    Residential Listing Photography

    Everything begins with great photography. We use the same professional grade equipment that we use on our web development projects. Here’s what you can expect:

    • Up to 30 shots; (larger packages are available upon request).
    • Your photos are available for download and posted to your Landing Page within 24 hours of shot completion.
    • Shots are taken in high definition and resized to any standard size that you request.
    • All shots are size & color optimized for best results and fastest site loading.
    • Backups of your photos are kept for one year after shot date.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY

    • What Areas Do You Cover? I am based in Arlington, Texas and cover the DFW Metroplex.
    • How Quickly Can You Get This Done? – I recognize that time is important with a new listing. When we speak, we will arrange the quickest time that works for all parties.
    • What Kind Of Equipment Do You Use? –  I primarily use a Panasonic Lumix G7 for both image and video. It’s a wonderful camera and shoots in 4k (think very hi-definition).
    • Are You A Professional Photographer? – Short Answer: For the scope of Listing Photography, yes. I use professional equipment and a complete suite of image editing and optimizing tools. As a Web Developer and Digital Marketer, I routinely take photos in conjunction with the web projects I work on for clients. However, I don’t shoot personal photography, (family photos, weddings, graduation photos, etc). I limit my work to people and things related to my web design & marketing projects. All my photos are taken with an eye towards how they will look online.
    • Do You Shoot Video Also? Yes; Again, the video I shoot is in conjunction with the web marketing clients I work with. I mostly shoot video with the Panasonic Lumix G7. I can also provide custom intro’s & end screens for all your videos.
    • What Do You Mean “Shots Are Optimized”? Optimizing in “web speak” means that I losslessly compress your photos so that they load faster when people visit your web page. You will never be able to tell by sight, but their file size can be up to 90% smaller. Remember that faster load times also helps your search engine performance.
    Interactive Videos

    Imagine a New Listing Video that becomes highly shareable on Social Media. This helps you to promote the property and also generate more leads from both buyers and sellers. It becomes a great point-of-difference between you and every other agent in town.

    The Video also contains “live elements” that allow the users to interact directly with the video. You can actually generate direct phone calls from the video itself. A couple of example videos are listed below. Please note that since these are Demo’s, there is no live phone number or email connected to these.

    Example 1 – Virtual Tour

    Example 2 – New Listing Announcement

    Each video will have your logo as a watermark and multiple touch-points that will allow the user to take whatever action you want them to.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT INTERACTIVE VIDEOS

    • What If I Already Have Photos Of A Property, Can You Use Those? Yes, but we can’t guarantee the quality since we didn’t take the shots. Generally, we want to start with Hi Definition images so we can get the best rendering. If your pics are high def, then it should be OK.
    • How Quickly Can You Get This Done? – Normally within 24 – 48 hours of getting the photos and the verbiage you want to highlight.
    • How Would I Post This On My Facebook, Pinterest Or Web Site? –  We supply you with the needed links and code. Don’t worry, we will walk you through this. And, there are a couple of options depending on what’s easiest for you.
    • Can The Video Be Updated? – Yep, it can. We make your requested changes, upload the changes to our server, and that’s it. You don’t have to do anything else. So, as an example – If you had a property that had a price reduction, or was just renovated, etc, we could add those changes easily and quickly.
    • How Is This Video “Live”?  – This is a server platform that has all the video elements you select (pictures, text, links, etc) listed. When someone clicks your “video”, they are really asking the server to play all the selected elements within the parameters they were set up with. So, really, you are playing a series of files and commands that renders in real time for the viewer.
    • Can These Be Posted On Youtube? Short Answer: Yes. You have a couple of choices (and some recommendations from us) if you use Youtube as one of your marketing platforms. If this is you, give us a quick call and we will explain it all.
    Interactive Images

    You can get interactive images like this example that allow you to link to additional data, images, or other websites. You choose the image you want to make interactive, and what you want highlighted and we make it happen. And, these interactive images are also able to be posted to Social Media and other websites of your choice.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT INTERACTIVE IMAGES

