Why should I get a Google Street View virtual tour?

Business increasingly is going online. The majority of customers look online at a business before actually going to that business. A 360-degree virtual tour through Google Street View is a great way to present your business online and improve your overall online presence. Google statistics have shown that these tours increase customer engagement, increase visits to a business website and increase actual customer foot traffic to the business.

Where do people see the virtual tours?

The tours are visible in Google search results and on Google Maps. They can be seen on a desktop computer, smartphones and tablets. You will also receive embed code if you desire so you can put the tour on your business website or on social media sites.

Who will be doing my photo shoot?

Google has certified independent photographers to perform Street View photo shoots with qualified professional equipment. Midwest 360 Tours has certified photographers to perform your photo shoots.

How much does a virtual tour cost?

Pricing varies between providers and is based on the size of a business and the number of shots desired. Each tour is different and cost differs for each tour. Most businesses should expect to spend a minimum of $300 for a tour.

Are there ongoing costs?

No, the fee for a Street View tour is a one-time fee. There are no ongoing charges or hosting fees. However, if you at some point wish to change or update your tour, then you will be charged for a new tour.

How long does the process take?

Street View photo shoots work around the schedule of your business and are designed to be of minimal impact to your operations.  It is best to set up a shoot when the business is free of people. Depending on the size of your business, a tour can take from 30 minutes to a few hours.  After the shoot, it can take as little as a few days to get the tour online.
