Virtual Staging by Island Digital Imaging

Island Digital Images is proud to introduce our newest property marketing product, Virtual Staging. Virtual Staging is ideal for Realtors, Builders and long term Rental Companies who need a low cost solution to show unfurnished properties with virtual furnishings in photos and online within the Virtual Tour.

A common obstacle when a perspective buyer or renter is looking at a new property that is unfurnished is trying to visualize what the room would look like with furniture. This visual barrier can even be more challenging when looking at a property online. By introducing Virtual Staging we further enable your prospect to see the home in a way never before possible.

See why we say that Virtual Staging is the best invention since the introduction of the Virtual Tour for viewing unfurnished properties.

Feel free to contact us at Virtual Digital Images at (512) 255 - 3200, for more information and to schedule your Virtual Tour and Virtual Staging appointment.

You can also go to www.VirtualTourStaging.com to view a few examples of how this unique feature looks when used within your virtual tour.

We look forward to helping you with all your digital marketing needs.






Thank you

The FORMULA 73 - Marketing with the Headshot Guy!

Please join us for a one hour webinar all about marketing a virtual tour company and rebranding oneself from one kind of professional photographer to another.  On Tuesday, May 19th at 7:00 PM Eastern we will be talking with Jamie Koster from www.RealEstateShots.com and dive into some of his best marketing strategies. Jamie came to RTV about a year ago with no real estate customers whatsoever and has since shot over 100 virtual tours and climbing.  He continues to increase his tour numbers each month and loves building his business one customers at a time though routine and simple marketing efforts that you can learn too.

Jamie recently sent in this testimonial which inspired us to have him on the show:

“Greetings from sunny South Florida.  I cannot express my gratitude to the folks at RTV virtual tour software company.  At my age, and at this time in my life, I needed change in my photography career.  Jumping on airplanes with huge amounts of equipment for giant corporations and never knowing what country or city I was in was starting to wear this 53 year old out. The thought of shooting nervous brides and they're twitching mother was not an option and I needed a local market that was easy to market to.  After doing lots of research I decided that real estate photography was the perfect niche market.  Who is easier to market to than people who are already advertising themselves? Plus they are licensed by the state and you can easily find them all! My theory is that if you treat a realtor right, you will have repeat business and a customer for life.  You make them look their best online and they are more than happy to refer you to all of their associates.” – Jamie Koster

On the show Jamie and I will discuss his story of rebranding himself and some very simple and easy to use marketing strategies that keep him busy doing virtual tours and real estate photography all day long. 

Please join us on Tuesday, May 19th at 7:00 PM for The FORMLUA 73 – Marketing with The Headshot Guy!

Sincerely,

Jason

Southern Louisiana Virtual Tour Provider Hits T4 at RTV

RTV proudly recognizes James Johnston of LightWriter Virtual Tours and Photography as our latest T4 certified virtual tour photography company.

LightWriter Virtual Tours and Photography is a locally owned Lafayette, LA virtual tour and photography company, with team members Tucker Johnston and Certified Professional Photographer James Johnston. With over 15 years photography experience each, this father and son team is committed to providing their customers quality service and professional designed products to drive more traffic and increase sales while spending less.

With the use of RTV’s state of the art Virtual Tour Software, LightWriter brings you a FULL MULTI-MEDIA experience. It supports still HDR photos, cylindrical and 360° panoramas, and full motion video. You also get 24 hour internet exposure by syndicating to multiple websites, valuable reports on where your viewers are coming from and how long they are staying, and so much more.

For Realtors, the HDR images, panoramas and video offer potential buyers the opportunity to view the property as if they are actually there. This helps pre-qualify them and allows you to only show the property to buyers who are really interested in what they see. This keeps you from losing more commission. Our mission is to take the burden off of you and help make the marketing successful and for you to sell more property. HD Virtual Tours are also great for adding visual appeal to businesses such as Resorts, Malls, Restaurants, Golf Courses and more. Your clients will be impressed before they even walk through your door!
