As a Bossier City Louisiana area Virtual Tour Company, Ark-La-Tex Virtual Tours is constantly finding new ways to augment our virtual tour business. One area which we have expanded into is website design. A couple of years ago one of our customers asked us if we knew any web designers in our area. We recommended a company who we thought was the best in the Shreveport area. The following week she asked if we knew anybody else. Shocked we asked why. She said they were out of her price range. She asked if we could build her a website. Thus began the website design division of Ark-La-Tex Virtual Tours.

We found that once our Realtors started using virtual tours, they realized the power of the internet for marketing and wanted a customized website that fulfilled their vision and marketing needs. The virtual tours and the website together, became a powerful tool for Realtors to reach a market that extends well beyond the reach of their Sunday paper.

Our dynamic websites are very user friendly and database driven. This means the customer only has to log into their secure section of the website and fill out forms and the information populates everywhere throughout the site. The customer does not have to be a web designer to update information on their website. We strive to make our websites as enjoyable and easy to use as Real Tour Vision has succeeded in making virtual tours fun and easy to use.

The Virtual Tour Is Your Property’s Home On The Web

Did you know that 85% of today’s buyers start their search online and that the average age of today’s buyer is in their 30’s? Do you think those buyers are starting their real estate searches in the newspaper? Absolutely not. Today’s buyers turn to the Internet first.
Why RealVisionStudio

Thought you’d never ask!

We realize that the success of your real estate business, like all businesses, is based on:

    Lead Generation (getting sellers to call you)
    Lead Conversion (getting sellers to list with you)
    Client Retention (having clients list with you again and refer you)

Having a top-notch online presence maximizes each of these critical facets of your business.

That’s where RealVisionStudio comes in.
The Basics: Professional Real Estate Photography
Our photos make potential buyers stop, click and call you for a showing. The virtual tour and photo viewers we use are informational, but get out of the way to put your property front and center. Plugging in professional photography to your online presence attracts more buyers AND sellers to you. (Lead Generation)
Free Marketing Materials
Use our free marketing materials to help you explain this new service you’re offering to your clients and why it’s beneficial to them. Get more listings! (Lead Conversion)
Keep in touch with your clients automatically.
You get weekly reports for each of your tours via email. Choose to forward them to your clients manually for a personal touch, or have them sent directly to your client. Either way they get proof that your online marketing is getting the job done. (Client Retention)
Maximum Virtual Tour Exposure With Our Optional Marketing Package
Your new virtual tours won’t work if they are not seen. Our Exposure Engine marketing package will syndicate your tour link through all the major internet real estate marketing channels and make your tour ‘iPad ready’. The weekly tour traffic reports will prove the value of this service.
Match your online image to your offline image
Don’t let over-exposed windows, crooked walls and poorly designed tour viewers detract from the offline image you’ve spent lots of time and money to develop. If you’d rather stick to what you’re good at (being a top-notch Realtor) we’ll be glad to take care of the boring stuff (making great photos and studying internet marketing for real estate) so you don’t have to.

Thank You

As a Real Tour Vision virtual tour provider in Ramona, CA I have voluntarily entered myself into the weekend marathon and I couldn’t be happier. I e-mail agents about my services, I call agents about specific properties that I think would be great for a virtual tour and all do this earlier in the day.

Next, I head out and do the open house portion of the marathon. I meet face to face with the
Realtors and walk through the house with them explaining which rooms and angles I would like to shoot. I explain how my virtual tours differ from other providers, or I explain how a virtual tour works if they don’t know.

I always bring my equipment, because you just never know when your going to need it. I head home and check my e-mail and wait for the calls to start rolling in!

On Maui, the Valley Isle, internet marketing is crucial to the success of all Realtors (r). Living on Maui presents challenges in the real estate market, and the Realtors on this small island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean know just how important it is to market their listings on the internet. They realize that virtual real estate tours are truly the 7/24 open house and the best way to show mainland buyers their properties.

Buyers on the mainland spend a lot of time researching properties so that they can utilize their time to the max while on Maui. Many of them choose their Realtor based on the information they have researched on the internet. And so it goes – the internet is an important marketing tool, especially to the Realtors on the remote islands of Hawaii.

At a recent meeting of Realtors, one of my clients came up to me and told me an interesting story. He said that he was holding an open house at his latest listing and in walked a couple from the mainland. He offered to show them the house, but they politely explained that they would just explore on their own. They proceeded to walk through the home, making comments like “down the hall is the master bedroom”, and “downstairs are the rest of the bedrooms.” My client was amazed that they knew so much about a home that they had never been in. He talked with them for a while after they had seen the home and they explained to him that they had seen the house on the internet, liked it, and noted that it was one that they didn’t want to miss while on Maui. Then they told him that they “liked his Virtual Tour.” He was amazed!

When he finished relating this story to me he told me that he felt like a “Virtual Realtor.” Even though he is a repeat client, with my photos and virtual tours on many of his listings, I think that this experience really made him understand the importance of a virtual tour. He now says that he doesn’t understand why any Realtor would list a home and not hire a professional to do the photos and virtual tour.

Oh – – – did the couple buy the home? No, but my client now has this couple as his clients. Another reason to hire a professional virtual tour company – excellent photos and virtual tours draw the attention of the buyers.

Thank you RTV for having the best virtual tour software. I am proud to be part of your family.
