RealBiz Media Group, Inc. Sets Stage for Accelerated Growth in 2015

Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) December 16, 2014

RealBiz Media Group, Inc.(OTCQB: RBIZ), announced today an update of 2014 accomplishments and expectations for next year.

RealBizs backbone is centered on its proprietary video production and distribution technology, which has produced over 10,000,000 videos in the last year, making it a leader in the real estate industry. The companys proprietary technology allows for the automated conversion of data, including text and pictures of home listings, into video with voice and music. Once created, the videos can automatically be distributed to multiple media platforms (television, broadband, web and mobile) for consumer viewing. With the move to automated creation processes in combination with emerging video adoption, RealBiz now develops custom enterprise solutions to support existing and new franchise partners.

RealBiz also enjoys access to the nations largest real estate companies with numerous approved vendors and national contracts, substantiated by recent new contracts including over $ 1 million orders from national accounts. The patented technology has capability to convert 500,000 images to videos/hour. The companys Realtor relationship gives it access to over 20 independent feeds as well as List Hub and others, making it one of the largest and most current video databases in the real estate market.

During 2014, we have transformed from a largely developmental company to a company with several unique products currently available for real estate professionals and consumers. National players in this industry are beginning to understand the value that our suite of products will bring them. As a result of all the recent developments and partnerships, the company is projecting a sizeable uptick in revenue. RealBiz is currently targeting $ 10 million in annual revenue during 2015, up from its current $ 1 million in 2014, said Bill Kerby, CEO of RealBiz Media Group, Inc.

Key drivers behind this revenue growth will come as a result of RealBiz completing the deployment of its complete product lineup of innovative video based websites, apps and marketing services. During 2014, the company acquired ReachFactor, a full-marketing agency that specialized web design, digital ad campaigns, blogging, social media management, reputation management, search engine optimization and much more. The company also launched Nestbuilder.com, the Agent MVA marketing Platform, ezflix and Nestbuilder apps in the Android version. Rounding out the product lineup will be the launching of the IOS versions of Nestbuilder and ezflix as well as the introduction of the Home and Away Club rewards programs for both agents and consumers.

The ezflix app will be used as one of the primary onboarding tools. This product is the only mobile app available to real estate agents that pre-integrates property listings from multiple listing services so that agents can then create and customize digital material such as video, mini commercials, neighborhood tours and community events to provide prospective buyers more contexts about every listing. RealBiz has distilled the complexities of digital market and providing agents with a brilliantly simple drag and drop platform that allows them to deliver the video content that their target customers crave. In 2015, the ezflix app will be targeted to the companys database of more than 350,000 real estate agents and brokers, forming a key part of the companys agent on-boarding plans.

RealBizs platforms create a complete real estate marketing tool, integrating SEO/VSEO strategies, traffic and lead generation with mobile-friendly viewing across all devices. The companys technology provides comprehensive capabilities that others in the industry cannot include:
