Hello RTV fans! As many of you already know, computer generated voice over narration is a great up-sell opportunity for your virtual tour productions or at the very least a wonderful way to differentiate you from your competition. Clients love the ability to choose from scene level, as well as tour level narration to add interest and personalization to their virtual tour presentations.
We are happy to announce the AudioPal computer generated voice over narration system has been updated. There are now 25 English voices with several accent choices, as well as many multi-language options. You will no longer be limited to 5 voices only in English! We have chosen Laura as the default option and we believe you will agree she is a great choice for virtual tours of all types.
Earlier this year Amazon acquired our former AudioPal technology partner and implemented new pricing that was several times higher than before. We were also unable to continue creating audio files the way we had programmed the system to do so. A change in providers was required and we were forced to seek out an alternate solution. We believe that the combination of offering many more voice options as well as keeping rates low for AudioPal subscribers will make this tour add on a much better value for our customers. We sincerely hope that you feel the same way! Please take a moment now to check out this virtual tour with several of the new AudioPal voices in it. Let us know who you like best and feel free to skip through the voices within the tour http://fusion.realtourvision.com/143288
If you don’t currently have an AudioPal subscription and would like to try it please go ahead now and give it a whirl. RTV will be honoring any AND ALL AudioPal trial requests that come in throughout the month of April, even if you’ve had a trial before.

Lightroom is one of the most powerful tools in a virtual tour photographer's bag of tricks. The question is are you getting the most out of Lightroom?

We can't speak highly enough about Beth's photo editing skills. Her title is well earned, and she is a wealth of knowledge.

This month’s Virtual Tour Marketing piece was contributed by Mike Stolte a fellow RTV virtual tour provider from the Houston, TX market. Mike Stolte attended The FORMULA 75 and was blown away by a potential new income stream that had been right in front of him for years and had gone unnoticed.
After watching the show, Mike created this unique single sided flyer that any RTV provider can easily use to assist with selling ads on tours. Fusion’s powerful affiliate ad marketing engine is capable of displaying several ads on your virtual tours in the lower left corner, and rotating them at any desired time interval. The images are clickable and take tour visitors directly to the advertisers website. Your paying advertisers will know that they’re getting visits, clicks, impressions and eyeballs on their ads the Fusion Affiliate Marketing system will send out a nice report that is similar to a virtual tour traffic report every week to advertisers showing how well their ads are performing.
We recommend that every RTV tour provider minimally advertise their photography business on their virtual tours and this practice is discussed heavily during the show. On the show, we also talk about recommended advertisers as well as potential sales scenarios.
We encourage that you watch The FORMULA 75 before attempting to sell ads on your tours and utilize this marketing piece.
As part of a continued effort to create the highest quality marketing pieces, we have created this in Adobe Photoshop, utilizing layers. This allows greater flexibility for the photographer. All of the flier colors, information and photos are completely customizable using a program that almost all photographers currently use.
Thanks for your support!
