What is a Google Virtual Tour?

Google Virtual Tours (also known as Google Business View) is official Google content and utilizes the commonly used “Streetview” technology of Google Maps to allow customers to “See Inside” of your business. It’s interactive content that gives the most awesome preview of the customer experience at each location.

How do my customers use it?

Your Google Virtual Tour will integrate seamlessly with all of the ways your customers will search for you on Google. This includes MAPS, regular SEARCH, and Google+. Everybody’s using Google Maps for directions these days and this rich content will be right at their fingertips!

Are there any additional fees or monthly charges?

NO. We help you to maximize the “Free Real Estate” that Google gives every business. The content we help you create will be owned by you and will live with your profile indefinitely.

Do I get the copyright to Point of Interest Images?

YES. You will get full copyrights to all images created and are free to use them on any digital platform (ie Facebook, blog, etc.) or print. The Google Tour + Great High Resolution Images, It’s a heck of deal!

These Google Tours must be super expensive, Right?

Wrong. Google has created a platform to efficiently produce this interactive content allowing us, the Google Trusted Photographer, to offer the service at a truly affordable price. Small business Tours start at the LOW PRICE OF $500!

I have a fancy camera, can’t I just do this myself?

Sorry, but no. Some things are best left to a professional, and the Google Virtual Tour is one of them. Only Google Trusted Independent Photographers can offer this service. We have worked extensively to be certified and trained on the best techniques to create the most beautiful experience of your business. We protect your brand and present great imagery of your business!

How long does the process take?

For most businesses, the shoot lasts about 1-2 hours. Then we hustle back to the office and begin the post-production process. Within 1-2 weeks your tour will be LIVE across all Google Platforms!

Can people be present for the Google Tour?

Yes. Customers and employees can be present, but their faces will be blurred to ensure privacy. Many business owners prefer to show the business in its pure state and without humans, which is also cool. We can come early or late if you prefer this look.
