Looking to enhance your online presence using virtual tours through Google Business Photos, similar to Street View’s 360-degree technology? With Business Photos added to your website, Google Map, Social Media pages and Google+ Local account, your guests can explore and interact with your property before they arrive or convince them to book their online reservation.
Here are some simple steps to get you started:
- Select a Trusted Photographer certified by Google
- Schedule a date with your Photographer for a photo shoot and determine a fair price based on how many tours/photos you request. Estimated cost is $800 for 15 shots depending on your location.
- View your images online within days of your photo shot when automatically uploaded by your Photographer. View an example from our client, Regency Suites Hotel, who has already taken advantage of this technology. When you click on the circle near your cursor, you will move forward and into other views.
Following these steps will help to leverage your Internet presence and take advantage of this technology. Google’s search market share for the month of April was 66.5% and Google is consistently the top referrer for all of our clients. Utilizing newer technology that Google has to offer will certainly help you increase your quality visitors.
