Do you own a café, restaurant, bar, clinic or other types of business? How much more likely would your potential customers be to stop by shopping or eating if they had the chance to take a look at how great your business is before they visit in-person? You have got the chance now to showcase your business on the most used search engine.
Your virtual tour is visible to your customers on Google Maps, Google Search, your website as well as your Facebook Business Page.
As you will learn if you tap on the arrows on the ground, this feature allows you to walk through the entire store or restaurant to get a feel of what it’s like inside.
Statistics show that when searching for businesses, people use mapping products 44% of the time and 41% of these place searches result in an on-site visit. Listings that are with photos and a virtual tour are twice as likely to generate interest
More people nowadays try to make informed decisions before they actually go to a business and try them out. With a Google Virtual Tour, it allows customers to see that the business is up to date with current technology. It is also more fun and interesting to look at. As more customers are using smartphones, the need for a Virtual Tour increases as any customer can interact with your space and decide to go to it on the fly. It is important to wow them in a small period of time before they move onto another business. It is proven that the average attention span of a Gen Z internet user is approximately 8 seconds. That means you only have a mere 8 seconds to wow them as they make up most of the internet population. The idea of a virtual tour is relatively new and it is an indicator that the business actually wants to provide the best service for its customers.
