Google Business View

If you own a restaurant (or even if you just love food), you know
we eat with our eyes first.

If you own a business that aims to impress customers with an eye-catching environment – a retail store, spa, wellness centre, salon, event venue, cosmetic medical or dental practice, fitness facility, etc. –
you know looks matter.

Your customers are seeking out their options online, and making decisions on where to spend their hard-earned cash before their feet hit the pavement. Your online presence is your first opportunity to make an impression. The old cliché still holds true: a picture is worth a thousand words.

Shouldn’t yours have the edge over your competitors?

 

Google Business View lets your customers feast their eyes on your business before they set foot through your door. Google Search listings that feature images – especially stunning professional photography like ours – are statistically proven to attract more eyeballs and invite more click- throughs to your website. Your website is the virtual welcome mat to your business. Let’s get them knocking at your door.

Google Business View gets you noticed – in Google Search, Google Maps, Google Ads and Google+. BK Studios is an accredited Google Trusted Photographer that specializes in creating the eye candy that lures your customers in.

What is Google Business View and what will it do for my business?

You have used Google Street View to “get a feel” for a neighbourhood you have never visited before. Google Business View uses the same Street View technology to give your customers a 360 degree visual tour of your business. Professional panoramic images enable your customers to preview the experience they will have in your location(s) and fast-track their decision to choose YOU.

Anyone with computer, tablet or smart phone will be able to virtually walk directly off Google Maps or Google Street View and into your business. All Google Map technologies seamlessly integrate with one another on all platforms.

You can easily embed Google Business View and the supporting photography into your current website and raise the bar of your visual brand at the same time.

Best of all…

Google Business View enables you to feature innovative business photography to not only showcase your store front and interiors, but to optimize your presence on Google search, Google Ads, Google Maps and Google+.

Google Analytics, the industry standard for monitoring and measuring the effectiveness of your website content, works hand-in-hand with Google Business View. Now your website imagery can be one more element to track how your customers are interacting with your site. Getting your business listed on Google Business View is smart, simple, fast and effective. Google Business View is the most affordable and measurable tool your marketing budget can buy.
