RTV Launches High Definition AstroZoom!

RTV virtual tour software and hosting company now offers 720p HD video during virtual tour playback! This means your full motion videos and AstroZooms will look even better while being displayed in a high resolution widescreen format.

Due to this change in our system, the AstroZoom service charge has been increased to the new base rate of $9.99 per video production order.
This is to help pay for the additional storage that the high definition videos will use and of course the longer video processing time. As always we deliver the best products and virtual tour experience to everyone who is involved with us here at RTV. Thank you for your continued support!

AstroZooms, Hair Salons and Reciprocity

Tour Tank Productions

A while back I took an extensive marketing course presented by some of the worlds greatest and most successful marketers.

I would like to share a golden nugget with the RTV virtual tour company team, that if applied, will help your businesses in a big big way!

As of recently all of my Owen Sound Virtual Tours have been ordered with the AstroZoom feature.  That’s right, ALL of them!  If an agent never had one before, and hasn’t requested it, I simply tell them that I am going to give them a complimentary ‘AstroZoom’ feature on their 360 tour.  I tell them it’s an incredible feature that will make their listing stand out above the rest. 

A $9 sacrifice that will begin to bear fruit immediately, here’s 3 reasons how:

1.  Reciprocity:  Reciprocity in social psychology refers to responding to a positive action with another positive action, rewarding kind actions.  When you give something extra to your customer, you can EXPECT to receive something extra! 

A positive first impression, a great review, and of course an AstroZoom order on subsequent virtual tours.  Who would like to make an additional $11 on a tour for clicking a button?

2.  Hair Salons:  Have you ever had your hair shampooed at a hair salon?  It’s not about getting your hair washed; It’s about getting a head massage that feels so incredible!  The problem is, most people sit in a salon chair and will never experience that invigorating massage because they ‘washed’ their hair before they went to the salon!

While I’m getting that wonderful massage all over my head by the stylist, I plainly tell them,  You ought to wash EVERYBODY’S head that walks through that door for a hair cut.  IF they have never had a wash, how will they ever know the experience.  $0.50 of shampoo and 5 minutes of time to potentially earn an extra $5-$10 on all subsequent visits.  Worth it?  I do think so!

If they don’t ask for the Koolaid, just feed it to them!

If you don’t want to lose too much money you can say:  Shampoo’s today are only $1, OR would you like to have an Incredible AstroZoom added to your tour for only $5, a feature that regularly cost $20?

3.  Monkey See, Monkey Do:  When customers visit your website and ‘SEE’ all of your virtual tours with AstroZooms, you will easily be able to sell them the feature! 

It’ll sound something like this on the shoot day:  You: ‘Hey, did you see one of my virtual tours with the AstroZoom on it?’  Customer:  ‘Yes!’  You:  ‘Pretty awesome eh?  Should I put one on your virtual tour, it’s a really really inexpensive feature, only 20 bucks’.  Customer: ‘YES YES YES!!! Put them on all my virtual tours and never ask again!!!’

Here’s a couple of samples if you haven’t seen the AstroZoom feature yet!

This post leads into my next one.  An important principle that most large corporations understand, and most small business don’t have a clue about… Stay Tuned!

Happy selling season!

Corpus Christi Virtual ToursAlan here from Virtual Digital Images. Today we are going to look at one of our unique virtual tour options, AstroZoom.

AstroZoom is great for our clients who are looking for a way to make their listing or business standout from the crowd.

AstroZoom is designed to grab attention by offering viewers something that they have never seen before. An outer space fly in!

These are three examples of virtual tours that include AstroZoom:

Near the Gulf


This powerful technology creates the visual experience of flying to your property. The planet image rotates to center your geographic location, and then the video zooms down toward the surface and through the atmosphere. The closer the view the more detailed the landscape until the camera focuses on your listing or business.

AstroZoom is a low cost alternative for aerial photography for many of our clients. AstroZoom is the perfect way to demonstrate the proximity of your property to other amenities such as The Gulf of Mexico, Lake Travis or to acres of trees and undeveloped land. Do you have a listing on a canal lot; AstroZoom will show that canal as well as the waterways that it joins. Do you have a listing near a lake or on acreage; AstroZoom highlights these special features like no other product can from within your interactive virtual tours.

AstroZoom is available on all of our Edge virtual tours. Give us a call today to order your virtual tour and real estate photography, and don’t forget to ask for AstroZoom by name.

Virtual Digital Images, providing high quality professional photography, virtual tours, and digital marketing from the Coastal Bend to the Hill Country.
