Matterport Service Provider? Offer Your Services as a Subscription? DanSmigrod 5 18 daysMiguelea (46): @DanSmigrod Not yet. I am on pretty tight pricing with the client (I am considering to try it on). So I would probably go with Interactive 2D floorplan like this https://forum.we-get-around.com/cached/2313130c106a2aa747437d733c40bdc2.jpg Or video virtual tour like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDamJzdM-0U What do you think?

Insurance Claims TopPiX51 7 1 monthsbl110 (217): Hi @TopPiX51, Just my two cents on this pricing thing. Whenever I do a shoot, I order 2D schematics, then invoice based on the total square footage scanned. I've had homes where the reported square footage was 8K plus, but after I'm done, it may work out to less than that. This might be because the customer wants me to skip a garage, large closet, furnace room, etc. I then apply a cost per square foot against the total provided by the...

Up-Sell Opportunity for Matterport Service Providers DanSmigrod 2 2 monthsGlennTremain (1624): $90k porta potties agent’s just won’t do it and the market selling too fast has them gambling that they don’t need it. So you push more that they need to have them so they can farm a market hard to crack. Gated communities, areas that someone else sells a lot in. They can create pages or posts on their website and get them ranked page one better with a lead capture form that through a year will pick up at least one sale from it. So 5 or 6...

DanSmigrod 6 2 monthsDanSmigrod (16891): When quoting - especially for an agent that ALREADY HAS THE LISTING - do you include selling points about helping the agent: ✓ get most listing appointments ✓ win more listings ✓ win bigger premium listings (While the agent is asking about an existing listing, it's likely that you will have more successful if you can frame the quote about getting more business. Otherwise, Matterport is just another expense that comes out of the agent's...
Large Complex 3rd Party Job: Referral Fee or Make the Spread? DanSmigrod 2 2 monthsHelloPado (88): I've enjoyed being the 3rd party a few times now and i feel like it's a win/win. The original MSP fosters the relationship that they created and I get a fairly simple "scan only" job. Relationships are what we do as providers but i understand how it can be difficult to bring an unknown variable (3rd party) into a trusted relationship. As long as it is fair to both parties, i can see either option working well.

Question of the Day: Do you include a Highlights Reel with Matterport scan? DanSmigrod 3 2 monthsDanSmigrod (16891): @Home3D Setting the tour to always in walkthrough mode sounds like a great idea to encourage engagement. We lean to providing the fullest experience possible. It does eliminate us from consideration when agents are seeking the lowest price. We're fine with that since we seek high-end business for those that want the best experience. Best, Dan
Question of the Day: Do you include hosting in your Matterport scan rate? DanSmigrod 5 2 monthsJohnLoser (271): Yes - 6 months with the scan. It just makes sense to do it this way. I think "most" homes sell within 6 months so it's worry-free for the realty agent.

Embedding photographs Matterport leonherbert 4 3 monthsleonherbert (187): @Queen_City_3D I know how to do that, it is just inane to expect us to do that, and should be included. Time is money. or so I heard :)
Pricing Question (none Matterport) BrianM 7 3 monthsron0987 (964): The only concern I have would be and I do not know if you have a signed contract you use that has "a hold harmless" clause that if the potential bidder uses the photos in a way to back out of a sale point out an issue with the listing of the property at the auction. Then the seller goes after you. Did you offer the seller a chance to completely view all unedited shots?
Making Money Idea of the Week #5: Variable Pricing for 2D Floor Plans DanSmigrod 3 3 monthsDanSmigrod (16891): @PetraSoderling Thank you for sharing this research. Yes. Clients are paying up to $600 for 2 Floor Plans, there is a lot of room for a Matterport Service Provider to charge way more than what they are likely charging and charge by the size rather than one price for any size. Best, Dan

