Importance of Video Marketing for Home Builders

Video marketing is your biggest opportunity in 2020. If you’re not using video, there’s a good chance your competitors are. Video is a powerful way to communicate your brand story, explain your value proposition, and build relationships with your customers and prospects.

Not only is video content effective it’s also growing in popularity and demand among digital shoppers.

Why Video Matters

You may feel your homebuilder website already provides enough information for homebuyers to make an informed decision with photos, interactive floorplans, lot maps, and amenities, elevation renderings, and more. However, some homebuyers may need more information that’s easily found.

That’s why video matters: it makes it easy to provide additional information homebuyers are looking for. It allows you to become a trusted expert and address common questions, explain the benefits of your company or buying new construction over existing homes, and make a connection with homebuyers so they feel like they already know you before they visit a community.

Here are a few statistics that prove why you should be using video on your home builder website:
