What’s up y’all. Trevor here with Carrot
Creating content for your real estate website as an agent is easier than you think. Today we show you how to shoot videos without any fancy cameras or lights, or scripts.
Many of you guys are not doing what I’m asking you to do and doing video posts.
Putting content online is critical for standing out and building expertise, building authority, and our tool called VideoPosts turns your short videos into written content that ranks.
In this video, I’m going to actually do one in real-time, show you how I ideate, find the idea, research it, do the video, get it uploaded, and optimize it, all in one. It’s a real video. I’m putting it on my own site.
So first thing right here: doing a videopost in real-time. I’m going to go through it really quick.
First of all, we’re going to pick the topic based on the niche that you’d like to own.
Next, we’re going to research it using Google suggest; it’s crazy, easy, free, simple, cheap.
Number three, shoot the video, under three to five minutes, using this fancy, crazy expensive tool called a cell phone.
Number four, upload the video to YouTube from your cell phone.
Number five, optimize and create the videoposts in Carrot, all in under 10 minutes.
All right. The first thing we’re going to do here is … I’m in Roseburg, Oregon. I have an entrepreneur cowork space called The Loft.
I want to rank a video there for people that are looking to find a cowork space. I’m going to go to Google right here. I’m just going to type up phrases that I think someone might want to search if they’re looking for a cowork space.
So Roseburg co … We’re at Roseburg cowork … Right there: Roseburg coworking space. Cool.
So that’s my title. I’m going to click this and see what’s ranking here. We’ve got this. The Loft Roseburg is there, but I want my personal website rank in there.
Okay? I want my personal website rank in there. So I’m going to create a video. I’m going to upload it. I’m going to optimize it for Roseburg coworking space.
I know that’s the phrase people like the search. I’m going to scroll down to see if there are any suggested searches at the bottom. That’s a pretty obscure search phrase so there’s not any there.
If there were, you can use those search phrases at the bottom.
Here’s an example. Let’s say it was North Umpqua river homes … Homes for sale.
You can use the suggested searches for ideas right here. These are ideas you can work into. the words of your video.
One of the keys here, one of the keys right before I start to record this is you need to be saying the types of words in your video that people are going to be searching in Google.
So whatever you say is actually going to then get put in the video, which we’re going to yank the words out and put it in writing.
The way that you rank well with videoposts is to localize all of your content. I’m going to do it in real-time right here, doing a videopost to rank really high. We’ll show you the real results later for Roseburg coworking space.

Cool. So, you see it wasn’t perfect. I stumbled a bunch, I didn’t know what words I was going to say sometimes, but you make it through it.
And while I’m heading back to the office, I’m actually going to upload that on YouTube in real-time.
So the title for this one is just going to be Roseburg Coworking Space, probably put a “dash, The Loft.”
I’m going to click “upload.” It’s now uploading on my phone. It’s going to take them a minute or so. And then from there, I can take that and I can put it directly inside of my Carrot site.
So I’m now logged into my Carrot site, over here, and I’m going to show you where to go for video posts.
So right here I’m going to log into my account. I’m going to click “content.” And we’re doing some things to make this even simpler and quicker. And then we go to “posts.” Okay, and then just go ahead and click “add new.”
Just go ahead and start a new post.
And there’s this little option right there that says “video,” okay? And what I’m going to do is I’m just going to go to my YouTube account … So YouTube.
So go to my channel. I’m not a professional YouTube. I’m working my way through this as well. Okay, so right now this video is uploading. It’s crunching. It should end up here in my account here in a bit. I did mark it as unlisted, but you can see right there, it’s still uploading right now. It’s about one minute remaining.
Once I get this video, what I’m going to do is I’m going to put it inside of video posts. I’m just going to take that URL. I’m going to paste it right there. It’s going to import everything in.
The title for video posts should be the keyword that I typed up into Google, which was Roseburg Coworking Space.
I’m going to maybe put a little bit of content on the back end of it so it’s not just this boring short title. it’s probably going to be Roseburg Coworking Space – The Loft.
Let’s go and do this. Roseburg Coworking Space, downtown offices at The Loft workspace.
That’s a long title. You have to make it like that. But you can see, I put my title right there. I’m waiting for my video to upload and start crunching.
Once I get the video in there, I’m just going to go ahead and paste the URL straight in there. Okay, I’m going to do it right there and then there’s going to be a button right here that you click and that’s it. That’s all you’re going to do.
So I’m going to take a video right now just for sake of time on this particular video, and I will put in my old Loft video.
I’m just going to go edit right there, copy and paste the URL. You can see our system imported the whole thing in there. And then if I was logged into an actual Carrot account, there’d be a big button there that says “transcribe.” Click that button and you are done.
So I’m going to do that. We’re going to check back in in a couple of weeks and see where that video post is ranked in Google.
That’s it. The steps were this, let me review them:
Pick your topic, whatever your topic is going to be. In this case, I want it to rank well for coworking spaces. That’s one of my niches.
Research using Google Suggest to peg a title, just like I did. Just go to Google and start typing in what your prospect might type in, find other suggested phrases. That’s now you’re going to be your title. Pick the best one of those for your title.
Make sure you say those words in your video in natural spots multiple times. Say different words that are related to that.
Okay. The next step here is you go shoot the video. Make it a three to five-minute video. That video I shot was four minutes. Upload it to YouTube straight from your cell phone.
The title of that should be the word that you grabbed from Google. Throw that now into videopost with Carrot and you’re done.
All right, I want to challenge you to make your first video post. You saw this whole video, including flub ups, including us walking around, actually not producing the video post, is right around 10 minutes.
We know that you can do the same thing. My videopost was four minutes. It took me three minutes to upload it to YouTube, a minute to research it, four minutes to walk around filming myself, flubbing up words.
The people are going to love it and it’s going to rank well on Google. Do the same thing. Use videoposts!