Question of the Day: Pricing Strategy for Matterport to Google Street View? DanSmigrod 3 3 monthsChemistrydoc (658): I love the pricing matrix that @Metroplex360 shared a while back on the forum and have pretty much incorporated that into my pricing. I think that one has to differentiate between clients that only want upload into GSV versus others for whom the hosting and use of the Matterport showcase will be also useful. Also, the price matrix that I mentioned needs to be upwards adjusted in light of Matterport's upcoming charging for the conversion and...
Question of the Day: Do you offer Matterport floor plans as an Add On? DanSmigrod 5 4 monthsGeorge_WALKINTOUR (85): We did at first, but Matterport actually messed up the first time with a client. It actually took them over 2 weeks to finish the floor plans. I can't remember what the issue was with it, but they totally screwed up on that job. The client then decided to cancel the order because Matterport took too long to produce the floor plan. :O

Cost Sharing Proposed - Thoughts? Snap 5 5 monthsSnap (169): Thank you. My question is more geared towards how much extra do I charge on top of what I normally charge. I think I may have used the wrong example. Think of it more for commercial applications for all parties. I can see the split ratio being up for discussion in some cases but if each party receives an entire scan for commercial purposes it would seem fair to say 50/50. It would also concern me that it would foster losing control over...

Matterport Charge per square foot lmrich73120 6 5 monthsVTLV (1366): I wouldn't bank on those numbers. Middle Man companies outsourcing to Matterport pros might get away with that pricing because their marketing budget has been pumped up and beating you out of your own market. Many of us try to make $0.10 a square foot. If there's multiple cameras around you, expect your competition to drop to as low as $0.03 a square foot just to beat you out. Photography services have been taking off the past few years...

Question of the Day: Do you charge extra for Matterport MatterTags? DanSmigrod 5 6 monthsDanSmigrod (16891): I don't have a bias one way or the other: simply inspiring Members to share what's working / not working for them. For example ... ... is enabling Clients to sample the value of MatterTags, with the potential for upsell. I could also imagine that it depends on the kind of Space.

How to I respond to this!? 3SixtyNow 5 7 monthsjasondavidpage (193): I'm guessing there was a misunderstanding between what the agent thought he was getting and what he actually received. I don't know how many times I've had an agent call asking about virtual tours only for them to just mean a slideshow of still photos. That being said, try to appease this client and then fire him.

It doesn't cost you anything to push a button to have it active again, and so far it seems that Matterport has been holding off with their insane idea to charge for going over the hosting limits (MATTERPORT: Remove that from your plans and you will 100% sell more cameras!!!). Personally if it was me I'd let him use it again. He paid for it once and I'd want to keep...

We are not Silent Lamb, we can have free OBJ JuMP 10 10 monthsMetroplex360 (8620): @mori I agree completely. Give out the 50k OBJ file and label it 'BASIC OBJ' - For hobbiests and enthusiasts. And then have 'PRO OBJ' with high resolution textures with the MatterPak. I believe that the people who want the OBJ files for recreational purposes are unlikely to purchase Matterpak and the people who actually want the 3D data will gladly pay.
In the unlikely eventI get run over by a bus leonherbert 6 10 monthsMetroplex360 (8620): I was one of the MSPs who was given a very abbreviated pitch about these ideas and asked what I thought. My submission was that Matterport need to take over hosting responsibility to anything that was being absorbed into this program. It solves the 'bus' problem and it enables them the right to claim that they have a database of 800,000 spaces. I think that this could have been accomplished without the TOS being amended and without scaring...

A Matterport Email Targeting Agents DanSmigrod 9 10 monthsRPOceanic (208): Already spoken to this lots. Even if Real Estate agents were inclined to dive into this- and most, most definitely are not..... it just doesn't add up for an agent in terms of time/money invested and lost focus. With the cost of a camera, ancillary gear, hosting fees, learning curve, time spent on shoots, post production, keeping up with new developments.... the only way it remotely makes financial sense is making tours for a LOT of listings....

