Step 1. Have your Content Ready
To create your video slideshow you must first have all your images ready. Make sure you have a minimum resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels.
It's also a good idea to have all your relevant property details available, like price, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage and address.
Your slideshow should also include your contact information, like phone number, email or website address, so potential leads can easily reach out to you.
Step 2. What is the Slideshow for?
It's a good idea to know what step of the sale process your slideshow is promoting. Are you creating a slideshow for:
- Just Listed
- Open House
- Price Reduced

When creating your slideshow make sure the relevant details like open house date and address or new price are prominently displayed. MakerMoon has slideshow templates available for each of the above use cases.
