Market Manager Costs
No upfront fees means you can focus all your efforts (and money) on providing killer services in your market! We take a percentage of each transaction that overs billing, production, customer care, hosting & product evolution!
Typical required equipment package

While we can’t guarantee any income potential, we do have multiple providers that make over $75,000 a year, just based off their own service. Imagine if you had 3 to 5 people working for you too!

We are looking for business managers first, photographers second. We desire someone with sales experience or someone willing to sell, as you will be responsible for presenting in front of companies, brokerages and agents.

What are the costs?
If you qualify was a market manager, there are no initial upfront fees we charge. We charge a percentage of each transaction, that includes the cost of billing, hosting, production (if applicable) and customer care. If you use people today to do any of these services, our FAM program is designed to be competitive with what you are already paying today. If you do it all yourself, then how will you grow your business if you spend hours at your desk doing post production work? Let us do it! The more jobs you and your photographers can do, the more money you will make. Take that bottleneck out of the equation with the FAM program.
Equipment. You will need to make sure you have the right kind of equipment to get started. This includes a significant investment for cameras, lenses, a drone, computer and tablet hardware and the like. We strongly encourage you to get FAA certified for aerial purposes, and in order to sell aerial services through our platform, you need to be a Small UAV certified pilot, and insurred. Studying for the test does take some time, but it is the law and it is not worth doing unauthorized and illegal flights just because you did not want to go through the process. See our post on this topic that details our recommended study course. Remember, one major accident and you are out of business, so it is not worth the risk for you, your client or their homeowner.
You will also need a good, reliable car to get around! As a Market Manager, it is your market, so you grow the business as fast as you can handle it, including bringing on new photographers that work underneath you and your organization.
What areas are available?
We have many areas available throughout the US, and world. Note that currently our system only supports English. We do have certain areas, mainly around the East Coast of the US, that are rather saturated. Therefore, not all areas will automatically be approved. We also want to ensure your success, along with ours, so we are selective in who we allow to be a market manager. Things we look for:
- Size of existing client base
- Ability to produce quality photographs and floor plans
- Number of years in business
- Number of existing providers in our network in desired area
These are of course guidelines and a final determination is made based on discussion with you and your specific business opportunity.
How do I manage accounts & tours?
We have a robust order management system where customers can place orders, both for full service and self service. We also manage the billing, with credit card the preferred method. We can provide invoice billing for larger corporate accounts if that is required. As a Service Provider, you also have an account where you can upload materials and edit tours on the behalf of clients. And of course, our customer care team is there to help you and your clients along the way. Given we do provide a lot of tools, like customizable flyers, having someone to talk to can be a great help, at times!
How do I create FloorPlans?
We have several options.
- Upload a plan image you have and our production team will clean it up. Great for appraisal sketches or architectural plans.
- Use graph paper to measure onsite with a laser device, and upload as a source image. We will clean it up.
- If you use Matterport, we will create the floor plan out of the Matterport scan. All you need to do is give us access to your Matterport account (if applicable).
- Future! Use our drawing tool to draw the plan online. You can also trace over background jpeg images of floor plans (like appraiser’s sketches, marketing brochures).
How can I leverage your Production Operation?
We have an in-house Production operation that oversees all of the activities related to producing a tour. So as a Market Manager/Service Provider, just upload your materials to us, and we produce the tour, including floor plan drawing, photo enhancement and flyer building! While we have tools where an agent can do it themselves, we bring a low tech solution to provide a high tech result. We do a great job with:
- Add blue skies to a cloudy day photo – see examples
- Add a fire in the fireplace
- Advanced Photoshop work like removing a trash can or other object in the photo view
- Make brown grass green or virtual grass touch up
- virtual twilight schemes
- and more….
We do some of these activities by default or through our Photo Enhancement package. Some advanced Photoshop work is done via a per photo basis as well.
