What are Google Business Photos? So glad you asked! The Google Business Photo (GBP) program was created by Google to help businesses attract more customers. The program includes a very cool 360 degree interactive virtual tour that is published to the business’ Google Plus Page. The tours are created by capturing a series of panoramic images throughout the space. The images are processed and then stitched together using Google Streetview Technology, so that the viewer is taken from the street to the front of the business, through the front door and all around the space. The online viewer can take a full tour of an establishment to get a very good feel for the place, which is a potential huge marketing boost for the business owner!

The above image is of the beautiful Catta Verdera Country Club in Lincoln, CA. Click the image to go to their Google Plus page and take the tour. See just how elegant and fantastic this wedding venue is!

Google has certified photographers all over the world as “Google Trusted Independent Photographers” and Google requires that only one of their certified photographers can be contracted to create a Google 360 Tour. ¬†We became certified late last year, and have had the great pleasure of creating tours for businesses such as restaurants, yoga studios, dental offices, eye centers, hair salons, and wedding venues. We absolutely love being part of a program that is designed to showcase and highlight businesses and that has such marketing potential!

In addition to the 360 Tour, the GBP program includes taking a series of point of interest images. While all images and the 360 tour are published to the Google plus page, they ALSO can be used by the business in their online and printed marketing material. The 360 tour is easily embedded to websites and Facebook pages, and the point of interest images become the property of the business owner after the images are published.

If you know of a business that should have a 360 tour, talk to the business owner!! If you are a business owner, schedule an appointment with us to discuss how we can provide the service to you and create an amazing 360 Tour!

Here’s to business success and growth!!

Dream BIG and Love WELL,

~Rick & Teresa Anderson
