The FORMULA 63 – Fusion Exposure Engine

Please join me Tuesday August 14th at 7:00 PM Eastern for a full review of the built in Syndication Tools found under the hood of the powerful Fusion virtual tour system. RTV is establishing new Syndication partners every couple of weeks who are eager to pull data from the several thousand virtual tours and interactive virtual media presentations that RTV is pumping out each month. During the show we’ll cover how to setup your YouTube feed, how auto labels, tags, tour link and video description works on the Fusion system. We’ll take a closer look at the Craigslist Widget and how to further customize your Craigslist ads. Finally we’ll discuss in detail how to setup your Fusion Exposure Engine and what you might charge your clients for this ongoing added exposure and listing maintenance.

Home sellers are demanding syndication to as many sites as possible and it’s your job to educate your customers on value of “Good” syndication VS “Bad” syndication. Bad syndication is pushing listings out there that have been sold or send out listing with incorrect pricing and worst of all having all of your listings out there on syndication sites without your customers branding on them.  RTV has setup a formula and process for our virtual tour providers to follow that establishes a foundation for practicing “Good” syndication.  We’ll be covering this in detail on the show.  See you there RTV. Don’t forget your notepad and Ginko.  

Yours Sincerely,

Team RTV

6000 Virtual Tours and Beyond!

San Antonio Virtual ToursHave you ever wondered what it would feel like to shoot a thousand virtual tours over the course of a year or two? How about six thousand virtual tour shoots over several years? Meet Jerry Mumme, veteran virtual tour provider who has shot over six thousand virtual tours, burned many shutters and cooked a flash or two in his life. This is not a story however about a guy about to retire from running a successful virtual tour business. In fact, Jerry is fairly new to running his own virtual tour business, setting his own pricing, stitching his own photos, scheduling his own shoots, and running things his way.
According to Jerry, he’s just getting warmed up!

Jerry is so busy with his daily virtual tour shoots that his wife Trish is now taking an active role in Jerry’s virtual tour business by helping out with the books, scheduling his virtual tour shoots and working out virtual tour details in his virtual tour management system.

Jerry’s got one heck of a story to tell and a message to send out to the RTV providers as he continues to grow his business under his rule and fights off other national competitors in his area like Obeo, Circlepix, and VisualTours.
Please join me on October 11th as I interview Jerry Mumme and extract some very helpful hints and insight that will someday assist you in rounding the corner on your six thousandth virtual tour.

The FORMULA 56 – Shifting Gears

There comes a time in the life of every virtual tour company that the owner must sit back and make the decision of how to take the next step. You are out there on the front lines shooting X 360 tours a month. Your overhead is low. It’s you, your laptop, and trusty car. Life is good money-wise and you are spending your days shooting virtual tours.

Wait!! What’s wrong with this picture? You stopped doing your sales calls that’s what! Remember in the beginning of your virtual tour business you would hustle all day long, doing a sales pitch here, and a cold call there. Now that you have taken the time, put in your hours, and sealed enough deals to get the engine running, you are stuck and unable to continue growing your company. You need to shift gears. Do it the wrong way however and your wallet will take a hit.

Bringing on a new hire means that you will have to start cutting into your profits and instead of all of them going to you, you will now have overhead. On the flip side, bringing on a virtual tour photographer will free you up with the much needed time enabling you to get back out there, hit the bricks and bring home some fresh clients.

If you play your cards right like you did the first time around, in no time at all you will find yourself in the field shooting virtual tours for most of your day. You have now just doubled your company and this folks is called shifting gears.

Please join myself and a panel of top RTV Virtual Tour Providers from all across the USA on Tuesday, August 16th at 7:00 PM Eastern as we discuss the right way to take your company to the next level.

We’re looking forward to having Graves Carey from, Alan Fon from, and Mike Thompson from on our show.

We hope to see you there RTV!! Sign up now in your TMS
