    In real estate we get a lot of questions asked over and over again. Instead of being reactive to the questions, why not be proactive by posting say every Friday at a regular time like 2pm your answers to frequently asked questions.Video is a great way to do these as it also introduces you and your team to your audience. The videos don’t need to be long; 2 minutes is ample.

  3. What’s working now?

    I’m not referring to posting your marketing secrets so your competitors can copy but rather letting your buying and selling audience know what’s working well.Evidence removes doubt and the more times your post results of your marketing campaigns or auction programs producing outstanding results the more often incoming buyers or sellers will adopt your recommendations.

TikTok Launches ‘Elections Guide’ in the US to Provide Users with Accurate, Timely Voting Information

With the US Presidential Election now only 34 days away, TikTok has this week announced its new ‘Elections Guide’, which will help connect its users with authoritative voting information, and limit the spread of misleading reports and updates via the app.

TikTok Election Center

As you can see in these screenshots, TikTok’s Elections Guide will prompt eligible US users to register for the poll, while also providing official information on the voting process in each state via the National Association of Secretaries of State, BallotReady, SignVote, and more. 

As explained by TikTok:

“As with our COVID-19 resource hub, the election guide can be accessed from our Discover page and on election-related search results. We’ll also be linking to the guide at the bottom of videos relating to the elections and on videos from verified political accounts.”

So it’s pretty similar to the approach that both Facebook and Twitter are taking with their election awareness pushes – though you would expect that TikTok will have less of an impact in this regard, given that more than a third of its daily users in the US are aged 14 years old or younger.

But still, it could have an impact. Snapchat, for example, which also caters to a younger audience subset, recently reported that it’s already prompted 400,000 people to register to vote in 2020 via its in-app pushes. TikTok’s audience skews even younger than Snap’s, but any further pushes in this respect can have benefits, and can help drive awareness of civic participation.

And as we’ve seen, TikTok, despite its own efforts, has already been caught up in political controversy. Negotiations over the app’s sale to a US company are ongoing, and it may still face a full ban in the US if it can’t arrange a separation from its Chinese parent company. The rising tensions between China and the US have put the app in the middle of global trade discussions – so despite TikTok not accepting political ads and not being focused on news content, as such, it’s still involved in political messaging, in one way or another.

Given this, it makes sense for TikTok to align with the other social platforms and offer informational pushes. And even if they don’t end up having a major impact, it’s still worth TikTok, from a PR perspective, working to distribute accurate, timely, and helpful election information.

The Modern Guide to Live Streaming

Till recent dates, the term- ‘ corporate social media‘ was defined as a refined, sophisticated profile of a brand and cautiously generated posts. The fundamental objective of the corporate social media was to build influence, promote brand recognition and eventually to sell the products or services. Though the concept of corporate social media hasn’t changed, the procedure has undoubtedly transformed. With the advancements in technology, social media has become more potent with trends like live video streaming. Live broadcasting means the transmission of real-time, continuous video over social media websites or a dedicated streaming platform. With the emergence of Facebook Live, Instagram Live Stories, Snapchat, etc. many people are now familiar with the live broadcasting.

Let’s have a look at different aspects of live streaming step by step.

Live streaming and business – Leveraging live streaming videos for business purpose merits it in multiple ways. Live broadcast allows the sellers to interact virtually with the buyers and that too in real time with the minimum cost. The unedited and natural feel of the content helps to connect with the viewers providing them a personal experience. Videos broadcasted on social media makes the business viral as its reach is way broader than other mediums. When a video is live streamed on social media, it keeps on trending as the viewers keep commenting, liking and sharing it if they wish so. A steady internet bandwidth, a good camera, and enough talent are all you need to create live videos. Hence, the cost involved in it is very minimal. Once the live streaming is done, you can use it to make a content marketing catalogue. The video content can prove to be extremely useful for promotional purposes such as testimonials, websites, social media marketing and so on. Live videos are boon for those entrepreneurs who are seeking an enormous market exposure around the world.

