Since 2015, Hudson Valley-based photographer Maxwell Alexander has been providing top-notch photography to his clients, including real estate agents, home sellers, and business owners. In addition to his services as a photographer, he also owns Alluvion Media, a video production company that provides clients with both video and still photography for their marketing needs. Many of his photos and videos are shot with an aerial drone, allowing him to capture footage like this gorgeous Hudson Valley property that might otherwise be impossible to get with regular camera equipment
Top Reasons Why You Need Aerial Drone Photography by Alluvion Real Estate Media
There’s a growing trend among real estate agents to promote their listings with aerial drone photography. It’s certainly less expensive than hiring a professional photographer, but more importantly, homes that have professional drone video receive on average 87% more views than those without.
Here are five reasons why you should consider investing in aerial drone video:
- It helps your listing stand out.
- Clients like it.
- It shows attention to detail.
- There is value to using your own agent’s work rather than stock photography or images from other sites/agents on social media channels.
- It gives you some awesome footage for yourself and your clients.
If that wasn’t enough, here’s another reason: as US News & World Report pointed out earlier this year Videos can do much better at increasing view time. The shorter people are engaged online, say, experts who study user behavior online, the shorter our attention span gets. The longer we linger on videos, no matter what content they contain, says Eli Pariser who heads up viral-content aggregator Upworthy (which routinely has been credited for driving millions of eyeballs to various videos), the slower we get at going elsewhere online. When we read long stories online [or] watch long videos … there seems to be something about it that reduces how quickly we churn away from them.
