Adding a 360-degree panoramic photo to your Google My Business listing provides unbeatable exposure on Google Maps and connects you to your customers.
And right now you can do it for just $199+GST
According to an Ipsos survey conducted for Google back in 2014, nearly half of us are using Google Maps, or other location-based tools, to find businesses and services like yours. Given that five years have passed since this survey, it’s highly likely that this figure is far greater.
Today’s businesses all understand the need for a website (or at least a social media platform) to get themselves seen online. But if your customers are searching Google Maps, they won’t see you unless you have a Google My Business listing. And the best way to make your GMB listing stand out on Google Maps is to add at least one 360-degree photograph to your profile.
A Google Street View virtual tour gives you better exposure on Google Maps. Best viewed in full screen.
Do you need Street View photography?
Honestly? You might not. If your business isn’t open to the public, or if it’s not that interesting to look at, then there are better ways to promote it. (Like using AR to add video to your business card.)
On the other hand, if you have an office that you want the world to see, or a venue that looks amazing, then you absolutely should show it off. You’ve worked hard to make it look that good, so why not share it with the thousands of potential customers who are all using map-based data to find businesses just like yours (and your competitors).
AN INTERIOR 360-DEGREE PANORAMA COMES WITH BENEFITS YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE CONSIDERED
Showing, rather than telling, is one of the best ways to build your brand. And an interior 360 panorama comes with benefits you might not have considered: people with impaired mobility can see how accessible your place is, while people with anxiety disorders or autism can virtually visit you to prepare themselves better for when they come to you IRL. Small details like these can make a big difference.
This example is hosted on Polygon, and allows for a more curated virtual tour than a simple Google Street View image.
So how much does a Google Street View tour cost?
Not as much as you might think. We can help you get your business seen on Google Maps and Street View for just $199+GST. And we make sure that we show your business at its best.
