Google Business View

What is Business View?

Google Business View brings familiar Street View technology inside your business allowing your customers to take a virtual tour through your premises from the comfort of their PC, tablet or mobile phone.

For years Google Street View has allowed people to click up and down your street, now they can click in to your business.

Independent studies have shown that 90% of people search for local businesses online and premises with a virtual tour can increase foot fall into a business by as much as 20% or more.

How much does it cost and how long does it take?

The cost and time required for the virtual tour is dependent upon the size of your business. As an example, a tour for a small business starts from £200, usually takes under an hour to shoot and normally appears on Google within 2 weeks (all virtual tours are moderated by Google for quality and security purposes). The cost and time required increases with the size of the business based on the number of tripod locations used to create the 360 degree views. Large tours are still normally available on Google within 2 weeks.

Business View Example

Below is an example of one of our shoots. The location is Wheatley Projects in Kimberley, Nottinghamshire. A fantastic small business specialising in flooring. The virtual tour is a great showcase of the range of products they have to offer.
