In the 2024 update, we’ve introduced features that redefine the ease and and increase efficiency of creating virtual tours with WPVR.
One of the standout improvements is the time it takes to create a tour.
Now, you can put together a simple yet stunning virtual tour in less than five minutes.
This leap forward in efficiency means you can focus more on creativity and less on the technicalities.
We’ve brought some more significant features.
Let’s have a look at them.
The WPVR Improvements You Will Love!
As we dive into the specifics, you’ll see how each new feature in the WPVR update is designed to enhance your virtual tour experience, making it more intuitive, engaging, and marketable.
Whether you’re showcasing properties, hotels, or any other spaces, these updates are set to elevate your virtual tours to new heights.
Stay tuned as we explore each of these exciting new WPVR features in detail.
1. Call To Action (CTA) Button on the Tour
The first major enhancement in WPVR is the addition of a Call To Action (CTA) button directly on your virtual tours.
Now you can link to an external page, opening up new opportunities for interaction and marketing with this feature.
Here’s how you can use them:
- Real Estate Showcasing: Direct potential buyers to a contact page or more detailed property information, enhancing the likelihood of engagement and inquiries.
- Hotel Virtual Tours: Embed a CTA that leads to a booking page, seamlessly connecting the virtual experience with the convenience of making a reservation.
- Promotional Campaigns: Use the CTA to highlight special offers or deals, guiding viewers to a landing page where they can learn more or take advantage of these promotions.
Following the exciting addition of the CTA button, another standout feature in WPVR is the ability to password-protect your virtual tours.
2. Password Protected Virtual Tour
Continuing our journey of innovation, we now offer password protection for your virtual tours. This password protected tour feature is all about exclusivity and privacy, allowing you to control who accesses your tours.
Here’s the value you’ll find:
- Exclusive Access for Clients: Share private, password-protected tours with clients, providing them with a unique and exclusive experience.
- Monetization Opportunities: Create a subscription model for your tours, offering paid access to exclusive content and adding a revenue stream.
Once you publish or update your tour with this setting, it becomes accessible only to those who have the password.
With password protection, your virtual tours become a versatile tool for both exclusive marketing and potential revenue generation.
Especially if you’re in the museum or art gallery business, it can be an amazing addition!
3. Private Tour Creation Access
We’ve also brought another layer of control with “Private Tour Creation Access”.
Make a tour private and specifically choose who can edit it.
Here’s what this means for you:
- Tailored Access for Clients and Team Members: You can now grant editing access to selected clients or team members, ensuring that your tours are being refined by the right hands.
- Controlled Collaboration: This feature is perfect for collaborative projects where you need to manage who contributes and views the tour during its creation phase.
This private setting gives you more control over your virtual tours, ensuring that access is limited to a select group.
It’s a straightforward way to manage who sees and contributes to your project, keeping it secure and focused.
4. Easy Scene Navigation Menu
To make the user experience better, we’ve introduced another option, “Easy Scene Navigation Menu” to WPVR. This feature is designed to make navigating through your virtual tour very easy.
Here’s what it does for your tours:
- Streamlined Scene Selection: Visitors can now easily toggle through different scenes in your tour. With an expandable and collapsible menu, finding and viewing specific scenes is straightforward and user-friendly.
- Improved User Interaction: This navigation menu ensures that visitors engage with every aspect of your tour, enhancing their overall experience and interaction with your content.
This new menu is all about making things easy and quick for your visitors.
They can see everything you have to offer in your virtual tour without getting lost or missing anything important.
5. Dedicated Tour QR Code
Another exciting feature you’re getting is the “Dedicated Tour QR Code” feature in WPVR. This innovative addition allows you to generate a QR code for each virtual tour.
Here’s how it elevates your tour experience:
- Instant Access Anywhere: Place the QR code in strategic locations, like brochures or physical ads, allowing people to scan and access your virtual tour instantly.
- Seamless Integration: This feature, available with the embed add-on, bridges the gap between offline and online marketing, offering a quick entry point to your digital space.
It’s a smart way to bridge the gap between physical and digital marketing, giving your audience a direct and effortless path to experiencing your virtual spaces.
6. Social Share Options For Tour
To further enhance the reach of your virtual tours, the WPVR update introduces Social Share Options. This feature is all about extending your tour’s visibility.
Here are advantages,
- Easy Sharing on Social Platforms: Now, your viewers can share your virtual tour directly on social media, expanding your audience with just a few clicks.
- Better Online Presence: These share options, available with the embed add-on, integrate smoothly into your tour, making it more interactive and shareable.
7. Optimization For The Virtual Tour Creation Process
In our quest to make your experience better, WPVR has introduced key optimizations to the tour creation process.
Here’s what these updates mean for you:
i. Save Tour with “No Tour Reload”
Now, when you publish or update your tour, the page won’t reload and send you back to the start. This means you can keep editing right where you left off, making the process smoother and more time-efficient.
ii. Dynamic Scene & Hotspot IDs
Forget the hassle of manually assigning IDs to each scene and hotspot.
With our new update, these IDs are automatically generated, simplifying your workflow and saving you valuable time during the tour creation process.
8. Tour-specific Custom CSS
And lastly, we’re excited to introduce another feature that amplifies your creative freedom: Tour-specific Custom CSS.
This update is all about personalization and fine-tuning the aesthetics of your virtual tours. Here’s how it elevates your tour creation:
- Enhanced Customization: You now can add custom CSS snippets to individual tours. This means you can tailor the look and feel of each tour to match your specific vision or branding requirements.
- Creative Control: With this feature, the power to craft a unique and immersive virtual experience is in your hands. Whether it’s adjusting layouts, colors, or styles, your tours can now fully reflect your creative intent.
This level of customization ensures that your virtual tours aren’t just about showcasing spaces but also about presenting them in a way that aligns with your unique brand and style.
With these updates, we hope that creating virtual tours will now become not just easier, but also more aligned with your marketing and promotional needs.
These updates are a way of making WPVR the go-to tool for virtual tour creation, where ease of use meets marketing efficacy.
