Create a Listing Video with your Phone

Don’t let the current local and national conditions stop you from running your business. Explore ways to get creative and use the tools at your disposal!  With your smartphone, it's easy to create simple marketing videos that promote your properties and engage your audience.

Ways to make your video’s worth watching:

  • Keep your videos to less than two minutes.
  • To add more impact add ‘closed captioning’, this allows users to watch the videos without sound. There are several 'closed captioning' apps available in both Apple and Google Play stores, the cost will vary.
  • Use your video to highlight your personality and showcase the best features of your Listing.
  • Add another element of engagement by making your video part of a contest. Request that viewers leave a comment on your social media page such as “share your favorite home feature for a chance to win a gift card."
