Answer

Videos can be sent two different ways. Email the link to the website that contains the video or email the video as an attachment. Because videos typically have a large file size it is recommended that you create a hyperlink to the website that contains the video. In order for a website to be able to play a video, it requires video hosting from the web site provider or from another 3rd party that allows you to embed the video into the website.

Website providers will typically host videos or outsource to another 3rd party to be able to post the video for future playback. This requires you to contact the website provider, email or upload the video to their secure server. If you choose to upload your files to a 3rd party they can give you the HTML source embed code that you can copy and paste into your website design editor. 3rd party video hosting companies may charge on a monthly basis plus the cost of bandwidth (the number of times the video is viewed). An example of a 3rd party video host is www.ScreenCast.com.

More real estate professionals, broker, associations and instructors with a limited budget are using YouTube because it is FREE. With YouTube you can create your own association TV channel, upload videos to YouTube and create personalized video players for a category of videos to be displayed within your website for FREE.

    I just went to presentation from a local company here near Tampa, Fl that markets a video email system of their own called Talk Fusion. The starting package to send video emails is about $350 with a $20 monthly fee. I am impressed with the quality but am still trying to access its market value versus the other possible alternatives you mentioned. I am a bit concerned about the price being inflated due to its direct selling approach in making their system well known to the masses. Usually with these types of direct selling companies, their prices are high so that the agents participating as sales independents can reap large commissions…. Any thoughts…?

      Don’t spend the money. Use YouTube instead. The cost exceeds the point of diminishing returns. Yes you can spend money and it will be and look better but will it differentiate you that much or will clients choose another because of the system you bought. They don’t care… they just want to know you use video.
