Hello RTV fans, family, and virtual tour company owners! Happy Holidays to you all! We’re very excited about two new RPM marketing pieces that we’ve worked diligently on over the last few weeks. We think you’ll love the professional look and feel as well as the message they have on them. These pieces are 95% done for you and ready for you to get your marketing on.
The first piece is a very nice 6 x 4 holiday postcard that you can use just in time for the holiday season. This double sided postcard is ready for you and all images are royalty free courtesy of team BlueLaVaMedia. We encourage you to use your own images if you like and of course you’ll need Photoshop to edit the files so you can customize with your personal virtual tour company information, logo, images or other. Since 2007 BlueLaVaMedia has sent out holiday cards to our entire customer base. It’s something that you should do too if you’re a good marketer looking for continued success.
Our second piece this month is none other than a Zillow Certified Photographer piece. It’s a very attractive looking double sided flyer compiled nicely with royalty free images for you to use and we’ve taken Zillow’s power point presentation and added most of the agent benefits to this piece. We think you’ll love the look and feel as well as the message. This piece is also done using Photoshop and you’ll need just a few minutes of your time to customize before you send to print. For those of you that are not yet Zillow Certified please feel free to reach out to RTV directly and we’ll point you in the right direction if you qualify for the program.
Happy Holidays everyone! To snag these two new pieces please login to your www.RockPointeMarketing.com account today. Happy marketing team.

Having great photography is important, and you should be working on improving your image quality all the time, but that’s not the only thing that determines whether or not you will have a great business.
In fact, two of the biggest impacts upon your success as a real estate photographer are pricing and marketing.
On Tuesday October 25th we will be joined by Darryl Stringer, an 18 year veteran of real estate and architectural photography (and creator and founder of The Real Estate Photography System), who will be making a presentation called “Pricing and Marketing Essentials For Your Business.”
During this webinar you’ll learn:
– Four reasons not to compete on price – after all, you don’t want to win the race to the bottom
– How to calculate your fees so you know you’re charging enough for your services and reaching your daily targets, and how a small price rise can make a big difference
– The difference between being busy and being profitable
– The one big idea you can learn from Olympic athletes
– How to charge more for your photography
– Objective criteria that you can use so you know when you should, and should not, be outsourcing your photo editing
– What all photographers should aim for when it comes to promoting their business
– Five marketing ideas that will help you get more clients
– How to transform your business into a profit making machine
You’ll also be provided with multiple PDF worksheets to download, so this will be a very practical session, and something you definitely don’t want to miss.
RTV is very excited to welcome Darryl to the Through The Lens Microphone and hope that you can join us.

As a professional photographer and virtual tour provider you know the value of photography. Even Realtor.com in recent years has published articles clearly showing statistics proving that professionally photographed homes sell quicker and for more money. The issue photographers face far too often is that unless agents and homeowners see professional and amateur photos side by side, they don’t understand the difference. Many agents are under the impression that their cell phones and low cost point and shoot cameras are just as good as a professional camera in the hands of a professional photographer. It is up you the business owner, entrepreneur and professional photographer to convince them otherwise. The ability to effectively prove this point to multiple customers is too often the difference between a successful real estate photography business and a hobby that trickles in money here and there.
This month’s new RPM marketing piece addresses this issue head on With clear examples of professional quality photos and armature cell phone quality photos on the same piece, realtors will be able to see the difference and gain a new respect for the value that your photography service provides.
This marketing piece, available to RockPointe Marketing subscribers, is a printable, high-resolution double sided piece with examples of amateur and professional photos taken of the same property. It is presented in a Photoshop file allowing for complete customization to match your business’ colors and branding. This piece uses proper 1/8th inch bleed areas to allow printing to the edges, for a more professional looking flier.
