Google Virtual Tour of Hamilton Honda in New Jersey – Click through it to see the inside of this dealership.
Some New Jersey Business owners have been taking advantage of a recently launched program from Google officially titled “Google Business Photos.” The same Street View Technology that has allowed people to virtually walk up and down local streets is now being used to take users for Virtual Tours that show the interiors of business locations.
This new offering from Google has allowed New Jersey Businesses to add a new dimension to their online presence across Google products. Google Business Photos uses Street View Technology to give internet users the ability to step inside a business for a 360 degree, interactive Virtual Tour. The Virtual Tour functions just like street view, only in much better detail. The functionality allows people to zoom in on different items, pan 360 degrees, and click on arrows to explore around inside the business location.
Google Business Photos is a paid premium service from Google, and the first of it’s kind. It is available to any business location that has already set up a free Google+ local page. The service includes the Virtual Tour described above, and a set of professional high resolution images. The one time fee is based on the size of a location and is available through photographers known as Google Trusted Photographers. Google Trusted Photographers are a small group of photographers that are trained and certified by Google to provide this service to businesses around the World.
Orsi Soos is a photographer with Black Paw Photo, based out of NY, and has been Certified by Google to provide coverage across the New York and New Jersey areas. She has this to say about the service: “Google Business Photos provides excellent exposure for businesses when customers find them online through Google. The Virtual Tour gives business owners a unique tool they can use to attract new customers that find them through Google Search and Google Maps. Not only can users look inside a business on Google products, but the business owner can also embed the Virtual Tour on their own website. When compared to typical marketing/advertising expenses, this service is an extraordinary value.”
