What Are FlashCards?

FlashCards are a social media video that you can easily download and post to any social media site.  With FlashCards, you get a square video that attracts 30% more views and up to 100% more engagement than a traditional landscape video!  The following requirements must be met for FlashCards to be available: 

  • Must have at least 8 photos that are 600×600 pixels
  • Must have a property address (including City and State)

The following will be displayed in each of your FlashCards:

  • First 8-24 Photos (after excluding video clips, vertical photos, and photos smaller than 600pixels)
  • Agent Name
  • Agent Photo
  • Office Logo
  • Agent Phone Number
  • Agent Email Address
  • Listing Price
  • Bedrooms/Bathrooms
  • Square Footage
