Hi All,

Moving the cell phone listings discussion from here to this new WGAN Forum discussion topic (below).

tech is there and ready.
why no customers?

from the point of view of marketing of the tech, or us vendors-

it could be because the end user/customer does not know of its existence
(or they do know, but its not front and center in their mind)
so one form of marketing is making them aware such tech exists and why they need it, and keep
bombarding them with this reminder.

as opposed to a tech/service that they know about something already -eg, a lawyer,
and they know how and when to search for it)

from point of view of the realtor-
I am already selling properties with my mobile phone, why do i need to spend more for virtual tours?
(especially since covid is now on a decline)
So they dont take it up until others take it up, until it becomes more mainstream.

But also, consider yourself in a good position.
You are the only one in Buffalo area doing this.
Limited Supply. you COULD price a bit more advantageously.
If this were popular, the low barrier to entry would mean other people coming into your market
and doing low pricing.

Heck, where I live, there are people who shoot for free (using 360 camera) and charge only for hosting.

You're post Offered encouragement for what it's worth.

For residential properties over here is another problem arising - privacy.

More and more people simply don’t want their private property to be shown in detail on the internet - buyers and sellers. And I can partly understand this - this is why I completely skipped the residential business.
