Google Business View | Google Maps
Are you a local business trying to get more people in the door? Introducing Google Business View – the newest way to showcase your business and store front, influencing web users to choose you over the competition. Google allows Google Certified Business View photographers and agencies to take 360 degree photographic tours of the interior of their businesses!
Once you reach out to an agency, a certified photographer will schedule a time to survey how many “points of interest” there are at your local business. From here, the agency would put together how much time will go into your photo shoot.
After the initial site survey, your trusted photographer will perform a 360 degree shoot of the main areas in your business, averaging 1-2 hours.
Your Google Certified Agency will upload, edit, and publish your Google Business View Tour to your Company’s business listing within 6-10 days.
Check out what Google Business View customers across the country have to say about the new Google feature for their business.