Ideal practices for live streaming – First, you need to focus on the preparation of your live streaming video. Scribble a basic format of your video or program; be it scripted or an extempore. Chalk out the execution methods and likely issues. Finally, make a complete plan of production taking into account adjacent aspects of infrastructure, workforce, finance, etc. Secondly, never compromise on video quality. As per your budget, seek for the best possible equipment to conduct a shoot. Technology and resources utilized in the production and post-production of your video decide the future of your live stream videos; so never overlook it.

Once you are done with the production, look for its promotion. You must treat the live videos as live shows. Opt for promotional efforts like emailers, social or digital commercials, teaser videos and so on. Create excitement about your upcoming live video so that you already start gathering the audience. Build a sound strategy to boost your marketing initiatives depending on the results you are expecting. Keep brainstorming for innovative ideas and concepts that are likely to appeal the viewers.

Before you step ahead to make your video live stream; think carefully about the desired platform. As discussed, you can live stream the video on any platform of your choice; however, you also need to consider specifications of your requirements. For instance, the purpose of your video, target audience, a changed perspective to attract potential customers, method, and scope for interactivity and compatibility with the platform. Once you understand what exactly your video needs to reach out to the world; you can quickly pick up the best platform. There are many streaming apps that allow you to live stream your video on multiple social networking platforms at a time.

Tricks for a kick-start streaming strategy – You can keep closed sessions such as customers Q & A, experts Q & A for spinning your video to a great extent. When customers interact with each other regarding the content; sharing of experiences and feedbacks takes place. Influencers and industry experts too can involve in the process to clarify the doubts of the viewers. Product launch or product demos are likely to get massive publicity if conducted in a live broadcasting video format. They create an excitement and engagement extravaganza about whatever you are launching or showing it to the buyers. Events, campaigns or contests when supported by social media, get excellent responses. A strategy made with considering pros and cons of the live video you are making is known to be the most feasible and successful one.

To summarize this topic, the suggestion is to focus on the interest elements of your target audience. Fun has to be included in an innovative way that will blend the desired message or information within your video. Each of your live streaming videos will be undoubtedly a learning experience for you! Keep creating, keep streaming!

Pinterest Launches New Holiday Hub and Marketing Guide to Assist with Holiday Campaigns

Christmas is now only 94 days away, and this week, Pinterest has launched its latest holiday marketing hub in order to help businesses tap into Pins to help maximize their holiday sales performance.

Pinterest marketing

The hub includes links to a range of Pinterest resources and tools, including previous research reports, case studies, audience persona insights and more.

In addition to this, Pinterest has also published a new, 13-page holiday marketing guide, which outlines key usage stats, and underlines the case for Pinterest within your 2020 holiday marketing approach. 

Pinterest holiday marketing guide

Indeed, like all social platforms, Pinterest is seeing increased usage in 2020 due to the global lockdowns to restrict the spread of COVID-19. The difference in Pinterest’s case is that it’s more specifically focused on shopping and product discovery – in some ways, Pinterest has replaced the physical shopping mall, providing a means for users to browse product displays, and options tailored to their sppecific interests.

Clearly, Pinterest is doing something right on this front – the platform is now up to 416 million active users, and is growing faster than Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter. Its refined focus on eCommerce is also helping guide users to more products, while Pinterest has previously noted that Pinners are looking to plan for the holidays much earlier in 2020 as people look forward to a time when the COVID-19 restrictions are eased and we can catch up with family and friends again.

Which may not necessarily be Christmas – but even so, holiday searches on Pinterest jumped 77% YoY in April, which included a 3x increase in searches for “Christmas gift ideas”, along with other queries like “holiday recipes” and “Christmas”.

Clearly, Pinners are looking to get into a festive mood – which is why the platform could be great for your 2020 holiday promotions.

Pinterest’s holiday guide outlines five key steps to take in mapping out your holiday Pin strategy:

There are some valuable notes here, and insights into audience segments, which may help you establish a more effective approach to Pin campaigns, if that’s where you’re looking.

