Question of the Day: Do you charge extra "per additional floor" for MP? DanSmigrod 2 10 hoursrzphotoman (1117): Interesting concept :eek: Not sure it would work with my client base.
Question of the Day: Do you charge more for one business day delivery? DanSmigrod 4 1 dayfotoguy (223): The MP processing is incredibly slow these days. I ordered a floor plan last week that took over 48 hours to process. The realtor had to add it to the MLS listing later. I hate making more work for them.
Question of the Day: Do you do Matterport scan/charge for Garages/Carports? DanSmigrod 4 3 daysTHRHHI (167): I scan as much as the camera will allow both interior and exterior. Typically i am 10-12 scans into the project before I get inside. Once inside I do everything, closets, garage, balconies, screened porches etc. For me it is about providing the best model for my client as it is also a reflection on their professionalism as an agent. I charge by the heated sqft of the house which, cost per sqft, may seen high but when you take in the whole model,...
What do you like best about the new Matterport Showcase? DanSmigrod 9 6 dayswhereareweat (158): That it works and can be fully used on an iPad! I saw a comment on the facebook group about the limited edit features not available on ipad/mobile version of showcase/workshop whatever! I responded with a solution there, so apologies for the duplicate, but thought i'd share with this wider group, was cool if you didn't already realize this was possible, saves lugging a laptop and just an iPad! if you select 'request desktop version' in Chrome...
Question of the Day: Is your trunk filled with light bulbs? (Should it be?) DanSmigrod 4 6 daysCharlesHH (80): Hi. I visited a spa yesterday and one area was very low blue lighting. Is it feasible to add a LED light on top of the MP camera that illuminates as the camera turns? Could be useful. Or would it be too harsh? Charles
Do you like homeowners present (that have many ???) when you are scanning? DanSmigrod 3 7 daysChemistrydoc (862): Generally no. Actually, no. Never. And take your dogs with you! KF
PRICING..Square footage or rooms? Seaweedsoul 8 7 daysSeaweedsoul (20): I don't think .10 sq ft is unreasonable if the space is a standard ranch style one level 3 bed 2 bath. But when it's 6 bedrooms, two stories, multiple stair cases, 4 bathrooms, 2 living room spaces, etc.. it gets to be a two hour job with great efficiency. I'm fast and efficient. Careful to not bump walls with tripod as I move from room to room. It would be faster if you did not need to keep the distance between scans between 5 - 7 feet. This...
Question of the Day: What to do with your Matterport Spaces if you Quit MP? DanSmigrod 6 13 daysron0987 (1082): No worry Dan I am only running 96 models on going bases. Have a great weekend. Ron
Question of the Day: Which iPad Holder do you use while Matterporting? DanSmigrod 7 17 daysHome3D (790): My favorite for three years is this simple handstrap case. I've purchased two of them, quick, easy, sturdy, light. LapWorks 9.7 iPad Pro Case with Soft Neoprene Handle with Apple Pencil Holder and Cap Pocket Stand - Adjustable Velcro and 360 Degree swiveling https://www.amazon.com/LapWorks-Neoprene-Handle-Pencil-Holder/dp/B01GF8RGZM
Question of the Day: Do you charge extra for a Single Property Website? DanSmigrod 3 23 daysWingman (221): Seems to me very cheap with domain registration unless they have everything interconnected so their system generates a page for each client automatically. And even that way I do not really see any value in something like this for a property seller. Only few buyers will use search engines to find properties for sale. Without a lot of investment in SEO and advertisement that website is going to be buried in 100s if not 1000s of listings coming...
Question of the Day: How is your ROI with Leica BLK360 + Matterport? DanSmigrod 2 28 daysMeshImages (498): I am a big fan of the leica blk360 integration. It makes Matterport a better product. My ROI is very good. In Germany we have a supplier where I can rent a Leica blk360 for EUR 700 per week (all in).
