If you are a real estate agent or broker you understand the power is in the listing. He or she who owns the listing lasts in this business.
With all new technology there are positives and negatives.
Technology helps us do more tasks however, sometimes we are either encouraged to use short cuts and sometimes we are just plain lazy and look for ways to get done faster and with less effort.
This happens with syndicating your listings on the internet.
What started out as a really time saving idea of having our listing syndicated to all the different portals on the internet but ended up losing sight of owning our listings online.
In this Free Workshop you will discover:

SEO is back with a vengeance! We are seeing some amazing results on page one and page 2 with brand new websites and blog content.
Then I went back to older sites to see how they are doing and they also are showing up on page one.
Google made what most would think is an insignificant change not in their algorithm ( although Google is always updating their algorithm) but rather in the application of serving up the algorithm.
This little seemingly insignificant shift appears to be favoring those of us who are not huge brand names.
Before Google invented their zoo of animals, panda, penguin, pigeon- most of us were rocking it with our SEO. Then with the zoo animals being set loose to wreak their havoc a lot of people lost their income, their leads and their positions almost overnight. The winners through the zoo rotation were the big name brands.
The little guy, small business owners, real estate agents, dentists and marketers took a huge hit because even the past head huncho over at Google said they needed to clean up the ‘cesspool' on the internet and favor the big brands.
Over time the shift tended back again toward quality content and long form content. Then a very interesting shift happened that many people would not notice.
When I started the building the latest 3 websites for clients- we noticed there was a shift back to good content and keywords, so much so, that well, you will need to get on this Free webinar where I will show you what I am talking about and also tell you what we believe may be the reason we are getting these sudden boosts of page one rankings!
I ran a few tests on some brand new niche websites I am building for our real estate company and it held true again.
If you are in real estate- how would you like to rank ahead of Zillow?
If you are a dentist, how would you like to rank ahead of the big directories?
While Google favors big brands, I will show you what we see is happening where the small time brands are able to position themselves out in front!!!
I can’t wait to share what we are finding with you!!!