How to Download Instagram Reels: A Step-by-Step Guide

If you maintain a presence on Instagram Reels and multiple social media platforms, you know how hard it is to keep up with content creation for all of those platforms. When your focus is short-form video content, it can be time-consuming and tiring to create enough of that content to go around. Fortunately, using your Instagram Reels content on other social media platforms isn’t hard. In this article, we’re going to teach you how to download Instagram Reels on Android or iOS, via screen recording, or using a software called Kapwing.

Why is this important? Well, if you download your own Reels on Instagram, you’ll notice that the sound is removed. Plus, you can’t download Reels shared by other users at all. With this article, though, you’ll learn how to download Instagram Reels with the original sound.

Of course, knowing how to download Instagram Reels is only part of the equation, though. That’s why we’re also going to share three ways you can repurpose your Instagram Reels to keep your audience engaged and entertained. 

How to Download Instagram Reels: A Step-by-Step Guide:

What Is Instagram Reels?

Not sure what Instagram Reels actually is? Instagram Reels is a new Instagram feature (not a standalone app) built to be a TikTok alternative. Users can create 15-second video clips set to music and share them to their Instagram Stories, the Explore Feed, and the new Reels tab on their profile. The feature is available in India, Brasil, the United States, and about 50 other countries.

The Explore Feed is the Instagram Reels version of TikTok’s For You page. On the Explore Feed, you can find Reels from popular and trending accounts on Instagram. You’ll find Instagram Reels from people you follow alongside traditional Instagram posts in your newsfeed.

The Instagram Reels algorithm is a bit of a mystery as of yet, but if it follows the Instagram algorithm, there are some assumptions we can make. TikTok’s For You page is algorithmically generated based on the way TikTok’s users are engaging with videos and it does an eerily great job of pushing content to users based on their interests and activity on the app. TikTok starts by pushing out new content to a sample of users, pushing it out to more users if the response is positive. This makes it relatively easy for creators to go viral on TikTok but also makes it a lot more likely that the virality cycles quickly.

Instagram’s algorithm is a bit different, giving priority to content depending on the accounts you follow and engage with most. So, if Reels uses that same algorithm, well, boring.

Fortunately, Instagram’s VP of Product, Vishal Shah, has said that recommendations for Instagram Reels will be different than other Instagram content on the Explore Feed, making it easier for new creators and content to be discovered.

How to Create Reels

Before you can download them, you need to know how to create Instagram Reels. Here’s a quick rundown.

Start by choosing Reels at the bottom of the Instagram camera. Here, you’ll see a variety of editing tools on the left side of your screen to help create your reel.


You can search for songs in the Instagram music library or use your own original audio by recording a reel with sound. If you share a reel using your own original audio, that audio will be attributed to you. If you have a public account, though, other users can create reels using your audio by tapping “Use Audio” from your reel.


The effect gallery includes effects created both by Instagram and by creators worldwide.

Timer and Countdown

To record handsfree, just set the timer to record. When you press record, you’ll get a countdown from three before recording begins.


If you’re using multiple clips, you can use the Align feature to line up objects from your previous clip before recording your next. This helps users create seamless transitions for those fun outfit changes or so you can add new elements into your reel.


You can speed up or slow down parts of the video or audio you selected. This is great for staying on a beat or making slow-motion videos.

Ready to share your creation on Instagram and your other social media platforms? Not so fast. While TikTok made it pretty easy to download and share videos, Instagram Reels isn’t as straightforward.

How to Save Instagram Reels In the App

Here are the steps to save Instagram Reels within the Instagram app.

Start by opening Instagram and tapping the search button. From there, you’ll open the Reels video you want to download.

You can also do this from a user’s profile. Just tap the new Reels tab next to the IGTV tab and choose the Reels video you want to download to open it.

Once you have the Reel open, tap the three-dots icon in the menu at the bottom of the screen, and then tap Save.

To access the saved reel, go back to the Instagram home screen and tap your profile icon > the hamburger menu icon > Settings > Account > Saved. Here you’ll find your saved videos in the All Posts folder.

How to Download Instagram Reels on Android

If you have an Android phone, this is how to download Instagram Reels. It involves downloading another app from the Google Play store.

Go to Google Play and download Video Downloader for Instagram – Repost Instagram.

