Property owners, agents and property developers have taken note to the increase in overseas buyers coming out of China and want to showcase their properties to these affluent overseas consumers.Using 3D/VR Tours, DaiWoKan (DaiWoKan Chinese website | DaiWoKan English website) provides a superior user experience for Chinese consumers looking to invest in United States Real Estate.As a Matterport Pro, featuring your 3D/VR Tours in China will impress your real estate clients and provide your business the competitive advantage needed to:✓ help you get more 3D/VR Tour business from real estate agents✓ help your client win more and bigger listings more oftenOver the past decade, international buyers have been flooding the United States real estate market buying properties across the country. Many of these buyers are from China and often they begin their search overseas; some buyers purchase homes sight unseen, relying on their friends, relatives or agents to provide feedback on the condition of the property.DaiWoKan has developed a website (DaiWoKan Chinese website | DaiWoKan English website) to help these buyers with their home search and offers the unique ability to really explore potential properties through a 3D/VR Tours.

WGAN Founder Dan Smigrod Discusses His Concerns for Matterport Syndication (Content Distribution)   Hi All,As I understand it - and correct me if I am wrong - Matterport presently syndicates "our" Matterport Spaces 3D Tours to:✓ Realtor.com (see press release 30 March 2017)✓ The New York Times Real Estate Section (see press release 3 April 2017) [NY area only]And, Matterport has announced that more syndication alliances are in the works.While on the face of it, this seems like a blessing for Matterport Service Providers ...✓ more views✓ happier clients (more opportunities to help client success)... I have the following concerns:✓ Matterport Service Providers do not share in the revenue stream when "our" Matterport Spaces are licensed to 3rd parties✓ Matterport has not asked us for our permission to use "our" Matterport Spaces✓ Not all We Get Around Atlanta residential clients want their Matterport Spaces distributed (e.g. pocket listings)✓ We would like to up-sell this distribution opportunityWhile we have stopped including the address in our models within Matterport to help stop this use of our content without our permission, I wonder if the Pro2 GPS is a trojan horse: meaning, even if I do not specify the address, Matterport knows where the property was scanned.I recommend that Matterport take the following steps:1. Give Pros the option to opt-in to syndication by: 1) All models 2) model-by-model 3) by folder2. Revenue share with Matterport Service Providers Pro CommunityOne of the reasons that Matterport will explode (in a good way), is syndication. I could imagine that we when scan a restaurant, for example, Matterport will syndicate - license - "our" content to 3rd party platforms that:✓ book restaurants ✓ book meeting spaces✓ book event spaces✓ book film/TV production locations✓ book group dining locationsAdd to syndication, derivative works such as:✓ VR✓ 2D schematic floor plans✓ video✓ GIF✓ SQ FT And, you get the idea.Plus, there are - and likely will be - 3rd party platforms that we would love to license "our" Matterport Spaces 3D Tours and derivative works. So, we pay Matterport for our Camera and hosting and they make money licensing "our" Matterport Spaces 3D Tours.Fair?I could imagine that the next syndication announcement will be with Google Street View. I  Google Street View. Enabling us to publish to Google Street View is amazing and exciting and increases the value of the Matterport Camera to us 10 fold, BUT I don't want "our" models published to Google Street View unless We Get Around gives permission.I  Matterport. Sometimes Matterport makes it hard to  ...If Matterport fails to enable Matterport Service Providers to opt-in/opt-out and share in revenue for the use of "our" Matterport Spaces - and derivative works - this will create an opportunity for other Camera/Platform companies in the 3D-VR-360º space to win-over the Pro Community. Their pitch? Revenue Share!What are your thoughts about Matterport syndication?Best,DanMatterBaby-in-ChiefP.S. This topic was inspired by discussions elsewhere in the Forum about Matterport using "your" Matterport Spaces in Realtor.com without their permission.

Using Video to Get Real Estate Agents as Clients; plus, camera gear for video shoot and post -- @GlennTremain writes: All the equipment a real estate agent would have to buy, then the $$$$ spent on training, etc. Its something you need to bring up. It IS a value that no one talks about and if you don't then the negotiation goes to price between providers.This is no different than when you go and buy a car. You just want their best price but they show you the features and things that the other car doesn't have. If you bring your equipment let them see it and touch it and talk about what each does. That adds value that shows you have craftsmanship and not just a button pusher. Great closing tool as part of your presentation is you ask me. Thanks @GeorgeK

Monthly Recurring Matterport Revenue Meets Making Your Competition Irrelevant.   ---   WGAN-TV: Vacation Destination Marketing PlanImagine the tourism bureau, Chamber of Commerce and/or Economic Development division for your city - promoting your [Location] Vacation Destination Interactive Map because you are helping promote tourism, hospitality and economic development for your Community (while generating monthly recurring revenue for you).I could imagine using ThreeSixty Tours to host your Interactive Map and using SatellitePanoramas.com to create an aerial 360º – if you are not an aerial photographer.Initially, I could imagine doing free Matterport 3D Tours of art galleries and trading restaurants for a monthly dinner to get to critical mass of digital assets that you can now begin selling ‘space’ - digital assets - on your map (monthly recurring fee for:✓ Matterport 3D Tour✓ Google Street View Tour (with nadir logo patch from TresdePro)✓ Photos✓ Video✓ Links to Restaurant menus✓ Buy Now Button | Book Now Button | Shop Now Button✓ Directions from here to thereI could imagine using WP3D Models Single Property Websites (example) for some businesses that include many digital assets for one business.I could imagine using TresdePro to create a nadir logo patch for Google Street View that includes your client’s business name, logo and website. (Need help with adding the logo patch? Color correcting the Street View Tour, eliminating scans from the upload to GSV and removing the camera from the mirror? Ask MP2SV for help.Now imagine that you no longer compete on price - you have made other photographers irrelevant because you provide a marketing solution - and, you have monthly recurring revenue.I could imagine that this is hard work up front and perfect fit if you are in a vacation destination or historic location or have a location that is dense in restaurants and art galleries and small shops.What do you think? This Vacation Destination Marketing Plan will be the topic on WGAN-TV Live at 5 (5 pm ET | GMT -4) Friday, 6 April 2018.
