About RTV Virtual Tour Hosting

RTV has the finest virtual tour hosting in the industry. We’re very proud to tout that we’ve experienced 100% uptime for the last eight years. Other companies might tell you that they have 97%-99% uptime but when you do the math on that you will quickly realize they’re telling you that they go down for three to four hours a month. Can you really afford that?

When you’re researching out virtual tour hosting companies make sure you use valuable online tools such as Compete.com to see who you’re dealing with.

How does virtual tour hosting work?
When an RTV user publishes a virtual tour to our hosting facility in Dallas, TX (Rack Space) a virtual tour URL link is instantly created. The virtual tour hosting center automatically adds in dynamic keywords, meta tags, title and description so your hosted virtual tour will rank naturally in the search engines.

The virtual tour servers then automatically customize your virtual tour for you by adding in features such as google map, agent / owner information, hit traffic analytics, download tour, iPad – iPhone tour, and so much more.

Your virtual tour may be hosted on our virtual tour facility forever and alternatively you may elect to host your virtual tour on your own servers. Either way it starts by pushing your tour up to our facility and paying a small fee of $10.00 for the use of the infrastructure. All hosted real estate virtual tour remain on our virtual tour servers forever for the small cost of only $10.00.

Virtual Tour Hosting Testimonial:

Dear Sharon,

I’m considering starting up a virtual tour business.  What can you tell me about RTV Virtual Tour Hosting?

Thanks for your reply,

Randy

Hi Randy,

I started with RTV 3 years ago this spring.  I bought the 200 tour package because I knew I would use them eventually.  I was buying my second 200 tour package in about 8 months.  I think I’ve bought a couple more 200 pkgs since then, not sure how many exactly.  It’s a lot easier now because you don’t have to purchase that many to get the $10.00 rate.  In fact after you do 120 tours you don’t have to purchase tours in bundles at all.  As far as the virtual tours go they are very well received by realtors because they are THAT MUCH BETTER than the competition especially now with the HD Full-screen capability.

When I was looking for a company to go with, I went online looking for a quality product.  RTV Virtual Tour Hosting had what I wanted and so much more.  I never expected their support to be so awesome!  Believe me, in the beginning I was calling “support” every day, several times a day for help.  I’m sure they thought I would never last but I was determined to learn the virtual tour system and do the type of quality virtual tours I knew I could.  The learning process took about 2 weeks.

Probably what impresses me the most is their loyalty.  I can’t count the times that Jason LaVanture has turned away interested people who wanted to start a virtual tour company in my area.  Jason would even call me if the person was wanting to start a providership anywhere in Missouri or Arkansas to make sure it wouldn’t be infringing on my territory.  I think the “loyalty” issue is one of the things I most respect and appreciate about RTV Virtual Tour Hosting.  I was a provider for another virtual tour company before RTV Virtual Tour Hosting and they did not show me that kind of loyalty which is the reason I went “shopping” for another virtual tour company in the first place (and took all my Springfield virtual tours and clients with me!)

Getting started . . .
I started part-time basically.  I had one “big-hitter” realtor and was doing all of her virtual tours on her high-end listings.  Other agents would see her virtual tours and want tours just like “Ethel’s”.  It just built from there.  I now have several “big-hitters” and lots of “little-hitters” and full-time work during most of the year.  In fact, my husband also helps with the virtual tour photography and my daughter-in-law helps with the stitching.  It may start out a little slow, Randy, but it will snowball if you hang in there.

In my market here in southwest Missouri, I have to be competitive with my pricing.  I only charge $75 for a basic tour, so, after the $10 I pay RTV Virtual Tour Hosting for the tour hosting, I net $65 per tour.  I’m doing roughly 10-15 per week, so netting $650 to $975 per week.  In your market, you may have no problem netting $90-100 per virtual tour (maybe more).  Our selling season slows down considerably from November–February, then it takes off again.  At that time I’m lucky to have 2 tours a week.  Just being honest.

Please feel free to call me later this week if you have any other questions.  I wouldn’t hesitate too long though.  You definitely want to grab your territory while its available.  Going with RTV Virtual Tour Hosting was the best decision I could have ever made!
