Using Google’s Street View technology, you can create an interior walk through of local businesses that is linked to Google searches, maps, and websites.
It’s a virtual tour that showcases all the interior detail of a business that customers love to see. It’s a perfect fit for wineries, restaurants, wedding venues, retail shops, gyms, salons, and any business looking for a Google advantage.
“The online tour allows your customers to walk around, explore, and interact with your business like never before,” says Scott Brennan, CEO of Access Publishing. “You can share your business with the world.”
“It’s a great solution for local businesses wishing to attract new customers,” says Brennan. “When consumers search for your business, Google shows your business on a map with a street view photo and offers them the opportunity to ‘see inside’ and look around.”
In addition to being available on Google, the virtual tours can be embedded in company websites, social media pages, and more.
“We are excited to have Google Business Photos, now called Business View, for our company and you might like it for yours as well,” he says.
Access Publishing used a Google Trusted Photographer to create one for ourselves and dozens of our client.
If you have a business that will benefit from clients seeing the inside of your location, it is a nice benefit.
“We like the experience it creates, but we have not seen much return on investment from Business View,” Brennan says. “We have not seen any benefit as far as search engine optimization for ourselves or for clients. In that respect, we were disappointed with Business View.
