It’s an easy streamlined process. Just give us a call at 206-400-7300. We’ll come to you for a free on-site inspection, quote you a price based on the size and accessibility of your business, and schedule your photo shoot. Jennifer will spend a few hours photographing your business. You don’t need to be closed or do anything special. Customers are not inconvenienced and faces are blurred for privacy. Payment is due at that time. Then we go back and do all the heavy lifting behind the scenes so that your virtual tour will be published in about one – three weeks depending on Google’s pipeline status. We make 28 exposures at every point in the tour, and use software to stitch them all together to make beautiful high resolution, HDR (High Dynamic Range) 360 degree panoramic tours.
What’s included in Google Street View for business interiors:
High Resolution 360 degree virtual of your business created from High Dynamic Range images and multiple exposures in all directions.
The data and code required to post your virtual tour on your own website and Facebook page.
10 Feature Photos (POIs) of feature aspects your business. These include your exterior, interior, business details, menu, plates of food, merchandise, etc. Some of these photos are specified by Google, but you may also collaborate with us on the other photos. You will be granted unlimited usage rights to all imagery published to Google. Use these photos as extra content on your website and/or other social media. (Extra photos are available as an add on.)
Discounted follow-up photo shoots. As your business changes, you may want to update your tour. When you are a valued client of See Inside: Business, we provide you with significant discounts on repeat/seasonal photo shoots.
