360 degree Virtual tours
Show what can’t be described!
A 360° virtual tour is a simulation of a property for viewers to see and experience without having to actually go there.Do you have an amazing showroom featuring an unbelievable product? Don’t tell your customer about it, have them check it out first hand without having to leave the comfort of their own home. Talk about a BIG selling point!
INCREASE CUSTOMER ENGAGEMENT
Allowing users to explore your locations freely reduces their fear, increases trust and delivers better informed – higher quality contacts. Visitors stay an average of 40% longer on sites with Virtual Tours than regular sites with none. This increase in duration can lead to more enquiries which in turn can potentially lead to more sales and visits. Virtual Tours can be watched and shared from any computer, smartphone, tablet or 360° VR headset. You can also easily incorporate your Virtual Tours to your own website, Facebook page, Youtube channels and Google Business View too. So many possibilities for more traffic.
GOOGLE BUSINESS VIEW
Google is the number one way people search for businesses online. But ranking high on Google can be as complicated as explaining the formula to all credit scores. Nearly impossible. But a 360° Virtual Tour of your property can definitely help. The more clicks and time visitors spend on your site, the higher your business will organically rank on Google search. If directed properly using social media marketing, your business profile can appear at the top of the results page which can be big profits for any business.
IT’S THE FUTURE
With this technology quickly growing and many powerful platforms like Facebook, Youtube and Google pushing virtual reality more than ever, 360° Virtual Tours are here to stay. While one business owner may not see much value in offering this feature to customers, the owner across the street will – and reap all the rewards. Just like television and magazines changed the world of marketing, 360° Virtual Tours will engage new customers for many years to come.
Increase Sales With Virtual Tours For your Real Estate Listings
- Are Interactive and Viewer-Friendly: Virtual tours allow viewers to explore a property independently. They enable your audience to enjoy a visit to each room they want to see. In each room, they can focus on the lighting, flooring or another aspect of interest to them.
- Hold Attention for a Long Time: Unlike plain text or still images, virtual tours can keep the viewer glued to your website for up to an hour. As they explore each room, it’s easier for them to dream about buying and living in the house. With automated human voice technology used for creating narrations, the viewer is captivated by the virtual walkthrough.
- Create a Strong Sense of Ownership: The longer a client spends looking through different sections of a property, the more they can imagine themselves owning it. Combined with other interactive tools like mortgage calculators, these tours can urge the client toward closing the deal.
- Save Time and Effort: Instead of staging a time-consuming and strenuous open house event, a virtual tour remains permanently open for anyone who wants to visit. This saves you the time and resources you would otherwise spend scheduling an open house, keeping contacts and staying at the site while many who will never buy just come in to ask questions.
WHY REAL ESTATE AGENTS SHOULD START USING VIRTUAL TOURS TO THEIR ADVANTAGE
Virtual tours attract qualified prospects and increase conversion rates on high-value properties. If you’re still saying to yourself: “How are virtual tours useful for real estate agents like me?” here are the main reasons to add a virtual tour to a real estate listing:
To Capture Customers in Remote Locations: This technology is excellent for high net-worth customers who want to buy expensive property from a foreign country or remote location. Buyers can click on rooms, bathrooms, kitchens and patios, giving them a clear, 3D view of each part of the home.
To Allow for Better Interaction Online: Customers can make comments about almost any aspect of the home. For instance, a client can ask questions about countertops, materials used for flooring, the type of insulation in the basement and other areas. As an agent or broker, you’ll be able to provide feedback in real-time from the comfort of your office.
To Promote Both New Construction and Remodeled Homes: You can guide would-be buyers with a virtual tour to help you see exactly how the completed project is expected to look. This means buyers can have a walkthrough and leave comments before the construction starts or gets completed.
