The Benefits of Google Street View

It might seem to be out of reach for certain companies, but virtual tours and tours are now a reality. I am able to confirm how real this is becoming.

As I entered my freshman year in college, instead of physically exploring and taking a look at the various dorms I could be living in, I decided to take an online tour of the buildings on the website of the school and made my choice.

Why did I decide to do this? It was first because it was accessible through the website of the university. It also meant that I didn’t have to dedicate to a long amount of time touring the buildings I didn’t with. This took the energy and time spent choosing between possibilities.

The same is true for businesses and customers.

The ability for potential customers to view a virtual version of your business from the inside and outside can be beneficial and Google offers the tools you need to be there.

Based on research findings, companies that have these full search results have a 29 percent higher chance customers to think about buying from and then visiting the business.

Google’s Street View and virtual tours are two tools that can help increase the customer’s interest and making decisions.

Let’s learn more about each one of these tools!

What is the reason behind Google Street View?

What is Street View do?

Street View is collection of photos taken from a panoramic perspective that is that are used in Google Maps to allow users to see and gain a better understanding of the area they’re searching for. This is also available to businesses.

Google Streetview photography puts your business on Google Maps with pictures of the storefront, however, these images aren’t exclusive uploads from Google.

Customers and businesses can also take part in this Street View photo sharing as well.

Although there are some prerequisites to take photos and posting Google Street View photos, the process has proven to be of tremendous benefit.

In actual fact, interest from customers is expected to grow by a third in the event that business listings contain photos and virtual tours.
