Hi Readers.

Never happy with the status quo, we have been developing 360 virtual tours which are accessible on all devices such as iPads, iPhones, Android Phones, PC’s or Apple Macs. In the latter stages of testing, along with the ability to connect to the tour using a QR code.

So, all of you out there with these wonderful devices, check it out… see if it works and let me have your feedback. All comments welcome.

Simply scan the QR code below, and you will be whisked away to a little holiday cottage in Wales.

I look forward to your comments.

Hi Readers,

Amongst the many holiday cottages and schools that we do, we occasionally get asked to provide a 360 virtual Tour for somewhere a little different.

Always willing to oblige, I was really happy to be able to, in a small way, promote the wonderful skills to be seen at Telynau Teifi, The Welsh Harp Centre in Llandysul, Ceredigion. The workmanship and skills of the staff at Telynau Teifi are to be cherished. If you are ever down in Mid Wales, give them a call, and go and see for yourself. In the meantime, have a look at their 360 Virtual Tour.

(Sorry it is a little big for my blog window.) Don’t forget to have your volume controller ON.

Best Wishes to my new friends at Telynau Teifi.

Hi Readers…. Sorry it has been a long time since our last post….

We have been so busy, not had the time to post, and I suppose we should not complain.

Two new customers are now benefiting from their Virtual Tours….. 58 360 virtual tours in all.

These are Marsdens Holiday Cottages and Ingrid Flute Yorkshire Holiday Cottages

So for anyone wanting a holiday cottage in North Devon or North Yorkshire, you know where to look…. and with their Virtual Tours, with some of the properties you can have a complete look around….

We are sure more will be added in the near future… Enjoy your Staycation…..

Hi,

Been busy with more tours. Holiday Cottages, Schools but this was new. Brand New.
The Salford City Stadium, new home of the Salford Red, Rugby League.

There are still some additional scenes to add in the coming months, but as the Stadium is brand new, the management wanted the tour to go live as soon as possible.

So here it is:

Further scenes will be added, so bookmark us, and come back soon.

Hi Readers,

As we all know, once Christmas is over, the TV is full of Holiday Adverts. (well apart from money lenders, claims lawyers etc. )

Well to help put some figures on that, in relation to 360 Virtual Tours and Holiday Cottages, we can report a 50% increase in viewings of our 360 Virtual Tours since the beginning of January. Not bad and we are only at January 6th.

360 virtual tours are a great way to showcase holiday cottages, enabling potential holiday guests to have a detailed view before they book. It is like “open house” 24 hrs a day, 365 days a year. The 360 virtual tour clearly demonstrates the confidence of the owner in the quality of the cottages and gives the potential holiday guest confidence in the suitability of the cottage for their needs. Look before you book….

In addition, the figures are 25% up on the same period in 2011.

So despite all the Mayan 2012 Doom merchants, the “half full brigade” here’s wishing you all a busy 2012.

Lets all work to a better 2012.

Hi,

As it approaches the end of the year, we have been looking back over 2011 and looking at what has been achieved. It is always easy to sit back and congratulate yourselves on a job well done, but in the end it is not what we think that matters, it is what the property owners think.

So with this in mind I took a little peek at the viewing statistics on The Virtual Cottage Company, which as you know is part of the 360Virtual-Tours family of websites. Do 360 Virtual Tours work?

This chart make some interesting viewing, and demonstrates the value of having a virtual tour on your website. (The property Number is the Listing number as shown on The Virtual Cottage Company )

Average Monthly Viewings

As time goes by The Virtual Cottage Company increases in its visibility, via Facebook, Twitter as well as organic Search Engine optimisation. We are already on page1 Google for a number of search criteria. Viewings will continue to increase and with more viewings come more bookings.

As someone once said, having a website, without promoting it, is like having a fancy TV advert, without buying “air time”. So it is with Holiday Cottage owners. If you have a website, HAVE A 360 VIRTUAL TOUR and have it listed on The Virtual Cottage Company to help in your cottage promotion and gain more bookings.

With that in mind may we take this opportunity to thank our customers for Virtual Tour commissions in 2011, and wish you all a prosperous 2012.
