Hi All,

If you are competing with low a price Matterport Service Provider in your market ...

$0.05 a SQ FT: Matterport 3D/VR + MatterTags
Lowest cost Matterport 3D provider in the US
Is $150 the New Normal?
Is this pricing ridiculous?
Matterport Business Development in the UK?
Matterport now pricing their own 3D scan cost
Why I am participating in the pilot
Is Matterport a Commodity?
How to Complete with a Low Priced Competitor
Matterport Pricing Scans under $0.06 SQ FT
Is it time to drop prices?
Dropping like a Rock? More like a Meteor!

6. When you buy our bundle (2D floor plans, video, GIF, MatterTags)

27. When you buy the VR version

If the Realtor is REALLY good looking ... and I mean ... REALLY good looking ...

nevermind.

I'm actually doing #28 --

28. When you buy a Google Street View (Matterport to Google Street View)

I's another way to sell a Matterport Tour if the client is more interested in GSV than Matterport. They get an amazing presentation for their website, and GSV.

@DanSmigrod - Their website shows a few wonderful edited images up front -- but when you dig deeper, the image gallery is a mix of lovely drone photos and unedited Matterport Snapshots.

They need to universally kill off their ridiculous glow CSS on their text and perhaps quickly fix their portfolio page considering their mailers are generating site activity and people are seeing this:




Quick review of the photogallery reveals:

The images on the homepage, etc. look very different from the gallery. The gallery seems to be all Matterport Snapshots. Which makes sense from a marketing angle -- discount the tour by selling the snapshots.

A few gems in that gallery:







I do not think it's a bad idea -- but in under 60 seconds, that last shot could be turned from what it is to something a bit better:




In all, I wish Pinnacle the best of luck in their marketing -- but I think that it's a disservice to their own brand image and their clients for them to not post process the snapshots. Especially those that are on their gallery.

Hi All,

I spoke with a new Matterport Service Provider earlier today (16 Jan 2018) whom let me know that he is offering free Matterport Spaces 3D Tours in exchange for a video testimonial. That solves a few challenges for the Pro:

1. gaining experience scanning
2. getting new Matterport clients (the MSP already offers photography, video and aerial)
3. getting video testimonials for the website

How are you using free to achieve a goal?

Best,

Dan
