RTV Marketing Update

HD V-Slide Have Arrived and we couldn’t be more excited!  Look for these announcement postcards and a coordinating flyer to post very soon. We also updated and posted the In House provider InfoPack complete with current pricing for each of our new Business Bundles and a quick link table of contents.

 If you have an idea or a need for a specific marketing piece email and I will see what I can do.  Remember all of our marketing materials can be accessed through Rockpointe.

The Press, The Release and The Juice

When I first started up BlueLaVaMedia, a TC virtual tour company, I was always hearing from my customers and prospects, “I saw you in the paper.” or “I heard your ad.” If you’re not hearing people say this about your company, or have not heard this in quite some time, you need to change that.

In fact…it’s been way too long since my last Press Release which I did last summer when we released our BlueLaVaMedia TxT Connect System. As a virtual tour & property marketing company you need to constantly keep an air of excitement around you and your company. Watch the above video to see how simple it is for any RTV virtual tour provider to write and submit a press release. Also see how easy it was for us to push our competitor to page two of the serps. Check it out for yourself. Google “Traverse City Virtual Tours” now.

If you like this video be sure to let me know! I’ll keep them coming.

Have a great weekend everyone and don’t forget about our show next Tuesday.

New From RTV Marketing – Spring Splash

Virtual Tour Marketing Update:  April/May 2010

Postcards, catchy, to the point and effective.  People are inundated with numerous, emails, publications and work related documents to read.  These simple marketing postcards highlight the new HD virtual tours, the importance of being proactive and focusing on your community.  They require a minimal time requirement for the information to be conveyed and are eye catching.  This increases the chance that they will be read and remembered!

Landscaping services and gardening facilities are in full swing during the spring.  This two page flyer highlights the unique ability of virtual tours to showcase their stunning creations even during the bleak winter months. 

If you haven’t shared the exciting new technology of full screen high definition tours yet, then this is the flyer for you.  We are so excited to roll out this new technology and can already see it is transforming the virtual tour into an amazing experience.

Best wishes, Jill K. Sill

The IMAGE Testimonial

Dear RTV,

I was pleased to participate in the Webinar last night, the IMAGE, about lighting and framing. Ben Knorr was extremely helpful with his tips about lighting and looking for artistic framing of our shots. As a new RTV provider who has not done any Tour Track jobs, knowing settings of the camera that others use for these Hotel/Hospitality tours is very helpful. I enjoy learning something new from each of the webinars I listen to. I hope that my images quickly reflect that.

The Faststone Image viewer seems very helpful as well. What a great piece of software to get for free. I might need an entire webinar on how to use it. I think that RTV does a great job of keeping its providers educated. New technology and techniques are shared freely and that makes RTV a truly unique experience. Thanks for welcoming me into the RTV family.
