Responding to the rapidly evolving pace of technology and information delivery, RISMedia, the leader in real estate information systems, launched its Daily Video News Update earlier this week. The Video News Update is now featured in each edition of the media firmâ€™s Todayâ€™s Real Estate Advisor e-newsletter.
â€śWe are taking video to a much higher level than ever before in our industry,â€ť says RISMedia President & CEO John Featherston. â€śAlthough we have been producing video as part of our news and information operation for several years now, we have now committed to incorporating unique daily videos into our widely-read, national e-newsletter.â€ť
According to Featherston, RISMediaâ€™s ramped up video effort is a byproduct of the exponential growth of video in general. â€śMore video was loaded to YouTube in the last two months than if ABC, NBC, and CBS had been broadcasting new content 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year since 1948,â€ť explains Featherston, citing RISMediaâ€™s video â€śThe Power of Information,â€ť launched earlier this week. â€śYouTube receives more than 2 billion viewers a day and has become the number-two search engine, second only to Google. As a media firm and central information resource for the real estate industry, it is RISMediaâ€™s responsibility to bring relevant information to real estate professionals and their consumers through the most effective deliver methods, including video.â€ť
Subscribers to RISMediaâ€™s Todayâ€™s Real Estate Advisor will now find a new, Daily Video News Update in each edition of the e-newsletter. Developed in conjunction with industry video producer VScreen, topics will range from important real estate news bulletins to cutting-edge business development strategies. Upcoming topics include â€śMortgage Tax Break Fight,â€ť â€śHousing Affordability,â€ť and â€śFive Twitter Strategies that Work,â€ť for example. On RISMediaâ€™s custom-built media player, readers can not only view the Daily Video News Update but access other news content and previous videos as well.
â€śWe have been serving the real estate industry and home-buying and -selling consumers for more than 30 years,â€ť says Featherston. â€śGoing forward, video will become an even more significant communication tool for us to reach our readers, where ever they may beâ€”at home or on their mobile device.
