However, Brokers and Agents utilizing professionally produced 30 to 60-second Video Bio-Elevator Pitch type videos have seen a dramatic increase in obtaining new clients. Research has revealed that Video Bio’s-Elevator Pitch videos will increase a Broker-Agent ability to obtain new clients by a whopping 73%.
According to the 2021 Real Estate Marketing Trends Report, video marketing is the top-ranking marketing tool every Broker-Agent must have in their toolkit because 80% of decision-makers would rather watch a video than read text. Buyers, Sellers, Tenants, and Landlords all want to see you and hear you before they engage. Video builds that important trust, rapport, and most important, video humanizes you and is vital, especially if you are dealing with potential clients that are out of town.