New Listing Platform for Real Estate Agents DanSmigrod 6 1 yearDanSmigrod (16891): Hi All, I could imagine this platform is NOT about how many agents/traffic; rather a way for a real estate agent/broker to have a place to host and share their branded tours. @OpenHouseOptics I could also imagine that this platform may be helpful to those that do not have a Wordpress hosted website (that then can take advantage of WP3D Models Wordpress Plugin).

First Time Client Offer: $99 3D Tour DanSmigrod 10 1 yearJohnLoser (271): I have seen a provider's offer for "$99 for a scan". It's a race to the bottom. Once a "$99" price is set, a customer will expect it again and again or something close. He is following the Cable TV/Satellite TV pricing scheme. (If he is following the cell phone marketing scheme -- he is hitting them with a TON of hidden extra fees.)

Charge for Cancellations of Photo Shoots? DanSmigrod 2 1 yearaarongeis (70): Hi all, I agree with the answer given in the first response on the blog.

For clients I haven't worked with before or that I only work for infrequently I ask for a 50% deposit to secure the scheduled shoot time with the...
Matterport pricing -- did I miss something? sbl110 7 1 yeartocha (166): I have suggested to Matterport several times that they created a graduated pay per number of scans schedule that would allow for more experimentation and discovery. For example: 4.95 for up to 10 scans, 9.95 for 11-50, $19 for 100. I believe it would foster more innovation and income opportunities for us and for Matterport.

Charge for 2D Schematic Floor Plans? Bundle? DanSmigrod 3 1 yearmp2fp (376): The good thing about bundling is that there´s no need for transparent pricing - so the perception of value can easily be increased. Take for instance our $ 40 2D + 3D package - mark that up 3X and you´ve made an $ 80 profit. $ 120 for a 2D + 3D floorplan is not an unusual price, and I´m sure in some markets you could charge even more.

is this pricing ridiculous ? TierOneVentures 15 1 yearViewing (583): Interesting points. Let's see how it plays out over the coming months and years.

Matterport's Unofficial Announcement justinv 23 1 yearVTLV (1366): That's as bad as having news channels speculating over tweets as an ongoing investigation for their main story.

If you charge them a hosting fee of £50 - £100 pm you will get an extra 1.2k p.a. EVERY year.

I am not a plumber I do not put together pipes. I take digital images and tell a story. Thus I am a story teller. Here is part one...

How to Price Matterport Spaces 3D Tours? DanSmigrod 3 1 yearmori (634): 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.

Cost of Matterport Scans Processing Changes? tocha 9 1 yeartocha (166): 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...

Contacted by other company for scans 3SixtyNow 11 1 yearExpertise (148): 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.
How to Charge for MP to Google Street View DanSmigrod 5 2 yearsPHILG (79): 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 yearsViewing (583): 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.

How to charge for MP Rich Media MatterTags? DanSmigrod 5 2 yearsMetroplex360 (8620): 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...

DanSmigrod 10 2 yearsRPOceanic (208): I completely agree that a good number of agents aren't so concerned or even aware of the little details that an MSP may sweat over trying to get right. I think there are numerous reasons for this. An Agent isn't going to spend nearly as much time as the pro within the tour, won't likely walk through an entire model. An Agent will only be associated with most tours they buy for a short period, then will move on to the next listing or sale, will...

New MP-ad & landing page for Pointcloud mori 15 2 yearsAlex_iGuide (301): With more scans you collect more data and, as a minimum, that data will result in a denser point cloud and finer mesh. That will increase computation time and storage requirements, so MP must draw a line somewhere for practical reasons and may limit how dense the point cloud is and how fine the mesh is that they store and make available for download. If you leap-frog along the wall with more scans, the overall room length error will be smaller...

Example of Matterport specific Proposal Cabrahams 2 2 yearsDSPhoto (112): I don't have a proposal to offer you but part of my consideration for using Matterport is how to license the work.

