First of all, an insight is nothing more than an opinion, YOUR opinion. Because you’re presenting yourself as the local expert, writing an insight in first-person style will convey familiarity, knowledge, and confidence to potential consumers. It’s often easiest to start at home: as you’re driving around your own subdivision, think about what might appeal to prospective buyers.
Although the space for a photo caption is limited to about 15 to 17 words, you can still maximize your chance to say something about your subject. Grab readers quickly with a thoughtful caption.
The widgets have several different formats, each personalized to you, the agent, and can be placed on your LeadStreet website, blog or any other site where embedding of code is supported. There are several styles of widgets available.
To include a video in an insight, first start with a short written insight about your subject; three or more sentences giving the reader a little information. Then, it is easy to add a video link to the insight. Simply locate the video on YouTube, copy the URL from your browser’s address bar and paste it into the field titled Related Video YouTube Link below the insight text. Click Submit and you’re good to go.
