Virtual Tour Software Updates – January 2021

Hello RTV Nation! In late December of 2020, we successfully upgraded our entire tour management system (virtual tour software) to PHP 7. Utilizing this newest PHP version allows us to make better looking virtual tours, property sites, flyers, social media videos, and most importantly, remain secure. While we were at it, we took the time to simplify the virtual tour manager layout and make everything operate on a per-project basis. This new “project” basis, along with the PHP 7 upgrade, prepares our system for the rollout of our job scheduling and payment collection system that we will be taking live next.

Users will soon be able to use the RTV system to schedule photography only jobs, connect to your favorite payment processor, tie into Quickbooks, collect payment before customers can download photos, and much more! Users are encouraged to get used to the new Fusion look and feel and watch the help videos. The new system has more than a dozen new features and time savers built-in. Feel free to switch back and forth from the old Fusion layout to our new one from now until February 1st 2021. At that point, all users will be automatically moved over to the new system. Log into your RTV Manager Now and check out these new enhancements and changes – https://manage.realtourvision.com

If you need help using the system or if you get stuck please feel free to contact our technical support team.  We’re always here to help you succeed.

Enjoy the updates to our ever expanding system!

The New Fusion & More – RTV Webinar Event

Mark your calendars! Some very BIG updates are coming to your Fusion virtual tour software system, and we’re inviting you to a live session to introduce the new and improved “Project-Based” Fusion system. As most of you already know, RTV is very close to rolling out our enhanced photography scheduling and payment collection system. Register Here

In preparation for this, we also have been simultaneously programming in many updates to the back end to streamline things for you and your clients and prepare the system for what’s to come. These new updates are making the RTV virtual tour system an even better and more comprehensive real estate photography system

We’re confident long-time users will find the new layout and navigation easier and faster to use.

virtual tour software updates

Because you’ll soon be able to use Fusion to schedule and deliver photos-only jobs to your customers, we are now calling each production a “project” rather than a tour. Projects are created faster, new users take seconds to set up, and many sections have been combined using tabs to save time throughout the build process. Those of you who are new to Fusion will be able to get up to speed much more quickly.

We feel it’s a BIG step in the right direction, and we’re excited to unveil it during this LIVE show.

The webinar will begin at 7:00 PM Eastern on Tuesday, December 15th. We expect our runtime to be approximately 45 minutes to one hour, to allow ample time for questions.

During the show, we’ll also share some of the features you can expect with our new, enhanced photography scheduling and payment collection system.

We hope to see you there during this Holiday season, as we give you a sneak peek at the “presents” we’ve prepared especially for you in appreciation of your loyalty.

See you there RTV!

Damon Darnall - Drone BossDamon says:
“Did you know the drone industry is set to generate $124 Billion over the next 7 years just in GROWTH in the drone service industry? You have 2 choices;

1. Pay for the benefits these amazing machines provide i.e., as a consumer
2. Get paid for providing the services as a business owner.

Drones are naturally socially “distant seeing” machines by nature. They have experienced even more rapid growth in need during this new way of doing business. Opportunities are accelerating the current demand of service provider businesses by several years. This is literally a once in a lifetime opportunity as far as timing goes to get a foothold in the drone industry. Drones are easier to fly and even more challenging to crash than ever before in history; simultaneously, the demand is at an all-time high with the supply of drone business owners. There’s a massive gap to be filled.”

Please join us for this live RTV exclusive webinar event on Tuesday, September 15th, at 8:00 PM Eastern. Let’s find out how regular people, as well as real estate photographers, with little to no drone experience, are building a $150K+ annual revenue stream by incorporating drones into their business.

See you there RTV!

The Best Virtual Tour Software Just Got Better

It’s been a BIG year for us over here at RTV and things are only just beginning to heat up! The demand for interactive 3D virtual tours and video walkthrough style virtual tours continues to rise exponentially. While the RTV programmers pound out virtual tour software updates, our customers are spending less time working in the back end creating tours and delivering images. They’re earning more by monetizing new features and positioning themselves to dominate their local market like never before. Overall the numbers are up! The largest and most impactful virtual tour software updates are still to come before the end of this year. Get ready for our new photographer manager, an easier to use and faster virtual tour back end, and job scheduling/payment collection 2.0. We hope you’re ready to streamline everything A to Z with your virtual tour, aerial drone, and real estate photography business.

If you’re not set up yet on our system and would like to take it for a test drive, set up your free virtual tour software account here.

August 2020 Virtual Tour Software Updates Include:

YouTube Multi-Channel Support – We have recently gone live with our multi-channel support for our video ripper under the “Video Production / Promotion” section of your manager. Now real estate photographers using the Fusion system are able to upload images, panoramas, or full-motion videos and compile an MP4 for posting on their channel, the agent’s channel, and even the broker’s channel. To enable this feature, you will need to authorize the respective YouTube channel from within the agent level or broker level accounts within Fusion.

Enhanced Video & Audio Fade – If you are taking advantage of the “Video Production / Promotion” feature to create social media video files for your customers, you will love our new Audio & Video Fade that we’ve added throughout the video production. It makes for a much more professional look and feel, and a better overall video. Enjoy!

Improved SEO on Property Sites & Gallery Pages – Further advancements have been made to the new property websites as well as our updated virtual tour gallery pages. These modifications will help them rank better in the search engines when internet users search for a specific property address or business name. We highly encourage everyone to add their own virtual tour gallery to their website like so – https://www.bluelavamedia.com/tour-search/ This will introduce the search engine robots to your gallery page where each of your productions will be indexed, and in theory, rank better. Give us a call if you need advice or assistance adding this to your website.

Brush & Build Added – As you create new virtual tour and property website projects you will now see that we offer a Brush & Build service which is listed under additional services. The service allows our users to take photos, upload them to RTV where we edit them, create the project, and get everything ready to submit to the client. Our Brush & Build service starts out at $1.00 per still photo and $2.00 per panorama. Give us a call today to find out more and take it for a test drive!

Property Site Hero Pause – We have added a new feature that disables the video streaming in the hero section of the property website when a user scrolls down on their phone, device, or computer. This pausing of the video streaming opens up more bandwidth and computer resources for interactive content below the hero such as an embedded RTV Tour, Matterport, 4K Vimeo, Zillow 3D Home Tour, Floor Plans and more. When a user scrolls back up to the hero section of the property site, the streaming is resumed. Enjoy the better playback experience!

Double Affiliate Disabled – Most of our customers take full advantage of the affiliate section in Fusion. Why wouldn’t you attach your logo/brand on every production that you create? To not “Over Advertise”, we have disabled the affiliate from showing up on the virtual tour AND the property website at the same time when you embed your virtual tour into your property site. To see an example of this, check out some of the property sites over at https://tours.bluelavamedia.com/ Scroll down to the embedded virtual tour section and you’ll see that the affiliate is suppressed on the tour but shows on the property site. If you, however, use the play thumb option and open your RTV virtual tour into a new window, your affiliate logo will appear on both.

Enjoy the new virtual tour software updates.  As always, feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have.

Sincerely,

Jason & Team RTV
