Hi All,Do you have an opportunity to shoot a Matterport digital twin of an RV Showroom and multiple RVs?1. How do you use a Matterport Pro2 3D Camera in tight spaces of an RV?2. How do you organize 100+ MatterTags so that potential buyers can decide which MatterTag to click on?3. How do you integrate online merchandise shopping within an RV Store within a showroom?4. Should you shoot the RV showroom first: and then go inside each RV to shoot it?5. Should you charge by SQ FT? Shoot Days? Project? (And, what happens when the scope increases?)6. Do you charge for hosting, maintenance and support or have the client get a Matterport account?7. How do you scan with doors/sinks open and closed?8. When you have 100+ Matterport MatterTags, how do you figure out which are broken six months from now?9. Do you duplicate the Matterport space to create individual RV tours or shoot twice?10. How do you place the Matterport Pro2 3D Camera on an RV seat (without the camera fallings)?11. How long does it take to shoot a very large RV showroom? What makes it more complicated?12. How long does the Matterport Pro2 3D Camera battery last (during this kind of usage)?13. What kind of MatterTags should you anticipate adding to an RV space?14. What challenges might you expect?15.

However, my true passion is, of course, interior design and more specifically spatial problem-solving.I think I got my ability to make the most of a space from my parents who have always tried to find creative and practical ways to maximize every single centimeter of our small Italian condo (800 sq ft for four, tall people) and from the fact that I have lived in Italy half of my life, where everything is smaller. I mean, seriously, even the pizza is smaller![More] Best,Dan--Related Links✓ New Interior Solutions website✓ Francesca Tosolini on LinkedIn✓ New Interior Solutions on Facebook✓ Francesca Tosolini on Pinterest✓ New Interior Solutions on Instagram

Including a historical review of Silicon Valley, starting from the early 1900’s and a historical review of over 8 years in the development of a 3D/VR-tour technology.► The Silicon Valley’s technoculture provides guidance for market futures, such as 3D tour tech, but also constrains the future market.► While developers use their imagination to launch this market, the photography customer (including those first experiencing as an end-consumer) are pivotal in expanding this media into multiple markets beyond developers’ expectations.Possible Futures:➨ Positive: wider legitimacy, targeted marketing, convenience➨ Negative: (tensions) – photographer customers’ creative rights and end-consumers’ privacy rights► Ethical growth and potential legitimacy is possible through external imagination.What is the future for 3D Tour Technology for Real Estate Photographers?Find out on this WGAN-TV Live at 5 show.Plus, we discuss:✓ why the data captured matters (and why it may be more valuable than the 3D tour)✓ does innovation come from "Silicon Valley" or photographers or elsewhere (and why)✓ the tension/constraint of who owns the 3D tour✓ verticals such as museums, insurance and mortgage documentation✓ tips for 3D Tour photographers such as diversify your portfolio (and why)It's fun to hear about the future given that many of us are focused on today, tomorrow or next week.By the way, Dr. Kelley Cours Anderson was previously my guest on WGAN-TV Live at 5:✓ Transcript: WGAN-TV Virtual Tour Super-Heroes at Your ServiceGot a follow-up question for Dr. Kelley Cours Anderson (@kcoursa)?

