  • 7. HAR Member and Listing Videos
    HAR has developed a tool which allows HAR members to upload and share videos of themselves, their firm, and their listings with consumers on HAR.com. The member videos will add value by providing agents with an
    opportunity to market themselves beyond just a static image and bio – allowing agents to engage their customers in a new way. The listing videos provide consumers
    the opportunity to capture a more
    in-depth view of the property that
    still photos simply can’t provide.

    The Consumer Knowledge Series of videos was created to help educate consumers about real estate and to promote the value of using a REALTOR. The short video clips include topics ranging from the real estate industry in general to the different types
    of disclosures
    that consumers
    need to be
    aware of.
  • 10. HAR and Social Media Integration
    Social media marketing is all about collaboration between people. It is about participating with everyone and sharing information. It is as much about giving as it is about receiving from the group. The premise of social media marketing is to engage with the consumer and provide value.
