– Want to take a walk down Cannery Row on Google Maps, and take a look inside that new gallery? Well now you can with Google Business Photos in Monterey County.
Using Google’s Street View technology and certified equipment, local photographer Steve Loos creates a 360-degree interior walkthrough of a local business that is linked in Google Searches, on Google Maps, and on Google+ Local.
It’s Google’s latest small business marketing feature. The new online experience brings a new dimension to Google maps by allowing a 360-degree interior walkthrough of local places.
With just a click users can zoom right into the business’s door from the street or sky on Google Maps.
“People get so excited when they’re able to walk through the door into their business, and proceed to browse the shelves in their store on Google maps,” says Steve Loos, a long time Hollister resident and professional photographer.
Loos was recently certified as a Google Trusted Photographer. He has created over ten online tours in Monterey County linked to Google, including this one at Z Folio Gallery on Cannery Row in Monterey, CA: http://goo.gl/maps/MpYCD
“Before it was hard to showcase our gallery just with static photos, says Querra Tatsuoka, manager at Z Folio Gallery on Cannery Row. “It just didn’t do it justice. We are a small business with a lot of visual elements. Steve created a lifelike tour that really captures all the intimacies of our entire showroom, and we can broadcast it to the world on all our online profiles.”
Apart from the “wow” factor, it also serves as a powerful way to connect with customers. Loos maps out various points throughout the business, allowing him to capture the unique aesthetics of the place.
“It’s a great solution for local businesses to showcase their personalities to the world. The tour can easily be shared and embedded across web pages and social media, and it brews trust and intrigue to new customers,” says Loos.
In addition to the Z Folio Gallery, Loos has created tours for The Business Card Shoppe in Salinas and The Vault in Hollister.
