Be aware of not to upload too many photos to your Photo Album or Virtual Tour Photos. Many agents thought it is a good thing to upload as many photos as they can to eAgent360 system for each listing, but this will cause a long loading time for your site visitors of your Single Property Websites and Virtual Tours. With visitor’s short attention span, this can be very frustrating for your visitors.Visitors will not wait for a page to load for 20 seconds, so uploading too many photos will actually hurt you!
Try to keep the photos that captures the property characteristics. Similar or duplicate photos, photos of a door, photos of a flower should not be in the photo album. 10 photos is about 1.5 minutes total Virtual Tour time. This probably will be how much time a visitor will stay to view your Virtual Tour. So, we suggest up to 10 photos for Virtual Tour, 15 photos for a Photo Album for a Single Property Website.
