New Marketing Packages Released

In recognition of the changing climate of real estate marketing in Shreveport/Bossier City and in our ongoing effort to bring you leading marketing solutions, Ark-La-Tex Virtual Tours has restructured our virtual tour packages. Our new packages offer enhanced marketing both online and off. These packages go beyond simply providing virtual tours. They are designed to provide online property exposure via interactive media that engages the buyer with high resolution photos, rich text and informative audio. These packages are supported by offline digital and print media that ensures that you and your listing are seen by more buyers than ever before.

At Ark-La-Tex Virtual Tours we believe that you should have an effective and professional online presence and we are expanding our product line to provide property marketers with the tools they need to accomplish this. However, we also recognize that not everyone is comfortable or proficient working online. Therefore, Ark-La-Tex Virtual Tours is now able to offer virtual tours which are Search Engine Optimized and include Web 2.0 features and functionality. This allows our clients to effectively and effortlessly market with progressive technology without having to keep up with the Web 2.0 learning curve. At Ark-La-Tex Virtual Tours, we do the work so that you don’t have to.

We believe that our new packages will offer our clients more a valuable and well rounded marketing experience. All of which can be tracked with the weekly HitStats reports which are already in place. Visit our website to review our packages or call us today to discuss your internet marketing campaign.
