Google Street View Trusted is a powerful tool for your business. 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Most businesses have a Google My Business (Google Maps) listing that they've created themselves or had someone else do it for them. You can either find this listing via a keyword search (i.e. Restaurants Tauranga) at the top of the Google search results (often just below Google paid Ad listings) or on the right hand side of the Google search results page under your business name.

Our independently contracted Google Street View Trusted photographer will come to your business, shoot a series of photos of the inside of your premises that you wish to showcase. He will use a special type of camera, fish eye lens, tripod and a panorama head to ensure that the very best photos are taken in a perfect alignment. These photos are then taken away and edited, then linked together and uploaded to Google software, producing a 360 degree panoramic tour which is then uploaded to your Google Maps listing. This tour will be available to users on desktop, tablet and mobile devices.

CAN THE VIRTUAL TOUR BE ADDED TO OUR WEBSITE AS WELL?

Yes. Part of our service will be to provide you with a video which we will work with you or your web developer to upload to your website.


CASE STUDY - cafe versailles restaurant

Local Tauranga business Cafe Versailles recently acquired the services of a Google Street View Trusted photographer. Below you will see the 'SEE INSIDE' feature that has been added to their Google Maps listing and below this is the actual virtual tour that was created. Many businesses simply have a 'SEE OUTSIDE' option, which doesn't offer the same selling power as allowing online users to take a tour of the interior of your feature areas.

How Can it Benefit My Business Converts More Visitors into Customers ?

When people search online for a local business, whether it be a restaurant, cafe, motel, wedding venue or retail store, it can often be difficult to make a decision about which one to go with. Having a 360 degree virtual tour of your premises can be a real clincher when it comes to convincing online users to choose your business over a competitor.  

In fact, those who view a listing with a virtual tour are twice as likely to be interested in booking a reservation or simply visit your premises. Among 18 - 34 year olds in particular, prospects are 130% more likely to book based on a virtual tour.

Improves Your Website's Authoritativeness and Google Rankings

Because Street View Trusted is a Google service, you'll see your Google Maps rankings improve, which can be instrumental for businesses, particularly given that Google only displays 3 Google Maps listings on page 1 of their search results. If you have lots of competition, opting for this feature makes even more sense.

OUR APPROACH


• Capture selected areas that you want featured in the tour
• Listing of your 360 degree virtual tour on your Google My Business page
• Photo shoot carried out by Google certified photographer
• Creation or amendments to your Google My Business listing
• Addition of video tour to your website and Facebook page if required

MICHAELA JAMES - THE VINYL ROOM & DESIGN JUICE
We recently had Write Ahead start looking after our Google Adwords campaigns which has not only left me with more time to focus on business development but has proven to be just as efficient and successful as the SEO work they do for us. Hand in hand, the SEO work and the Google AdWords campaign management - I cant recommend their services highly enough, not to mention the cost difference from Auckland based companies that provide similar industry services. Thanks to Write Ahead our business is continually growing due to the great online presence
ALAN GILDER - ALL SEASONS PET RESORT
Write Ahead was recommended to me by another SEO specialist, who said that they were the best he had found. I certainly agree with this statement and have found Dave’s search engine optimisation knowledge and expertise throughout our working relationship to be second to none. He is an absolute pleasure to work with, quick to respond to emails and able to simplify (what I find to be) a complex process. I continue to recommend Dave to other business owners who (like me) are impressed by his prompt, efficient service which is measurable and well executed. Thank you Dave for your work and efforts, we have noticed a significant increase in business through our website that has more than covered your fee.

Candle Creations first engaged Write Ahead in 2010 resulting in a significant increase in traffic to our website. Importantly, it was quality traffic bringing about a fantastic improvement in sales. We will keep using Write Ahead as we continue to grow & expand our business as Dave’s work can be directly correlated to our sales growth. I have no hesitation to recommend Dave & Write Ahead to anyone wanting to improve their website performance.
