How to get started on Youtube….NOW!!

When I started using video a few years ago, I learned a lot by just experimenting and watching videos produced by other agents. There were very few instructional videos on “how to shoot a listing video.” I found a few to help me with editing video,  but none to help me shoot better video. Well……that’s all changed now. There are tons of HOW TO videos on YouTube. If you want to get started now……then you have no excuse. The information is out there.  how to

This is so cool!!! If you go to YouTube and enter the phrase, “how to shoot a real estate video” you get results. Amazing!!! I paid a few hundred dollars for instructional videos 4-5 years ago. Now you can find the same tips online for free. YouTube also has a “creator academy” with easy to follow step by step instructions.

 

Make it really easy for your audience to find your real estate videos by uploading them to your YouTube Channel. Google also has a great support page for all of their services. Google Support.

Why should you create a YouTube Channel?

  • Homepage for your videos
  • Brand recognition
  • Subscribe to other channels
  • Create a playlist of helpful videos from other creators
  • So your videos can be easily found

If you want to stay ahead of the competition, you need to get started with video today. Have some fun and try to be fascinated instead of frustrated.

What tasks should you Automate or Delegate?

Is there a difference between Automation and Delegation? What are your opportunities to automate or delegate Low Performance/Priority Tasks?

We now view driving a car as a low performance task. Why? Because we would all rather be doing something else. Texting is more important than driving, but driving is necessary. We’ve placed a higher value on tasks that we could be checking off our list instead of driving. However, the need to travel from point A to B hasn’t changed. Self driving cars will allow us to delegate a low performance but necessary task.

Relationships can’t be automated. You have to search for ways to free up your time so that it can be reinvested in your relationships.

You are the only one who can complete the High Performance/Priority tasks and do the heavy lifting.

The New Way of Working

The new way of working requires us to go back to the Basic Fundamentals:

  • Networking
  • Using a CRM (not a rolodex)
  • Partnering with the best technology/equipment
  • Office environment creates an experience

The Benefits of mastering the Basic Fundamentals:

  • More face/face time with clients
  • Become more profitable
  • Access/Execute documents from any device
  • Positive experiences are the key that unlocks the doors of opportunity

What’s in Your Real Estate Playbook?

Legendary coach Roy Munson returned to Waddell Realty to share some strategies from his playbook. The best way to kick off the week is with a WIN on Saturday. But you can’t count on luck every Saturday, you’ve got to have a solid playbook and practice, practice, practice.

The week before a closing can feel like 4th and Goal. Are you going to kick a Field Goal or go for the Touch Down? What’s in your playbook?

Roy Munson Strategies

REACT WITH INTENT: Your reaction should be intentional. This can only happen if you practice the plays in your playbook. Great Players develop instincts by practicing how to react to different situations.

PREPARED RESPONSE: “Here is a game you can play. It’s called look like you know what you are doing and just win the game.” Think it through by preparing several ways to respond to situations during the game.

IFTTT: If This Then That. Layout a step by step plan for what happens next. If this happens, then you do that. We call this “looking like a genius.”

EMERGENCY PLAN: You are in a tight situation and need to act fast. What do you do? Everyone needs an emergency plan when you don’t have enough time to think.

Don’t wait for things to happen to YOU, go out and make them happen for YOU.

How Much is Enough? Is The Best You Can Do, All You Can Do?

NO! What if we fell on the floor and did as many sit-ups as we could. Maybe all you can do is 5 before you say, “That’s the best I can do.” You facial expression will probably tell us that you are tired. But if you rest you can do a little more. REST, do a little more, REST, do a little more, REST, do a little more and you will eventually reach 50 sit-ups. 

How Do You Get Started? 

  • Do What You Can
  • Do The Best You Can
  • Rest Very Little

I love asking and getting asked tough questions. One of my favorite Jim Rohn questions is: 

How long do you want it to take to get really good at what you do?

The answer is NOT LONG. We should all be expected to double our value in a reasonable amount of time by making progress. Most people make REST an objective when it should be a necessity. The objective of life is to act. Take action now by doing what you can, the best that you can, and rest very little along the way.
