The easiest way to get involved with YouTube is to try it...
It's not much different than downloading pictures from your camera onto your computer. Just try it - set aside one or two hours (it will probably take a fraction of that time), film something and post it up.
Here's a Guide to Milton House Prices we filmed on a Friday afternoon.
Total time: about 5 hours of planning, driving, filming and editing.
First step is to write down 5-10 different types of homes - detached, condo, semis, townhomes, luxury homes... then you want to sub-categorize to small detached, medium detached.
Go film 2-3 of each sub-category... you'll have maybe 40-50 clips.
Go into Windows Movie Maker, or iMovie (standard with most PC's and Mac's respectively). Import the clips and arrange them in order from least expensive to most expensive.
Attach titles, music and you're done! Publish a movie and then send it to YouTube for the world to see.
That may seem like a lot of time... but it's done and we don't need to touch it ever again. It's there forever. So far we're nearing 2,000 hits with no advertising or anything besides people searching YouTube for information about our town.
Here's another video house tour we did... with practice, you get better every time.
One more... meet David and Eva. They're from Amsterdam. David essentially emailed us and said, "we love your use of technology - you ARE helping us buy a home when we visit." We got delayed in Mexico coming back to town, and they waited an extra three days for us to show up! That was amazing.
So here's a video we shot when we narrowed down to two homes. Eva was still working in Amsterdam, so we sent her two finalists and she chose the best home based on the video. We put an offer in and they moved in at the end of August.
