Does Vlogging Really Have To Be About Business? No Way! That's Boring

By
Real Estate Agent with Tutas Towne Realty, Inc. SL3226489

Does video blogging have to be all about business all the time. I don't think so. Some of the most read and successful bloggers out there are the ones who share not just their business, but their lives in their blogs. People want to know whether you are someone they can relate to. Take this video for instance...

This video tells you a few different things about me. It has absolutely nothing to do with real estate, but it does show the world that I'm a family man first and I'm a real person. And of course I look really cute! At first glance you may not think a video like this adds anything to your blog, but au contraire, that's where you would be wrong. This video absolutely adds a human element to my blog that others can relate to.

It's pretty obvious I'm not some fast talking swindler, I'm just a regular guy who likes spending time with his great kids. If someone can't relate to that, I probably don't want to work with them anyway. So the benefits of this type of post are actually two fold. It shows prospective clients that I'm a regular guy with a family, and it screens out the type of people that I may not get along very well with. That sounds like a win, win situation to me. What do you think?

I have to disagree with you when you say it has absolutely nothing to do with real estate. Real estate is owned by people, and sold by people, and inspected by people, etc., so anything about people has at least a little something to do with real estate!

Alright...

Let's share :)

Nathan (aka Bug) has an identical twin brother. I actually nicknamed them both "Bug". Why? Because they would "Bug" the hell out of me, and still do. I think Nathan is proud of the skill he possesses when it comes to pushing every hot button I have. He's been doing it since he was two. It can be so irritating. See? There's the Bug :)

TLW...ROAR!
