4realz Roundtable: Marketing Real Estate with Video

[Note: This turned out to be an awesome conversation…  You can see who participated in the call as well as listen to the conversation at the bottom of this post!]

On this week’s 4realz Roundtable, I’m really looking forward to discussing marketing with video… and in particular, how real estate agents are effectively using video to promote themselves, their communities and their listings.

My concept of video is pretty broad and includes virtual tours… Some of the companies I imagine we’ll cover include ways to market using YouTube, TurnHere, WellcomeMat, Real Estate Shows, Vimeo, MLBroadcast Vidlisting, and Utterz.

PLEASE NOTE:

Because I don’t want to butt the roundtable up too close to the forth of July weekend, I’m MOVED the time to Wednesday, July 2nd.    So, for this week only, please join us at 4pm on Wednesday for what should be a great Roundtable!  As always, the call in telephone number and links to the chat can be found on this page: http://www.talkshoe.com/tc/20339

UPDATE:

We had such a great conversation!  I really want to thank all the people who joined up to take part in the conversation including:

The 1st 4RealzEd event was yesterday and…

4ealzEdI think I’ve recovered enough now to actually post about it! 🙂

Despite our best efforts to be prepared, the day started off a bit rough with a nearby mudslide taking out power in our building in the morning (meaning no hot coffee and no projector) and a 9-car pileup on a nearby freeway slowed me down tremendously. AHHH

So, to say it started rough would be an understatement… But once it started, things seem to get on a roll quickly.

I started with an overview of consumers expectations in a web2.0 world to set expectations for the day… Jim followed up with presentation on optimal features and design for a real estate website. Then it turned back to me for a presentation on social networking… lunch… then another presentation by me on creating value through blogging about communities. And we returned for the day’s finally with Jim giving a engaging presentation on measuring and tracking marketing results to ensure a positive ROI.

All around, it was a wonderful day! And, maybe they were just being nice, but the attendees who talked with me said only good things about the education.

Because I promised attendees I would give them a list of all the sites I mentioned in my presentations (so that they wouldn’t have to ask me to spell out each URL), here is the list for everyone’s benefit.

Consumer Expectations in a Web2.0 World:

Engaging in Social Networking to Earn Clients

Using Blogs to Build Communities

I wasn’t tracking the sites that Jim mentioned, but there were not nearly as many of them in his presentations…

And thanks again to all the bloggers who have helped spread the word about the event, the sponsors who helped us keep the price low and all the attendees who made the day possible!

I received some incredible feedback from all three groups, which is going to lead me to make some changes to the upcoming events (I’ll announce those early next week!). Great stuff all around. Thanks again to everyone!
