Can Google Business View Increase Your Sales?

google business view brings prospects into your store right from google maps

If you are a local business owner, you can increase not only sales, but also customer satisfaction. More on that in a bit, but first, let me explain Google Business View.

Virtual Visit to Your Place of Business

It is a little confusing because Google Business View is not the feature where Google maps users can drag the person icon over a map to switch to seeing the world as if they were standing on the street…that is Google Street View. But it is quite similar.  It is an amazing feature that lets people actually step into your business and spin around 360 degrees to see your entire place of business. Take a look at this Google Business View example as seen on Google Maps. Notice the photo in the carousel at the bottom that is highlighted…it has a circle icon rather than a camera icon. That is because it is a 360-degree view. Put your mouse on the big photo of the restaurant and drag it around. You can see the entire restaurant as if you were standing in it!

You can also see a 360-degree of the street outside…very handy when you are going there and want to have some visual cues about when you have arrived. To check that out, click on the 3rd image in the carousel that also has the circular icon. Drag your mouse around to see the surroundings as if you were standing outside the restaurant.

Is a Virtual Visit Good for Your Business?

If Google Business View enables your prospective customers to see what it will be like when they get to your restaurant or other place of business, they will feel more comfortable knowing what to expect. This advantage eliminates people from worrying about dressing for the atmosphere or perhaps just getting over the jitters of visiting the dentist office. Google Business View for your office may be beneficial if it showcases your culture or a strength. Just take a look at Google’s Data Center. Impressive, huh? Perhaps your office has a vibe that makes it appealing. For example, I have a dentist as a client and he is all about rock and roll and being casual in his pediatric dentist office. So showcasing all the old school arcade games and cool musical memorabilia on display sets his practice apart. He would be an excellent candidate for Google Business View.

So can you see that customer satisfaction can be increased because they can virtually “try before they visit”!

How to Get Your Google Business View

Getting top quality, high definition panoramic photos requires skills and the right equipment. That is why Google only allows professionally create panoramic photos to be uploaded to Google+ pages. While monopolies are rarely a good thing, in this case, Google keeps the quality high so Google maps users have great experiences and the pricing for this service with Google-trusted providers is more affordable than if you hire other qualified photographers…unless you are lucky enough to have one in the family. But still, the Google Business View service is affordable for most businesses and offers your prospective customers a peek inside so you can showcase why you are the right business for their patronage.

So, here’s the scoop on the cost of Google Business View. For a base price of $450, our Google-trusted photographer will visit your location and provide:

  • Up to 5 panoramic photos, pricing for additional:
    • 6-10, $70 each
    • 11+, $65 each
  • Up to 20 static point of interest photos
  • Upload of the photos to your Google+ page (we create it if you don’t already have a page)
  • Search engine optimization of your Google+ page using up to 15 keywords
  • Special graphic code (QR code) to include on your business cards, brochures, etc.

Plus for $45 more, we will upload the Business View to your website or Facebook. Note that the above pricing is based on the Houston, TX area, and other areas require a separate quote. However, previous experience for even remote places at like the eastern tip of Long Island in New York, the price for Google Business View was only a couple hundred dollars more.
