Once you have created the channel, advertise it and ensure you deliver your message

You can get people to subscribe to your YouTube channel by paying for advertisements from developed youTubers with the same content and advertising yourself on other social media platforms and your website.  Do not start the channel without a marketing plan. You need to know what content you can deliver to your followers. Getting the right equipment is the first step of providing quality content to your viewers. Ensure you have a high quality camera to deliver good quality videos to your viewers.

Take some videos and picture of the property you are selling or buying to appeal to the wholesale and retail buyers that may be watching your YouTube videos. Make your work professional; ensure you show the inside, outside and neighbourhood of the property you are selling. Some features like the local amenities and infrastructure should provide a larger view of the area.

Always ensure you are taking the videos on a good sunny day and turn the lights on, open the curtains and stage the home when you are taking the video of the inside of the home for your channel. Do not speak too much in the background as that may be annoying for most viewers. Remember to put your contacts, company and name at the end of every video and watermark your video in case people want to download it and share. You can put links to your website where viewers will visit for additional information.

When you are uploading content on YouTube, ensure you use a good and catchy video description. Add as many links and contents to the description that are relevant to the video as possible. Annonations will allow you to directly speak to the viewers as the video is playing. If you are selling things from the property on other sites, ensure you include them in the description box.