Also, with this idea I just signed up 2 salespeople with a 20% split just since reading this an hour ago. And I will be signing up some more. Thanks a bunch for this post! Good stuff.

too expensive! ArchimedStudio 9 3 yearshtimsabbub23 (667): Along those same lines I worked many years in retail cellular (the startac was our number 1 selling phone in 1997). Fast forward to the blackberry and you were so dumbfounded business people would spend $45 a month on Internet for their phones. A few years later everyone and their 5 year old kids have smart phones...... OK ok maybe 10 Yea old kids. When I left Verizon last year our quota was 93% smartphones to 7% basic phones. We're at the...

Monthly Recurring Revenue versus 1x Payments DanSmigrod 24 3 yearshtimsabbub23 (667): The way I see it is, real estate buying and selling will always be part of our society. Build yourself a network of realtors and be trustworthy, honest with your clients and yourself. save money for the "next big thing" because we all know even the biggest companies come and go. But for now these mountains are filled with pretty gold flakes!

clean up Dalivingston 3 3 yearssuncoastskyview (175): After your work is processed by Matterport there are times when certain artifacts appear outside the dollhouse. You can use the "trim" process to clean up these anomalies. It is not difficult and only takes a minute. Then you re-upload your file and have it re-processed. They do not charge you for that. I agree with the Beckers regarding taking still captures from the Matterport scans. They are excellent. Most of the time, I...

VR Beta costs Noel 4 3 years360Verbeelding (340): Hi, I understand that MP wants 500 US for processing a file to VR and it needs 2 weeks to process. Is this correct. My question is, why so expencive and why do the need al that time to process. As i wamt to convert my regular 360 shootings to VR it takes me not more then a day including touch ups of the footage. I do this in Kolor, that sells for under 200 US, more then half the cost of on MP VR. I think MP should think about who their clients...

Pricing>Bundle Hosting or Charge Separately? DanSmigrod 6 3 yearsDanSmigrod (16891): @Aghachi101 Great question. You might ask support@matterport.com and report back in this thread post ... I could imagine the house not selling. Another agents wants to use the 3D Showcase - or even get a VR version - and you would want/need the original model. As far as I know, if you delete a model from your my.matterport.com account, it's gone. While I can appreciate that the shelf-live of a house-for-sale may be limited, here's why not...
Two Pricing Questions Cabrahams 6 3 yearsron0987 (964): I do what Jamie does, its dependent on the client, a long term client that has been loyal with work I don't worry about it. Newer clients we include it as an additional charge, most clients have no problem with the charge if they know it up front. Others hate the added charge after the job is complete. Ron

Well im a complete newbie to the 3D tour world but I would try and base it off how long it may take you... I just did one and it took me 5 hours... At the end of the day I want at least $100 an hour but that just my time. Again also depends on how much per sq foot you want to charge. Im charging a price range of a 1000 sq foot then it goes to the next tier. But something this big would...
My solution to get invoices paid on time Marcel 12 3 yearsStevenHattan (1510): How about send a letter to all the Realtors telling them what happened....then...send a letter to the builder and say, "I'm a local Realtor and received a letter you're not paying your bills. If this is true I will never send a buyer yoru way and make sure everyone knows how you operate." It only takes a single person not to buy from him and he's lost tenfold.

Pricing CarlosFHdz 10 3 yearsJML (1): Its too often that more or less young guys start offering these kind of services, either drone or anything that has to do with electronics and basically ruin the market with a pricing that is completely out of the range. As Cathie said, they simply dont understand business cost and earning structure good enough in order to justify proper pricing. When this happens, its too late as the client for sure will only remember the lowest price someone...
Scan Price based on Price of Home StevenHattan 7 3 yearsedirwin (34): I think it's a big mistake to price our services on the price of the listing. That should have nothing to do with the price of our service because it has nothing to do with the value of our service. Once again, you start to do that and bingo, you ask for someone to undercut you in price. Come up with a rational pricing structure that fits for all situations and that applies to whether the home is vacant or staged or occupied. Yes, there will be...
