Relocating to a New Market

Hello all you RTV providers out there. Have any of you ever moved to a new market and had to start all over again?? Well we did! We recently moved our virtual tour business from Northern Illinois to Corinth Mississippi. New to town and new to the existing markets, we needed a new sales approach. Cold-calling had always been beneficial for us, so we began to look at markets that would benefit by adding a virtual tour to their existing web sites.

The two niches we are currently working on have had great success: furniture stores (with large show rooms) and churches. (See Oakland Baptist Church)

We have emailed our tours to “competing” stores/churches so that they are aware of what others are doing to enhance their web sites!

We joined (free) Merchant Circle; this marketing has allowed our company name/web site to list at or near the top of a search for Corinth Virtual Tours and Tupelo Virtual Tours. (Oh, and we blogged on the RTV blog too which REALLY helps for recognition by the search engine.)

Next project–try to improve upon our facebook page.
