GOOGLE BUSINESS VIEW – WHAT IS IT?

Put simply – it’s a virtual tour allowing users to have a peek inside businesses. You probably already know about Google Streetview – the mapping service by Google that allows users to explore towns and cities from the comfort of their home – but now Google, always at the forefront of technology, is stepping it up a notch and is making it possible to virtually step inside buildings and get a look at the interior with Google Business View. With the same seamless visuals we’ve seen whilst using Google Maps and Google Earth, users can explore the inside of participating businesses by clicking on arrows to move around.

Particularly beneficial to ‘customer facing’ businesses, this immersive mapping experience would be fantastic to help engage new customers. Perhaps a prospective gym member wants to see what equipment is on offer, a bride planning her wedding wants to view the interior of a hotel or perhaps a couple want to gauge the ambience of a restaurant before booking. Having the option of a Google Business Tour certainly gives you an edge, enhancing your current Google presence by appearing more inviting and vibrant.

Keep on top of the trend and give us a call to find out more, prices start from £300. We are in the process of setting up a local hotel with Google Business View and we will be updating next week so you can see how it works for local businesses.

In the mean time here’s a more unusual example – a look round the Emirates Airbus. Have a go at virtual sightseeing by clicking below!
