Often the Google Street View virtual tours offer so much visualization that they awe your viewers and really help you stand out from the crowd. Sometimes, though, more information could make a big difference if how much someone appreciates and understands the tour or in their likelihood of purchasing or signing up for services. That’s where the Tourdash upgrade comes in.
What is Tourdash?
Tourdash is a feature that takes Google Business View virtual tours to the next level. It also puts a lot of creative potential in the hands of the business owner instead of just the tour photographer/designer. Since no one knows your business better than you do, it allows you to provide viewers with specific information, show off specialties, allow them to make reservations or contact you from the tour. Additionally, it helps you learn about your visitors and what appeals to them most with analytics.
What Kind of Businesses Will Benefit From Tourdash?
While almost every business could benefit from a Tourdash upgrade, some industries could especially benefit from the awesome features offered by Tourdash. Here are a few examples of specific industries and what Tourdash can do to help:
RETAIL — Retail businesses will find the hotspot features especially helpful in showcasing special offers, promotions, and new products. These can appear at a certain point in the tour or be spots that viewers can click on.
RENTALS — Whether renting rooms for events, rooms at a bed and breakfast, or furniture for home staging, a Tourdash can highlight features of the rooms to show what makes you a more valuable choice than competitors. You can also include a button that will take viewers directly to your calendar, booking page, or instant contact. The navigation menu will also allow viewers to jump quickly to a specific area they are considering or comparing without having to walk through the whole tour to get there.
RESTAURANTS — Not only will customers be able to see the seating areas, but you can also feature menus, weekly specials, and information about specific dishes or beverages. Separate rooms can be linked to in the navigation menu for hosting groups. A button can also be built in to contact for reservations.
EDUCATION — Buildings that are educational, such as in universities, museums, galleries, and more can benefit from Tourdash. Universities and academies can give students the opportunity to take a look around and get familiar with the campus before their first semester or when choosing a school. Other educational businesses, such as museums and galleries, can offer a glance at the artwork and artifacts they feature. The hotspots will allow for providing information about individual pieces, while the booking feature can be used to offer tickets. The hotspot windows can also discuss new artists or special exhibitions.
Why Your Virtual Tours Need Tourdash
Even if you are not in one of the above industries, a Tourdash upgrade still has many great features that can benefit every business. The navigation menu allows viewers to navigate quickly and easily within your virtual tour by taking them to specific stops along the tour without having to navigate to get there manually. These points of interest can be especially helpful by allowing clients to bypass long “walks” that have relatively little information and helping clients to compare two areas (such as picking a dining area in a restaurant). With Tourdash, viewers can also:
- Witness a virtual tour that automatically rotates slowly without having to do it yourself.
- Click on objects in a tour to open a pop-up window that gives more information by way of text, images, videos and more.
- See the most recent sales and offers by way of pop-ups
- View your changes instantly! Tourdash provides the business owner the ability to edit the Tourdash him/herself without our help. Change it as many times as you like to showcase different “hotspots.”
