Heard about PanoRiders?

Of course you have! So if you are one of the few providers who have not started offering these fantastic add-on products to your list of offerings, you are missing out!

Missing out on what? ADDITIONAL REVENUE of course. This product simply sells itself. For a modest fee, your clients can add significant traffic to their virtual tour. And that benefits YOU as a provider. It shows the agent just how effectively your service can market their listing.

With the current housing situation in most of the country, most real estate agents are cutting back on their marketing expenses. But this means they have to invest more time to sell a property. Why not introduce them to the PanoRider with single property website? Demonstrate how these unique marketing tools can save them time and make them more money in the process.

Show them the statistics like these from an order from AT Virtual Tours in San Angelo, TX where about 1/3 of the traffic to this tour is from the sign! Show them that investing in your virtual tour services and PanoRider can dramatically increase their exposure in the marketplace without any additional investment of their time.

If you don’t have a sample PanoRider yet, now is the time to get one! Just add an additional sign with your next order to save on shipping. So what are you waiting for? It is your virtual tour business, so get busy and show your clients what you’ve got…show them your PanoRider and start generating MORE REVENUE for you and your clients!!

Single Property Websites and PanoRiders Proven

In 2006 a survey was completed by the NAR* that found that 77% of all home buyers felt the internet was their top choice for finding information and 71% said the yard sign was a top source of information.

With this in mind, on February 25, 2008, Insight 360 Tours launched its newest marketing solution, using a single property website with Panorider. This powerful combination, which I call the Insight ImageRider, combines the power of and demand for online information via the Internet, with the effectiveness and drive-by exposure of the traditional yard sign.

The ImageRider is a custom sign rider attached to your listing sign. It contains a unique web address for the property along with a full color panoramic image from inside the home. The website address is the same as the property address so it is easy to remember for prospective buyers and neighbors.

This website contains your full interactive virtual tour with enhanced listing features including: integrated Panoramic and Still Photos with Interactive HotSpot navigation, City and School links, Maps, Satellite View and Driving Directions, Mortgage Calculator, MLS Number and Property Information, Customized Tour Window including Agent Photo, Email and Website Link and Phone Number, as well as Optional Music, Floor Plans and Brochures.

Since February, the single property website and Panorider have been purchased for several of my virtual tours and the results are astounding! While Realtor.com is still a top contender for listing exposure, the single property website is a very close second.

In some instances the single property website actually surpasses the exposure generated by Realtor.com by more than 3 times, receiving 173 hits in comparison to 47 via Realtor.com!


If you are a Realtor®, you are probably always looking for that edge over your competition; however, you are only interested in marketing that works! Let Insight 360 Tours help you achieve your marketing goals; call us today!

PanoRiders from RTV Earn You Additional Income

Ever wish you had more time? Tired of running around unnecessarily? Wish you could spend more time calling existing or past clients to see if they need any help?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, we have a great way for you to save time! If you are a great RTV provider who has decided to offer PanoRiders, you can save time! By ordering your genuine PanoRiders directly from RTV you are able to focus your attention on your business, and not the logistics of having a PanoRider manufactured and shipped. The only sign rider in the industry with a web address and a panoramic scene right on the rider is the official PanoRider from RTV. All others are copies and are not true PanoRiders.

The process for ordering is easy and can be done right from the TMS. When you are editing your 360 virtual tour, just click on the “Add-Ons” tab and scroll to the bottom of the list. Then click on the PanoRider option. Next, fill in your details for the sign. Note that you can ship the PanoRider to anyone in the US. This means you can ship it directly to yourself (so you can deliver the PanoRider in person for that special touch), to the client’s office or home, or directly to the homeowner. Each PanoRider comes with 2 zip-ties, so it is ready to hang right out of the box.

Be sure when you order to include a “high resolution panoramic scene”. The larger the file, the more clear the result when printed. You can export this image just after you stitch the panoramic scene in TourBuilder, but before you name and save it to your tour. Look for the “Export High Resolution Image” button.

Also, be sure to include the URL you want printed on the sign. It is important that you type this exactly the way you want it printed on the PanoRider. Some clients prefer their address compact (www.123PanoRiderStreet.com), while others prefer spaces so the URL is easier to read from the road (www. PanoRider Street .com). Whichever is preferred, we will oblige your request.

