Write Ahead works with an independently contracted Google Street View Trusted photographer who will come to your business in Tauranga and shoot a series of photos of the inside of your premises that you wish to showcase.
These photos will be uploaded to Google Street View Trusted software, creating a 360 video tour that will feature on your website and your Google Maps page.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
