Imagine that you are launching a Matterport Service Provider business.

Exciting! Overwhelming!

Where to begin? Read all 18,400 Matterport User Group Forum posts among 2,300 topics since MUG was founded on 19 August 2014?

Or, imagine that you have the help of a Matterport Subject Matter Expert (SME) since July 2014 whom has also read nearly all the posts (and shares his knowledge freely in the MUG Forum).

And your Jedi – with super-normal powers – curates Matterport 3rd Party Tools to help you succeed faster.

So, you join the We Get Around Referral Network as a Standard Member. And, you pre-paid for 12 months for an hour chat with Dan Smigrod (Founder, CEO and Chief Photographer of Atlanta-based Matterport Service Provider We Get Around and Founder of the Matterport User Group Forum and We Get Around Referral Network.) (Schedule One Hour Skype Video Chat Here)

Hi Dan,

Just reached out to Matterport about reseller/affiliate program. As of now, none is offered. I have some clients who would want this product as a service and some who would want to purchase a camera and system as they have support to do it themselves.

I'm wondering how many service providers lose business to realtors and other industry prospects that decide they can do it themselves and purchase camera as they can do models less than hiring a service provider. You basically just did a sales demo for the Matterports camera, sold them on the product and received no compensation or benefit. Not to mention you didn't get the sale for doing the model.

If you think a reseller/affiliate program is good for service providers maybe you can start discussion and or reach out to Matterport with your contacts to get this implemented. Like to hear you thoughts and others.
