Every enterpreneur spends a lot of time creating the right mood for his business. What’s the best way to show it to customers? wait for them to enter or show them what’s inside when they search for a similar business?
In these days 3 persons out of 4 use Internet to decide where to eat, shop or spend time. For this reason Google launched a program who will allow everyone to visit shops, restaurants, hotels and all the other businesses straight from their computer, tablet or smarphone and see it the way they would entering it actually: Street View | Trusted
How can Street View | Trusted improve business?
Easy! it enhances visibility of your business. A lost tourist looking for a restaurant or a nice hotel; a wine lover looking for a wine cellar; a young man looking for a car dealer to buy his first car. All of them will use Google or Google Maps to find the best and nearest business who fits their needs and when they find out that they can also check how’s inside with a Virtual Tour the business gains in visibility. Try to search for “Ristorante all you can eat bologna” and see the what’s the one who gains your attention.
