  General Contractor Uses Videos To Get Apartment Complex Jobs   I kind of stumbled into this technique about two years ago, but the results have been worthy of mentioning here. While it is something that has worked for me as a contractor, maybe you can come up with something that better fits into your profession.   I had finally made the decision to start video recording in an attempt to get familiar with recording, editing, and posting for the sake of marketing. I knew that the growth of video marketing was quickly approaching and wanted to be a part of it. I needed to face that fear by just getting started. So I did.   My first attempt in putting together a marketing video was an experiment. I didn’t want to do one on my business, it seemed easier and less fearful to practice on some...

  I had a recent conversation with a Sheriff's office friend of mine. We were discussing traffic violations in the county, and the type of violations that recur. He had mentioned one intersection in particular and probably the most common traffic ticket in Cameron Park. I've committed the violation, but didn't get caught. If you are near that intersection and are able to watch for a few light changes, you will see the violation happen over and over again. This is a hyper local post, a specific intersection in a small community, but I'm certain you have something similar somewhere near you. The intersection that is being shown is the Cameron Park Drive exit off of Highway 50, in Cameron Park, California. Here is a Google view. If we zoom in a little, we can get a better look at the situa...

  Fireworks Spectacular in Cameron Park a Success.   Did you get a chance to see a fireworks display yet? There was quite a show in Cameron Park, at the lake, last night. A large crowd came to the park earlier in the day to play games, listen to music, and compete in competitions. Most stayed for the main event - the fireworks display at the Summer Spectacular. The fireworks display was produced by Pyro Spectaculars, the largest producer on the West Coast. If you weren't there, here is a short clip of the fireworks display over Cameron Park Lake.        (Video shot with the iPhone outside the park.)

  I'm not here to tell you that I have an intense workout regimen, and why you should too. I am a member of Overcome Training, signed the family up recently at a great price. I have only been there a handful of times so far but the place is just right for me. I have been working a bunch of hours lately, physical work as a contractor does not replace the need for a regular exercise program. Overcome Training offers the traditional workout equipment: free weights, fancy isolation equipment, treadmill, elliptical, and such. They also have boxing (even a boxing ring), martial arts, MMA, yoga, spinning and special classes for more intense workouts. Now it's just a matter of getting in on a regular basis. The time will come. Overcome Training is located in Cameron Park, Ca. If you live in the...

  Let's say that you have made a video that you are pleased with, a real Oscar winning production.The video describes your clients property, the lighting is good, the sound quality is right on the money, and you've saved and uploaded to YouTube. You don't want to change the video, but a new introduction could lead to more views, and maybe some good leads. How about making a short teaser video, with a link to your main video embedded in it. Sound interesting? Let's see how that can be done.         For the sake of example, Let's say that you have a video of an apartment community as your main video. In this post I will be using a video that I shot about a year ago. The video had a bunch of quality views (currently approaching 2000 views!) but we wanted to market in some different ways.  ...

This is a looking video that was recorded while working at Cameron Ridge Apartments in Cameron Park. I edited the video and posted to YouTube to help market the community. I occasionally post to Craigslist just to get some feedback from the public. It didn't take too long to put the whole thing together, I would highly suggest you give it a try. Let me know what you think. Cameron Ridge Apartment, FPI Management

Cameron Park Short Sale - Short Sales are on the rise in Cameron Park and account for a substantial amount of available homes on the market today. There are 53 Short Sales that are unsold out of 142 total homes for sale in Cameron Park. I expect these numbers to soar in 2011.  Unfortunately, only 5 Cameron Park short sale homes sell every month, on average. That's less than 10% of the available Cameron Park CA short sale listings! In addition, 23 Short Sales in Cameron Park CA have expired or have been withdrawn in the last 6 months alone, many due to foreclosure. It is very important to choose an experienced Short Sale Agent for your Short Sale in Cameron Park. Can the agent provide rent short sale approval letters? Are they negotiating the deals themselves or are they farming out to ...

Keywords are important and this video will show why. This is a short video of a job that I needed to send to the owner upon completion. I posted to YouTube to show the client, I expected a handful of views since it was not posted anywhere. Because I used some words that were being searched in YouTube, this video would appear as a suggested video. Before I knew it the views were in the hundreds! I added some annotations to "ride this pony" and have gotten some extra mileage from it. The lesson learned? When making a video, posting a picture, or any other internet posting, pay attention to the words you use. You have anyvideo tales to tell?

One of the perks agents get who work at Lyon Real Estate is our office assistants input our listings to MLS. These hard-working people make sure we comply with all the new rules and regulations of MLS, so we don't violate anything and get fined. If I need to make changes to the marketing comments, for example, I need only to email my staff and they update the listing. But I'm one of those meticulous agents who pays attention to detail, which probably drives the staff nuts. If I see a hyphen missing or a typo, I email them to request a change. That's because nobody knows that I don't input that information myself, and I'd hate for a person to think I misspelled a word. They can think other nasty things about me if they like but not that I can't spell. Hey, we all have our quirks. There i...

Yeah, I know-I blog alot on "Green Subjects" and on conservation-in general...I just feel these things can't be ignored.  There are some Actions you too, can take to practice sensible, year-round water conservation-check it out: -Water outside, only when necessary -Sweep, don't wash paved areas -Repair leaky faucets-you will be amazed how much water you will save -Don't dawdle in the Shower. -Wash when your dishwasher and clothes washer are full-ONLY. -Don't run water while brushing teeth, shaving, peeling vegetables, or washing dishes by hand. The California Urban Water Conservation Council's website contains tips for maintenance, leak detection, and repair, along with loads of useful facts and cost-benefit analysis.  To find out more, head to their website at HTTP://www/h2house.org/ac...
