Creating video content for social media is vital for success, but agents are apprehensive because they don’t know what content is impactful. How can we gain a following online, and when we do, what content should we be consistently creating? Do we need to spend hours tackling the biggest issues in real estate, or is simplicity key?
On this episode, CEO of Shelton Wilder Group at Compass, Shelton Wilder shares how to excel with video content.
Takeaways + Tactics
Consistency is key. If we want to gain a following on social media, we have to stay top of mind by constantly sharing quality content.
Differentiation makes all the difference. By sharing meaningful content where no one else in our market currently is, we’re already setting ourselves apart from our competitors.
Don’t overthink content. So often we hold ourselves back because we second guess what to share with our audience. Creating for social media doesn’t need to cause anxiety - in fact, simple topics are key.
On this episode, we discussed why branding is so important. We also explained how agents can get started with their own content by looking at what their peers in other markets are sharing, and suggested topics agents may consider talking about in their videos. We also learned:
Why staying top of mind is vital
The value of authenticity

Online videos are absolutely vital for agents looking to get ahead and stay relevant in this crowded real estate market. We need to commit to creating content on a regular basis in order to stand out. If we clearly focus on creating quality content with simple talking points, we will showcase our expertise and drive traffic to our business lines.
