Royal LePage launched www.royallepagetv.ca, a web portal of instructional/educational videos for real estate consumers to watch and learn more about the buying/selling process. From my initial look, the site looks great. It is great to see a Canadian real estate company stepping up and investing to become Web 2.0 friendly in this ever changing business.
One big complaint is that they did not make the videos embeddable. Lately widgets have become all the rage. An embeddable widget would allow users to spread a message. Why not let anyone embed the videos on their website or blog. They have Royal LePage branding so all it could possibly do is help spread the message about the company and get ten times more exposure.
Maybe they allow Royal LePage agents to embed videos with a username and password……. I hope that it is something that is in the pipeline and that they will be releasing shortly. The power of the internet is immense if you embrace it.
