FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwired - Mar 6, 2014) - RealBiz Media Group, Inc. (OTCQB: RBIZ), a real estate digital media and technology company, today announced its partnership with Marketplace Home Mortgage, LLC, (Marketplace) initiating the adoption of RealBiz's Nestbuilder Agent video-based real estate agent marketing channel platform. Marketplace's Business Builder Division currently partners with many KW Market Centers throughout the Midwest and SW Florida, with a unique commitment to assist their agents in the implementation of their marketing programs and fulfilling their clients mortgage needs.
RealBiz will work with Marketplace teams already located in Keller Williams offices in Minneapolis, MN; Naples, FL; Ft. Myers, FL and Sarasota, FL to begin deploying Nestbuilder Agent's Online Video marketing tools. As part of Marketplace planned expansion, it will add the product to its Market Centers in other cities.
Among the many features built into Nestbuilder Agent, agents may use their Online Video Channel as their primary contact media, optimized to highlight their personal brand and information about them, their listings and their community. "The Online Video Channel video-based content that drives increased SEO for our agents is a key component of our marketing and customer engagement plans. This platform aligns perfectly with Keller Williams' business model, as both have at their core the agent-centric mission of 'your listing, your lead,'" said Mike Cass, Business Development, Division Manager of Marketplace Home Mortgage, LLC. "Through the emphasis upon dynamic video content, we see great opportunity for expanded adoption of the platform by our offices beyond these initial four cities."
"RealBiz Media's focus upon video-rich content in marketing products will allow Keller Williams agents to take advantage of our next-generation niche marketing solutions for real estate agents. We look forward to working with Marketplace Home Mortgage in providing highly targeted and cost-effective agent video marketing tools," said Steve Marques, President and CRO.
