Selling A home with promo video
You must connect with the audience
Buying a home is one of the most emotionally driven purchases you can make.
No matter what stage of life you're in, a home needs to be where you feel like you belong.
We need to take this commitment into account, especially when selling a new development where a community has yet to be fully established.
Video can do this.
A house cannot be called a home
without an association of emotion.
A promotional video is between 30 - 60 seconds long and is designed to be shown off to a wider audience that are not aware of your product.
The aim here is to tease the viewer into wanting to learn more about the product as well as build brand awareness, which in turn helps the "share-ability" of the video.
The promotional video needs to tease. The feeling of your product needs to be captured. Many marketers feel they need to show the product in order to sell it, this is not the case when it comes to a promotional video. You want to leave the audience slightly in the dark, urging them to want to find out more.
This is where a promotional video works well with other forms of media. After the viewer clicks through to the site they are greeted with photos, written information and maybe some more informative corporate videos to carry the consumer further along the buying process.
It's about building brand awareness and getting peoples foot in your door.
Traditional corporate videos, 60 seconds up to a couple of minutes, are great when aimed at someone who is already invested in the product and wants to learn more about it. They'll be more inclined to give you their precious time.
This is why corporate videos are not so good when trying to promote a product to new consumers. A new consumer thinks that they're boring, repetitive and they've seen it all before. This is why we need to hit them with a teaser first, as the teaser gets the attention of those you're targeting and encourages people to invest their time in a corporate video.
Combining shots form the promo with the corporate video is a great way to extend that emotional connection with the viewer.
Typically we'd host a talking head video on the website to help push the consumer further along the buying process. However, you may wish to create a talking head aimed at investors, platforms liked LinkedIn then become a strong place to distribute on.
