Tips to Know Before Making Your First Real Estate Instagram Reels
Now, the first thing to realize is you must repurpose your Reels for other platforms like Pinterest, Facebook, and TikTok. It’s OK to share on other platforms. Just make sure that you do not download the real with the other platform’s local on it and then share it on a different platform. That’s a no-no. Below are additional things you need to know.
Short Reels are better.
Then, stick with videos that are 15, 30, and 60 seconds in length. This will allow for more micro topics you can share and hashtag easily.
Be as educating and entertaining as possible. The smallest details are important for people looking to buy or sell a home. So be specific and entertaining.
Enthusiasm sells! When doing an Instagram Reels video, be sure you are as enthusiastic as possible. Smile and share your love of what you are talking about.
Use trending music without lyrics
Use trending songs. This one is tricky; pick trending songs that are not offensive to your audience or potential clients. Pick music without lyrics but may be able to sync with your images.
Use relevant hashtags. Pick some local popular hashtags in your area to bring attention to the homes you are selling.
Use Hooks at the Beginning of Reels
Add a hook at the beginning of your business! If you do not want to do too much talking, you can add a hook statement at the beginning of your video like:
- State a fascinating fact that relates to the video topic.
- Say What if … and finish the sentence related to your video topic.
- Try to surprise the viewers. Be cautious not to startle them. They may leave immediately.
- State a problem at the beginning and show how to solve it.
- Ask a question related to the topic and answer the question during the rest of the video.
- Give a hint as to what you are about to talk about.
Remember to include text overlay on your video. Include text on your video so people can watch without sound.
Video yourself. Share your thoughts by talking to the camera. It doesn’t have to be long, just be honest about yourself, your business, and your life. People appreciate transparency.
