A Virtual Tour as easy as 1,2,3,4

leave a comment

Virtual tours are becoming increasingly sought after as effective marketing material. With the realization of their online value for potential customers, many businesses are now investing in virtual tours. With the sudden growth comes misunderstandings and uncertainties about what you can expect from a virtual tour company. As an experienced and highly regarded virtual tour company operating in the Sheffield, Derbyshire and Peak District areas we wanted to help customers get the most from their virtual tours, so below are 4 questions to ask your virtual tour company before hiring.

1) What equipment will you use for the virtual tour?

It’s important to ensure the company you choose is experienced, there are a lot of amateurs jumping into the business and if you don’t use the right equipment you won’t get the high definition that is needed for a virtual tour. Ideally, a DSLR camera should be used in order to get the image quality that’s necessary. A gimmicky camera will not produce the same level of quality and will not impress your potential clients so make sure the virtual tour company is using high quality and professional equipment.

2) Can I see some of your previous virtual tours?

Find out how many virtual tours the company has done before and take a look at their previous work. You can often find some examples of the companies work on their website so it is definitely worth taking a look. You can get an idea of how experienced the company is and by reviewing some of their work you can know the standard of the tours they offer. Pay attention to detail as if you were reviewing your own business’s virtual tour.

Not sure what to look for in their tour examples? Below are some top tips:

  • Lighting is very important for photos and this remains true for virtual tours. The lighting needs to be right otherwise you miss important details or your eye is drawn elsewhere.
  • Transition between rooms. You want the transitions to be smooth, it shouldn’t be clunky or feel unnatural.
  • Are your eyes being drawn to the right features?
  • Unwanted features. Are there features in the tour that take away from the experience? e.g. bins, faces, personal information etc.

3) What rooms will be photographed?

It is important to ask this so you can be clear on what will be included in the tour. This is an important question as sometimes photographers pick and choose which rooms to include, this can be for good reason and produce an effective end product but if the photographer isn’t experienced it could just be them trying to simplify the project.  

4) Should the business be empty for the tour?

The virtual tour company will be able to offer suggestions on whether staff or clients should be around for the virtual tour. More often than not, the virtual tour is more effective when there are no people so the focus can be on what your business has to offer customers.  There can be occasions where there are benefits to having people around so it’s definitely something to discuss with the photographer.

If you are in need of a virtual tour company and you are based around the Sheffield, Derbyshire and Peak District areas contact, 360 Virtual View for more information today.

Taking a closer look

A virtual tour is basically a simulation of a location created using photography, 360 panoramas with the photographs carefully stitched together and narration, sound effects or text added in. This allows potential customers to see and experience your location before actually going there, giving them a sense of the location. The customer can explore the location as they’d like by clicking or dragging on the screen. This interactive take can benefit a range of locations from restaurants and hotels to estate agents to theatres. Hospitals have even used them to make kids feel less nervous about visiting the children’s ward. The goal of an interactive tour is to create a realistic representation of the establishment to truly immerse the customer in the experience.

Benefits of getting a virtual tour

Increase Exposure

An interactive tour catches people’s attention, it generates interest and impresses potential customers. The virtual tour will bring more traffic to your website and your establishment will appear on Google Street View.

Packed full of visual information

A photograph simply does not do your business justice; a 3D tour immerses the viewer and allows them to appreciate what you have to offer.

Around the clock “open house”

Once your virtual tour has been created it will go online and can work its magic whenever someone goes on your website. It is a revolutionary marketing tool that is available for your potential customers 24/7.

Cost effective

By having this feature you are likely to increase sales as the more information you offer, the more confident the customer will be in your product. A virtual tour 360 is a cost-effective way to increase traffic to your website, increase sales and help grow your business.

Interactive and engaging

A potential customer will spend more time on your website if you offer a virtual tour. It separates your business from the competition and brings a unique interaction between your business and your customer.

Why use a virtual tour company?

On first glance, you may think you’ll be able to create your own virtual reality tour without going through a company but this is a very difficult thing to achieve. A virtual tour 360 requires professional photography, editing and mapping in order to work effectively. A virtual tour company will often use specialist cameras and software to create the finished tours you see. In fact, if you work with Sheffield virtual tour provider, 360 Virtual View, your tours will be made with 4K photography meaning they will be of the highest quality.

Maximising Skip Waste

Are you planning a clear out and thinking about hiring a skip? Skip hire offers a convenient and simple solution to waste disposal, below we’ll take a look at ways you can maximize the amount of waste you can fit in your skip.

Break Larger Pieces Down

Larger objects can take up more than their fair share of space but by simply breaking them up into smaller pieces where possible you can make sure there’s enough space for all the items. People often throw the large items into the skip first and then are left struggling when they’ve run out of space. Use this hack to avoid this.

Pack the Lighter Objects First

If you pack the lighter and smaller objects first and then the heavier items on top you’ll find you have more space. This method of packing allows the smaller items to become more compact thanks to the weight and pressure of the items above as you pile them into the skip. This means there will be more space on the top of the skip for the larger items.

Start with the Right Size Skip

When you decide to book skip hire, it is important to consider the different sizes of skip available. If you are unsure and looking for a Sheffield skip or Rotherham skip then you can speak to one of the Mr Rubble experts who can help to ensure you choose the best skip for the amount of waste you have. In other areas, contact your local skip company and they will be more than happy to assist you. If you are really torn between two sizes, always upsize!

Why Bother?

By using these tips, you can ensure you get the most out of your hired skip. This means you can not only save money that could’ve been spent on an extra skip but you can also make sure you get the clear-out done and dusted quickly and easily.

Benefits of Renting a Skip

You may not be sure if hiring a skip is right for your project or clearout, below are some of the benefits. Skips are a fantastic and affordable way to make home clearouts, renovations and redesigns easier.