Question of the Day: Do you include some Matterport 360 Views at no charge? DanSmigrod 8 29 daysHome3D (790): Placing 360s into a MP dollhouse display is pretty easy. It's done in the Capture app prior to upload / rendering. Yes, you can go back later and place them and "re-upload/render" if you forgot to initially. I've done that! As long as it's the same model, MP does not charge you again. To place 360s so they will surround a MP dollhouse model, start in Capture by selecting the "360 View" tab. Select "Place on the...
Question of the Day: Silliest objection from a real estate agent? DanSmigrod 6 1 montheggardner (407): Personally I wouldn't even bother trying to convert him. He obviously doesn't have his clients' best interest at heart, and if they knew that was his attitude I highly doubt anyone would hire him. That's like saying I don't like to have photographs of inside the property in case it attracts thieves. His best bet is to try and sell a property with just words, that give very minimal details of what's inside the home...just in case! Absolutely...
Question of the Day: What's the silliest objection that you have heard? DanSmigrod 6 1 monthWingman (221): Thanks for your feedback. Why do you think that voice is expensive? It will just go as IP traffic with voice over IP technology and it will only cost an agent a mobile data. However it is not that much of data and coded it can generate a little traffic. It should not be a specially employed person, it can be an agent that has an app installed on his phone. When somebody calls from a tour it will just start loading it to an actual viewer...
Questions of the Day: Three Questions to Ask a Real Estate Agent DanSmigrod 2 1 monthftosolini (3): These are great client pain points to include in my elevator pitch, thanks!
GeoCV Floor Plan View versus Matterport Floor Plan View: Which do you like? DanSmigrod 4 1 monthChemistrydoc (862): GeoCV all the way!
Question of the Day: Do you include Highlights Reel and MatterTags in base? DanSmigrod 5 1 monthWonderdawg (234): Highlight reel always. Mattertags only if I’m linking one model to another.
Question of the Day-How should Matterport Spend $48,000,000 in new funding? DanSmigrod 10 1 monthWingman (221): Sorry I meant to say "I guess if they spend just a few a few $100 000s..." even though a few millions would be better :-)
Question of the Day: How much does Matterport charge for hosting beyond 300 DanSmigrod 5 1 monthWingman (221): It is here https://support.matterport.com/hc/en-us/articles/115015861668-FAQ-Hosting-Overages-Limits It is $19 monthly for every extra 50 tours over your plan limit.
Question of the Day: What disclaimer do you add to virtual staged images? DanSmigrod 9 1 monthWingman (221): It is easier for us in Australia because a property in most cases is pictured with a sellers' things shown and everybody knows that they are not buying a furnished property. So when and if it is virtually staged no need for any disclaimers.
How can I search forum topics? GlennTremain 5 2 monthsGlennTremain (1766): Thanks dan
A long-time Matterport Service Provider Writes [How should I reply?] DanSmigrod 5 2 monthsDanSmigrod (17974): Hi All, In reply to my question ... ➡️ "What problem are we trying to solve?" I received this additional info: "....seems as if we are being forced to buy the Theta given Zillow is rolling out their Zillow 3D. I already have clients asking for me to do it...so I guess I feel I have to. I was already looking for a cheaper and quicker alternative but with Zillow embracing the theta...seems like that's the...
Question of the Day: How much hosting do you include with Matterport Tour? DanSmigrod 8 2 monthsrzphotoman (1117): @Queen_City_3D, I hear you, but that's one of the reasons I advertise that only 6 months are free. If Matterport isn't in by business interest, after six months I can still charge them or delete the file.
Question of the Day: Which Matterport view do you use for the "Hero Image"? DanSmigrod 1 2 monthsDanSmigrod (17974): Hi All, WGAN Question of the Day for Thursday, 21 February 2019: Which Matterport view do you use for the "Hero Image"... Dollhouse or an Image from the Tour?

