Now this looks like a place someone wants to visit, am I right? Attract your customers with what you already have, your business! Consumers are fascinated with media (pictures, videos, virtual tours), it catches their attention, gives them something to view and explore, it also keeps them on your site longer. 97% of consumers are searching online FIRST for local businesses, making online marketing your TOP priority.
Not only can a virtual tour help increase your online impressions by up to 25% immediately, research also shows that they help with search engine rankings : Search Engine Trends. Businesses have seen increases of up to 60% in direct traffic to their location after creating a virtual tour on Google. Locally, Texotic Pets had a great increase in business from their virtual tour, Owner Jean Pray says: "Thanks for the tour, any small business should call you, what a great way to advertise!!".

How does this help businesses?
This is another question I am very familiar with, this goes back to using street view. How many times have you peeked at the outside of a building wondering to yourself "What does the inside look like". I have wondered this a million and one times, and I think about it even more now that I am a photographer for Google Business View. Giving potential customers the ability to pop inside at their convenience and virtually browse around saves them time and money. Flexibility is another word I like to use for Google Business View, since it is available to your customers on so many platforms.
Let your customers discover your company
