How it works!
First of all we arrange a time and date that suits you to visit and photograph your business. Once complete we process all of the imagery and upload it to Google’s servers. Next we create the navigation for your Street View virtual tour, before finally publishing it to Google Maps. Next we email you the links and embed code you need to access your Google Street View virtual tour.
Stand Out in Google Search Results
Google Street view Trusted business photos also allow users to find your business via image search. They also appear in the main Google Search – Knowledge Graph, or local info panel. As a result having a Google Street view virtual tour will help your business stand out from the competition.
If you can 'See Inside' business A but not business B - Which are you more likely to buy from?
Get Found on Maps
A Google Streetview virtual tour gets you on the map whilst also allowing customers to explore your business. If customers can ‘See Inside’ your business not your competitors, which do you think they are more likely to visit? Which would you be more likely to visit?
Once your Street View virtual tour has been published to Google Maps we can help you get the most out of it by making it interactive. Although no changes are made to the tour on Google Maps we use an interactive overlay system that allows you to add info points, videos, logos, and menu systems into your virtual tour so that it looks it’s best on your website and is even more valuable to your customers.
Virtual Tours Double Interest in Business Listings!
Two Thirds Of Users Want More Virtual Tours
Quantitative market research was conducted in July 2015 by an independent market research firm to understand the impact of virtual tours on increasing consumers’ interest in local businesses (specifically in booking a reservation at a hotel or restaurant).
- An online survey was conducted with consumers who had searched online for a restaurant or hotel within the previous 30 days (using any device).
- A total sample of 1201 respondents was collected between July 21st and August 2nd, 2015.
- Different versions of a local business listing (one for a hotel, the other for a restaurant) were created to include basic info, photos and/or a virtual tour (the same media were used to create each version).
- Respondents were asked to view one of the different versions for each business (in a randomized order). Each respondent viewed:
1 hotel listing + 1 restaurant listing; and
1 listing with a virtual tour + 1 listing without a virtual tour.
Note: Presentation of alternate listings were randomized evenly and consistently throughout field.
- After viewing each listing, respondents were instructed to rate their interest in booking a reservation.
- Ratings for alternate listings (with a tour versus without) were aggregated to understand impact of virtual tours on interest in the featured business.
