RealTour Fusion Update

Hello RTV virtual tour providers! We wanted to keep everyone updated with how things are progressing with the testing of our new RealTour Fusion virtual tour system. RTV was able to begin our internal beta process on Monday the16th of Jan. This was the first time we were able to create FSD accounts, Photographer (your photographers) accounts, agent accounts, broker, and owner accounts, and of course create Tour Track jobs in the new virtual tour system.

We’ve also been able to successfully create panoramic virtual tours, as well as HD still and video tours.  We’ve been very busy experimenting with many of the new features included in the new system and over the last few weeks we’ve had the team in here testing as early as 6AM. While we’re not gaining any extra points with the team, we have been able to get quite a bit accomplished.

We have submitted about 150 edits and change requests thus far and have the development team working overtime to get through them. While some of the changes are very minor, others are quite extensive and require more time to refine. We want to make sure that the transition from Tour Builder 4.0 to RealTour Fusion is as seamless and enjoyable as possible.  Hands down, you’re going to love it.

Change is typically never fun and getting used to the new virtual tour system will require some adjustments, attendance to many of our 2012 talk shows, video training sessions, and if you really want to get hands on training, you may even attend our RTV Convention here in May. The added features, time savings, added revenue generators, and features not found in any other virtual tour system to date will make the rollover worth it many times over. RealTour Fusion is going to take your virtual tour business to the next level.

We’ll be keeping the RTV network posted via our blogs, phone calls, and emails as we make progress with our internal beta and transition into our focus group beta. This will be a beta testing process with a very small group of some of our top providers.  We anticipate the focus group beta period will be short since we’re spending extra time now with our internal process.

As soon as we have an exact launch date we’ll be informing everyone and scheduling our first FORMULA and IMAGE episodes for the year. Please keep your eyes out for that inside of your TMS. Thanks for your continued support RTV!.  We’re very excited about how this will change your virtual tour business.

Yours sincerely,

Team RTV

Groups or Fan Pages?

Hello RTV.  J.R. here from Kokomo’s Best Property Marketing Company and virtual tour provider. Well, this is really a no brainer, but it’s good to have an explanation of the differences, because each has its own functions and its role in your real estate marketing plan.

Think of a group as more of an organizational tool on the personal level but not really for a large scale interaction. Pages should be used if you are trying to build a brand around your Real Estate Business. Having a Fan Page allows you to interact with your “Fans” or customers without having to be connected with them on you personal account. With a personal account, you are limited to Facebook’s 5,000 friend cap. A Fan Page allows you to surpass that 5K mark. Imagine having more than 5,000 fans getting your message in their news feed everytime you decide to share something with them. I bet they would remember you when it comes time to buy or sell a home. You’ll also be top of mind when they hear that a friend or relative needs to work with a Realtor….. I can see the referrals already!

What Exactly Are Facebook’s Fan Pages?

Fan Pages were added to facebook so that businesses, organizations, or even personal brands can keep in touch with their clients and potential clients in an official, public manner.

For us, the key word here is “personal brand” because when we use a Fan Page for a niche specific keyword or product, that is our business. As a realtor it is extremely important to begin establishing your personal brand and identify your NICHE. I’m not saying that you should ignore the other avenues of income but you should become “known for something.” First time home buyers, move up buyers, short sales, repos etc……

With a tightly keyword focused Fan Page, you will be indexed fast by the search engines. Your individual fan page will let you be recognized as an expert in your niche with exposure to maybe thousands of people each day, build your list, generate traffic to your blogs or websites, and much, much more.

Fan Pages now allow you to add a graphic message instructing potential FANS to click the LIKE button before they can view information on your page. You should always have a call to action in your marketing and that holds true for Facebook as well. Check out our Fan Page to see an example of the “call to action” that we use. If you set up a FB Page for “Buyers,” you could offer them a Free Report like “15 mistakes to avoid when buying your first home” if they become a Fan of your page.

If you would like us to provide you with a custom Facebook Fan Page Design, click here to order or see some other designs. Our service is extremely affordable! This is what we do!!!
