Matterport for Airbnb.com4140

JMEPhotos private msg quote post Address this user
Hi, just wondering if anyone has had any experience with including Matterport tours in AirB&B, VROB, and the like for vacation rental clients?

Anytime I've contacted these companies, none of the tech help staff seem to know anything. I have clients who want to use this technology to market their vacation rentals and are waiting for me to provide the service but it's contingent on these sites allowing or being capable of creating a field for our link. Any suggestions? Thanks, Marshall

If I understand correctly, you can link to a page on a site running WP3D. I haven't tried it yet, and it's possible I misunderstood. But that was my understanding.

Hi,

Did you try sending these potential clients a test link to see what they can do with it, if they find a place on their property page, etc...
I am sure worst case, they can put the link in the description...

Hi guys...

To my knowledge, none of the vacation rental platforms have really embraced Matterport or 360/VR content. There was a brief moment when VRBO did offer a "360" tab (that accepted 360 pano photos) but this has since been removed.

I'd love to be wrong here, but I think that providing a simple text link to your own content is still the only option.

Here's a VRBO link to a vacation rental that I own/operate:

https://www.vrbo.com/171639

If you scroll (way) down, just below the "Owner Info" and just above the "Photos" section, you'll find the link to my own (WP3D Models generated) link:

CLICK HERE - Wilma Condo Virtual Tour

To be honest, I'd be surprised if anyone has ever found this link, much less clicked on it.

I'm sorry I'm not more help here and I continue to hope for something to change in this department.

I was under the impression VRBO wouldn't let you put a link in your listinng that would take you out of their site like a matterport link.

@rpetersn You said "To be honest, I'd be surprised if anyone has ever found this link, much less clicked on it."
Why not put a comment or a link in the description . Put it right up fron to make it stand out. I'm sure people would love to see it as hardly anyone else is utilizing matterport in thier listing.

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 something, or something has changed, I hope someone will chime in and let us know about other options for promoting Matterport in the VRBO (or Airbnb) space.
