Matterport's Unofficial Announcement justinv 17 3 daysDanSmigrod (11797): @VTLV WGAN-TV has just confirmed that Antarctica is the next, super-secret Matterport testing location. At least a dozen penguins have been recruited to test if Matterport Pros paying clients for the opportunity to scan is a viable business model. WGAN-TV Live will be reporting from Antartica.

I - we - appreciate your insight (as well as @BillRobinson ) About the San Francisco trial, please help me understand what success might have looked like at scale for you? What would have been the best possible result? Even if Matterport could send you all the business you could want at the prices it publishes - and whatever the revenue share - I can not imagine how that income...

Pros Getting Top Dollar: Good for Matterport DanSmigrod 3 4 daysDanSmigrod (11797): @iTours360VR Well said. Matterport needs to focus on the benefits.

Which is the best Camera??? fragache 6 12 daysMetroplex360 (5395): The iGuide by Planitar excels in providing a panoramic tour with a map overlay that can be produced in very little time on-site. For businesses that are scaling and serving many Realtors who want a more affordable option, you can be very successful by choosing iGuide over Matterport. If you want a 3D Tour that requires about an hour on-site per 1500 SQFT (my average), then Matterport is your only option for a 3D tour with a floorplan and...
Is it time to drop prices? VTLV 4 13 daysVTLV (637): @justinv - Thanks for the feedback. Never thought if it as a "Doghouse" dilemma. lol. Many blank stares on that one as well. Opening pantries to get every nook and cranny would be self inflicted death, I wish that upon nobody. Walk in closets though, not a terrible idea, but could be avoided for faster shoot times, sure. The other services are there with stills and slide shows, ect. Just got the drone license, I've been an agent...
Compare Matterport Pricing to Competitors? DanSmigrod 10 17 daysGerhard (169): @mori, yeah I checked it out does not make any sense, one word comes to mind - CLICKBAIT, you click we sell you a camera. Must say looks like someone in their marketing department either is starting to do their job, just a pity they are not putting that same effort into getting the showcases in consumers heads. That is much easier to do than to try and sell cameras. But what do I know, I don't have a marketing, branding, Post Hole Digging...
How to Price Matterport Spaces 3D Tours? DanSmigrod 3 18 daysmori (307): One thing which is interesting especially in the relation when publish to streetview is available: the prices of streetview photographers. A list is available here: https://www.google.com/streetview/hire On most pages then you find prices. They charge much more for less viewpoints than an average MSP. But from our experience even this is often to much for people interested here in europe. In US the prices are lower than in europe.
Add Sales Tax to Still Image Pricing? JohnLoser 9 21 daysChemistrydoc (277): Another way around the tax would be to not charge for the photos themselves, but charge only for the delivery... but again, I'm not a tax professional.
Cost of Matterport Scans Processing Changes? tocha 9 25 daystocha (85): Quote your projects the same. The customer has no idea what you pay Matterport unless you tell them. What this structure would allow is the opportunity for MSPs to think outside the real estate box. Do you think a car dealer will pay $30 per car just so you can cover your processing fee and make a couple of dollars? What about a sculpture or work of art or a tiny house? The way the processing pricing is being treated now is limiting the MSPs...
Free Matterport Spaces 3D Tours to compete? DanSmigrod 1 27 daysDanSmigrod (11797): 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. He was lamenting about the need to potentially match pricing. I suggested that he offer free Matterport Spaces 3D Tours when buying his bundle of other visual storytelling solutions: ✓ photos (including retouching) ✓...
Dropping like a Rock? More like a Meteor! hometakes 12 27 daysNamecomingsoon (13): @Gerhard agreed. I'm thrilled with the product, the customer experience just leaves a lot to be desired. I just feel like a dummy because like you said- the writing WAS on the wall. Live and learn.
Contacted by other company for scans 3SixtyNow 11 1 monthExpertise (133): We own a busy RE photo company. We have subcontracted out Matterport to a local guy for the past few months. We received a 20% discount, which was OK, but not great IMO. I think he was being a little greedy and shortsighted. I really wanted 30% or 35%. So... We have a new Matterport camera on order now. If he had given me 35% off we probably would have continued subcontracting.
New Camera Price justinv 4 2 monthsGeorgeK (655): @Justinv We think alike Justin, I am still singing the benefits of having it but saying it has a higher resolution is not that big of a thing to me. I bet there is more on its way, in the digital space but right now in San Diego the percentage of Realtors even using the system is embarrassing given we are a high tech center and our prices are through the roof. Hope all is good your you in the TVA... george
How to Charge for MP to Google Street View DanSmigrod 5 2 monthsPHILG (76): I believe in SAS. Spent my entire career in software. That is how software companies made their money. I'm talking enterprise software, not off the shelf single user or small # of users. I'd close a deal, asp $250k, then we'd charge 15% foe maintenance and service. Although that model still exists in large corporate sales, the mainstream is going to a pure subscription - monthly or annual payment. Much like Matterport, adobe, dollar shave club,...
How Matterport Should Charge for Street View DanSmigrod 4 2 monthsBaxter (493): 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...
How to charge for MP Rich Media MatterTags? DanSmigrod 5 3 monthsMetroplex360 (5395): 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...
Realtor.com, Trulia, Zillow costs etc foxwrth13 3 3 monthsBaxter (493): Would be really interesting to hear some examples from agents regards average monthly prices for Zillow etc. Here in the UK many agents (estate agencies) pay upwards of £1,000 pcm just to list on Rightmove.
RV Dealership ArtisticConcepts 9 4 monthsMetroplex360 (5395): Wow, I was proposing much less to RV Dealerships as my pricepoint on smaller tours is $0.20/sqft. Smaller RVs would clock in at 100SQFT, and $20 didn't make sense, so I established a flat rate lowest pricepoint. The example by @ArtisticConcepts is VERY nice. The RVs I shot were VERY small and Matterport struggled to shine in the small spaces. I felt that using a Ricoh Theta S and building a custom tour would be better for that client. With...

