Is Google Street View Right for You

Google Street View is an immersive 360-degree virtual tour of your business. It is featured on your Google My Business listing and shows up in both search results and Google Maps results. Google Street View tours can also be added to your website and Facebook page to give your customers a better idea of what your business has to offer.

Why Create a Google Street View

Google Street Views for businesses inspire confidence among prospective guests and patrons. Having a tour allows you to showcase the interior of your building and gives potential guests the opportunity to explore your space before they visit. Google Street View tours also add to the quality of your business listing, which can improve the visibility of your business in searches. A quantitative market research study performed in 2015, found the following to be true for businesses with virtual tours:

  • Google listings with quality photos and a virtual tour are twice as likely to generate interest than those without
  • When searching for businesses, consumers use mapping products 44% of the time
  • On average, 41% of place searches result in an on-site visit
