Colin Forte, Founder of PhotoAndVideoEdits.com and Hometakes

Hi All,

If you struggling making Matterport sales to real estate agents, this two-hour WGAN-TV show (above) with @PhotoAndVideoEdits and @Hometakes Founder Colin Forte will be tremendously helpful.

As a real estate agent in a previous life, Colin sold $165 million in real estate in the West Palm Beach, Florida area in less than three years. He then went on to found Matterport Service Provider business - @Hometakes - also in the West Palm Beach area. And, now founded PhotoAndVideoEdits.com for outsourcing photo and video editing.

Colin's deep-understanding from the prospective of real estate agent, Matterport Service Provider and outsourcing photos and videos makes him uniquely qualified to discuss bundles/packages and add ons and how best to up-sell clients.

Colin also has a unique custom back-end ordering system that you MUST see to appreciate how he up-sells a $99 customer to $350 to $450.

Watching this WGAN-TV episode may completely change how you price photos, videos, Matterport and aerial.

Plus, Colin suggests additional add ons that you are not likely offering that can also dramatically increase your dollar order size.

Special thanks to Jason Blythe (@jblythe) for adding so much to this program by asking a ton of insightful questions. 

After you watch this show, please do share your thoughts here.

Best,

Dan
