TECH TIP THE WEEK!

Video is still the king of content; but, are you using it effectively?

  1. Switch up listing tours with other information (community happenings, preparing your home for sale, etc.)
  2. Be consistent! Otherwise your audience is hit or miss
  3. Create great titles
  4. Ask for subscribers
  5. Include a call to action (call for showing, subscribe to my youtube channel, download the document, sign up for the newsletter, etc.)
Did you complete your mandatory code of ethics? Check your member education record to ensure its been reported to BAR.
