From Shooting Spaces Podcast:

“In this weeks episode we sit down and talk with Zach Calhoon. Zach is the co-founder of CloudPano. CloudPano is a new software for creating and displaying your 360º images into an interactive virtual tour.   Brian had a chance to try out the software and the biggest features he enjoyed were the clean user-interface, ease of use and that the tours are VR headset ready.   Brian bought a VR headset on Amazon for just under $65 and it works perfectly with CloudPano.

It’s so easy now to do 360º images and if you do want to make it as easy as possible, you can pick up a Ricoh Theta for $350 and you have your 360º ready to go in under 2 minutes.  This is a great add-on service for your real estate photography clients with a very minimal investment.

Zach was also kind enough to offer all of our listeners a special promotion. To take advantage of the promotion, use the following link:

Virtual Tour Profits: How To Hire Out Your Job and Scale Your Business

“Transcript of this Video”

Hey guys Zach here. In this video, we’re going to discuss “Hiring”. And why having a team will make your business that much better. 

So, “Why should you hire?”

Well, you need to have in your mind a comprehensive plan in place to be able to hire people that you have trained to go location and shoot the 360 assets. The reason for this is very simple. As you get bigger, have more clients coming in, have customers asking you to constantly to do things, you can’t be in 2 places at once. So, if you think long term, you have a small team of people who can go and shoot the 360 for you. Once you have those assets and they are good, you can post process, you can create your tour on your own software, and you have someone to do that as well. Then your tour business becomes a portfolio company and as an entrepreneur or other things, maybe ramp up some of your marketing and take some big decisions over there. But if you don’t have a team, you’ll be constantly chasing the next deal while you’re doing your current deal and it’s going to become a drag on you and can be tiring. So, if you think long term, “Who can I hire? Or “How can I hire?” to have the most success possible.

Well, I give you the answer. 360 shooting is easy.

1. Put the camera in the center of the room in the correct and appropriate type of stand and then,
2. you walk out of that room,
3. press a button and in about 5 seconds later the app or the camera itself will take the photo with high quality resolution and it will look beautiful and,
4. you come back in and move your stand in the center of
the next room and take the shot. 

For example, I shot a home recently that took me because I was in a hurry it took me 15 minutes to get to the whole house take all the photos and then get out of there. The realtor, when I was there, she was very surprised and she goes,

“You already done?” 

And I said “I’m already done” 

and she said “okay.”

So, I went off, processed the photos, and I was done. 
Here’s the thing, if you can make hundreds if not almost thousands of dollars in a short few minutes, you’re going to be in a good position but even better if you can hire someone to go out and shoot those shots. Someone who works for you part time, contractual, and you sent them out there to do those tours. Now, you’re just “Boss” man. You sit behind the computer, you sit behind your desk, or you just go hang out with your family, or go to the thing that you want as your team goes out and shoots tour, for tour, for tour, for tour and you just manage the money and this is called an actual entrepreneurial portfolio business.

Virtual Tour Profits: How To Quote Faster and Speed Up Your Business

“Transcript for this Video”

Hey guys, Zack here. In this video, I’m going talk about how to automate or speed up your coding process based on the scope of work you provide in 360 virtual tours.

Okay so, when it comes to being a local service provider there’s nothing slows you down more than creating a custom quote for every single person that comes to your door or wants your service. They see if someone could say, “hey, I heard about this tour hey I want to tour from you guys what do you charge?”

The question needs to already be answered in one pricing spreadsheet. Some of you already have built nor you have done you always, always even you know it doesn’t even matter ask questions back to them say,

“Hey, sure I give you a quote how many floor plans do you have and how many amenities?

That’s an educated question and we’ll be able to answer that question.

“Oh! we have nine have floor plans and we have you know six amenities”.

“Okay cool, I mean it’s how many units do you guys have? Okay, great 316, awesome, what’s your occupancy right now?”

So, like right now you’re asking these questions are all very relevant to that customer in this case I’m talking about multifamily luxury apartment complexes which who you should be targeting. And so, when they ask you what your pricing is don’t say yes on your quote that doesn’t feel customized to me I don’t feel like they’re cared for so, even though this is really important to have your pricing already figured out which I have one two and three tiers based on you know how many floor plans how many amenities that they have and a la carte options that they can pick from and choose from there on their own it’s all there on the pricing sheet. I still want to ask those questions so first;

A. Ask questions.

B. Be able to send over the pricing sheet based on their answers, right? If an apartment complex has 100 units or has hundred fifty units or versus a part complex who has 316 units, they have a budget bro. 5% occupancy increase is a big difference to them. 5% over here at the hundred units or fifty units it’s much difference it’s not as economically impactful to spend marketing dollars there, right?

C. So, you can kind of gauge your pricing based on that. If a prospect calls you because he saw your tour loved it, he’s going to probably buy from you if the price is right. So, whenever you sent or so have kind of those things in mind you’re saying out pricing but also to this makes quoting easier for you as the business owner.

Down the road whenever you are hiring people, when you’re hiring assistants, when you’re getting administrative help the last thing you need to do is be worried about every quote every little thing the hope is that you have a high volume of leads coming in you’re saying that a high volume of quotes and most those quotes are pretty much the same. If you have that if you productize your service in that way then it makes it very easy and the customers has to just decide, right? Rather than you making the perfect customized quote and having one price customer sometimes you may think all those guys probably going to be worth you know $2,500 bucks if max and then you send them out you know that third tier just in case they want it that $5,000 quote and they bite, well shoot that’s a pleasant surprise, right?

So, think this way, productize and automate your coding process. The way you automate your coding process is have a simple 1, 2, 3, customer chooses pricing to your concept. This shortens down the window and time of you quoting it allows you to do more for your service and grow your business more and think less about the exact quote for that particular person. Let them choose it, you don’t have to, so you can scale, alright? That’s it for this video of how to automate your service by productizing it in a simple 1, 2, 3 step way.
