Smart TVs - Over 100 Million Smart TVs that is...and growing!
Your clients are moving off of tablets and laptops and grabbing the voice activated remote "show me real estate". Our solution puts you in front of a new audience, and that audience is growing each day pushing you in front of millions of homes in the United States using ROKU and Amazon Fire TV Devices as well as new fully integrated TVs powered by both ROKU and/or Amazon's Fire TV. Millions are cutting the "Cable TV cord" and going Smart TV. And they are waiting on your channel to appear.
Example traffic: Our first ROKU channel Lake Of The Ozarks Real Estate built in 2017 receives thousands of views to each video. (5,500 views on average). To compare, the same video uploaded to the Realtor's website, their Multiple Listing Service and to social media received approx 65 views. That same video was played 5,600 times on Roku during the same period That's 98.83 times more people who watched her client's virtual tour. And now we have expanded to Amazon with Apple TV and Disney next.
While Realtors "do" need a website, google displays 2.38 Billion pages for you to compete against. 2 years ago we had only 4 TV channels competing against us for the impossible Broad keyword "real estate". There are 100 Million smart TV's in America today! No matter what market you are in, real estate...pick a city...you win the traffic! While the traffic has been huge, it is just a drop in the bucket compared to what is coming as people start asking their remote to find a channel on this or that. It is THE next wave and Video is here to stay. More importantly your video on a 65 inch HD Screen looks better than the 14 inch laptop screen. Broaden to where your audience is moving....the Smart TV.
Our service will place your videos content on your very own ROKU channel and matching Amazon Fire TV Channel. It's all updated automatically within 24 hours whenever you add a new video.
Video? Yes, this is television so the only thing we need to keep the viewer engaged are well made videos. Slideshow videos are fine and will work if you do not have a good videographer. People love video so we suggest finding a good video tour provider or learning how to take great video yourself.
What about 3D Matterport™? Good question...The actual 3D interface is for websites and not TV so generally it is useless for use on a Smart TV channel. We will see the ability someday, but it is not here quite yet.
But...it is possible to output a video from a Matterport™ tour. We have even seen a combination of regular video and Matterport™ video though it is more expensive to produce. If you are not already using a 3D solution, we recommend going Video instead. It is a very "cool" technology but does not increase your traffic like video. More important is that Video can reach 100 Million Smart TV users too. If you are using it, then tell your Matterport™ person, you will need a video output version to upload to your TV station.
