What is Google Street View?
We all have become very familiar with Google Maps. We know how to click and drag our mouse around to enjoy 360° virtual reality views of the road. Even on our cell phones, we expect to pinch, zoom and swipe our way around our city streets and always feel a sense of admiration for street views which we are all too familiar with. Google Business View combined with our 360 Virtual Business tours, allows people to do the same thing—pinch, zoom, and walk around—inside businesses.
In an effort to keep pushing the boundaries of the search engine market industry, Google has raised the bar yet again and is now tapping into the market of hungry business owners who are looking for advantages at every angle to stay at the forefront of their industry. Google Business View allows those businesses to tell clients “I am proud of my business and know you’ll love us too!”
Google Street View Virtual Tours Are Here to Stay
Using the same Google Maps technology people searching on the web for services can now discover not only your profile, but can get a very interactive 360° virtual tour. Just think about the all the advantages for a second. Whereas before your business could have blended in with every other competitor with all the boring photos, business descriptions and promises, now people have a real reason to hang around and investigate your Google Local page, website, and business.
Chances are the longer they stay on your business page, the better the chance of them doing business with you. With so many thousands of businesses out there trying to reach the same clients as you, you need every advantage you can get, wouldn’t you agree?
