A short eulogy for Vine

The article was originally published in February of 2013 under the title “Vine is just for Realtors”:

imgres“I have not even used the Vine app yet and am already tired of it.  The app is on my iPad and that is as far as I got.  from what I have seen Vine is just for real estate.

What makes vine different from other video apps?  The videos are mercifully short and it is about editing which up until now has not been done in the real estate industry.

Please don’t use Vine for business until you have attended at east one free webinar and have your Vine strategy in place.

I’ll write more about Vine once I become an expert probably sometime next week.”

Now I would like to ask for a few moments of silence. Twitter announced earlier this week that Vine will be discontinued.

It is a sad day for those who build their real estate empires around a Vine strategy and for those who made money from teaching others how to use Vine in their real estate business.

We must all say goodbye to Vine and put some of that energy into Snapchat and Pinterest strategies because at least one of them is where the future of the real estate industry lies. Just think of Vine as pre-3D video and as we all know video has been the future of the real estate industry since 2003 and will continue to be the next big thing for decades to come.

Products for the real estate industry come and go but each of them leaves a mark. . . . in some cases it is more like a stain . . .the important thing to remember is that there will always be the “next big thing” and  experts on how real estate agents should use it will in most cases make more money from it than the people who take their advice could ever hope to make. (I write like I talk which sucks but that is what happens on self publishing platforms like WordPress)

Buh Byeeeee Vine!
