Jenny Overman staff reporter with the Fort Mill Times wrote an article on August5, 2008 about how you can learn a lot about places and people on YouTube.com. Her article points out there are several videos on or about our area like Tega Cay, Fort Mill, and Indian Land.
Jenny said local residents are using YouTube to post videos for entertainment, make political statements, and business. She did a YouTube search for Tega Cay and came up with more than 15 real estate videos. Of course Carmen has all of her home for sale videos posted on YouTube so Jenny called Carmen for an interview and printed the following quote:
Carmen Miller, with Century 21 First Choice, uses YouTube to appeal to “Generation Y,” she said.
“We figured that over 80 percent of home buyers use the Internet and the big buyer pool coming in is 30 and under,” Miller said. “So we tried to think the way they think.”
By the way, Carmen hates it when I post things like this about her. With her continued success she’ll just have to put up with my blog posts about her.
Internet marketing is very important these days. The internet communicates to several age groups. We just launched two new websites to help promote our area called aboutfortmill.com and seetegacay.com. The two new websites are focused more on information about the towns, people and news and less about real estate.
We also have future plans to produce more and better quality videos about our area. So stayed tune for more internet “tube” stuff.
Jenny, thanks for the article quote. To see Jenny’s article click to go to the Fort Mill Times article.
