DanSmigrod 1 1 dayDanSmigrod (10978): Hi All, While talking with a We Get Around Network Standard Member today (26 June 2017) about a special opportunity, he mentioned that one of his challenges is a low-price Matterport Service Provider in his market.

Matterport Pros when do you get paid & why? DanSmigrod 11 1 daycswartz (55): @DanSmigrod Do you have an opinion on the ways different providers approach payments? Is there a right and/or wrong approach? Should we have a standard we could all benefit from by conforming to it? I certainly value your opinion and input and I'm thinking you may have had a reason for asking the question.

Matterport Reads Every Word of This Forum DanSmigrod 22 17 daysBaxter (433): I guess if that's the issue then the ability to swap custom icons in place of Mattertag circles incorporating perhaps 50 characters of associated text coming out from the right would suffice. The text perhaps doesn't show until you're close-by to avoid font sizing issues. The tour quality and transitioning (plus their branding within tours) is the differentiator, I don't see the visuals of the current Mattertag as brand recognition so why not...

You currently only show dollhouse- which is the grainiest lowest quality of matter port. Almost looks like iguide or something else. The magic of matter port is how realistic it is, especially in first person view moving from circle to circle. Show it off!

Pricing Matterport Scans (Out of Business) DanSmigrod 1 1 monthDanSmigrod (10978): Hi All, A Matterport Pro emailed me today (23 May 2017) about a price war: pricing likely where no one makes money. "When did profit become such a sin?' ... writes the Pro. I always come back to Blue Ocean Marketing for dealing with price.

Matterport: Virtual Store Integration DanSmigrod 4 1 monthBaxter (433): I've investigated at length about ecom integration.

If you could add one or multiple XML feeds to a tag we're off and running. This is well within the capabilities of the wizards at Matterport.

How Matterport Should Charge for Street View DanSmigrod 4 1 monthBaxter (433): We'll have to wait and see what the nominal fee is. I just can't get my thinking away from the fact that we would be paying Matterport to publish their own 3D tour to Google. Bill Google if they're going to bill anyone. Don't bill us or the client by default as it's neither ours nor the client's 3D tour to publish to Google Street View. The greatest respect as always and I do appreciate the staff commitment to making GSV happen. We shouldn't be...

Preschool Marketing Dept. Concerns 3SixtyNow 3 1 monthOpenHouseOptics (37): Statistics show that people go where they are familiar - if anything, them seeing it online will encourage a site visit AND increase enrollment because parents feel like they KNOW the environment. It's based on the same psychology we use when teaching fire safety or mass panic situations, look for the exits that are OPPOSITE of where you came in because people will go the way they are most familiar.

How to charge for MP Rich Media MatterTags? DanSmigrod 5 2 monthsMetroplex360 (4999): I think that the nature of the MatterTags should be taken into consideration. If the client sends you links to YouTube videos, fine. If the client sends you a list of Amazon items and tells you to include their id # so they get a kick-back, then you are providing a white-glove custom integration service that requires testing and precision. I would recommend providing a free # of MatterTags with each tour. Allow -1- video and up to 5...

Matterport for Airbnb.com JMEPhotos 7 3 monthsrpetersn (1279): Hi @PHILG...Correct, I don't believe VRBO will allow you to add any links to the general property description area. Instead, they offer this "external link" option that has to be approved by someone there at VRBO. Once approved, these links are then buried (in my opinion) way down the page. The ideal solution would be as you describe....adding a link near the beginning of the text used to describe a property. If I've missed...

Why a Real Estate Broker is No Longer a MSP DanSmigrod 7 3 monthsBale100 (10): In Spain becoming an MSP for Real Estate is a waste of time. Brokers generally do not have exclusivity for the properties they are selling or renting i.e. the owner has it listed with multiple agencies. The broker will not pay for 3D as they are fearful that they pay and another broker reaps the benefit. Owners will not pay €50 for photos on € multi million properties let alone €several hundred for a 3D Tour. Same with Yachts and...

So far, all I have received by being an MSP is 4 leads, 3 of which were actually people who wanted more information about purchasing a system so Matterport sent them to me as a lead. The last lead was a real lead - but only 250 miles away. Not being approved...

New MP-ad & landing page for Pointcloud mori 15 7 monthsAlex_iGuide (232): With more scans you collect more data and, as a minimum, that data will result in a denser point cloud and finer mesh. That will increase computation time and storage requirements, so MP must draw a line somewhere for practical reasons and may limit how dense the point cloud is and how fine the mesh is that they store and make available for download. If you leap-frog along the wall with more scans, the overall room length error will be smaller...

Don't Use the Word Matterport in Marketing ChrisH 7 8 monthsMarcel (271): I dont really agree with hiding the Matterport name. I've had a MP for a long time +- 2.5 yrs. Initially I made the mistake of trying to hide the name Matterport. It didnt take off as customers were confused with all the choices. The market has been saturated for decades with '3D Tours' and '360 Tours' products. It was not until we started including the name Matterport that business started to boom.

The model is so big that is may take a week to process or not process at all. Then, the likely 12gig file would need to be duplicated 2-4 times; delete scans (not in the master) and resubmit as multiple jobs. It's important to manage the client's...

The Speed of Advertising is it Video GeorgeK 1 9 monthsGeorgeK (553): As part of a total marketing program I use video to drive people to my site where I get to point out the difference between someone that uses video and Matterport and someone that does not.

You can almost always find ways to avoid them. It's a huge distraction to see the camera in the mirror and putting some sticker on the camera makes it even more distracting and tacky.

Matterport CoreVR is Now Live in 3D Showcase Metroplex360 2 9 monthsUserName (565): Thanks. One new Gallery model worked fine. However, the Venice Beach model appeared to load but stalled when the progress bar reached the end. I exited the Matterport Showcase app, went back and now it say the Venice Beach model may be corrupt so I can't view it. Maybe trying to delete it completely might help -- I'll try that. I'll also try another model to see what happens. It's handy having the gallery right there in the Gear VR.

I don't think they would mandate the use of Matterport, but they could certainly recommend it. Keith

Inputting a tour into Google street view Dolloff 4 1 yearWashingtonState360 (37): By the way, to become a GTP (Google Trusted Photographer), doing standard "photo-spheres", you'll need to attend a training and sign an agreement, which binds you NOT to do those at, i.e. museums and some other locations (which is why I didn't become one yet).

show or hide pricing? Dennis_N 12 1 yearWonderdawg (109): People who shop for the lowest prices aren't really the clients one would want to attract. What use to bother me is having a 360 tour competitor automatically advertise "we will beat anyone's quote by 20%". Turns out it hasn't affected my offerings. In the early days I hated losing a $2000.00 quote for $189.00. A wise pastor friend tells me "Go with those who want to go with you and bless the rest."
