Amazing NEW Virtual Tours for Websites, Emailing or Blogs - FREE!

Amazing!  I just found out about this amazing site from an email I received from Broker Agent News.  This is a website that allows the user to create FREE...Yes FREE virtual tours and either post them to your website, email them to friends or burn them to a CD!

Basic tours you create are FREE and you can expand to Mapwing Pro which includes extensive features including mapping to go along with your tour for only $15 per tour with no contracts to sign!

"Want to create virtual tours like a Pro? Integrate them into your blog or Web site? There's a kick ass new Web site called Mapwing and let this Pro be the first to tell you, It Kicks Ass. Mapwing simplifies all of the hassles involved with creating real estate virtual tours. No stitching of panoramas. No learning code in order to embed the 360° pano thingy. None of that crap that you have to pay Web designers bizillions of dollars to do for you. Just follow the instructions and you'll end up with a terrific looking floor plan with integrated virtual tour. In the end you'll have the option of embedding it within your own Web site or emailing it to your clients! Its the perfect blog marketing tool."  Justin Farrow - Real Estate Broker

Released into public beta in late 2006, Mapwing.com already has about 1000 registered users who are sharing tours of their vacations, schools, cars, homes, parks, businesses, landmarks, dorm rooms, and towns. Mapwing.com offers Basic virtual tour creation and unlimited Web hosting for free. The Web site also offers Mapwing Plus for a small fee to consumers needing more features and Mapwing Pro for a small fee to professionals demanding high-quality tours without any long-term commitments.

"Mapwing.com is turning virtual tours mainstream," said Andrew Hagenbuch, CEO and cofounder of Redbug Technologies. "Each day, we are seeing more users share the places they love with the rest of the world. Travelers, teachers, artists, real estate agents, and consumers are all giving Mapwing.com a try."

"Mapwing is a tool that helps you create and share virtual tours.  It's great for making tours for real estate, tourism, and just for fun".  Molly McDonald, Screeniac Blog

What a wonderful resource.

Yes Tom, Sign up and check it out.  It just blew me away. Basic tours are FREE and if you want more bells and whistles complete with mapping attached to your tours it is only $15 per tour with no contracts to sign!

I use www.visualtour.com and the cost is $29 a month for up to 1000 tours - depending on how many listings you have a month this might be a good thing for you to look at

Good for you Thesa.  My point is that the basic virual tours on this site are FREE.  The other package is for those that want to include other features like a floor plan of the home.  For some that don't take a lot of listings the $15 per listing makes sense and theres no contracts to sign.  Have a great day!

George,

Thank you for sharing with all of us.  I checked out the website and it looks great!  I have seen some virtual tour websites that charge in the $100's.  You can't go wrong with the FREE virtual tours to start and maybe change to the Mapwing Pro later.  At $15 per tour with additional features you can't go wrong.
