Real estate blogging success transcript:
I was talking to a couple of folks involved in real estate, a landscaper and a real estate broker. They both blog and they both realize that blogging is good for their business. It attracts natural Google search and it builds trust with the visitors that land on their blog, showing them as experts. The big question is, how do you blog in a time effective manner? I get a lot of whining from people saying, I understand blogging is great, but I just don’t have time to do it. So we came up with a solution, one that would just knock your blogging out of the park and it involves video. Now the first thing you need to do… The big secret here is you need to get a smartphone. Get an iPhone or an Android Phone, but the smartphones today have the ability to record a video. I know that the iPhone makes it extraordinarily easy to upload the video directly from your phone to your YouTube channel. So what you do is you go set up your YouTube channel. Upload your video to YouTube.
Then what you’ll have a video ready to go for your blog. You can embed this video easily right back in a new blog post. So imagine if you are a landscaper and you’re looking at a beautiful project that you just completed, you whip out your Smart Phone. You take a quick video of the nice landscaping that you did. You talk about the process you went through. Maybe a little before and after description and there you have yourself a great video. So once you put your video on your blog you still need to add text.
The secret here is that Google needs text to be able to understand what that blog article’s about so it can rank that article in Google search. So here’s the secret weapon. It’s a website called castingwords.com. Castingwords. What you can do is, you can literally copy the address of your video into Castingwords here. And they will give you a transcription, a written transcription of your video from the audio in your video, that you can copy and paste straight back into your blog.
What do they charge? They charge $0.75 per minute. So let’s say you spent two minutes, which would be a pretty good long description of a property whether it’s for real estate or landscaping or if you’re a plumber or electrician or roofer. Anybody involved in real estate can use this technique.
You’ll spend a grand total of $1.50 to get the text and the video on your blog as a new post. And you’ll have a Google friendly way to transparently show your expertise, very quickly… and yes this transcript was brought to you by castingwords :)
