Using our system someone can easily start their own virtual tour company or real estate agents can make their own full screen virtual tours. Before deciding to start a virtual tour business we recommend learning about the tour industry. Contact an RTV sales representative for information on how we compare to other companies in the industry.

Every month our virtual tour providers have the opportunity to attend webinars to help them improve their photography and business skills. Our Image photography webinar is always well attended because we give out great camera advice. We want our photographers to constantly fine tune their skills.

Our virtual tours are created online using stitched images taken by the photographer. Each 360 panoramic image comprises 12 separate shots stitched into one panorama. Partial panoramas and still images can also be used in our fullscreen flash tours. Our virtual tours autoplay but are fully interactive and can be controlled with keyboard or mouse. The V-Tours support audio clips and the virtual tour provider can attach various files such as brochures, floorplans, etc. Besides our beautiful V-Tours our photographers can also create fullscreen V-Slide slideshows. The slideshow supports still and panoramic images and is played fullscreen. Real estate agents have the choice of using a virtual tour provider in their local area or to create their own virtual tours or slideshows. Last year I took part in the RTV SEO workshop for Inner Circle marketing members. The boost in Google rank as a result of my training paid off in a big way this summer when a leading Gatlinburg TN cabin rental and real estate company called me for a quote on creating online marketing photography and virtual tours for some of their cabin owners. It’s unlikely they would have found my Middle Tennessee virtual tour company otherwise. After some negotiations, my wife and I ended up staying four nights in a nice log cabin at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. She got some much needed quiet time in a Jacuzzi and watching and reading the Twilight series, while I had the unique opportunity of photographing some awesome real estate. These properties are some of those places where I probably would never have visited were it not for being an RTV provider offering a great virtual tour marketing system. Before the adventure was over, my wife had enough of solitude and she decided to assist me on the last couple of days of shooting. She now has a new respect for what it takes to create a good-looking virtual tour. I was also exhausted but exhilarated at the end of each day. Best of all we got to spend some time together. In the “remember to always be prepared” department I have a story. One of the Gatlinburg cabins I photographed was basically at the highest point and farthest from the main highway as you could get on the resort. When we went in, somebody (I still say it wasn’t me!) left our vehicle’s ignition in the accessory position. You guessed it! The battery was completely dead when we started to leave. Of course we had no jumper cables, but what would we do with them if we had them? Luckily there was life in the next cabin down the road and they called the resort security who responded quickly to our plight. I didn’t take any chances. I left the van running until we reached an auto parts store and had the battery checked out. It was of course dead, so there went some of our profits. Yes, we came home with cash even after staying four nights in a great mountain getaway and buying a new battery. That’s what I call a great business! Since then I’ve been back to the mountains once by myself and once where we were able to bring along another couple and their kids because the cabins I was shooting were four-bedroom lodges. Talk about having a great time! Again, this great summer was brought to you by RTV. Brett Weaver Photographer
