FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., May 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - RealBiz Media Group, Inc. (RBIZ) is pleased to announce the release of its new website http://www.realbizmedia.com highlighting the company's agent platforms along with a leading real estate industry white paper. The recently released white paper by the Marilyn Wilson of the WAV Group entitled "Video Marketing -- The Secret to Effective Lead Generation" highlights the ability of video to drive consumer engagement. It also suggests some of the criteria to look for when choosing a video partner and highlights RealBiz Media's successful video marketing tools being used by Century 21 Hometown Realty.
Some of the highlights include:
-Only 24% of national brands are using online video to market to consumers, yet 76% of marketers plan to add video to their sites making it a higher priority than Facebook, Twitter and Blog integration.
-According to the National Association of Realtors, 1 in 4 listing includes a virtual tour or video today, yet real estate is one of the most visually appealing business that could most benefit from video usage.
-Century 21's Hometown Realty chose RealBiz Media's application for one simple reason: "Their agents don't have to do anything. The system they chose creates high quality video for every property they have for sale. This automated property market shores up the company's commitment to every seller, every time and removes agent and staff labor."
Marilyn Wilson, author of the paper says, "Video is, by far, the best way to promote properties today. Potential home buyers have an insatiable appetite for video stories and views of properties they are interested in. Companies that have figured out ways to make it easy for real estate agents to offer videos of properties, communities and market trends are positioned for short and long-term success."
