First, make sure you register for the DIY360 for Pop Reps Training! You don’t need to have your equipment to register and go through the Training initially, but it will give you online access to your DIY360 Training Course. **Please be sure to use your POP SELLS EMAIL ADDRESS when you register.**
IF YOU’VE PREVIOUSLY ENROLLED IN THE PR360 TRAINING YOU DO NOT NEED TO RE-REGISTER for DIY360.
Within 24 Hours of Registering (M-F), you’ll receive an email with your personal Training Course Access login. If it’s been longer than this and you’ve still not received your login, please check your junk/spam folders and then contact us here.
You’ll need an initial purchase of the required 360° camera and necessary equipment. (See info below). We have researched and tested several cameras, and we’ve weighed the pros and cons of each and put together the best possible combination of equipment balancing cost, ease of use and quality. If you already own the Insta360 ONE RS Twin Edition camera – contact us for details, perfect! If not, you’ll need to purchase one to utilize the DIY360 for Pop Reps Program.
The Insta360 ONE RS Twin Edition we recommend for a camera is much more than just a 360° Panorama camera! It does so much more! It also takes the place of both a standard photo and video camera too, (No need to overload your mobile phone with listing photo/video any longer!) so it’s well worth the initial investment.
We have developed a FREE professional step-by-step Training Program for you that teaches what you need to know to be successful in taking 360° photography to enhance your POP listings. …And POP SELLS is investing in you by covering the cost of each Virtual Tour that you submit to us for processing**.
