Google Street View and virtual tour photography
Businesses of all types become much more dependent on their online presence, and Google Street View and the Virtual Tour are excellent tools to push your business towards more interest, generate more online visits and convert your visitors into potential customers.
What is Google Street View and what does the Virtual Tour mean?
Google Street View is a technology that was launched in 2007 and is featured in different Google products. It provides panoramic views from various positions along streets worldwide.
The Virtual Tour is an online interactive way of exploring a building for example. It provides 360-degree views and if there are multiple areas, rooms to discover, the visitors can control which areas of the featured building they want to see. There are further possibilities to enhance it, like applying a so-called overlay to add more information or even a short video to push the potential of this marketing tool even further.
The benefits of Google Street View And Virtual Tour Photography

These tools will help your business by giving new visitors and potential clients the chance of taking a first look around your office or property without having to travel there in person. For most customers, the Google Street View and the Virtual Tour features will save a considerable amount of time, as most of them will be able to decide if they want to visit the business premises in person or not.
Potential customers can view the tour on different types of devices, on computers, tablets and mobile phones too, meaning that they can even search for your business while on the go.

The virtual tour will help your business stand out of the competition. How? Consider it a marketing asset to harness the power of Google and give an edge to your business.
Visitors can use these features 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, even if your business is closed. It can appear in a variety of Google Products: Google Maps, Google Search, Street View, Google+ and Google Earth.
The Virtual Tour will boost SEO so it can even help your website to rank higher on Google search results page.
To some extent, humans are all visual learners, meaning that we are collecting and interpreting information coming predominantly from visual sources. A considerable number of people are making their decisions based on visual sources. When it comes to buying habits, the numbers talk for themselves. According to different surveys, around 80% (or more) of the population decides whether to buy something or not based mainly on the visual appearance of the given product/service.

I will be taking high-quality still images of the requested parts of the building interior/exterior which are then stitched together – using panoramic camera technology – into 360-degree views.
Depending on what we agreed upon, I will be implementing a special overlay on the panoramic image, to add more information and more depth to the visual.
