How virtual tours help
When people search on Google for businesses, they can be exposed to much more than just a phone number or web address. Listings are massively enhanced by the addition of 360 virtual tours that invite people inside your business. The 360 tours appear on your business listing results.
Your Google Business listing
Previously, Google ran a programme called ‘See inside’ (also known as Google Indoor Streetview or Google Business View). This no longer exists, instead you have a Google Business Listing (“Google My Business”). This listing appears when someone searches for your business or the service you offer. Anyone can add content to your listing. Thus, your customers can take pictures and add them to your listing. Of course, this could be an issue, but it has the advantage that good 360 images will be ranked higher on the listing. Meanwhile, poor-quality images should sink lower down the results. Thus, having superb 360s on your business listing has become even more important.
Google’s big priority is offering quality content to their users, and the change reflects this priority. It’s nothing to worry about if you’re investing in great, user-friendly imagery.
When people search on maps, you will again have the advantage of being seen along with your 360.
Why Trust Us?
There are a growing number of Google Trusted Photographers. So why should you talk to us about your 360s?
Our clients and experience
When you work with us, you’ll be joining companies who value quality, innovation and discretion. We work with the Royal Household, Land Rover, The Royal & Ancient Golf Club at St Andrews, M&S, British Airways, Canon and Emirates to name just a tiny selection. We’ve been specialists in 360 images for over 2 decades, constantly refining our equipment and processes for optimum results.
We shoot at exceedingly high resolution. We are incredibly proud that the Royal Household are using 360s we shot a decade ago alongside 360s we’ve shot recently. Our virtual tours stand the test of time, offering an excellent return on your investment.
Our 360s include HRDI as standard – where you see the full range of light from bright highlights (such as views through windows) to dark shadows. We achieve this by layering images of many different exposures over each other.
We build the interface that displays your virtual tours. This can include info points within the 360s, maps, floorplans or even video links and voiceovers. We estimate this according to your needs. If you have ideas of content you’d like to overlay on your 360 virtual tour, talk to us and we’ll see what we can do for you.
You’ll have a dedicated project manager, who will ensure your project goes to plan at every stage. From helping you with advice on how to dress the space ready for the shoot, through to logistics, and keeping you updated on post-production through to delivery; they are with you every step of the way.
What does it cost?
Every project is different. Each client’s requirements are different. We don’t have a ‘one price fits all’ solution – just as the photography is tailored to you, each project is estimated according to the brief. After an initial discussion, we provide a clear estimate for you that gives you various options to select.
Getting premium virtual tours for your business is easy. Get in touch with us on 020 360 30231 or use the contact form and we’ll respond to you as soon as possible.
