Fred,
Thank you for so generously sharing your insight into this niche market for video. If you wouldn't mind, I have a followup question... So you've shot the video, edited it together and are ready to deliver it to the realitor... What is your usual delivery method? DVD, computer file optimized for streaming, something else?

Thanks for any help you can share...

Kevin

Delivering to realtor

I host 3 versions of the video: QuickTime, Windows Media Video and Flash. They are hosted on my server. I also create two versions of the video - a branded version with contact info, etc. and a non branded version for the MLS.

I email (via http://www.YouSendIt.com) all of the video files to the agent for burning onto CD if they wish.

I can create custom labeled DVD's for playback on a DVD player/ TV for an extra charge.

I upload the branded version to Realtor.com if they have the enhanced listing package.

In certain states, I also upload the link to the local MLS. In some states, I give them the link as they have to enter that information themselves.

I also upload the videos to about 12 sites, such as YouTube, Google Video, Brightcove, MetaCafe, etc.
