WHY USE SMART PROPERTY TOURS?
SEE HOW THEY CAN HELP YOU
VIDEO MARKETING BENEFITS
Estate agency listings that include video receive 403% more enquiries than those without and 73% of homeowners are more likely to instruct an agent who offers property videos.
STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD
Differentiate yourself in this crowded marketplace with practical and regularly updated video content.
Very often the tours will update themselves automatically and in situ as a result of an agent making routine changes such as replacing photos or amending features in a listing using her own system.
Your brand including animated logo, colour scheme, tag line and contact information is displayed prominently on social media, the portals and your website.
VIDEO HELPS YOUR SEO
Your website is 50 times more likely to be on the first page of Google if it includes video and social media becomes much more attractive when it contains video.
IDEAL FOR SOCIAL MEDIA
Benefit from having plenty of additional content to post on social media where the tours will auto play and attract lots of likes, favourable comments and shares.
Our High Definition video tours are entertaining, complete and informative. They feature text captions as well as the voice and so they work even when the sound is off.
BEST OF BREED

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Please contact us if you have any questions remaining after reading this FAQ
WHY SHOULD I USE VIDEO AND NOT JUST PHOTOS?
Human beings are attracted to movement and so video gets far more attention than still photos and that’s why globally, internet video traffic will be 82 percent of all consumer Internet traffic by 2021.
BUT YOUR TOURS AREN’T REALLY VIDEO ARE THEY?
Our tours transform your existing still photos into real, moving HD mp4 video tours which auto play on social media, enhance your portal listings and embed in your website.
They have the same SEO boosting characteristics as other videos and people like to watch them.
WHY DOES MY VIDEOGRAPHER SAY THESE TOURS DON’T WORK?
Videographers need to justify the cost for their videos which cost £100-£2000. We can provide stats that show that our tours get lots of plays and are well watched which means that they do work and are good for your business.
WHY SHOULDN’T I USE THINGS LIKE THE FREEBIE FACEBOOK SLIDESHOW FEATURE?
Because it will take you time to do it and it will only work in the one place like Facebook and without sound or branding etc. It’s better if you have a single solution that works everywhere.
WHY SHOULDN’T I DO IT MYSELF USING A PAID FOR PROGRAM OR SERVICE?
Because it will still take you time to do it and so you may end up paying for a service that is not well used. We think it’s best if you focus on selling houses and leave the tour production to us.
WE USE A SIMILAR SERVICE TO MAKE OUR OWN TOURS BUT WE DON’T HAVE TIME TO DO IT WELL.CAN YOU HELP?
We can probably work out a deal where we produce the tours for the same cost or less and you won't need to spend any time doing it at all.
Have you got a feature that I've been offered by another vendor?
HD upgrades, Presentation applications, TV channels, etc.. We have the same or better.
Please ask them if they have text captions as well as voice or provide statistics reports, reminders when a tour has not been used or automated updates that are driven by the changes that you make in your own system and not using yet another portal.
DO ALL MY PROPERTIES HAVE TO HAVE SMART PROPERTY TOURS?
With planned pricing we can also apply filters that restrict which properties receive tours. e.g. All properties other than plots of land and new builds that are over £60k. With ad hoc pricing we only produce tours that you ask for.
HOW DO I ADD TOURS TO THE PORTALS AND MY WEBSITE?
Paste the Vimeo link that we send you by email into the Virtual Tour field in your system. We will help if you can't find it.
HOW DO I ADD TOURS TO MY SOCIAL MEDIA CHANNELS?
It’s the same process as posting photos except you will use our 'mp4’ video file instead of your ‘png’ or ‘jpg’ image file. We have detailed instructions if required and if you do need any support then we will provide it gladly.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CHARGES?
Apart from the fixed price for each tour there are no other charges. If a tour needs to be updated for any reason such as the photos having been updated then we do it for free and usually automatically, unprompted.
WHERE CAN THE TOURS BE PLAYED?
Websites, Portals, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, offline or online on smartphones, tablets and PCs, even in loops on video screens in branch – That’s Basically on anything that supports video.
SHOULD I HAVE VOICE TOURS?
Yes, provided that it does not cost a premium. Our tours feature both text captions and a voice so they cater for everyone, regardless of whether the sound is on or not.
WHAT ARE THE BILLING ARRANGEMENTS?
We send itemized VAT invoices soon into each new month for the tours we produced in the previous month so our agents can see which tours they are being charged for.
DO I HAVE TO ENTER A CONTRACT?
No. Our customers use our service because they want to and not because they have to.
