They were soon talking on the phone twice a month.
Kevin urged Alden to focus on getting his production times down significantly to make his business profitable. Kevin also connected Alden with professional iGUIDE photographers who have a fast and profitable way of shooting houses. After a single, 15-minute conversation with one such person, Alden decided to buy an iGUIDE camera.
“I am six times faster than before, and that’s all because of Kevin, it is really his intervention that convinced me to switch,” says Alden.
Thanks to the one-on-one coaching, Alden’s learning curve for the iGUIDE was much shorter.
His first iGUIDE shoot was in mid-March 2018 and hasn’t looked back since. Now he completes photos in 45 minutes and offers the complete iGUIDE package with photos, a 3D tour, floor plans and measurements for $300 per house.
Alden continues to offer straight photo packages for realtors and can now charge $129 for a regular photo shoot, up from $90 when he started out three years ago.
The feedback from new and current brokers, sellers and buyers is excellent. Renovation companies hire Alden to do floor plans for old houses too.
Alden knows his business is now poised for lots of growth. “I think there is a huge, huge, huge market here,” says Alden. “Now I am ready for it.”
