RTV Launches New & Improved RockPointe Marketing

If you have ever attended one of RTV’s live webinars, you know how much these shows can help you grow your business. You may also be aware, that those who subscribe to RockPointe Marketing have access to hundreds of past shows as well as a great selection of customizable marketing pieces that can be used to help promote their virtual tour business. While RockPointe Marketing was great, we wanted to make it even better!

The all-new is now live with a fresh new look and best of all, members now have the option to purchase individual shows and marketing pieces. If you would prefer to access ALL that RockPointe Marketing has to offer for one low cost, you can still subscribe for $400 per year.

Did we mention the generous offering of free webinars? That’s right, free webinars to help you get the most out of Fusion (our powerful virtual tour software), maximize your profits and get the competitive edge in your business. If you have heard about our new 3D VR Headset tours but didn’t catch the webinar,  you can watch it along with many other shows by registering for a free membership and visiting the complimentary webinar category.

Our paid webinars cover topics from traditional as well as internet marketing methods, photography techniques, post processing tips, and tricks, to gadget reviews and much more. There is a wealth of knowledge from Jason LaVanture, Jason Stringham, Ben Knorr, and many other industry experts that will help your photography, virtual tour and aerial drone business achieve the competitive advantage you need. We will be adding new webinars and marketing pieces as they become available, so be sure to check back often for the latest tips and tricks to help your business stand out from the crowd.

Those who had a paid subscription on the old RockPointe Marketing have already been transferred over and can continue to access all of the premium content. Monthly and quarterly subscriptions will no longer be available for purchase, but those currently using these plans will have access full access until their current subscription expires. These folks will be able to continue on as a pay per piece customer or can opt to purchase the yearly subscription and access all the webinars and marketing pieces they would like.

Those that had a complimentary membership on the old site or RTV photographers who would like a complimentary membership will need to visit and register for an account on the new platform. These free memberships will give full access to our entire library of complimentary webinars, and allow the user to purchase individual pay per piece items. Each membership request will be sent for approval by an RTV staff member to ensure that only approved RTV photographers have access.

If you haven’t watched the excellent 3 part video series in which Darryl Stringer shares some of what he has learned during his 30 years in the real estate photography industry, Beth Nixon’s hand blending exposures webinar that will take your image quality to the next level, or if you haven’t updated your marketing materials in a while, visit today and take advantage of great prices on individual shows and pieces.

Enjoy the updates!

107 Commercial Drone Endorsement – RTV Webinar Follow up

Hello RTV fans and family! We wanted to follow up with you after our webinar event last week. We have posted a recording of the show here  and will leave it posted there for a couple of weeks as an unlisted link for those of you who missed the live event.

If you would like to work on getting your 107 drone endorsement you can do so by visiting the following page –    I believe that Alan Perlman will be leaving the $50 off his course active for two more weeks for us so make sure you take advantage of that soon if you’re interested.

I do recommend that you watch the show above as we disclose a TON of information during the show that will be very helpful for you throughout the entire process.

Finally, I would highly recommend that you get on Alan’s dashboard / email list as he’s sending out weekly emails like the one I’ve pasted into this email to you below.  Some very helpful tips and tricks that are tailored specifically for drone operators of all skill sets are included. You can sign up for his emails here –

What I really liked about his email today was that it helps you get started VERY affordably. I mentioned during our last show that RTV has begun bidding on national accounts that include drone photography so WE REALLY WANT YOU ALL IN THE AIR ASAP!!   Make sense?

Thanks for your support and happy / safe flying everyone!



Virtual Tour Software & Property Marketing Tools

Alan’s email from earlier today –


If you’ve never flown a drone before, there’s a little secret I should let you in on.
You will crash.

There’s no avoiding it. Your hardware will fail. Your software might go wonky. You’ll run into a situation you’ve never encountered before.
It doesn’t matter how strong of a pilot you think you are.

One of these things will happen.

Aside from adopting a pilot mindset and taking the time to properly train, one thing you can do to save a little pride is to buy a cheaper, more affordable training drone.
None of these systems will break the bank, so they’re great for training.

These models also have some of the most advanced features in the sub-$150 price range.

Check out 17 of the best cheap training drones here –

Don’t forget to check out the list of specs and features below each one.

Blue skies and safe flying,

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!

Joins Us For Info On The Fusion Affiliate System On The Formula



So you’ve built up a very nice customer base of loyal and repeat buyers for your interactive virtual tours and media presentations…but now what? Now it’s time that you monetize your productions even further by selling ads off of your virtual tours.

As we look across your virtual tours, we have noticed that this practice seems to have become somewhat of a lost art. If you’re producing at least fifteen tours a month with your virtual tour business then it’s time to take a look at this unique opportunity and bring back sponsored Ads on tours.

Some of you are already using the Fusion Affiliate system to do this with your own logo during virtual tour playback. Check out a couple samples: here and here but sadly, most of you are not even using this valuable advertising space for yourself!

The time to monetize your online tours and all the views they’re getting is now. Be sure to sign up for this show if you would like to learn more about marketing yourself and others on your virtual tours. The time is now to start making extra money by selling Ads on your productions.

See you there November 10th, 2015 at 7:00pm

Register Here!

PS. If your company logo is not splashed across the virtual tour during playback, you’re missing out on VALUABLE marketing time that our powerful Affiliate Marketing Program in Fusion can be serving up for you! You might be afraid to put your logo as an affiliate on the tours due to MLS regulations? That’s not a problem. You can tell the system whether or not to display the affiliates on the NON-BRANDED tour. Before assuming that it’s not allowed, be sure to check with your local MLS board first. Many around the country are more than happy to help promote local photographers and technology providers. See you there RTV. – See more on our webinar information page.
