A Google Street View Trusted Photographer for the UK

Increasingly people are using Google to plan outings, shopping trips and holidays, searching for and choosing the best places to stay, to eat and be entertained at. With more and more choice Google Street View helps consumers make well informed choices. Using Street View technology people can browse your restaurant, hotel or shop directly from Map View 24 hours a day. Using Google Maps on smartphones and mobile devices to find, choose and navigate to nearby businesses is commonplace and not just on Google Android systems.

Google Maps Business View has just re-branded as Google Street View to seamlessly integrate it into Google Maps, Google Earth universe. It can really put your business squarely on the map. It can stand alone too giving your business a greater online presence than many websites can. There are no domain name registration fees, no ongoing hosting or admin fees. You can easily manage your own Google+ Business page. If your business does have a website then the whole thing can be easily embedded there too and the more about you there is on Google the better you will rank. See My Blog for more

Working full time as a Google trained and certified Google Maps Business View photographer and now Google Street View Trusted Photographer I’ve been lucky enough to shoot a variety of businesses from restaurants, bars, galleries, opticians & gift shops to churches. The basic service remains the same and includes a series of premium 360 degree panoramas or photospheres shot in sequence and stitched together to create a virtual tour of a business place. All tours include a set of 10 stills to highlight products and services provided.

As a courtesy we help you set up your free Google+ page, edit, upload, process and publish your virtual tour. You will be invoiced upon satisfactory publication. You get a disc of all the images for use in your own website or in print or however you see fit – you own the images! Small businesses will take around an hour to photograph, and appointments for the shoot can be arranged to suit your business, so there will be minimal disruption!

It is a very economical way of increasing your visibility in all Google based searches. As a marketing investment it offers best value when compared with expensive annual subscription plans to the likes of Yell. Google ranks top! There is a one off fee for your photography and your page is FREE. The virtual tour will be hosted by Google for FREE for as long as you want. Some businesses update their tours annually or even seasonally to reflect stock changes and we can offer a package with you to do this.