GSV vs. Matterport izoneguy 2 2 monthsMarc (85): To integrate a Matterport tour into GSV do you have to be a GSV "Trusted Photographer"? Yes... 2.) I see it costs $14.95 to integrate a Matterport tour into a Google "space". Is that cost for one year? Or as long as the Matterport tour is active? Not sure - don't use matterport but I'd suspect this is their one time publishing fee 3.) If a client has an existing GSV tour that was shot a few years ago - will the Matterport...

Question of the Day: What tool do you use to create your signature block? DanSmigrod 2 2 monthsHugoPerez (28): :heart:great info Dan!!!thanks!!
Matterport Versus GeoCV: Which 3D Tour viewing experience do you like Best? DanSmigrod 16 2 monthsangusnorriss (346): For me it’s got hallmarks of switching from Android to iPhone. Functionality aside it was all about UI amd UX and geocv wins. It’s not necessarily a price war for camera owners but what sells more when you go to town.
Question of the Day>Why is Matterport asking what discount you will accept? DanSmigrod 2 2 monthsChemistrydoc (862): @DanSmigrod Probably so that they can underbid this amount for additional savings on the backs of MSPs. Hate to be cynical, but what choice have they left us? Keith
Question of the Day: How are you using the Leica BLK360 with Matterport? DanSmigrod 7 2 monthsDanSmigrod (17974): Hi All, When you buy a Leica BLK360 using the Robotic Imaging Group affiliate link for @MikeChawaga ... you receive - free - the first 12 months of WGAN Standard Membership. Best, Dan
Question of the Day: What are the Pros and Cons of getting paid at closing? DanSmigrod 9 2 monthsDanSmigrod (17974): How about the price is based on 120 days payment and the agent can take a discount for paying either upfront or within 10 business days? The pricing is the same - either way - but the positioning is taking a discount rather than paying an additional fee. Your thoughts? Best, Dan
Question of the Day: What will Matterport announce at Inman Next Week? DanSmigrod 4 3 monthsrzphotoman (1117): I think they'll say "Apples coming out with a new 3D iPhone...we give up"

[Please start a new WGAN Forum discussion and tag: CES2019 Best, Dan
Question of the Day: What metrics do you track while doing Matterport scans DanSmigrod 2 3 monthsHome3D (790): I periodically check the Matterport statistics to check how many views the spaces are attracting. I must add that this is usually a depressing experience, showing a dozen or two views weekly, and I can’t help faulting Realtor.com and other aggregators for almost HIDING Matterport walkthroughs on their websites. As I’ve droned on regarding in the past, Realtor has shot themselves in the foot for two years. They’ve had a dramatic asset,...

Question of the Day: Do you promise Matterport in 24, 48 or other hours? DanSmigrod 8 4 monthsExpertise (164): We just say "Next Day". Quoting "24 hours" can get you in trouble if you're scanning/shooting stuff at 10 AM or earlier. :)

So far the results are coming out well, though it’s a big step down from Matterport. I’ll soon be offering a full report.

Question of the Day: Should Matterport Offer a MP Camera Trade-in Program? DanSmigrod 3 4 monthsimmersivespaces (898): I think the smarter move for Matterport is to reduce the price of the camera overall, thereby encouraging people to upgrade. I don't have a trade-in option for my Nikon, but I'm constantly watching for new cameras because they are necessary for my job, and the value of the new equipment is easy to recoup with jobs. The ROI on Matterport Cameras has dropped significantly in the last year, yet their pricing does not reflect that. I think they will...
Question of the Day: What does it mean that Matterport now has a new CEO? DanSmigrod 8 4 monthsVTLV (1500): We get a new CEO announced in other news sources and nothing from the company in my email this week. Not feeling very hopeful about this one. What ever remarks he's made about the current tour inventory clearly support what the shareholders want back for returns. Returns they're not getting after 5 years of investing from Camera and hosting fees.

Question of the Day: How to use Matterport + QR Code to get more business? DanSmigrod 5 5 monthsDanSmigrod (17974): @Tosolini A representative of Movilok emailed me some additional info about their solution ... Dan --- Hi Dan We are starting to use it and we have offered it to real estate companies.

Question of the Day: When do you use Matterport deep links? Example? DanSmigrod 2 5 monthsHelloPado (106): Hi AlL- For a large indoor/outdoor space I used Mattertags with deep links to navigate between areas of the grounds. A necessity as there are 43 acres here. Each mt in the starting tour takes you to one of the many spaces and another mt leads back to the starting point. I love mpembed and use it on most of my tours, however, using deep links seemed to revert all mpembed url's back to a matterport url. I've been unable to find a work...

Walking to a location outdoors not realizing the sensors are looking at the sun. Then take a shot and it's all blown out. Whoops.

