360realhometours is enjoying our 8th year as a Belmar virtual tour provider. I tell you things just keep getting better all the time. I love you RTV for making so many enhancements to the virtual tour software this year. I love that I’m able to keep a high level of excitement about my virtual tour company. Hey, does the market suck out there, yeah it does but stick to your business plan and work on getting referrals and the order will keep on coming in. Remember what Jerry said on the show!
In this tight market with all the competition you must make certain your virtual tour images are impeccable and you WILL get the referrals. Every other day I’ll get a phone call or email and I’m always pleasantly surprised when it is a new realtor or agent and when I ask them how they heard of me it is ALWAYS from another agent. RTV’s superior product with your skills as a photographer (Maybe a little ShutterBot?) combined with solid customer relations WILL bring in the virtual tour business even in a down economy. Offer your customers the very best virtual tour product/service you can deliver and the referrals will come.
If you receive a referral do not forget to send a quick “thank you” email to the agent sending that virtual tour business your way. Stay in touch with all your customers anyway you can. Send quick brief update emails and include anyone you’ve done a virtual tour for. As RTV providers we have a ton of great extra products that can be sent to your customers as updates on a regular basis. Use these as methods of staying in touch. If you are in a particular area or region of your state on certain days send an email letting that customer know you will be in their area in case they need a virtual tour.
I’ve obtained quick VT business that way and it is a show of good customer relations and will always get a thank you back from the realtor. Very best luck out there…back to creating more virtual tours!
