Check out this nice little infographic we put together to highlight the things our team at eXp Realty can offer real estate professionals.
According to the NAR, 70-80% of home sellers say they would list with an agent that uses video to market their property. Yet, less than 5% of agents are actually using video. 5%!!! It’s still an almost-completely untapped market.
Here are some powerful stats to digest:
- More than 1 billion unique users visit YouTube each month, spending more than 4 billion hours watching videos (YouTube).
- Combining video with full page ads boosts engagement by 22%
- Enjoyment of video ads increases purchase intent by 97%, and brand association by 139%.
- About 46% of people say they’d be more likely to seek out information about a product or service after seeing it in an online video.
- Subscribers opting out were reduced by 75% thanks to video content in email marketing
- Video E-mail messages generate 2-3 X higher click-thru rates compared to static E-mails.
A well-crafted real estate tour video has the potential to garner far more exposure for a given listing, versus a traditional print and photo presentation. With a thorough sharing strategy integrating a YouTube or Vimeo channel, mainstream social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, and e-mail, agents can market both themselves, and their listings to a virtually unlimited audience. Video content will increase website traffic and lead generation. Conversion will also increase simply by virtue of making the agent with video content stand out above the fray. Placing a rider advertising the video along with a for-sale sign can capture passersby who can easily watch the tour from their smartphones, then click through to the agent’s website, or just call them on the spot for an appointment. Prospective buyers are more likely to call an agent they’ve “met” already through a video.
Just a quick, friendly warning: This message is a bit long, but TRUST ME, it could very-well change your life. I mean it. Take the 5 minutes to read it. It will be worth it.
The real estate business is inconsistent and unpredictable, even for the most experienced agents. For most of us, the day we stop selling is the day we stop earning. When the well runs dry, there’s nothing left to drink. I don’t know about you, but I think that’s a scary proposition. That’s why I’m investing in my present and my future with eXp Realty’s amazing revenue share plan.

Here’s how it works. You recruit agents into the company. They sell homes. You get paid. It’s that simple.
For example. Using that same Revenue Share Calculator I shared up above, let’s imagine you recruit some very average agents.
- You recruit agents that sell 6 homes per year.
- The homes they sell are roughly the national average of $200k each.
- Those homes have an average SOC of 3%
Are you with me so far? I’ve simply presented what a very average (if not below average) real estate agent can be expected to produce. Let’s continue… [Read more…] about Easy Breakdown of eXp Realty Revenue Share Plan In Action

I’ve been an agent for over 8 years. I’m not what you’d call a grizzled veteran, but I’ve been around long enough to know that once I stop making those sales calls, the money stops coming in pretty soon thereafter. Sure, there are those few lucky agents who, either through circumstance, hard work or sheer charisma, manage to keep working off of referral and repeat business without much effort, but they are the exception, rather than the rule. And then, of course, they still have to actually do all the work involved in transactions. I think we all know agents who are still out there pounding the pavement well into their 60’s and beyond. And there’s nothing wrong with that…if you are both willing AND able. Personally, I think I’d rather be free to travel, write, visit my friends and family…to do just about anything besides sell homes, assuming I don’t end up sick or injured and incapacitated.