Video is where it is at! If you are not creating videos by now, the ship has left the port but there is good news! There is still time to get on board! There are many video platforms however, I strongly suggest to use YouTube as your ma in platform. You can read more about why video is so important to your business here.
How to videos are the most popular kind of videos any business owner, real estate agent, mortgage broker, e-commerce, marketer can create. How to videos are the most popular of all videos to watch on YouTube. If you are too shy to be on camera- have no fear- you can screencast or talk while shooting video of what you are talking about. You can also do slideshows and narrate the content. The possibilities are numerous. Just take your first step!
YouTube Video Editor: Ranking high on my list of favorite video apps is the YouTube editor. The best thing about the YouTube editor is, it is free. Unlike many freebies, where you get what you pay for… YouTube editor is worth a lot more than free.
If you don't want to take the time to learn how to use complicated movie editing software on your computer ( that is, if you don't have a mac:)) then use the YouTube Video Editor.
You can add music that is approved by YouTube for your video as long as you are not monetizing your videos. (You can't have ads running on your videos when using the music by CC license from YouTube.) This saves you money and time from running around trying to find tunes you have permission to use.
Adding annotations and captions is easy. Now, you can link your YouTube videos together which is an amazing SEO technique you should be using. I teach how to do YouTube SEO in Fast Track SEO and in Listing Experts Academy. Find your training modules on your Facebook group files tab.
A new addition to YouTube videos is ‘cards'. Learn how to use the ‘cards' with easy tutorials free from YouTube. I will be creating more how to videos on all the new features inside of YouTube Editor. I am working on some YouTube editing video tutorials. Make sure you subscribe to my blog to get notified they are ready.
Here is a video we created for a new home subdivision of 70 homes that we listed in Port St Lucie Florida- our avatar is a baby boomer couple between 50 to 60 years old. When you watch the video you will be able to tell this is the market we are focused on. Always speak to your avatar:
Share the top Video Editing Tools – most of them are free! Click to Tweet
iMovie App: If you want to edit your videos on your mac, on your iPad or on your iPhone iMovie is very easy to learn and easy to use.
Drag and drop your movie, audio and image files right from your desktop. On your iPad or iPhone just use your fingers to manipulate your video edits, cuts, and additions.
If you don't feel like spending over $600 or a monthly fee for products like Adobe- iMovie is only $14.99 – a one time fee- and comes with most macs.
I love how easy and inexpensive it is to use the Apple App store – you can add your apps to all of your devices and computers at home and work without long license verification process and additional purchases saving time and money.
Instagram Built In Video Tool: FREE– If you are creating videos on Instagram look no further than the app right inside of Instagram.
It is free and easy to use. It is similar to the Instagram photo editor so if you are used to using the photo editor it won't be hard to get the hang of the video tool.
Here is a tutorial on using video editing tools in Instagram I found on YouTube. It is short and to the point. https://youtu.be/-aUUyx-xa98
Hyperlapse: FREE -I wrote this article about Hyperlapse. I love hyperlapse and have fun watching many videos done with this app.
Videos speak volume compared to blogging so I will show you how awesome Hyperlapse is instead of talking about it. This is one of the most beautiful hyperlapse videos created- The World is Beautiful by Seiswell:
We took a road trip from Fargo North Dakota to Mt Rushmore over to Cody, Wyoming then on to Yellowstone Park , down into Jackson Hole Wyoming and then ended in Salt Lake City, Utah. The ride was amazing and we took a lot of hyperlapse video along the way.
StopMotion Studio: If you would like to add some animation to your videos this app for your iPhone and iPad might just become your favorite movie editing app.
Stop Motion Studio's whole range of unique features will help you create terrific stop action movies. Frame-by-frame editor, the timeline, the sound editor, green screen; where you can change the background of your scene like those in the studio production sets of movies and TV commercials.
It's user friendly, no complicated in-app tools, and it's so fun to use and share!
FlipaGram: This app can be downloaded free in the app store for your iPhone and can also be used on Android phones from Google Play and also from Amazon apps.
You can take your photos and create video slideshows, add music, use stop motion, Have I mentioned they have millions of music clips you can use? Oh yes, that is right, millions of music clips to add to your videos. Your Flipagrams can be featured in the social section of the app, share your Flipagrams right from your phones!
The Music Video Camera is a new feature that will enhance your storytelling experience. You can create music videos and lip sync to, again millions of clips! Simply choose a song from the library, or your own, and begin shooting your video with the live camera!
This is a versatile music/slideshow/stop motion app. Give it a try and watch your creative alter-ego at play.
Videohance: $2.99 App- This is an app for iOS devices. This app offers hundreds of HD special effects.
You can adjust the “look” real time you are in control you can manage the settings, texture, light while you are shooting. Adjust authentic textures if you want that cool vintage vibe.
Cinemagram: $4.99 for iPhones and iPads. With this app you can add special effects to your videos! You can add effects like sparklers to your videos. You need to check this one out especially if you like to add animation style effects. While this is not animated, it is to me, easier to use because you just click on the effect you want.
Press-and-release video recording, on-the-fly linear sequencing and audio recording. It lets you play clips (Cinemagram term “cines”) in reverse, import images and videos taken from outside the app, use Instagram-like filters and exposure-enhancements to your vidoes, create manually edited loops, increase or decrease the video speed and release your projects as animated GIFs.
Creative animators or film makers make use of this app and the results are genius!
8mm Vintage: app is $1.99 for iOS devices is really fun. You can create vintage videos very quickly. Let your imagination soar with this app. Just imagine using this app for historic homes in downtown areas!
Here is a music video was created with the 8mm Vintage app. Lana Del Ray's song has already had 231,672,810 views! Summertime Sadness, The film is offered in “10 grainy, discolored, dusted and aged films from different eras – 1920, Noir, 60s, 70s, Sakura, XPro, Siena, Pela, Indigo and Tuscan.”
The app includes a jitter button to make your retro film really look like film! This is a very clever feature. The app has some awesome filters too!
Here is another video shot with the 8mm Vintage app:
8mm Vintage video app is really fun. Try creating some retro film with this app. Let me know how it turns out: Click to Tweet
Pick Play Post: FREE- for iOS devices. This app has the cool ability to time and watermark your videos. You can combine your videos, photos, GIFS and music to create videos with this app.
This is a very versatile collage video framer app allowing multiple cropped videos to be uploaded within the same frame. They can also be framed together with photos so that some slots in the grid show photos while others show videos. The degree of customization is so great that it even allows for multiple videos to be played simultaneously, or in a sequential order.
If you are wondering what app to use to make framed videos, or when you are the more versatile fresh type of film-maker try this app. You get to choose from wide range of frame options!
400 hours of video is uploaded to YouTube every single minute. Don't let that deter you from capturing your own audience on YouTube. Remember there is plenty of opportunity for you to gain a following and drive traffic to your websites by posting videos on YouTube.
I have written articles about YouTube stats so here is the short list:
Just for Fun!
Psy’s 2012 hit ‘Gangnam Style' has over 2.4 billion views and it also became the first to reach that 2 billion mark.
This video almost broke YouTube. Engineers for the site had to update the maximum view limit from 2,147,483,647 to 9,223,372,036,854,775,808, or more than nine quintillion.

Real Estate Best Practices SEO
There are many different opinions on the SEO streets about how to apply your SEO to your real estate websites and blogs.
There are some SEO steps that are universal which all agree are important:
a) Use your keywords in your title tag
b) Write a compelling description tag ( this is what people will compel people to click on)
c) Add at least one image to your post or page
d) Add alt 1 and alt 2 tags to your images
What most SEO experts don't tell you is that you not only need to write great content but you must know who you are speaking to.
You must know your avatar.
You must do the work to get down to the very deep essence and nature of your avatar ( your ideal client).
Check it out- connecting to your avatar works:
From Corinne Guest:
“Oh the deep psychology of it all. My Avatar just called! Another downsizing buyer and seller from a niche web site. It's amazing how this works.”
and then she said this:
“Loving the phone calls. So much better than any other form of connection, it's when I can be me.”
and she also said this about her Listing Experts Academy membership:
“Wow, talk about break through. I just spent 3 hours doing the Avatar homework. Ok so I had some input from hubby but it was amazing to learn I am working with the wrong buyers 90% of the time. One of my avatars was for buyers, and when one called this morning, after a brief conversation, I fired her. She is now someone else's nightmare. The other 4 are for sellers and is going to make the next part so easy to follow through on.
Why did I not sign up for this program earlier…….??? I see more happiness in my future.”
Remember that when you sign up for Listing Experts Academy, Fast Track SEO with live training webinars are included in your Lifetime Membership.
