  • By inviting online users inside your business, potential new customers get to experience your business’s wonderful ambiance and decor, at their convenience and without the need for an appointment.
  • When first impressions count, Google Trusted Photographers provide premium quality images from within Google search platforms.
    • Google Search results
    • Google Maps
    • Google + (through your Google My Business page)
  • Hosting is free.  There are no ongoing monthly or yearly fees to pay.  Making Google’s Business View and Google’s My Business profiles some of the most cost effective and powerful marketing tools available.
  • Empowering online users to be able to see inside remote eCommerce business premises  installs confidence and trust in making an online purchase.  With so many online “Hong Kong”  businesses providing poor customer service and based outside the protection of UK consumer laws, establishing trust and confidence with potential new customers via a bricks and mortar virtual Business View tour is becoming more and more important.
  • While having a business website is always an advantage, a business website is not required for a Google My Business page and Business View.  In fact a Google My Business page is a great alternative for giving your business an easily managed online presence with no hosting overheads.
