Google Business Photos Now Available in New York and New Jersey Through Black Paw Photo
Submitted by: Black Paw Photo
(OPENPRESS) March 13, 2012 -- Google Business Photos is a New Program that has recently become available to business owners in New York City and surrounding areas in New York and New Jersey. The Business Photos program gives business owners a new way to interact with customers by providing a dynamic 360-degree virtual tour of their location. This allows customers to walk around and explore their business before walking in the door. The virtual tour appears across all Google products including the business owner's places page, Google Maps, and Google Search.
In order to add Google Business Photos to a location, a business must have or create a Google Places Page, which is a free service available from Google. To schedule the photo shoot, business owners must then contact a Google Trusted Photographer that covers their area. Appointments are sometimes difficult to come by, as this highly desired program currently offers limited coverage in most locations. Black Paw Photo is a New York City based Google Trusted Photographer with experience covering locations throughout the area, and regularly carries out photo sessions for business locations in New York City, Long Island, and New Jersey.
Google Business Photos will bring customers inside a local business using technology that provides an experience similat to Google street view. Now customers can walk around a business location in much the same way they've walked down various streets on Google maps. As a online marketing tool, Google Business Photos give an edge to those who add the service to their Google Places Pages. Google Business Photos will be visible through Google Search, Google Maps, and Google Places. The added virtual tour encourages customers to click into the business and have a look around. It may also increase the likelihood that the searcher will maintain interest in a business and click through to the company's actual website. Business Photos has the potential to grab the attention of prospective customers and help a business keep that attention.
Another extremely beneficial feature of the Virtual tour is that it is embeddable. In much the way a YouTube video is embedded, a business owner may grab the code for the Virtual Tour and embed it anywhere on their own business website. Not only can the whole tour be embedded, but it may be embedded multiple times and from any starting viewpoint within the tour.
The Google Business Photos service also includes 10-15 High Resolution, Professionally Produced Photographs which will be added to a business location's Google Places Page. These images give customers a view of important business features and help round out the entire service so that business owners are provided with a powerful internet marketing tool. Business owners are also provided with their own copy of these photos in full resolution.
Google Business Photos is a fresh new program that is catching on as one of the hottest new marketing tools for businesses that want to stand out in Google search results and other Google Products. Just the way street view spread to cover almost every corner of the USA, it will only be a matter of time before customers will be able to virtually walk into stores, restaurants, and other businesses across New York and New Jersey. Appointments for Google Business Photos are available through Black Paw Photo for business locations in New York City as well as surrounding areas of New York and New Jersey.
