Shoutout Video Transcript

- Hello, my name is Daniel Brown, and I am the representative director of Meidansha Kabusikigaisha, which is the Japanese name for our company, which is Meidansha Incorporated, based in Osaka, in Japan. Our company started shortly before incorporation as two or three members.

We were scanning amongst other things, BnB, or minpaku as it's known here in Japan in the Kyoto area, but soon the pandemic hit, so, we branched out and managed to find a number of new kinds of clients. Amongst them, companies that had previously been running events, in-person events, but were looking for new ways to do them online.

This threw out as a whole heap of new challenges. They required functionalities and things that were just not possible with Matterport as it stood, at the time, in 2020. So from there, we started searching online for solutions, any kind of solution we could possibly find, Matterport or otherwise, to meet our new clients' needs.

We'd take a search, how to do, for instance, an index or a search bar inside a 3D virtual tour, and we came across this pattern where we found that we'd be linked to this Forum, and it was the same Forum every time, It was the We Get Around Network.

So after a time, we registered in the Network, became a WGAN Fan Club member, and then a WGAN Standard Member. I can tell you, being a Member of this Network was probably the best business decision I ever made from a creative research angle, and also a marketing angle, since becoming a Spatial Capture Technician.

Basically, if I was to sum up the best things that we got from the We Get Around Network, they would be like this. Number one, there is the creative research angle. We managed to find new ways to promote Matterport spaces using Matterport's SDK Partners, all of which we found on the We Get Around Network.

For instance, our most used platform to date, MPEmbed, has helped us to get clients in Japan such as Suntory, the famous company that makes whiskey, and also Daikin, a major air conditioning company; one of the biggest manufacturers of air conditioners in the world.

These clients only chose to use our creative work because we were using MPEmbed, which we had in turn found on the We Get Around Network. Also, through the We Get Around Network, we found out about CAPTUR3D. CAPTUR3D's work with Google's ARCore, and linking it with Matterport's digital twin technology, is an amazing game-changer. We would not have known about it if we had not seen it on the We Get Around Network.

We have used this technology to display to many businesses, and look forward to potential jobs with this in the future. Outside of Matterport, the creative angle that we earned by joining the We Get Around Network was learning about 3DVista; learning how to make DSLR 360 photos; learning how to do the same with drones; and the potential for new work by using them.

It was that particular item that caused me to want to get my drone license. And then from there, new work avenues have been created. If I was to sum up, the wealth of information that I have received about new ideas and new things in the We Get Around Network has been so beneficial that when times have changed and a particular line of work dries up, the We Get Around Network provides me with a new angle to sell that work again, or even a new line of work to sell.

Just selling Matterport on its own is a really uphill task, but linked with things like drone photography; linked with things like SDK technology; linked with other things like 3D models, all merged together; the package you offer becomes not just that of of a Matterport Technician or a Matterport Service Partner, it becomes that of a 3D Creator.

You can learn these techniques and these technologies by staying with the We Get Around Network and Dan Smigrod. The second angle I got from the We Get Around Network was a much more directly profitable one.

At first, I thought joining a group which is predominantly North American was not going to bring me new work in Japan, but I was wrong. Soon after joining the Network, I got contact from companies in the USA who wanted to scan hotels in Japan. I was ecstatic.

It came at a time when our regular lines of business were drying up, just as the hotel industry in Japan was starting to come back again. The third and final angle is more of a camaraderie kind of thing.

We live in a very fractured world, with different industries and people who find it difficult to communicate with each other, especially being that we live so close but seem to be so far apart. But one thing I have noticed is that we all, in different countries, seem to share the same issues, and we can talk about them on this Network, issues like what to do as Photographers, or 3D Capture Technicians, and so on.

This is a very new industry, and we are all coming across new and big hurdles that probably have never existed before in other industries, and at the same time, we have no one to talk about them with except each other.

I found that this Network has been a really great source of inspiration from looking at what other successful businessmen are doing, and also technicians, of course, and creators.

At the same time, it has been a great source of support when I have had problems that I have needed to solve, I've found that there's a more than willing community who's willing to offer their input, their options, and their experiences in the past.

And all of this has only been made possible because somebody put the infrastructure in place to make that happen; and that person was Dan Smigrod at the We Get Around Network. Thank you very much for your time.

Goodbye.

Video: We Get Around Network Shoutout by Chris Kivi, Owner of RealtyPIX360 | www.360buffalo.com | WGAN Forum Member: @GETMYVR

Transcript

- Chris Kivi, Owner of RealtyPix360, located in Buffalo, New York, gives a shout out to the We Get Around Network.

- Hey everybody, my name's Chris Kivi, and I run a company in Buffalo, NY called RealtyPix360. And in 2017 I picked up a brand new Matterport Pro2 3D Camera.

I was one of the first 300 in the world to do so, and as I navigated through what I was supposed to do, I was fortunate enough to find the WGAN Forum and the We Get Around Network that was created by Dan Smigrod.

I can honestly tell you that that website and that Forum has been absolutely 100% instrumental for me acquiring a lot of the information that kept me excited about this business, and there was a time when I was going to give it all up, but I went back to the Forum, and I realized there was more information, there was more interest about what we do. So my hat's off to Dan, I'm in this business probably because of you. Have a great day.

Video: We Get Around Network Shoutout by Dave Avilla, Owner of Prestige Property Media in Gilroy, California | www.PrestigePropertyMedia.com | WGAN Forum Member: @Dataventurer


Transcript

- Hi, I'm Dave Avilla.

I live in Northern California and I've been a member of We Get Around Network Forum for about three or four years now.

I first encountered it when I was starting to do 360 photos with Zillow 3D Home Tours, and I've had three benefits.

First benefit has been, it's a great source of information.

There's been lots of times I've had questions, post 'em up on the board and sometimes almost immediately I'll get an answer back. It's great.

Second benefit is it's an opportunity to give back because there's been times when people had questions and I had some answers and I was able to contribute that.

The third benefit is Dan Smigrod is a diligent and focused manager of the site and there's lots of information that he comes across that he posts up that I would not have known about otherwise, and it's very helpful.

So he's kind of a watchdog for all of us on the Network and he's very helpful in terms of providing that kind of information that we may not have in our scope.

- Hey there, this is Justice Smith with Queen City 3D in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.

And this is a shout-out to the We Get Around Network, and particularly Dan who organizes and runs that site.

It's a great community. I've been a part of it for several years now, and whenever I have a question, particularly for me in regards to Matterport use or 3D plugins, or any of that sort of thing, that's the first place I turn because I find that the support of the community is amazing.
