The four big reasons real estate agents should use video
Videos are – without doubt – the most effective tool a real estate agent can use in their marketing strategy to attract more prospects and increase sales. Videos used to be a luxury-type of content, but today they’re the most important tool for successful real estate agents. Videos have many benefits – here are the four most important ones that should convince any real estate agent to jump on the bandwagon and harness the power of real estate videos:
Do you know that...
Homes listed with video get 400% more inquiries of homes listed without video
E-mails with videos have a 300% higher click-through rate than those without
Hotels that have a significant number of high-quality photos on their websites see a 15% increase in conversion rates
This is compared to hotels that use few and/or low-quality photos. Including good photos of hotel rooms and amenities helps travelers know what they’re getting into and better imagine themselves there.
Now that this is almost a standard practice, hotels that don’t include enough high-quality photos will see that travelers are less likely to book on their sites.

It appeals to all types of customers, gives them a sense of purpose, and can turn advertising into sales.
Video Marketing for Hotels: What’s the Importance?
Video marketing is very important, especially for hotels. Using images, text and sound can enhance a customer’s experience and give them an overall impression of the hotel they are about to visit. It gives them an idea of what the hotel will be like and can help make them decide to stay with you.
Why is social media marketing so important for hotels?
Social media marketing is an important part of any hospitality brand’s strategy. Social media marketing not only increases visibility through paid and organic discovery, but also has the potential to increase direct bookings and improve brand awareness.
With more people interacting with social media than ever before (eight new users join TikTok every second), social media marketing has become an integral part of any hotel’s operations. Social media marketing also offers hotels creative new ways to interact with their audience. Not to mention the fact that it sets you apart from competitors who don’t put as much effort into these channels.
