Default Bob, I don't doubt the effectiveness of videos...

They do attract attention and if I were in a business, I'd be using them too.

My "issue", if it is one, and I have no boxer in the ring, no dog in the hunt, no car in the race (OK, I'm done)...

the Biz Op of making these videos

like any money making stuff, may or may not work for one, perhaps because of personality, or experience...

but if there is a motive, such as selling a how to report, then I feel it should be questioned and vetted.

Also, your Realtor, a Christian, didn't act very Christian like, but as noted, lesson learned.

What you did for her, you should be able to replicate for others, and with or without her permission, you could still show what work you did, the videos, and the results...don't even need to mention her get other Realtors if that is what you want to do.

From your writing, you seem to have a ready market for your videos on the metal roofs, maybe it is a "strike while the fire is hot" sort of thing.

Also, it may or may not be a concern, but, I'd be aware of Google, if they even sniff at someone making money off of them, they could shift the sands, but still...

ANYONE into this video marketing, should DO it, most details have been shared, and a few hours of time will give anyone their answer.

and yes, the videos generate leads...the lifeblood of any business..they do not close the sale ...surely you were joking about that ?
one video has had over 130k legitimate views and generated calls to my cell from all over the US. I am in the process of making a video series that I will sell since so many people have called asking questions about the metal roofing.
the real estate videos were tagged and seo-ed using keyword planner so it did arrive on page one for several search terms...not just the address.
There are several companies now who do real estate videos AND ranking who use a similar approach ..dont know what they charge tho.
As far as FSBO folks, I havent tried it ...yet. May do one today and optimize it for a high price home and see how it ranks. You do know you can use adwords in youtube?
Gordon...I was caught with my pants down on monitoring her sales..think I was 'in love' at the time .. ...she did email me at the start, telling me she had to hire another agent and for me to slow down til she could catch up with the business...which is a pretty good testimonial in itself , I guess. and even then, I didnt require any results. I know , deep in my heart, that you are teasing about me selling the homes since I was not licensed. There is no method that I know to sell houses without personal involvement of the agent or owner.
Funny how when one revisits a past emotional experience, all the feelings come back. She projected herself to me and the community as a devoted Christian , Church of God, and I fell for that instead of being more demanding. Now, we will get comments on religion..heheh
