The delivery truck has arrived and RTV's Do-It-Yourself virtual house staging just got a very nice overhaul with a full load of new digitized furniture for you to use to "Virtually Stage" your rooms! DIY virtual staging technology is gaining traction in the real estate industry as broker’s look to technology to win listings. Furniture companies are beginning to make 3D samples on their sites. They generally show 3-4 views of a piece of furniture. Companies that have the software to sample and complete the views can create a true 3D piece that can be rotated 360 degrees. Then lighting and shadows are added to give the furniture a realistic look.
What remains is the need for a platform that can straighten, calibrate rooms, position and rotate furniture within a picture. All this technical background on how virtual staging is just to give you a glimpse behind the scenes. Until recently the 3D models available on-line were limited sometimes to unrealistic looking furniture. That is all about to change!
Here at RTV, we will be adding 100’s of pieces of new digitized furniture over the next months to our powerful virtual staging software platform. We have already released many new pieces this week in several categories. Please let us know if there are specific categories or styles of furniture pieces that you would like to have added. As we are able to locate them from 3D online stores we will be adding them to the RTV Stager.
For those of you that don't have your virtual staging account opened up yet, or if you have not visited the site in awhile please take a moment now to check it out today!

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
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.
