Hi All,

A Member of the Forum reached out to me with this backstory and question.

How would you reply?




I was reading the thread about subcontracting for someone else and [another Pro has expressed interest in engaging me].

I'm [a Matterport Service Provider] in [location].

I have really been focusing on shooting businesses although I still do some real estate.

I was recently contacted via my website of a photographer in [location] looking for me to scan [location].

I'd love to be able to contract that out, just the shoot. I'd edit, add tags ect.. and take a small percentage but - and this is key to my business model - I'd charge businesses monthly/annual hosting fees. So all I'd need is someone to shoot it and upload it to my account, which I have never done. I

t seems straight forward but I'm sure I'm missing out on some critical issues. Besides qualifying the shooter and the client, what other concerns/issues should I be considering?

Here's what I would write ...

Hello [redacted]

Thanks for reaching out. About your questions:

1. Outsourcing - You can Find a Matterport Pro here (or PM me if you don't locate one in your area. We'll find one!
2. Non-Compete - You'll want a non-compete agreement. See the We Get Around Sample Forms Library
3. Publishing to your Matterport account - Add the Pro as a Collaborator by giving them a guest email address that you have set up as a collaborator. This email address will only have access to one Folder that they can publish the model. This way, they can not see any of your other Matterport Spaces
4. Pricing - Yes. Encourage you to charging monthly/annual hosting. We use Stripe and MoonClerk to do this (Tip: How to do automatically monthly billing)
4. Quoting - I could imagine that your perspective client wants a "buy-out" of the Matterport Space (and published to their Matterport Cloud Hosting) Double-check on the scale and scope of the work before quoting. While you might not get this project, for future business, I like where you are headed ...

Please let me know how it goes.

By the way, if you let me know which Pro is reaching out to you, I may be able to add some value to your discussions.
