Default New Automated Online Video Creation!

VisualTour Now Offers a Second Great Way to Share Videos on YouTube

For quite some time, the VisualTour Studio software has been able to convert your tour files into videos and upload them to YouTube.  We are now pleased to announce that we have added a second automated option that allows you to have videos created directly from your online tours and submitted to YouTube (for free).  Just set it up one time and never again spend a single minute creating a video or uploading it to YouTube!



CLICK HERE to watch a video explaining the new feature and how to activate it in your account

-OR-

Follow these basic steps.
  1. From the main My Account screen of your online account, click Tour Distribution Setup.

  2. Next to the YouTube option, click Setup.

  3. If you do not yet have a YouTube account, click Create YouTube.com Account. Make sure you not only set up your account, but also choose a channel name (click down arrow next to your name in the upper right on YouTube.com, then Settings, then Create a Channel to the right of your photo)

  4. Once you have an account, click Authorize VisualTour For YouTube Distribution.

  5. Click Allow Access.
You are now set up to have your future tours sent to YouTube automatically.  You might also wish to click Video Layout from the My Account screen to review the settings available there for number of scenes sent and video titling.  For previously uploaded tours, just go to your My Tours page and click the INFO button next to the tour, then check the box for YouTube and click SAVE.

Included Features:
  • The first six scenes of your tour with individual captions and descriptions

  • A link below the video back to the full tour

  • Your tour's selected background music

  • Property details (address, price, bedrooms, baths, etc)

  • Your contact information displayed at the beginning of the tour, the end of the video, and beneath the video

  • Automatically generated keywords to help with the YouTube search

  • QR codes for your YouTube videos available via your online Link Builder tool
Of course, the VisualTour Studio software is still there if you want to use the original upload method to display more scenes (or specific scenes rather than the first six), set custom timing, include voice narration, or create videos for places other than YouTube.  This new feature just provides an automated alternative so you can get back to the other tasks that take up your day.

As always, the VisualTour support staff is available to take your questions and offer assistance between 8AM and 8PM Eastern time on weekdays and 9AM to 6PM Eastern on Saturdays.  Just call them toll free at 800-873-0700 or send them an email at support@VisualTour.com.
