Google Street View Trusted 360° virtual tours

Why choose a Google tour?

Google Street View Trusted is an extension of Street View.
Using Street View technology, it allows online users to take a 360° virtual tour around your business, any time of day, 24/7, 365 days a year.


Show off your facilities, stay ahead of the competition and turn online customers into paying customers. Premium imagery is also added to your presence in Google Search results, Google Maps and Google+. Embed the tour into your website (like the example above) and share the link on social media. 

Step one

The first step to a Google Street View Trusted tour is creating a FREE verified Google Places Map Pin and a Google Business Page. Most businesses have one already set up but if you haven’t, don’t panic - we can help you set this up quickly and easily. You now have the perfect landing page for people to find your business via Google searches and Google Maps. If your business does not have a storefront, don't worry - we can create a custom tour for you.

Step two

Discuss your business needs with us and receive a free quote. The cost of a virtual tour is determined by the size of the space and complexity of the shoot, but the product is designed to be incredibly affordable for businesses large or small. Agree on a  convenient time for your shoot.

The shoot

Most shoots are non-disruptive and the business can carry on as normal during the photography. Some businesses prefer the space to be empty of people during the shoot. Others like the tour to appear as it is on a normal day with customers around. People’s faces and licence plates in the photographs are subject to blurring as per Google’s privacy policy. Allow two hours for the photo shoot and ensure your business looks its best before the photographer arrives. This may mean hiding garbage bins and de-cluttering. Ensure someone is on-hand to help with any last-minute adjustments.

The extras

While we are shooting your virtual tour, why not take advantage of having a professional photographer on the premises and have Real View Image take additional professional still images of your business?
These can be used for your other marketing activities, and uploaded to your Google Business Page to further enhance your online presence.

Online

After the photography is completed, processing the images takes about a week. Imagery is then uploaded to Google and the stunning 360° tour is created, going  live in a few weeks. Tours are hosted by Google free for life, with no on-going fees or payments.

Your virtual tour and photography reside on your Google Business Page. Once live, it can be embedded in your own website (like the example above). It can be tracked via Google Analytics, shared via social networking sites and appears in Google Search results and Google Maps. Your customers can view the tour on their PC, Mac, smart phones and tablets.