    • Can These Be Updated? Yes, absolutely.
    • How Quickly Can You Get This Done? – Normally within 24-48 hours of your selection.
    • How Would I Post This On My Facebook, Pinterest Or Web Site? –  We supply you with the needed links and code. Don’t worry, we will walk you through this. And, there are a couple of options depending on what’s easiest for you.
    • Can The Images Be Updated? – Yep, they can. We make your requested changes, upload the changes to the server, and that’s it. You don’t have to do anything else. So, as an example – If you had a property that had a price reduction, or was just renovated, etc, we could add those changes easily and quickly.
    • Will These Work On Mobile Phones?  – Yes, they work across all devices.
    Landing Page

    In “web speak”, a landing page is any web page that a visitor can arrive at or “land” on. So, what makes a landing page different from a website and why would you benefit from one? For the purposes of marketing, a landing page is a standalone web page distinct from your primary website that has been created to accomplish one or two focused objectives. By limiting the choices available to your landing page visitors, you are better able to get them to take the action you want them to take.

    Our landing pages are designed to promote visitors into reaching out to you for more information thereby becomming a viable prospect. Once you have their contact information, you can incorporate them into your normal marketing efforts.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT LANDING PAGES

    • Will My Landing Page Use My Logo & Colors? – Yes, absolutely. We will create a complimentary style to your current website.
    • How Quickly Can You Get This Done? – Normally within 24-48 hours of getting your information.
    • What Will My Landing Page Be Used For? –  We will use your Landing Page to post your new listings, links to your website, videos and interactive images. All of this is designed to promote a prospect to reach out to you with their contact information.
    • Can The Information On My Landing Page Be Updated? – Yes, absolutely. We make your requested changes, upload the changes to the server, and that’s it. You don’t have to do anything else.
    • Will These Work On Mobile Phones?  – Yes, they work across all devices.
    Geo Tagged Photos
    Geotagging is the process of adding the location (latitude and longitude) to an image. You may have heard that it’s not a good idea to have this kind of data hangning around the internet… For your personal data, that would be correct. But when it comes to marketing properties (and getting them indexed in Google and other search engines) having the  location data is very important. That’s why we add Geotags to all static images we list on your landing page. We do remove all other EXIF metadata from all images.
    Pre Made Social Media Posts & Display Ads

    From your photos, we can create 16 common digital and social media ad sizes. Shown here is an example of an ad designed to fit in virtually any digital advertising platform. If you have a current posting “style” or look, we will emulate that as much as possible.

    dvls-ad-composite

    Here is a Social Media post formatted to fit in Facebook without being cropped. All other Social Media platforms are supported as well.

    FAQs

    Frequently asked questions

    I DON'T LIVE IN YOUR COVERAGE AREA, BUT I AM INTERESTED IN THE VIDEOS & OTHER SERVICES; CAN YOU HELP?
    Probably. We have many Digital Marketing clients across the country. Just give us a call or drop us an email and tell us what you are looking for. We will work hard to make it happen for you.
    I MIGHT NEED SOMETHING A BIT DIFFERENT; CAN YOU HELP?
    We will if we can; but either way, we will tell you upfront. There are some quality standards that we do not deviate from; So the best way to get your question answered is to give us a call. We’re friendly.. 🙂
    WHEN WILL I BE BILLED?
    We will arrange for payment before we show up for the photo shoot. Once we have an established relationship with a person or company, we can work with you on different options if needed.
    WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
    Cash, check or credit card. I will send you an invoice so that you have some documentation for your records. We are an Accredited member of the Better Business Bureau with an A+ rating. If you’re a good baker, I might accept my weight in cookies… But careful, you would likely lose money on this one!
    WHAT HAPPENS WHEN MY LISTING IS SOLD OR EXPIRES?
    This would probably only be an issue in the case of landing pages. I will keep yours up for a minimum of 30 days so you can use it to generate as much additional traffic as possible. Should you have a property that doesn’t sell, the landing pages expire at the end of 90 days. If this occurs, we will call you and try to work something out. We never just turn off a page without talking to you first.
    HOW SECURE IS MY PAYMENT INFO?

    Your payment info is secure. In the case of credit cards, I use Paypal and Wave; And, since you pay by invoice, you are never entering any payment info on my site. All financial transactions occur on their secure servers. Since payments are all they do, they have an excellent handle on security.
