Beyond YouTube: CRE TV

By Nick Minoia, Diversified Properties and  PJ Argen is CRE TV

Montville, NJ - CRE TV — In the dynamic landscape of online video content, businesses are constantly seeking effective ways to showcase their services. While YouTube is the most popular platform, it may not be the optimal choice when it comes to embedding video content on your website. In this article, we’ll explore these and other limitations of YouTube, and why a third-party CRE TV news report featuring YOU with a dedicated video platform like the CRE TV News Network might be a more powerful and credible option for commercial real estate professionals in 2024.

YouTube Limitations:

YouTube, undoubtedly a giant in the video-sharing sphere, presents certain drawbacks for businesses embedding content on their websites. One major concern is the lack of control over suggested videos that may appear after yours. These “promoted” suggestions might lead viewers away from your site, diluting your intended message and potentially directing them to competitor content.

Moreover, YouTube may introduce ads before or during your video, creating a distraction and diminishing the professional image you seek to portray. Additionally, the platform’s algorithmic nature may not always prioritize your content in search results, making it challenging to stand out amidst the vast sea of videos.

Third-Party Reporter vs. Self-Promotion:

Imagine if you could turn every press release into a TV News story? A TV segment produced by a third-party reporter holds inherent credibility and authenticity. When an independent reporter covers your company or professional service, it implies and delivers a level of objectivity and validation that self-produced videos often lack. Third-party endorsements foster trust and confidence among your audience, making it a more powerful tool for reputation management.

Conversely, creating a video in the first person, solely for self-promotion, can come across as self-serving and lack the credibility associated with unbiased reporting. Viewers may be skeptical of overly promotional content, potentially undermining the impact of the message.

Enter CRE TV:
