You may be wondering so as to why you should go through the trouble of having a virtual room tour since you’re already doing everything you can to market rooms available for rent or bookings including social media posts and ads, newspaper ads, cleverly shot videos and walkthroughs of the room, professionally shot photographs, etc.
You’re practically doing everything, and so far, business seems to be booming. But are you, really? Is it enough? How do you ensure that your room will never see a day when it lies vacant for weeks, or possibly, even several months?
The fact of the matter is, others like you who rely on room bookings and rentals to make a living are already ahead of the curve – incorporating virtual room tours on their websites and listings that allow prospects to set foot inside rooms without ever having to leave the comfort of their home. And you can’t blame them for capitalising on the technology because virtual room tours really are that effective when it comes to marketing rooms.
Travellers and those looking to book rooms, particularly students, now expect virtual tours to be available on websites and listings as a ‘standard’. In fact, in most cases, they will not book a room unless they are shown a true-to-scale and real life-like virtual room tour beforehand.