COVID: Fewer in person showing appointments available (due to social distancing)3. Showcase properties4. 1st showings are done online5. Sell for more money6. Sell faster7. Many examples to show prospects8. Save everyone time (if not the right property for the buyer): seller not leaving the house unnecessarily9. Safe way for prospective buyer to tour the house10. Sight-unseen offers11. Enable the homeowner to share the virtual tour on their Facebook and with their friends12. Steers the listing presentation conversation away from discounting commission13. Steers the listing presentation conversation away from pricing the listing14. Keep the higher commission (despite the competitors discounting their commission)15. Prospects see our virtual tours (on our website, elsewhere) (even before our listing presentation)16. In-bound leads17. Synergy from using virtual tours on all listings; regardless of price18. Advantage of putting your best foot forward every time19. Use for Coming Soon window20. Multiple offers happen sooner21. Including virtual tours on every listing results in in-bound requests from home sellers22. Consistent marketing for all listings. Prospective home sellers pick up on that!23. Helps with repeat business24. Helps with referral business25. Streamlines the workflow to include a virtual tour in the same digital package for every listing26. Helps with the heavy listing that the internet does to market a listing27. Now I have a 24/7 Open House that gets syndicated to all the listing services28. Virtual tours move the needle; easy to justify the cost29. Invest in marketing the property; not the ego of the agent30. Money spent on marketing the property is a good reflection on the agent’s brand31. Win more listings32. ½ of virtual tour investment is getting listings; ½ is marketing the property33. Half our time is working on getting business. Virtual tours help generate more business.34. Text this code to see the virtual tour.35. Popcorn Effect: Sell one house in a neighborhood and more popup36. Virtual tours are like an online digital resume.37. Win bigger listings (average price point increases)38. To get million dollar listings, you need to be dining virtual tours for your other, lower price-point listings.39. Getting million dollar listings starts out with virtual tours for everyday listings.40. Your fiduciary duty you your seller: you owe it to the seller to use virtual tours! As agents, we are obligated to use the best tools possible41. “Digital resume” every time we sell a house.42. Virtual tours are a no brainer43. Missing out on future opportunities if you are not including a virtual tour44. It’s too expensive not to do virtual tours45. Virtual Tours helps you win business from other agents that feel that they are entitled to a listing.46. WOW factor gets you more listing presentation opportunities and to win more listings.47. Make it easy for home sellers to tell their friends about you (and your virtual tours).48. Homeowners can share the virtual tour (before it goes live on MLS); which agents can not do.49. Stats say houses sell for more money and faster if they have a virtual tour. The percent increase helps pay for the virtual tour.50. Virtual tours help you get more than just family and friends’ listings51. Virtual tours help buyers with that second look (after they have visited multiple listings)52. Virtual tours help buyers with friends/family that are helping the buyer make a decision.53. Virtual tours reduce the number of times the buy needs to keep visiting the property for measurements.54. Virtual Tours can increase touch points with prospects; particularly when using other tools to automate.55. Virtual Tours enable the real estate agent to be efficient with his/her time.56. Virtual Tours help eliminate tire-kickers.57. Virtual Tours help pre-qualify buyers for in-person showing.58. Virtual Tours help the real estate get full-commission.59. Virtual Tours help you justify your full-commission.60. Virtual Tours help you also get the house seller as a house buyer; typically at a higher price point.61. Virtual Tours help you get more referrals (from the home seller; from the home buyer and home buyer prospects.62. Virtual Tours are a small portion of the marketing budget for a listing.63. Virtual Tours help an agent not miss out on getting the listing; getting more leads and more referrals.64. Are you winning 100 percent of your listing presentations? (Virtual Tours will help you win more listings!)65. Are your listings as big as you would like? (Average sales price). Virtual Tours will help you get more.66. Getting a higher average sales price is a huge value for real estate agents. Virtual Tour will help get there.67. Did you lose a listing presentation in the last 60 days? Virtual Tours will help you win listings.68. Would you like to have a higher average sales price? Virtual Tours will help you achieve this.69. While the house will sell anyway, not statistically for as much money with a virtual tour.70. While the house will sell anyway, how does that reflect on your brand (versus agents using virtual tours)?71. While the house will sell anyway, you may not get as many referrals from the home seller, had you WOWed them by getting the most offers sooner and for more money.72. While the house will sell anyway, you are missing a key piece of your digital resume.73. While the house will sell anyway, when you use virtual tours, you are making a digital marketing resume that says, “I am an agent that uses the best marketing possible to get the highest price possible.”74. Virtual Tours help you avoid competing on price
