Real Estate Short Videos Tips for Social Media
Here a few tips to ace real estate short videos for social media:
Make A Fast Introduction
Making a fast introduction (within seconds) will help you keep your audience’s interest. You need to show what the video is about in the first moments of the video or you will lose your audience’s attention.
Educate But Entertain First
To prove yourself as an expert in real estate you need to educate your audience and add value through informational short videos. However, your videos will not appeal to users if they are not entertaining and amusing. Try to convey your messages through interesting trends on social media.
Use Visual Elements to Highlight Key Points
Once your video is played there will be a lot of things going on and users can get distracted easily. To make your short videos as simple and easy to understand as possible try to use visual elements like bubbles and boxes to highlight key points. This will make sure users continue to watch your video and get the message.
Hashtags are an inseparable part of social media. They can be used to make your videos more discoverable and at the same time serve as a tool to group your other videos and classify them under different categories.
TikTok videos are mainly created by following trends in which users create videos with a specific music track. To increase your chances of being seen make sure you pair your video with the currently trending music.
Design for Sound Off
Many users browse social media when they are out with the sound off. Therefore chances are many users will not hear the audio in your short videos. Therefore it is essential to make sure your video still makes sense on mute.
Keep at it
Consistency is the key to success on social media. That means you have to keep posting on social media on a regular basis. Conveniently, short videos allow users to post more frequently during the day since they last only 15 seconds. To stay on top of your audience’s mind make sure you post short videos once or twice a day. Your audience won’t mind watching your videos every day as long as they are interesting and offer value.
