What is Inner-Circle membership?

While all RTV providers have access to our Business Resource Center, RTV Inner-Circle membership takes it several steps further.

The RTV Business Resource Center (BRC) is one of the many things that separate RTV providers from the competition. As an RTV provider, you are never alone when it comes to starting, growing, and marketing your business. The BRC was created to help you establish your business correctly the FIRST time. Based on almost 10 years of industry experience, the BRC is your free business road-map. At RTV we believe that our success is wholly dependent upon your success as a small business owner, so in 2008 we acquired Rock Pointe Marketing to focus our business development and marketing programs on you.

Inner-Circle membership is an optional upgrade available to all RTV providers. Inner-Circle membership entitles you to advanced virtual tour marketing programs, authoritative webinars, done-for-you customer newsletters, immense interactive PowerPoint presentations, Industry Research, and fresh marketing materials every month. As an Inner-Circle member you will also have access to a multitude of business resources to help you to put your business on the fast-track to success.

While RTV Inner-Circle virtual tour marketing membership is an optional service, we highly encourage you to join. The price of annual membership is an absolute bargain when compared to the amount of money that you would invest in hiring an outside marketing firm to market your business for just one month. Just visit your the RTV RPM Marketing Center and upgrade your membership today!

Virtual Tour Webinar Reviews

On Wednesday December 17th RTV providers joined together again to listen to another amazing webinar with special guest Alan Fon of Island Digital Images. During the webinar we discussed many of the strategies that Alan has used to take his Texas virtual tour business past the 200 tour-per-month mark several times over.

Here are some of the responses we received:

Again, you and your team have exceeded all expectations. At the rate you are going, we will all be quitting soon, to enjoy a beach somewhere in the sun. Thanks again for all your efforts, the webinars are absolutely a “must attend” for anyone serious about our business of Virtual Tours. ~ Mike

Thanks for putting together such an informative webinar. I learned a lot and will be looking forward to the next one! – Sue

I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you! Every time I listen in to one of these webinars I learn how much more I could be doing with my virtual tour business. There are just so many good ideas to start implementing. I can’t wait to see how much this is going to increase my bottom line. – Danny

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.

Do You Continually Market Your Virtual Tours?

Today most of us constantly hear about how bad the real estate market is, and what do you know, sure enough, it gets bad! I’m a big believer in “thoughts are things”, meaning that what you think about is what you get. So, are you thinking bad market, or are you thinking there’s a great opportunity out there?

If you’re thinking opportunity, and I sure hope you are, then what are you doing about it? Sitting around griping about the economy, or reading what the media has to say about it is a quick path to failure. Start looking for that opportunity, and keep letting people know you are in business. Keep your language positive, no one likes to hear from someone that is negative. Be up, and make sure your marketing is the same way. Through the process of marketing, a continual exercise for successful businesses, you will discover opportunity, and ways to get to it.

Do you really think that realtors are your only virtual tour business? With the market the way it is, more and more owners are trying to rent properties. Have you thought about ways to help these people reach their rental market? Don’t the stats say that rentals happen faster with Virtual Tours? Have you investigated large rental firms in your area? What about commercial properties for rent?

Would you suspect that RV providers are looking for more effective and less costly methods of advertising their products? How about car providers? Have you noticed that car providerships are advertising far less in newspapers these days, as are realtors, yet how are they reaching their market? You have possible solutions for them, have you approached anyone lately?

Team RTV suggested some time back that you look into Send Out Cards. Have you? We have begun using that system extensively, and boy, is it effective. Just design yourself a series of post cards with your design program (we use Photoshop), and do constant mailings. When we complete a Northern Illinois Virtual Tour, we simply send out a postcard that we designed to the realtor, buyer and seller.

Want to approach a new market? Shoot a sample, make up your marketing campaign, and start sending out information and graphic representations of what you have in mind. Using Send Out Cards, it’s quick, simple and directed right to the market you are trying to break into. Customize your efforts, and you will be recognized as the company with solutions. We even offer ad campaigns to our customers. We can do many, or even one at a time for them.

Stay away from the nay-sayers. Keep your mind positive, and above all, keep it open to new ideas. Get involved in the fantastic virtual tour marketing program that Team RTV is providing us. If we all share our ideas, our RTV businesses can do nothing but grow, even in a tight economy. If you believe in your product, you can make believers out of potential customers, and the economy will not be a factor of your success!

Virtual Tour Company Search Engine Optimization

I have been reading what others have to say about SEO. I have seen where people say that they don’t think that Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is important. As a Charlotte Virtual Tour Provider I wanted to make sure that my company was listed at the top of the search engines if a real estate professional searched for service provider in my area.

I needed internet exposure for my new virtual tour company in Charlotte North Carolina. Since my website was brand new, I was coming up all the way back on page 9 in Google when performed a search for my company. I was pretty much nowhere to be found. I asked Team RTV (RTV’s provider Marketing Department) for some help. They responded very quickly.

Following the RTV plan, I started working on my site’s optimization that same Sunday afternoon. By the following Saturday, my site was appearing on the first page of Google results. Now, thanks to my blogs in Active Rain, and a little effort on my part, my site now shows at the top of the first page in Google for many key words. In addition, there are multiple references to my site for other keywords and searches through my Active Rain blogs and my Active Rain profile throughout the search engine results pages.

It feels good knowing that when potential customers search, they will find my company, Look Charlotte. I think it lends a certain amount of credibility to my virtual tour company when someone searches for a virtual tour provider and finds me at the top of the first page of the results.

Now is SEO important? I think you could make an argument both ways. I am just proud to be found in the search results when someone searches for my Charlotte NC virtual tour company.

Thanks Team RTV!!
