Hello Forum, I'm in the research phase right now before I purchase a camera (or more?)and jump right in. I can see some of the frustrations that go along with any new venture. But the potential upside with this company looks absolutely phenomenal.
One market that looks interesting is the Vacation Rental Market. I would love to hear some really good success stories.
Monthly prices, marketing methods and even hard knocks don'ts?
Please if you could and thank you very much.

VRBO won't integrate our tours with their site. That has been a huge drawback to getting into this market.

I became a VRMA member presented at the national conference, spent thousands of dollars marketing and made thousands of phone Calls. I had 3 jobs schedule that would have been good but all 3 cancelled on me last min. I think the end result was me just selling a lot of cameras for Matterport.

1.) The MP camera is breathtakingly expensive.
2.) Using the MP camera is very time consuming, tedious and boring.

When they find out about the above, that MP Camera goes up for sale and they call us instead.

I represent CartoBlue (www.cartoblue.com) based in Destin, FL. We work a lot in the Vacation Rental industry and offer a lot of complementary products. Our most popular product right now is our Interactive Maps that showcase property portfolio location and are fully customizable to allow for the integration of Matterport Tours. We are offering 10% off all of our products to Basic, Standard, and Premium members. Our maps currently integrate with a handful of Vacation Rental PMS systems and are building out more each month. I'm open to further conversations on how you can offer these as white-label products in your area to help build your Matterport tour business to penetrate this market.

Lets all pitch in and create a site that we can have fully integrated with MP and has the best features for Rental Market.

What about AirBnB? Anyone gotten into that market?

AirBnB is testing Matterport in the Sonoma Select market and may be bringing it to other test markets soon. There is a Vacation Rental site coming soon that supports Matterport tours I found, called Vacation.Vision - Looks promising for us to sell as an add-on product for individual rental owners looking to promote their property with Matterport tours.
