We did a quick exercise, we looked for
office space for rent through videos. Guess what we found?
From the nearly 1500 Business
Centers we have listed at OfficeList less than 10% are using
Youtube or Vimeo to show their spaces! Maybe the percentage is
higher, but others didn't come up in our searches.
Using videos as support material to
show your executive suites to potential clients is easy and
can work as a sales tool, as extra material for online brokers and to
extend your online presence.
You can easily create an account in
vimeo or youtube (the most popular but there's more sites) and upload
your own video or make one from pictures, add music & special
effects, add captions and a title, this is a free option and can be
uploaded in minutes. Windows Movie Maker is another easy-to-use tool
to create the video although you will then need to upload through
the websites we just mentioned.
You can also look online for “web
video production” and you'll find several companies offering this
services, which isn't free but will definitely project a more
professional image. Some offer high definition, a spokesperson and
they can start from as low as $50.
If you're opening a new location you
can also create a video with the renderings and show visitors how the
space will look like.
Most important, add some useful tags or
some keywords that will help people find your video online.
You may have an amazing video, but if
people can't find you, it's useless.
Try using common words: products or
services you provide like “office space
” additional to
branded words. Keep in mind that people looking for space for rent
don't know your company yet, so branded words (like OfficeList
in our case) won't be as powerful. Add geographical references like
the country, the city, the state or the county. “Furnished office space in Los Angeles
” will reach a more targeted
audience than a general tag.
The next step would be to make it
public. Share it with everybody, send an email, share it on facebook
, write about it in your blog and list it in your site.
We have a large portfolio of amazing
office rentals, helps us show your space and send us any videos from
your Business Suites, we'll be glad to share them.
