At the recent REALTORS® Conference Expo in San Francisco, Marki Lemons Ryhal of ReMarkiTable LLC shared her top ten tips for shooting better marketing videos.
To underline consumer preferences for video, Facebook predicts that the majority of its messaging in five years will be video so it makes sense that Ryhal has spent hours perfecting her video skills. Ryhal said, “People (now) know me for creating content that resonates with them plus my face and voice have become familiar to them.”
Whether you’re making one-minute videos for your clients about a buying/selling tip or interviewing leaders in your community, make your videos as engaging as possible by incorporating some of Ryhal’s tips into your video marketing.
