the top of this page.
Step 2: Decide on your video style
Go to Youtube and search for examples of real estate videos that you like. We would suggest getting at least 3-4 examples of videos where you like the editing style and would like to replicate it for your real estate video marketing. Decide on the colours that you want all your text graphics to be. What type of music do you want in the background of your videos? What sort of intro and outro do you want? Put all of this info in a Google doc that you can share with your video editor.
Step 3: Film the footage (either of the property or of you) for your real estate video marketing
For the property walkthrough videos, you will need a variety of footage including:
- A walkthrough of the house, from the driveway through to the backyard, sweeping every room with a slow left to right motion.
- B Roll close up shots of anything artistic or unique about the home
- Shots of the street and scenery outside
- Multiple shots of main areas of the house, panning in different directions besides left to right
If you are also making Youtube videos about your area to position yourself as an authority, you will need:
- B roll footage of the area you are talking about (either from walking or driving the streets)
- Footage of you talking about the area (usually talking head)
- Footage of any particular landmarks or attractions you want to talk about in your video
Step 4: Find a video editor
Once you’ve determined the style of your video + filmed the footage, you can start looking for your video editor. Wondering how to hire a virtual assistant that you can use as a video editor? The key to finding a video editor is making sure you sort through all of the candidates to look at their examples of work, previous experience, and editing style. This person should be able to produce a quality video in a short amount of time.
Step 5: Make any final revisions
In the early stages of working with your real estate video editor, it’s going to be trial and error. You have to take risks and do things you’ve never done before. The editor won’t know exactly how you like it, especially in the beginning so you’ll need to make some rounds of revisions and give feedback on the first few drafts until it’s perfect.
