COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Dec. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Transaction sides. Sales volume. Even social media influence. Real estate professionals are ranked in a variety of ways, but one ranking that's long been missing: video!
Introducing the inaugural Real Estate Video Influencers.
The rankings, created by leading real estate video companies BombBomb and VScreen and presented by Tom Ferry, honor and celebrate people delivering exceptional experiences in their real estate businesses through video.
This first-of-its-kind effort not only recognizes significant video achievements, but also educates by sharing the top strategies of 25 ranked influencers with video advice straight from them, by providing convenient access to examples from all 80 professionals included, and by concluding with top takeaways from Tom Ferry.
"As a video-first coaching company, we've been a huge proponent of agents using video for many years, so I'm extremely proud to be part of the Real Estate Video Influencers guide," says Tom Ferry, CEO of Tom Ferry International. "What I'm especially proud of is the tremendous educational value it delivers. It's so much more than the awards. I consider it the definitive guidebook for how agents are succeeding with video today."
Combined from multiple sources, more than 550 nominations were considered. Thousands of videos were watched to narrow down to 50 ranked finalists and 30 honorable mentions in 5 categories: All Around, Listing Videos, Community Videos, Recorded Videos, and Live Video. Nominees were judged on a combination of consistency, quality, creativity, uniqueness, and educational value - with total videos and total views as secondary criteria.
"Ranking in the top 10 or being honorably mentioned is a tribute to the pioneering spirit and impressive accomplishments of these agents and teams," says Steve Pacinelli, Chief Marketing Officer for BombBomb. "It's a privilege for BombBomb to be able to share their work with the entire industry so we can collectively make video part of the real estate process in the very best ways."
