How to use:
Obviously for cost reasons, you'll want to only use Matterport for your high-end listings. This is especially useful when you list a home in an area with a lot of foreign buyers, or buyers who are transitioning from other areas to live in your particular area.

How to use:
Video email works great to "humanize" your lead generation strategy. For example, if you've only been able to speak to a prospect via phone, then drop them a video email, they are then able to put a face to the person and make a more personal connection.