Question of the Day: Got a tip for Beginners using WP3D Models? DanSmigrod 3 6 monthsRichierichks (676): One of my favorite parts of WP3D is the "Generic Iframe" model base. I embed everything into them and use the iframes and shortcodes to place them in other places in my site or customer's sites. I use a lot of custom overlays on the GSV that I generate from the Matterport model and I am able to embed the iframe of it into WP3D. This gives a consistent look to all of my tours and I still get the SEO benefit of the traffic from my...

Question of the Day: Do you include a Highlights Reel with Matterport scan? DanSmigrod 3 6 monthsDanSmigrod (17974): @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 6 monthsJohnLoser (281): 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.

Question of the Day: Do you charge a flat fee or recurring $$$ for GSV? DanSmigrod 3 7 monthsleonherbert (273): Flat fee, it is easier enough for a client to look up what Matterport charges and then in my eyes you look like a chump, since I am not adding a value added service past the scan, and I am not been charged by anyone to keep the tour up (YET)

Question of the Day: Will you place 360º Views in Matterport Workshop? DanSmigrod 3 7 monthsHome3D (790): I haven't tried the new Workshop placement system, but thought I would chime in on the past beta for placing external 360's in the model. The idea is great, but it's clunky and I've abandoned using it so far, for a different reason. In the past you have had to elect to engage the "new version" of showcase in order to add 360's. My problem is that I vastly prefer the "walkthrough" mode of the old showcase over the new...

Question of the Day: How is Hurricane Florence Affecting You? DanSmigrod 6 7 monthsTosolini (2760): I think it’d be a positive move by MP to create a Hurricane Florence account and let MSP upload models donated to people affected by the flooding. Imagine how many insurance claims there will be that may benefit of a scan. I bet several MSP would be open to donate some time if they are not being hit by the fees

After about 10 scans they have said "That's it? You are just going to move the camera and walk around it for the next 2 hours? They have always left. I did have one where the dog kept moving around and sleeping here or there. The owner was thrilled that Molly got to be parr of the scan.
Question of the Day: Pricing Strategy for Matterport to Google Street View? DanSmigrod 3 7 monthsChemistrydoc (862): 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: Why not offer Google Street View for business too? DanSmigrod 2 7 monthsRichierichks (676): That is what I have been focusing my business on. I have had pretty good luck with offering the MP and GSV to businesses. I've gotten way more referrals from Google Trusted Photographer's website than Matterport. In fact, I don't believe I have ever gotten any referrals from Matterport in the year and a half that I have owned the camera.
Question of the Day: What did you do for the Labor Day Holiday Weekend? DanSmigrod 2 8 monthsJohnLoser (281): Saturday, I relaxed with my wife, had breakfast out and went shopping.

The client then decided to cancel the order because Matterport took too long to produce the floor plan. :O

Question of the Day: Which Tripod & Head do you use with Matterport Camera? DanSmigrod 7 10 monthsMetroplex360 (9107): @PeterMcCready I've been screwing the Matterport Camera on my tripod since September 2015 - and I've tried 2 quick releases and just didn't see the advantage. I still have to take the quick release off when I put my DSLR on as I have a different head for that anyway (or I use my Alta Vanguard Pro 2+ for my DSLR)... DLEV is well made, I just don't really see the point. I can level my camera with a bubble in the shoe by moving my legs around.
Question of the Day>what's holding you back from buying a Matterport today? DanSmigrod 5 10 monthsRPOceanic (214): Already have a camera. No regrets- would do it again. Knew there'd be bumps in the road as an early adopter. Hosting fees? Really feel they should be nominal- unlimited. Seems to me it serves everyone in this partnership to be incentivized with the vision the more data gathered the better. Particularly when reading between the lines...

Question of the Day: One thing you would change about Matterport Workshop? DanSmigrod 10 10 monthsNetworker (157): WGAN Pros, How about the ability to change the colors of the white circles on the floor. Hence, maybe blue circles on a white marble tile floor?

Question of the Day: Other uses for Matterport Trim Tool? DanSmigrod 3 10 monthsMetroplex360 (9107): I only ever use it for outside scans. When inside, the window tool acts as a trim tool and there's rarely a reason to use it. As Liam points out, the trim tool CAN remove mesh on the inside of the model, and that can be accomplished by using two opposing trim markers. This may, however, create a hole in the tour which may result in a 'black hole' effect when moving through the affected area. Mileage may vary on this trick.
