Are you a real estate agent looking to level up your game on YouTube? If so, you’re in the right place! In this episode of the Agent Rise podcast, co-hosts Neil Mathweg and Mindy Kessenich discuss how real estate agents can take their YouTube presence to the next level. From finding your niche to optimizing your studio setup, they cover essential strategies to help you succeed in the world of real estate YouTube marketing.
Finding Your Niche and Content Buckets: Beyond starting with the “Living In” and “Moving To” keywords, one of the next steps in mastering YouTube for real estate is finding your niche. What are you passionate about in your hometown or city? Do you love outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking, or biking? Are you a food enthusiast who enjoys exploring local restaurants? Identifying your interests will help you create content buckets around them. Content buckets are specific topics or themes that you consistently cover in your videos. These buckets should align with your interests and what potential homebuyers or relocators are searching for.
Engaging Your Audience: Building a loyal audience on YouTube requires more than just posting videos. It’s about engaging your viewers and providing valuable content. Mindy emphasizes the importance of talking about things that resonate with your audience. When your content matches your audience’s interests, you’ll attract like-minded viewers who share your passion. Remember that finding your ideal avatar, someone who aligns with your interests, can help you tailor your content to your target audience effectively.
Optimizing Your Studio Setup: Creating a professional studio setup is crucial for producing high-quality videos. Neil shares his journey of setting up his studio, emphasizing the importance of sound quality and lighting. A dark, windowless room can be an advantage, as it provides consistent lighting conditions. Invest in good lighting equipment to make your videos look polished and professional. Don’t forget about soundproofing and eliminating background noise, which can significantly impact the quality of your videos.
Editing and Post-Production: The discussion also covers the role of editing in video production. Neil introduces Descript, a powerful tool for recording and editing within the same app. Descript offers transcriptions and AI-driven editing features that help you remove filler words like “ums” and “ahs” to make your videos more polished. It’s an excellent option for DIY content creators who want to streamline their editing process.