Remember that when you order your PanoRider you can order just the sign (Basic PanoRider Package) or include a Single Property Website (Deluxe PanoRider Package). With the Deluxe, we will secure the URL or web address for you, and forward that URL directly to your branded tour. This saves you time and money. Just think that Register.com charges $35 for a URL for 1 year! RTV only charges $22.25, and not only do you get the URL, but we do all the work for you. This gets back to our original point…we save you time! With the Basic package, you have to do all the work securing and establishing your Single Property Website. Why bother? Let us do that for you!

In the end, your Virtual Tour Business is a volume business. The more you sell, the more you make. The more you off load your work onto someone else, the more opportunity you have to sell your services. You have to ask yourself, how much is a new client worth to you? If you charge $100 for a tour (not including any extras, like the PanoRider), and sell just 6 tours to each client you secure, you are generating $600 extra a year. The time you save having RTV process your PanoRider order is enough time to call a couple of past clients and find out: a) do they have any business coming up that you can help with, b) ask past clients for referrals of other agents that could use your service, c) call new prospects from yard signs that don’t have a PanoRider or d) get in contact with a broker office you have not served yet, and introduce them to your great services, including the PanoRider.

So you can see that the RTV PanoRider is an easy product to order, saves you time, and gives you an additional USP (unique selling proposition). So what are you waiting for? Go out there and sell more tours with genuine RTV PanoRiders and start earning more money!

Montgomery Virtual Tour Company Beats Competition

My Montgomery virtual tour company kicked off business in March and since then we have been able to maintain 4-10 virtual tours per week plus Single Property Websites, Print Publications, Floor Plans, etc. So, we’re excited about the summer and have a lot of pending jobs on the table for New Homes and Rentals.

The changes to the TMS tools have been excellent and I’m able to complete publishing the tour very quickly.

The RTV technology is blowing others in my area away. I’ve beaten out two companies, Visual Tours, and our own RTV technology! I had a real estate agent in Auburn, Al who purchased all the equipment to shoot his own tours from RTV.

Long story short he managed to create some terrible tours and made a mess. Since then he gave it up and called us back-in to shoot all their virtual tours from this point forward.

The RTV technology is easy to use but it still requires someone with an eye for photography to produce a nice tour. I’ve taken some trainees out a few times and they can’t believe what actually goes into shooting the virtual tour and the things you have to set-up for.

Anyway keep up the GREAT WORK and I’ll continue to sell as many services as you can crank out.

Thanks

Use Virtual Tours to Stand Out

I recently spoke with a gentleman, who was in the process of putting his home on the market, about ordering virtual tour service from a Real Tour Vision full service provider. We started our conversation discussing the current market conditions and that’s when he began telling me a story about his recent encounter with several real estate agents.

It all started when he made the decision to sell his waterfront property and relocate closer to family. He called upon three different real estate agents to value his house and property. Each representative was on time, professional, and courteous, each made polite talk about the house and area, and then offered their valuation. However, he noted that not one made a dynamic presentation and none promoted any service that set them apart from their competitors. In fact, all three representatives made a point to advise him on the “slow market” and since his home was a higher end, custom, waterfront property he should expect to sit on it for “awhile”.

A week or so later when the time came to choose an agent, he couldn’t recall one significant, unique quality between the three prospects – all had been in the industry for several years, each had a decent website and, based on records, all were enjoying local success.

At this point, my curiosity had gotten the best of me, and I immediately asked him how he chose an agent to work with. He explained, of course, that he reverted to looking at who would offer him the lowest fee.

Suddenly I realized why fees so often become the most important element when choosing an agent – particularly when there isn’t anything else to distinguish one agent over another!

Why hadn’t at least one of those agents said something like:

“Of course, we use all the traditional marketing methods to market your property, but what really makes us stand out from the crowd is that we also use all of the latest tools available – for example virtual home tours, single property websites, and panoramic sign riders. By using such a wide range of marketing solutions we are able to offer you the very best opportunity of securing the highest price for your property. Also, by distributing your virtual tour to the hottest national real estate portal sites, we are able to get your property in front of a nationwide audience. We might not be the cheapest agent in town but with us you can be assured that your home is presented in the best possible light to potential buyers and because we don’t cut corners with marketing, when we’ve sold your home, you’ll know you’ll have achieved the best possible price.”

The market has changed recently and maintaining or even increasing selling fees is high on the agenda of every agent. Using visualization tools, such as virtual tours, helps make you stand out from the crowd and achieve the fee you want. Adding a single property website and PanoRider to your virtual tour just further enhances the chances of standing out and above other agents and helps you achieve maximum success.