Install the app, open it, and set it up. This involves giving the app access to your photos, media, and files on your device. After you’ve set up Video Downloader, go back to Instagram and choose the reel you want to download. Tap the three-dots icon > Copy Link.

Go back to Video Downloader and the URL for the reel you just copied will be pasted there automatically.

Go to your phone’s images and you’ll find the reel there. You’ll be able to edit it and share it on other apps.

How to Download Instagram Reels on iPhone

To download Instagram Reels to your iPhone, you’ll first need to visit the App Store and download the app InSaver for Instagram.

Open the app and set it up, giving it permission to access your images and media. Next, go back to Instagram and choose the Reels video you want to download. Then, tap the three-dot icon > Copy Link.

Go back to InSaver and the link you copied from Instagram will automatically be pasted there.

Tap Watch It! >  Options > Share > Save Video to save the video to your device’s Photos app.

How to Download Instagram Reels Via Screen Recording

If you don’t want to download a third-party app, here’s how to download Instagram Reels via screen recording.


Make sure screen recording is available in the Control Center. To do this, go to Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls and add Screen Recording.

Next, go to Instagram and open the reel that you want to download. Swipe up to show your iPhone’s Control Center. Then, tap Start Recording and start playing the video in Instagram. Once you’ve recorded the video, stop the screen recording by tapping the red bar at the top then Stop. The video will be saved to your Photos app. You’ll probably want to edit the video to make sure you only have the Reels portion and none of the fiddling with the Control Center and starting or stopping your recording.


On Android phones, you’re either going to use the built-in screen recorder (if your phone has one) or the third-party app you use for screen recording. Once you have your method of screen recording ready to go, open Instagram and play the video you want to download.

When you’re done, tap the stop button to stop your recording. Your screen recording will be saved in your phone’s gallery.

Repurpose Your Instagram Reels Content

Now that you know how to download Instagram Reels, it’s time to put those downloads to use. You can do this by repurposing your Instagram Reels content. This just means that you’ll be taking video from Instagram Reels and reusing it elsewhere.

Repurposing content has several benefits. For starters, if you’re able to reuse your content, you’ll have more time to devote to creating high-quality content because you’re not going to have to invest time and energy in creating a completely different video for each of your social media platforms.

Repurposing your Instagram content can also give you an SEO boost since having several pieces of content based on the same concept or topic can bring about multiple chances to target a specific keyword. And, when your repurposed content is published outside of your own site, you can get some great backlinking opportunities.

Repurposed content also affords you the opportunity to reach an entirely new audience. How? Different people use different platforms. When you post your content across platforms, you can reach your target audience where they already hang out online. Plus, even if your target audience overlaps across multiple platforms, repurposing your content still helps to reinforce your message.

Repurposing your content can also help you build authority on a topic. When your high-quality content shows up in multiple places in a short period of time, it helps to raise your profile in your industry and show others that you are a thought leader in your niche.

So, how do you repurpose your Instagram Reels content? Here are three ways to repurpose your content that we like.

Instagram Highlights

Many creators use them as frequently asked questions or to save content into collections. And, highlights are a great place for your Instagram Reels. You can either add them to a Reels highlight or break them out into highlights about specific topics.


Pinterest lets you add video Pins with a 15-second limit. Wouldn’t you know it, Instagram Reels also have a 15-second limit, making them a perfect format to include in your video Pins. Repurposing your Instagram Reels as video Pins on Pinterest can help you build your brand on the platform.

Other Social Media Platforms

You can use your Instagram Reels content on other social media platforms. If you use TikTok, for instance, you can use the content you’ve already created for Instagram Reels to leverage the TikTok algorithm and increase your viral potential.

Download Instagram Reels to Repurpose Content Easily

Instagram Reels is a great platform for Instagram influencers who already have a following on the platform. But you don’t want to put the fate of your brand in a single platform. Now that you know how to download Instagram Reels, you can repurpose your content across platforms and position yourself as an authority and thought leader in your niche.

Instagram Reels is currently a wide-open market for users, presenting a great opportunity for influencers and brands to start building a presence or extending their reach on the platform, earning more followers and building their community before Instagram Reels ends up saturated.
