Backpage.com is the leading competitor to Craigslist. Check out what advice they gave their advertisers:
“It’s really easy to use your smart phone to upload your video directly to your posting. Don’t worry about it not being perfect. Users like content to be more real anyway.”
The world is ready for reality videos.
We don’t have to be perfect, we just have to give the viewer a reason to watch – like a simple walk through tour of a home they’re interested in renting.
What can you do with video tours?
- Upload them to the listing page on sites like Backpage.com and Appfolio.com
- Embed them on your website
- Share them on Facebook
- Email potential renters links so they can watch from the comfort of home. This prequalifying step saves you and the potential tenants from wasting time driving to a property that they aren’t interested in.
- Show your point of difference from other property management companies on your website by showing off a few example video tours.
