Going Green Screen – Video 5 of the 2015 RTV Convention Series Now in RPM!

Virtual Tour Video Add On

Are you looking for new products you can add to your marketing repertoire? Green screen video is a great way to increase your service offering, and the best part is, you likely have most of the equipment to produce full HD video already. Realtors and business owners love the level of professionalism a custom video adds to their virtual tours, websites and social media profiles. Once the initial recording is done, the video clip can be superimposed over photos of any listing creating a repeating revenue opportunity for your business.

Meg Paxton and Josh Beechraft of BlueLaVaMedia join Derek Conrad in the fifth installment of the 2015 Virtual Tour Convention series, to discuss the equipment, software and techniques you will need to know to begin offering this unique service. Creating your own green screen videos is easier than you think. Meg and Josh share their experience in what works and what doesn’t work for creating these videos as well as how to maximize the profitability of this service.

The 2015 Convention series is part of a large library of recorded webinars covering photography techniques, equipment, marketing tools, and much more, available to Rockpointe Marketing subscribers. If you aren’t currently a member we highly suggest you consider joining. In addition to the webinars, you will also have access to powerful marketing pieces, presentations and much more that are completely customizable for your business. 

We hope you enjoy this webinar, and if you choose to offer green screen video your efforts will be handsomely rewarded. Keep your eyes out for our final video of the 2015 RTV Virtual Tour Provider Convention Series coming soon!

Sincerely,

The Lightroom Class From The 2015 Convention Series Is Now Available

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? 

Beth Nixon, RTV's Lead Digital Imaging Specialist taught this informative class at our 2015 virtual tour provider convention in Orlando, Florida. From the feedback, we have heard she did a great job. We can't speak highly enough about Beth's photo editing skills. Her title is well earned, and she is a wealth of knowledge.

We have recreated the class she taught at the virtual tour provider convention into this informative webinar available for all RTV RPM members. You will learn powerful ways to create collections and use keywords to help organize your files. She also shares her workflow as she works through the development module within Lightroom all the way to the finishing touches in Photoshop. There is something to learn from this class whether you are new to the Adobe photography suite or a long time user.

If you aren't a RPM member yet we hope you will consider joining. There are countless hours of classes covering professional photography, virtual tour photography, post processing to marketing and much more. You will also have access to a large collection of virtual tour related marketing materials you are welcome to download and customize for your own virtual tour business.

New From RPM – Virtual Tour Affiliate Marketing Flier

Virtual Tour Affiliate MarketingThis 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!

RTV's Tour Track national photography service had a banner 2015. We were able to assign hundreds of jobs to our photography network and 2016 is already off to a great start.

We are excited to announce there are some changes coming to how we will ask our photographers to complete and deliver their orders. Many of our photographers have already completed shoots using our new shoot & deliver method. If you haven't received one of these jobs yet, your next order will likely be a bit different than how you have operated before.

Our aim is to provide a more consistent quality and look to our national clients. As you know, if you give 100 photographers a subject to shoot you will get 100 different results. The same is true for post processing methods. 

Our new photography workflow will not only help us achieve a consistent product, but it will save our photographers a lot of time in post processing. Our hope is that our photographers will have more time to spend working on their own photography businesses as well as spending time with family.  In many cases they will be receiving higher payments for less work as well!

More pay for less work? Sign me up!

On Tuesday, March 1st at 7:00 pm we will be hosting a webinar to discuss all of the exciting new changes and what they mean to you. Whether you are a Tour Track veteran or have never picked up a photography job from RTV you will want to be sure to join us. You will learn how the new process works and if you haven't been a part of Tour Track you will learn how you can be assigned paid photography assignments as well.

Be sure to sign up right away. We look forward to seeing you there!
