Why is a Google Street View | Trusted virtual tour right for you?
Updated June 8, 2016
The Google Street View | Trusted virtual tours I create enable businesses to make a better first impression on Google Maps® and Google Search®. You will have a custom tour created for your business. I provide quality still imagery of your business for your unlimited and unrestricted use. Photographs include wide and targeted interior, exterior views along with products or menu items. Google provides a Update 6/2016: “Thumbnail Entry point”link in Google Maps and Google Search that allows searchers to explore your business 24/7, 365 days a year. You can also embed or share your virtual tours on websites, emails and other Social Media platforms Update 6/2016: Google is transitioning from the words “See inside” to an elliptical icon lower left in thumbnails that represents panoramic tour entry point.
Here are 2 additional videos showing the power of opening your doors to your local clientele. NOTE: some of the videos on this page were created for Google Business View the last iteration of the Google Street View | Trusted Photographer program.
Using the “Google My Business” interface or app to maintain your data will make sure the information delivered on Google is current. Search results include the “See inside” “Now elliptical Icon with arrow to suggest tour entry point” and “Photos” in the search results. Businesses can easily embed tours onto websites, social media platforms, and more! Here are some samples of tours I have embedded on Client Tours page.
Embed your tour
Your tour can be easily embedded onto your website. There is a way to embed your tour onto a Facebook Page as well with the use of an APP more information HERE.
Links to content
Here is a search page for Middle Eastern Food Hamilton followed by the link when clicking on the Paramount Fine Foods (the only result with an image instead of a map pin) takes you to Google Maps with Search results(next image).
In Google Maps Paramount Fine Foods has “See inside” and “Photos”. When you click on “See inside” you are taken to a predetermined location to tour the business. If you click on “See photos” the image gallery is opened. Clients or the Manager of the Google Places or Google+ Page will now need to add images. This will make changing and updating easier for businesses.
