Social media content marketing is constantly evolving, and it's important to keep up with the trends to stay ahead of the competition. One trend that has been gaining traction in recent years is vertical video content. If you're a real estate professional who hasn't yet embraced this trend, it's time to start creating educational vertical videos with captions. This type of content can help you get more leads, build your brand, expand your audience, and close more deals. In this blog post, we'll break down the steps to shoot vertical video, batch your content, come up with content ideas, and add captions to your final videos.
Why Vertical Video?
Vertical video is becoming increasingly popular on social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok. In fact, according to a recent study by Animoto, 75% of millennials and Gen Z consumers watch vertical videos regularly, and 60% prefer them over horizontal videos. So, why the preference for vertical videos? It all comes down to user behavior. Most people hold their phones vertically when using social media, making it more natural to consume vertical videos. Additionally, vertical videos take up more screen real estate, making them more eye-catching and engaging.
Step-by-Step Guide to Shooting Vertical Video
Start by turning your phone vertically. This may seem obvious, but it's important to make sure you're shooting in the right orientation.
Consider using a tripod or stabilizer to keep your phone steady and prevent shaky footage.
Be mindful of your lighting. Natural light is always a good option, but if you're shooting indoors, make sure you have enough light to avoid grainy footage.
Use your phone's camera app to set your focus and exposure. You can tap on the screen to set the focus and slide your finger up or down to adjust the exposure.
Record your video! Keep in mind that vertical videos should be shorter and more concise than horizontal videos.
Batching Your Content
Now that you know how to shoot vertical video, it's time to start creating content. One of the most efficient ways to do this is by batching your content. Batching involves setting aside a dedicated block of time to create multiple pieces of content at once. This can help you save time and stay organized. Here are a few tips for batching your vertical video content:
Set aside a specific day or time each week for content creation.
Brainstorm a list of content ideas beforehand so you know exactly what you'll be creating.
Create a shot list for each video so you can efficiently capture all the footage you need.
Record multiple videos in one sitting to make the most of your time.
Coming Up With Content Ideas
When it comes to creating vertical video content for real estate, there are endless possibilities. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Showcase a property: Take viewers on a virtual tour of a property you're selling. This can help them get a feel for the space and make a decision about whether or not they're interested in scheduling a showing.
Share market updates: Keep your audience informed about the latest real estate trends and news in your area.
Offer tips and advice: Share your expertise by offering tips on home buying, selling, or staging.
Introduce yourself: Use vertical video to introduce yourself to potential clients and give them a glimpse into your personality and style.
Adding Captions to Your Videos
Finally, it's important to add captions to your vertical videos. Many viewers watch videos with the sound off, so captions can help ensure your message is still getting across. You can add captions using a variety of tools, including Instagram's built-in captioning feature, third-party apps like Kap.
