Distribution/posting of tours

I am now having more clients leaving me for the larger companies even though they like my work because the larger companies offer automatic posting of their tours to multiple sites such as zillow and trulia and also because they receive weekly statistic reports showing the views and where they are coming from.

I am really hoping that I can stay in this business. I love doing virtual tours, but am struggling financially and losing business faster than I am gaining it right now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much!
Still learning the ropes.

Hoosier3D,

There are services out there that does that, but that's what they are "Services" EP is not a Service, but a Product.

The difference is that "these Service" providers generally have a proprietary format thay they use to post thier tours. I know becuause I have used 2 of them

RealTours and VrGuild which both utilize proprietary systems that create thier tours using your images. Then they Post to those multi-sites.But these services are either a "Purchase Credits" or Pay as you go. But mostly they are a Purchase Credit and use the tours created as a debit system

EasyPano's TourWeaver nor PanoWeaver are not such a service.

Why don't you offer this service to your clients too!

by giving the client an optional option to post a classified ad in one or two famous realestate classifieds websites in your country.

I couldn't agree with you more but I use a couple other products that create fantastic tours like TW, but they too do not post to multiple sites. Because they are not a Service Provider, they just provide the means to create the tour packages.

What I want is a SOLID tour making package that works, then maybe add that feature. But again the companies that provide these SERVICES are located in the United States.. alas another problem...
