Have you ever heard the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words”? If that’s true, then a video may be worth a million. It’s no secret that video is taking over the Internet, and quickly. Last year, HAR had signage displayed that read “Everyday, 2 billion videos are viewed on YouTube.” That number is now up to more than 3 billion and continues to increase every day. In fact, YouTube users upload 48 hours of video every minute.

I recently purchased a new camera and the first place I went before I purchased it was YouTube. Sure enough, I found more than 200 videos on usage, operation tips, samples of video quality and of course reviews.

Why is this important to you? Because your consumers are on the Internet all day, every day, and you want your properties and your services to be the focus of their attention.

Consumers are looking for good quality visuals of a product or service to help them decide if it’s something they want to purchase or commit to. At HAR-TV, we provide just that for all our members.

Who wants to look at pixilated photos and watch grainy videos? Not me! Most consumers click away if they can’t find a good quality image. Our studio is fully equipped to provide you with high quality HD videos. They can be watched on a desktop, mobile device or even a big screen HD TV. This is where consumers are looking for their services and we want to help you get there.

We have the latest editing software that will help create a video that resembles a professional-standard commercial. In fact, we’ve had several agents shoot videos with us and use them for commercials on network-affiliated TV stations.

The process is very simple and the only thing that HAR-TV asks of you is that you come to our studio at HAR’s central office prepared. We take the stress out of the process by walking you through the editing of the script, selection of the photos, background and music you want to incorporate, scheduling a time, determining what you should wear and any other important details.

It’s perfectly natural to feel self-conscious in front of a camera, especially a video camera, but we have worked with many members who have doubts about their on-camera performance. The comment we hear almost every time is, “You made that easier than I thought it would be!” We will make you feel as comfortable as possible, play back your video for your review and we won’t leave the studio until you are completely satisfied with the results of your taping session.

Once we have a finished and edited product for you, it will be uploaded to YouTube, which means it can later be attached to any other YouTube Channel, Facebook page, Twitter site or external websites, thereby helping maximize your online search optimization.

At HAR-TV, we believe that anyone can be a natural on camera with the proper preparation and direction from our expert video staff. Let us help create a top-quality high definition video for your marketing needs. Call today to schedule your video session. Ask for Fred Blanton or Claudia Hernandez.
