Google has taken Street View images of almost the entire world. As part of this process, they have captured most businesses. While most of these Street View images show a great view of the street, they probably don’t show a great view of your business. For example, your business address could be associated with a Street View image that looks like the one that used to be posted for Cowichan Cycles:
Google understands that you may prefer to use an image that better represents your business. That is why they started the Google Trusted Photographer program. As part of this program, Greg Nuspel at Story in Focus can create a Street View image that showcases your business and he can post that image on Google Maps. Story In Focus did this for Cowichan Cycles and this is how their Street View looks now:
The new image has all the interactivity you expect with Street View and it features the business prominently.
With the help of a Google Trusted Photographer, you can also have an enhanced listing created for your business. Story In Focus helped Cowichan Cycles enhance their Google Maps listing by adding a virtual tour of the inside of their business. Now potential customers can tour the outside of the store and they can See Inside too. What better way to showcase the quality products and services they provide?
Try it out for yourself. Go to Google Maps and search for your business. What do you see? Do you think it’s time to improve your image? Complete tours start at $400.00. Give Story In Focus a call at 250.510.7971. Greg will happily come by to discuss your needs and provide an estimate.
