Aerial Canvas is a creative content production and real estate marketing startup headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our agency's mission to make creativity more accessible to the world. We believe in leveraging our combined passion and expertise to help others elevate their business and brand. We double-down on our strengths and constantly seek to develop our weaknesses because we believe we owe the world the best version of ourselves.
As a privately funded and owned organization, we are allowed the ability to experiment, innovate, and disrupt with no limits. We are not afraid to push boundaries and embrace the adoption of new technology, strategies, or mindsets. We value open communication, team chemistry, and our vast diversity of thought. Our Core Values can be found on www.aerialcanvas.com/corevalues.
Here is a brief recap of our year in 2020:
We Are Growing!
We are seeking self-motivated, passionate, and forward-thinking individuals who are interested in being an early adopter. We value our team's time and involvement and revere each one of our contributions as investments. As such, we foster peer-to-peer accountability to help us achieve our goal of global reach so our early adopters can see a tangible return on their investments.
Our ideal early adopters possess a strong foundation that matches our 4 key pillars:
They take extreme ownership and get things done with no excuses. They stay connected to the development of the work and lead from the front. Detail orientation is elementary to them–they take it one step further and exhibit detail-obsessiveness. The work does not stop at the parts that are not in their job description. No task is beneath them. They have grit and are resilient in the face of setbacks. They can listen objectively and lean on their team to improve their own work. They reciprocate that relationship of co-dependency. They are the opposite of hapless.
They are able to evaluate opposing perspectives, even if it is inconvenient or uncomfortable to them. Awareness means constantly reflecting and revising their view on how the world works. It means to see when and where they are wrong and to have the courage to adjust. They challenge their own thoughts before they present their position. They practice empathy and can codeswitch. They share the sentiment that intelligent people have strong opinions that are weakly held and are not refrained by their own convictions.
Comfortable with Ambiguity
They do not just talk or theorize, they act with urgency and effectiveness. They can clearly identify the 20% of the work that creates 80% of the impact. By consistently executing on the 20% high impact work, startups can deliver exponentially faster than their competition. Figuring out what problem to solve is deceptively hard. We value talent that cuts through the ambiguous and complex problems with great clarity and simplicity. They know enough to know that they can never know enough.
They seek what is best for Aerial Canvas rather than what is best for themselves or their group. They are stubbornly open-minded in search of the best ideas. They understand that time is not something they have but rather something they make and they make time to help their colleagues. They share information openly and proactively. They are a force multiplier. They make it a priority to help their teammates succeed. They check their ego at the door and let the best ideas win, even if it is not their own. They are honest and motivated to improve the world around them.

Listings with video are given approximately a 2x boost on exposure in search results. Here's a quote from Zillow. “Listings with video walkthroughs are given a boost in Zillow's search algorithm, resulting in more views and saves on average. Search order is largely based on personalization and user behavior, but the only way as an agent to influence your listing’s ranking is by adding a video. In addition, every time a video is uploaded to Zillow an email notification is sent to potentially hundreds of buyers – anyone with a saved search in that area. This email lets a Zillow user know that a video has been uploaded to a home in their area, and invites them to take a look. These benefits from Zillow add greater visibility to your listing and help you find more qualified buyers, as you’ll be talking with buyers who can watch a video walkthrough of the home before contacting you. Also, Millennial home buyers are coming to expect media options beyond just photos when they search for a home. In this year’s trends report, Zillow found that "Tech-savvy Millennial and Gen Z buyers may find greater value than older generations in using video/live virtual or 3D tours to help them make decisions. 45 percent of Gen Z and 41 percent of Millennial buyers find watching a recorded video of a home very or extremely important in helping them decide on their home" ( -2018 Zillow Trends Report)

Why better photos?Better photos will help you sell your listing for more. Photos are a reflectiion of you and your listing. How do you think poor quality photos reflect in the quality of your marketing, your listing, and your brand? Now, let's get you better photos :) Here are some significant photo marketing statistics: High quality images generate approximately 17% more demand. (Carnegie Mellon University) Real Estate Listings that include aerial photos sell 68% faster than listings that don’t. (National Association of Realtors) According to the NAR 73% of sellers want to list with an Agency that uses videos. (National Association of Realtors) Buyers spend 60% of their time looking at listing photos and only 20% at descriptions. (National Association of Realtors)
Why better video?Video is the most effective way to share your message and help your brand reach its potential. You can easily share video online through social media, email, text, ads, and reach thousands of people with your message with a click of a button. Here are some significant video marketing statistics: "Social video generates 1200% more shares than text and images combined." "Content marketing rakes in conversion rates six times higher than other methods." "The average user spends 88% more time on a website with video." This particular below video was able to help the seller agent get two more seller listings in the neighborhood because it was such a unique piece of marketing. We can help you create engaging, awe-inspiring content that converts your audience into true-fans and more business.
Why 3D Matterport?A major benefit of 3D Matterport in the Seattle area is to be able to show the home thoroughly to people out-of-town, out-of-state, and international buyers. The average 3D Matterport tour we produce gets 300+ impressions and 100-200 unique visitors within a month of publishing. Another benefit of 3D is to help you better qualify and disqualify buyers so you aren't wasting your time or theirs in travel. Instead, you can focus on helping each buyer find their ideal home even if it's not yours. And the last significant benefit for using 3D Matterport is to stand out with your marketing as an agent, be an agent who uses the latest marketing technologies and ultimately win more listings.
