is a Virtual Tour?
Our online virtual tours are a series of 360° panoramic photographs linked together to create an interactive walk-through virtual reality experience. They give the viewer the choice of what to look at in high definition.
The freedom to interact makes virtual tours an engaging marketing tool that is more realistic than still photos or video. It provides the viewer confidence that it is a realistic representation of the property leading to faster decision making, generating more business for you.
Virtual tours are hosted either on our website for custom or real estate virtual tours or on Google Maps for business virtual tours. Both types of virtual tours are available for viewing 24/7. The business virtual tours are linked to your Google business listing. So, when someone looks up your business on Google, they can see inside your business.
How We Create Your Virtual Tour:
- Tell us where your property is located and when it would be available to photograph.
- We will coordinate the timing for our photographer to do the photoshoot with you.
- After the photoshoot, our tech staff will process the 360 photos into a High-resolution virtual tour and post it online, usually within 1 business day
- We will provide you the URL link and simple instructions on how to post it on websites and in social media
- You add the URL to all the online services you are using and marketing material so prospects can easily view it online
Interaction Leads to More Sales
When completed the virtual tour allows you to move right, left, up or down through each of the panoramas to get a true visualization of the area. Just like you would do if visiting in person. One of the big benefits is this allows prospects to preview your location and to see it as if they were really there.
Properties can be viewed in a much easier and more interactive way than through traditional still photography or video. Prospects can interact with the virtual and have control over what they look at; more like a personal visit to the site.
If a photograph is worth 1,000 words, a virtual tour is worth 1,000 photographs
