You’ve heard the saying “A picture is worth a thousand words’ … does that apply to your business?
Are you a resort, hotel or apartment with stunning views over the rainforest or beach that creates that emotional tipping point to turn a potential customer into a guest into a customer?
Are you a restaurant or cafe with a welcoming dining area, attractive decor or views over the water, beach or rainforest that existing customers love and keep coming back for?
Are you perhaps a little boutique with exquisite collections that customers love browsing thru … captivated and enticed thru your front doors by how your shop looks and how you have everything displayed?
How do you put that scene …
… that sells your business in front of potential customers?
** Video perhaps … but takes too long to load and is it going to load on an iPhone or an iPad?
** Photo gallery perhaps … great idea and the better your photos look the more likely you are to attract customers … so engage a photographer, have someone else put them up on your website and hopefully when someone is searching they’ll find your website and your photos.
** Virtual tour perhaps … they were a great idea but always tiny little photos that would only load on a PC, hugely expensive and took too long to load … until now!
You already have a Google webpage and Google wants your business to have a Google Virtual Tour!
Fasttrack to 2012 and Google has a webpage for nearly every business – you may not know it but it’s there already and sometimes ranks higher on Google than even your own website. Even better, Google will allow you to have a Virtual Tour on that webpage PLUS connect that to Google Maps so that everyone can see inside your business, over the stunning views, around the aisles of your exquisite collection … even down onto the beach or marina.
… and that’s what we do! Virtual Tours of your business, just like Google Street View, connect your Virtual Tour to Google so it appears on your Google webpage PLUS Google Maps PLUS show you how easy it is to have that Virtual Tour showcased on your own website
On average, it should take no more than 7 days to have your business showcased on Google Street View/Maps in gorgeous high res HDR imagery.
- Site inspection and quote – agree on a price/sign Google release;
- Invoice for once only payment – no ongoing costs or charges;
- We shoot a series of 360’s using Google specified equipment – up to 150mb per panorama!;
- We upload the 360’s to Google;
- We manipulate images, panos, links, GPS positioning and then connect your tour to Google StreetView;
- You’re ‘live’ on Google showcasing your property/business in stunning high res HDR imagery;
- You promote/publicise the tour and embed it in your website.
Defining points to the above – lighting and weather conditions can affect the quality of the images. Some business/property scenes are best shot on dusk or dawn with the magical light balance between inside and outside … say a bedroom with bedside lamps on with the view thru the balcony and to the outside with the sunset lighting palms and beach creating a stunning 360 image. Takes a little longer, can cost a little more but the images can be simply breathtaking … and as such are likely to be a better sales tool for your business.
