Interactive Virtual Media In Demand

We live in a world where styles change constantly and fresh images and interactive virtual media are always in demand. Professionals in every field, especially on the web, must be aware of these changes and possess the flexibility and imagination to stay ahead of the trends.

The new rules of internet marketing are moving away from traditional monologue and making interactive virtual media a MUST. The central goal of online marketing is ENGAGEMENT. This means getting your customer or potential client involved with your company, your products, and even your people. When customers like what they see this creates a virtual relationship between your company and the customer right there on the Web. It hooks them in and encourages the most qualified clients, and serious inquiries to reach out to your company.

UP N CLOSE can help your company leverage the depth and interactivity of the Web to create a memorable relationship with the customer that is available to them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Developing technologies are continuing to change the way we all live and work. Now more than ever, we are able to work and live more time efficiently than ever imagined. Online marketers are turning to Internet driven technologies to reach out to more potential buyers in less time and with minimal effort. The Internet is being used to find out about everything – including housing, travel, dining, recreation, and so much more.

Well-constructed, easily navigable, content-driven web sites provide users with the information they seek, create brand awareness and establish credibility. Now, with faster processors and higher bandwidths, Internet surfers are enjoying multimedia experiences including virtual tours, pictures, videos, and sound all helping to enhance the shopping experience.

The advent of virtual tours has allowed online marketers to implement highly effective pre-sales programs that are increasing sales capture rates and reducing sales cycles.

What a Virtual Tour Should Be

What is a Virtual Tour…or Rather What Should It Be?

Both of my parents are tour guides in BC.  BC is among the tourism capitals of the world so perhaps it is there that I get my idea of what a “tour” should be.  At Magnolia Plantation, it was my mother’s job to guide visitors through the home showing them from room to room and educating them about the history and features of the stately plantation house.  Pretty much what you might expect if you paid to get a “tour”. 

If you did an online search for the words “Virtual Tour”, you would find that there are many different ideas of what a virtual tour is.  So called tours range anywhere from a series of still photographs put to music to a full fledged video walk through of the house.  The still photographs are somewhat like trying to put a jigsaw puzzle together – you can see the pieces but are not exactly sure how they fit together.  The videos are reminiscent of watching someone’s home movies — you have no control over the viewing experience and they may not focus on what you want to see and they are certainly not an Interactive Virtual Tour.

At our assisted care photography company,  we feel that a virtual tour should provide the viewer as close to an actual tour as possible.  Here are some ways we accomplish that goal:

•    Interactive Panoramic Images – We provide 360º panoramic images which allow the viewer to visualize the details of the main rooms.  The viewer controls the speed and can zoom in to see specific features of the area.
•    Customized Hot Spots – Each image has embedded “hot spots” which allows the viewer to navigate from room to room.  This allows for a real feel of the layout and flow of the property.
•    Offline Tour Capabilities – It is our hope that after touring your property, the viewer will not want to look any further.  Truth of the matter is that an internet shopper is likely going to create a “short list” of prospective places to go back to later.  Your virtual tour can be downloaded as well as emailed which will keep your property top-of-mind when it comes time to make a decision.
•    Professional Virtual Tour Photography – We have over 10 years of professional photography experience so our eye for detail will allow us to provide you the best possible images to showcase your home.  Image editing and enhancements are included at no charge!

In this challenging market, the proper presentation of listings has become increasingly important.  With 85% of home shoppers turning to the internet before they pick up the phone, it is vital that you maximize your window of opportunity to grab their interest.

Northwest Arkansas Virtual Tour Company Offers Services to Habitat for Humanity

Brick Road Visuals, your Bentonville/Rogers Arkansas full service virtual tour provider, has volunteered to shoot a 360 interactive virtual tour in Arkansas for our local Habitat for Humanity. We have always really admired and appreciated the hard work the Habitat for Humanity does and the impact they have on the lives they touch. We wanted to pitch in, and this seemed like a great way for us to help.

Our local Habitat for Humanity has been plugging away helping family after family have a home of their own. There are children who now know they have a warm, comfortable, safe place to live. They’ve seen the completion of many great projects, improved the lives of deserving families and volunteers alike, and made their unique mark on our landscape all in the name of community.

It’s with that same heart for community that we have offered our services. We want as many people as possible to know what the Habitat for Humanity is doing and be inspired by their great achievements. The same way viewers love to see nearly-real virtual tours in Bentonville Arkansas of active real estate listings they will enjoy a virtual tour of the accomplishments of Habitat for Humanity. We know that with exciting technologies like interactive virtual tours and bright, crisp professional images the Benton County Habitat for Humanity chapter will receive more website traffic and enthusiasm which will lead to more awareness. More awareness will lead to more volunteers and more successful completions. We are honored to be able to contribute to the work of such a great organization in this way.
