Business Photos by Google Trusted Photographers. Take a look inside:
With Google Business Photos, people can interact with your business in a great new way- by looking inside. Just like Google’s street view mode, for the inside your business. See some virtual tour examples right here. Embed your own tour on your company’s Web site.
Now you can showcase your business online and invite people to see inside your showroom, cafe, shop, ballroom, theater, clinic- and stand out on local searches by showing customers what makes your business unique. It’s easy: Starting at just $360, a Google certified, Trusted Photographer will capture ten professional photos of your business and a beautiful 360° panoramic tour connected to Google+, Google Maps and Google Search so that you can invite new customers to take a look inside your business and learn more about what makes you stand out. Want to learn more about the marketing strength of standing out? See this informative slideshow for more information and further resources.
Plus your virtual tour can be embedded on any website as easily as embedding a youtube video. These tours will stay online as long as you wish, with no upkeep or maintenance. Google will host them free of charge, and your business will show up much more relevantly for local searches.
As well as a virtual tour of your business, your Google Business Photo shoot includes a selection of featured photos which are shown on your Google Places page and in Google Search results. The Google Business Photos program and Google Places brings you an easy and unique way to find new customers using fully interactive, 360 degree panoramic tours of your business – with the resulting photographs and tours appearing on your Google Places page, featured next to your search results and within Google Maps. These tours and photographs can also be embedded within your own site and shared on Facebook or any other social media.
When your business is shown in a Google Search result, your new customers will see your virtual panoramic tour and business photos. Along with the panoramic tour, Google Business Photos also includes a set of Featured Photos which showcase the unique details your clients are looking for. Getting started is easy: either email or call a qualified Google Trusted Photographer in your area to schedule a time and agree on a price that you will pay for the photography. The photoshoot requires only a half hour of time, can be done around your customers, and within 3 business days, your virtual tour will be live on Google Maps (business address verification required). It’s just that simple- and it all starts at just $360.
