SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGN
Having your tour featuring prominently on your website is one thing, but your customers may not see it unless you drive them there. Use your social media platforms to engage with people and encourage them to click through to your tours. Some of our most visited tours are not the biggest name clients or most interesting sites but those that know how to capture the interest of their target audience.
Design a social media campaign that schedules posts featuring links to your tour. Visits will drift away if you fail to continually remind people of your tours, so schedule in some engaging social media content, drive people to your website, use those additional features such as dollhouse images and teaser videos as well as the links to your tours themselves. Also, analyse the traffic to your tours and your web pages that contain the embedded tours – we can provide you with your tour visit statistics upon request.
PREPARATION AND PLANNING
Prepare the space and present it as you would want it to be seen – remember, our cameras will see what you can see and you cannot “photoshop” things out in post production. Also, plan what you want from your tours. This seems obvious, but if you consider the journey of your virtual visitor through your site and what you want them to be sold on, you can be reminded of areas or features that you wanted them to see. Have a focus – don’t ask for a huge scan of an entire site if you’re only really interested in “selling” a few select areas. Firstly, that wastes time in setting those areas up which costs you more in scanning, and secondly, it can lead to a less than engaging user experience.
At hi-impact we prefer to work as your partner on any scanning projects, learning about your needs and strategies before creating anything for you. That way, you will obtain results that really work for you. Hopefully, you have found the above useful but if you have any questions or want to chat to one of hi-impact’s scanning operatives, do get in touch and we will be more than happy to help.
