Virtual Tour Edge: HQ Method – learn how to get excellent image quality for 360 cameras

Virtual tours have never been more popular.  Many photographers want to provide virtual tour services, and 360 cameras can make it easy to create virtual tours.  But how do you stand out from a crowded field of photographers offering similar services?  One answer is through better image quality, in a class that I’m teaching called Virtual Tour Edge: HQ Method.

Here’s the introduction to the class:

Samples

Here are some sample photos that show the results you can get from using the techniques in the class:

FAQ

  1. How much is the class?
    It is currently $197 one-time payment, or if you prefer monthly installments, $50 per month for 4 months.  In the future, I will add more content and the price may increase.
  2. Do you have a guarantee?
    Yes, I have a 60-day Effectiveness Guarantee. I guarantee that the techniques will work (please check the compatibility chart) if you use the software and follow the instructions.  If they don’t work, then contact me within 60 days and send me your files that show how you used the technique.  I can point out if there are any mistakes in how you used the techniques, but if the techniques still don’t work, you can get a refund in the 60-day period from the date you purchased the class.
    This guarantee is more solid than a typical satisfaction guarantee.  With a typical satisfaction guarantee, you might choose not to get a refund for other reasons, even if the techniques don’t work.  In this case, I’m doing more than that: I’m specifically guaranteeing that the techniques WILL work.
  3. I can’t afford it.  It’s too expensive for me!  Can you lower the price for the class?
    With the course, you’ll learn to use software that requires no subscription.  Even if you don’t do virtual tours and all you get is not having to use expensive subscription software, that alone will pay for the class.
    Also, check out the monthly plan, which is $50 per month for 4 months.  Please note that the class requires the use of software that costs around $450 (if you don’t already have them).  If you cannot afford even the monthly option, the software will be too expensive for you.
  4. Do you have an affiliate link?  Can I become an affiliate?
    Yes I do!  If you want to become an affiliate, sign up as a user on 360rumors.thinkific.com and send me a message, then I’ll add you as an affiliate.  As an affiliate, you can not only recoup your investment in the course, but you can actually earn income, while also helping other people learn valuable techniques.
  5. Will the HQ Method work with my camera?
    Please see the compatibility chart here.  If your camera is not listed, please let me know which camera you use, and I’ll let you know if the techniques work for your particular camera.
  6. Will the HQ Method work for DSLR panoramas?
    I am working on a separate class for DSLR, but meanwhile, the techniques for fixing stitching errors and getting seamless stitch lines will work for DSLR panoramas as well.
  7. Will the HQ Method work for videos?
    No, as stated in the compatibility chart, the HQ Method techniques are only for photos.
  8. You mention software.  How much are the software for the HQ Method?
    As of July 2020, there are 3 software, which are around $450 total.
  9. Is the class basically just about buying certain software?
    No.  Even if you have the software, you won’t get these results without using the techniques the course.  It’s similar to buying a piano.  Just because you buy one does not mean that you will know how to play music.
    If you are already an experienced user of the software, then see the results I showed.  Can you get those results?  If not, then you have something to learn from the course.
    If you can already achieve those results I showed, then you don’t need the course.  (If you still take the course even if you can achieve the results, then you’re filling some other need, and that’s the value you’re getting from the class, such as expanding your repertoire of techniques.)
  10. Do I need to be an expert to use the techniques?
    No. You don’t need special skills.  Just follow the instructions.
  11. Will the techniques be too hard to do?
    No, I give very clear, step-by-step instructions.  I don’t just say “keep practicing.”  I give clear instructions that will work if you follow them.
    I also explain the techniques clearly, and why they work, which opens the possibility for you to modify the techniques.  For example, if you watch my VR headset buying guide video, I give an in-depth explanation of how and why VR works.  AFAIK, no other VR headset review has explained how and why VR works at that depth and with that clarity.  (If you watch my videos, I hope you’ll notice that this is generally true for most of my videos as well.)
    Similarly, in this course, I don’t just show you how to use the software superficially.  I explain them in-depth and show you how to use them clearly.
  12. Can I hire someone to do the editing for me and I’ll teach them the techniques?
    When you purchase the course, it is only for you.  You are not allowed to share the techniques or teach them to anyone.  You can either (i) have your editor enroll in the course, or (ii) hire a Virtual Tour Edge member to edit for you.
  13. Can’t I learn this on YouTube for free?
    First, the videos here are all new.  They are not recycled from my YouTube channel.  Second, the techniques in this class are not a rehash of common techniques.  I’ve written over 2500 articles on 360 cameras and VR and I haven’t seen these techniques taught.
    But the most important thing is the results.  After watching all the YouTube videos that you want, can you get the results that I showed?  If not, then you have something to learn from the course.
    If you can already achieve those results I showed, then you don’t need the course.   If you still take the course even if you can achieve the results, then you’re filling some other need, and that’s the value you’re getting from the class.
  14. I already enrolled in another class that also teaches photo editing.  Will you be teaching the same things?
    After taking another class, can you get the results that I showed?  If not, then you have something to learn from the course.
    If you can already achieve those results I showed, then you don’t need the course.   If you still take the course even if you can achieve the results, then you’re filling some other need, and that’s the value you’re getting from the class.
  15. Will I make money from virtual tours?
    If you go to the best medical school, with the best teachers, best equipment, state of the art technique, will you be a successful doctor? Probably yes because you can probably do the job better.  Will the best medical school guarantee that you’ll make money? No. First, making money depends on other factors, such as diligence. Second, they don’t want to make a promise that they can’t keep and neither do I.
    What I can promise is that you can take better photos, and do it efficiently. Will you have an edge over other photographers? Yes. Will you make money? You will have a much better chance of doing that.
    I only promise what I can deliver.
  16. I’m a bit scared of starting a business.
    I can totally relate, because not all businesses succeed and there is some risk involved. Did you know 360 Rumors is not my first blog?  Actually, my first blog was begun in 2009, and it was called Better Family Photos.  I created it as a hobby and a way for me to keep notes about what I learned.  After around 7 years of hard work, I reached 1 million views.  In 2015, I learned about 360 cameras and after about a year, I created 360 Rumors in 2016.
    When I started 360 Rumors, there were some cameras such as the LG 360 Cam  that I was thinking about buying but which I knew I could not earn sufficient affiliate commissions to recoup my cost.
    I had to decide for myself, is 360 Rumors a hobby or a business?  And if it is a business, what would customers fairly expect from me?  Wouldn’t they expect to see a review of this camera from a 360 camera review site?  And so I bought the camera.  Since I began treating 360 Rumors as a business, and making decisions based on what my audience reasonably expects from a business, the number of views increased rapidly.  In less than a year, I surpassed all the traffic that I had gotten from my first blog, which would not have been possible if I had only treated it the same way I treated my first blog – as a hobby.

If you have any other questions, please let me know in the comments.  Thank you very much.
