I'm sure this is not new to the veteran MPers' here but I thought it is interesting enough to post.

Setting up my Facebook page I wanted to limit Matterports branding as much as I could. So I have created a standard image template for presenting my scans on FB and Instagram.

But I didn't like the url having matterport in it. So I decided to use bit.do and create a custom url for each post.

So for: https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=UpjsiYc2MRo&help=1
I use this: http://bit.do/rva3D-AhabsTale

also if you sign up with bit.do you get stats on the links you create. I mean who doesn't like more stats?

Amateur stuff but if I inspire just one person...

Hi @DSPhoto,

That is a great way to get matterport out of the url, but I would encourage you to consider using WP3D Models for this purpose. If you use either the "skinned view" or branded "full screen" view, it will display your website information as to a generic bit.do website. Also, when the site opens, it reflects your website instead of having matterport appear in the url. And as an added benefit, it helps with your SEO as more people are directed to your website instead of directly to matterport.

Just some thoughts.
Jon

WP3D is an option I am considering but trying to keep costs down as I build up business. Website, Monthly MP fees, WP3D and on and on...

It all adds up.

I understand where you are coming from, but if I were to start my business again, WP3D models would be one of the first things I would invest in. The value added far outweighs the cost in my opinion.

I'm starting to come to that conclusion.

@DanSmigrod, I think there is something missing in my understanding of WPD3... what is so different from what I am using now, I mean side by side.
and is this an extra fee per tour of is it a monthly ?

Thanks Douglas

@DanSmigrod I know but like I said- It all adds up.

I'm trying to not make residential real estate my main focus so I'm not sure if WP3D is the path to take.
