Google Street View | Trusted
How does it work?
It costs nothing to feature your business on a Google+ business Page. Add Business View, and your customers can walk around, explore and interact with your business like never before. What’s more; you’re free to add the virtual tour and additional photos to your own website. Full instructions are also provided.Prospective customers will now be able to have a look around your business, just like being there, and when they like what they see, they are more likely to become a new customer to your business.
As you know, a massive proportion of new customers do their research before visiting your premises, whether it is a restaurant, pub, shop or showroom, and compare you against your competitors…
Now, imagine if you have a virtual tour on your Google Business Page, your customers will be able to not just see your business, but SEE INSIDE IT! This encourages strangers to become YOUR NEW CUSTOMERS and not your competitors!
What are Google+ Business Pages?
When you search in Google or Google Maps for businesses such as restaurants in the West Midlands’a number of red place markers (pins) are shown. If you click on the pin, a pop-up allows you to click on a ‘More Info’’link, which will open the Google+ page for that business.
If it is your business, you can claim control of the page and add photos and descriptions of your business. There is no cost for you to edit this page, which, if you make proper use of it, is effectively a free website for your business provided 365 days a year, and you become part of Google’s Business directory. This is an amazing bargain when you consider the cost of other media advertising that lasts only a limited period and charges annual hosting costs.
Google Business View
When you choose to include Google Business View, a specially trained independent photographer, selected by Google, will take a range of photographs for use in the photos section of the Google+ Business page (also known as POI’s). The photographer will also shoot the virtual tour, before processing the tour to Google’s quality standards so that it will appear on your Google Business page.
There does not need to be any disruption to your trading.
Using specialist equipment, the tour typically takes about one hour on site, depending on its size. When completing the free survey we will give you an estimate of the time required to shoot the entire business however you’re welcome to have your tour scheduled outside of working hours. As on Street View, any faces and car registration numbers are blurred due to privacy restrictions.
