WAV Group will be hosting a free informational webinar next Tuesday 2nd May at 10am PST (register here) to provide information about the new offer from This Old House to allow brokerage firms to display their award winning video content at no charge. Brokers have been benefiting from video publishing on their listing pages and community pages for years – but the process of getting fresh, high production quality video has been painful and expensive. This Old House is seeking to drive video views on their content and is partnering with brokers to achieve that objective. It’s great for brokers and helpful to This Old House – a true win-win collaboration.
You are likely to be familiar with This Old House – but here is a primer if you are not. With over 35 years of house and home content, This Old House launched the genre 36 years ago. The crew continues to share their expertise and sense of humor with homeowners as they guide the transformation of two diamonds in the rough.
This Old House is proud to present our new Real Estate Network, an exciting and efficient way for real estate publishers to leverage the 35+ year content library of TOH to better engage consumers, keep them on your site longer, increase repeat visits, generate more leads and develop incremental revenue.
