In the state of New Jersey, we have more people than we do square feet. As a result , we tend to trip over each other quite a bit on the Turnpike, Parkway and the lovely back roads too. New Jersey tends to get a bad wrap for not being too friendly. Everybody seems to be related to Tony Soprano in some way. Another thing about New Jersey is if you don't know Bruce Springsteen, you do know someone who is a Real Tour Vision dealer. We seem to have an overabundance for such a small state. You may think that we have a lot of Realtors, but if you actually research the list from the Multiple Listing Services, you'll find that there is a large percent age of members that are inactive . You also need to take in to account all or the non Real Tour Vision virtual tour / slide show providers. A recent survey was sent out about a code of ethics . The survey did not mention anything about territories. I don't know about you, but I would have liked the option to have requested a territory, even if I had to pay a premium for it. Free range can make marketing and growing my business a bit frustrating. I would have liked to work together with other Real Tour Vision dealers and not compete for the same business. It's hard enough to compete with other providers such as CirclePix, Tour Factory, etc. It would be nice to be able to share trade show tables, refer overflow business and joint market together . Unfortunately, without protected territories, it seems improbable.
Your input may help to create the option to bid on protected territories either monetarily or by guaranteeing a volume commitment. This way we can truly network to increase business for Real Tour Vision dealers wherever you are. Please let RTV know how you feel about this topic.
