I'm thinking of creating a new tagline - "We screen thousands of crappy green building videos so you don't have to."
Austin, TX; Dallas, TX; Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 23, 2011
Need help finding an energy auditor for your Austin home? Looking to buy a new, energy efficient home in Houston? Planning a green retrofit project and searching for an architect or contractor? Green-Real-Estate.com can probably help. Since its founding in 2008, Green-Real-Estate.com's mission has been to showcase local green building projects, products and services all over the U.S. But recently, the innovative website has increased its scope by expanding both geographically and vertically in the rapidly growing green building industry. Green-Real-Estate.com is riding the wave of several emerging megatrends that enable the site to leverage online video, social media and content curation to provide its users with easy-to-use tools for learning more about the concepts, benefits and how-to's of green building and remodeling where they live.
Currently, Green-Real-Estate.com "curates" over 1,300 green building videos representing most major U.S. markets, and that number is growing quickly. The website has made itself into a "go to" destination for learning about various local green building and development issues by collecting and filtering literally thousands of green building videos from all over the web, and publishing only the best videos for viewing, commenting and sharing by site visitors. "In fact," says Craig Immel, Founder and Editor of Green-Real-Estate.com, "I've been thinking of creating a new tagline - "We screen thousands of crappy green building videos so you don't have to." Immel and a small team of local editors contribute their green building expertise and experience to serve as a "human filter," ensuring that only relevant, reliable and high quality videos are published on the site. It has been estimated that on YouTube alone, over 35 hours of video are uploaded every minute, and with that deluge of video content streaming onto the web, it has become increasingly important that expert human filters collect, screen, organize and provide context to all of this new information. Algorithms and content aggregation alone can not perform this critical role.
Local green builders, material suppliers and service providers are invited to upload their videos to their local channels. “We’ve designed the site to provide a fast and easy way for property sellers and others in green building to easily upload high-quality videos to promote their green real estate, products or services to visitors on the website’s local channels,” explains Immel, a LEED Accredited Professional. "Green-Real-Estate.com is a highly targeted and affordable place to upload their videos and tell their story online." The website earns revenue through limited local advertising and site sponsorships.
