Think Win-Win

Thinking Win-Win as outlined in habit 4 of Stephen Covey’s book “The 7 Habits of Highly effective people is a Great strategy to employ while building and sustaining your Virtual Tour Company. At DragonFly 360 Imaging we always look for the opportunity to utilize this strategy, has indicated by a recent conversation with a new Client, JR Gnerich with RE/MAX Alliance of Albuquerque.

While photographing the first of many Albuquerque Virtual Tours for JR, he mentioned that he had a listing for a home by the nationally renowned architect, Bart Prince . Bart Prince, an Albuquerque based Architect known for unique architectural styles had designed this home to resemble an Airplane. JR has had this listing for a year and had utilized his own photos and was looking for an exceptional way to showcase it and wasn’t sure if a conventional Virtual Tour was the right way to go.  He was looking for a more dynamic presentation.

A nearby listing, which has since expired of a Geodesic Dome Home, the only one in Albuquerque, was photographed using HDR technology and he had inquired of the photographer, what it would cost to do the Bart Prince “Airplane House”. He was quoted $1100! This was just Photography not a 360 Virtual Tour.

Well, thinking win-win as I always like to do and wanting to keep this client I told JR that I had wanted to get into HDR photography but didn’t have the funds right now but if he was willing to advance me the cost of the technology, would do the house for that cost; considerably less then the previously quoted $1100 and it would include 360 Panoramas.  He went for it and I photographed it this past weekend. It can be seen here: http://rtvpix.com/RE-5342-8AGOQV-01 He then asked me to re-shoot that first listing in the HDR format. http://rtvpix.com/RE-3189-KLH815-01

Since then, he has recommended to me a homeowner whose house has languished on the market for 6 months with no activity and I received a lead from RTV for a Realtor looking to photograph 2 high-end homes. After sending him the links to conventional & HDR Tours, It’s looking like he’s going to go HDR

From the 7 Habits: Win-win sees life as a cooperative arena, not a competitive one. Win-win means agreements or solutions are mutually beneficial and satisfying. We both get to eat the pie and it tastes pretty darn good!