.info domains on sale justinv 4 5 monthsjustinv (745): @DanSmigrod I honestly answered someone on the slower forum about building websites for the tours. I always give Ross credit and tell them to buy it. Little did I know that he did the drone work on the Goodsprings Loop in the example. He just bought a camera recently and I guess he was trying to sell her a tour. She gave him the site and he was blown away. He was trying to figure out how to duplicate my website and I was the one who answered!...
Refurb / Secondhand Cameras JACKS79 3 6 monthsMetroplex360 (5395): @JACKS79 @LetMe3D While I fully plan on buying a new Matterport Pro camera when it comes out, as inevitably, a new one will arrive, I am very cautious to speculate when one will come out. The current Matterport camera shoots 2K tiles -- much larger than is needed for viewing on mobile. The current Matterport camera, through recent firmware updates has demonstrated that image quality can continue to be improved through software...
How to Price Your Matterport Services DanSmigrod 3 7 monthsfrstbubble (298): @Rootsyloops just a note on the video. Video is not cheap at all. There is quite a lot of time in the post process. But remember how much production companies charge for a 30-second video. That is what you have to compare your pricing. You are doing it for a tenth of what they would charge for 30-seconds and giving them from 3 to 7 minute commercial. We have a few clients that don't care for or get Matterport but love the video end of it. We...
HUGE job pricing advice Charlieshoe 2 7 monthsJamie (1528): I did a 52,000 sq ft job and charged them 7c per sq ft. It was divided over 4 scans. 52,000 is a lot of data as well and you will most likely have issues with the app crashing.I'd plan it out carefully and quote accordingly.

How to charge clients for Matterport CoreVR? DanSmigrod 9 9 monthsProperty3dNZ (445): We are charging $50 NZ dollars for the VR. We decided on this number for a number of reasons - we want people to use the service, therefore it needs to be achievable. We are still struggling to really get MP off the ground with Real Estate with a constant number of scans weekly so having this small additional cost will hopefully not scare them off! We need to cover ourselves for the NZ dollar getting weaker as well.
Matterport Vs. Google Radie842 2 9 monthsjfantin (1060): MP and GSV are two different animals that happen to use similar concepts. In my opinion they complement each other but are not direct competitors because the value proposion is different. Quality is different and the navigation experience is superior with MP. The dollhouse is a killer feature for some customers (although not to everybody). While with Google StreetView you get more exposure because any time a user searchs for a business or a...
Whats Matterports plan!!! AAS 3 10 monthsMetroplex360 (5395): If Matterport would allow MSPs to sell cameras and receive a kick-back (either $ or credit), I would love to help sell cameras and offer a free consultation with scans. In my opinion, you cannot stop a Realtor from buying a camera, therefore, the best position to be in is to HELP them make that decision by allowing them to participate with you, have a hands on, and decide if its the right decision. I think that if Matterport ended the $600...

I still haven't heard from Matterport support, I will post an update once I hear from them.

Package Pricing Cabrahams 6 1 yearKateKratochvil (31): I charge .10 per sqft, and that includes my full set of professional photos. I say professional, because I have been an RE Photographer for 9 years. The photos I include with my 3D package are of the same quality and quantity that I deliver for any photo shoot I am hired to do. What's the point? I'm still making between 40-80 bucks an hour, including drive time and post processing. Works for me. To each their own!

If they have some interest, videos are a lean back experience. If they are very interested, Matterport Spaces are a lean forward experience. That said, the above simply does not matter. What...

If you know they are committed stick to the number you like if they are not then hit them with a number you are happy with.
