Example:  Video Marketing That Works

OceanFront One Bedroom Villa in St. Lucia are not too common in the Caribbean – Typically villas rent well for families and are more expensive that a hotel room for a single or double occupancy.Mostly holiday villa accommodations work for groups and large families.

Having a small one bedroom unit  close to the water and in a resort complex with amenities like a pool, gardens and a great ocean-view terrace above the cove, available to rent at a reasonable price is quite rare.  Pointing all this out in the video helps get the message across.
