17 Jan George Street Is Going Virtual
George St is set to become the 1st in the borough to offer a virtual experience to its customers.
Google Maps Business View is the latest Google product and an expansion of Google Street View. Potential customers will be taken on a 360 degree panoramic and interactive virtual tour of the inside of a shop or business. All vital details about the business will feature at the top of Google when the business name is searched, then by clicking ‘See inside’ a potential customer will be able to virtually look around. Customers will also be able to navigate to the front door of the premises through Google Maps and then interactively walk inside. The virtual tour can be accessed and linked to the website of the business.
Daryl Jackson a local Google Trusted Photographer is managing the George Street project.
Daryl is Director of Tour.Media a company that he has set up with the help of The Prince’s Trust and support from Get Oldham Working.
Daryl said, “A Google virtual tour produced by Tour.Media can enhance the presence of a business across Google, improving the online visual appeal and help to increase sales and enquires. Every virtual tour can be added to any website which will boost the credible content and improve the Google ranking of the website”.
