360º Panoramic Photography and Virtual Tours
If you have a business that people visit, attractive offices, or both, you will really benefit from letting people take a 360 Panoramic Tour of them on your Google listing and on your website.
The tours we shoot for venues people visit bring in new customers by showing them what a great location it is. The tours for attractive offices and work environments add to the company’s credibility with prospective customers and help attract the right quality of new staff.
At Slamm Productions, we have shot 360 panoramic photography for many clients. These tours are for both their Google Street View listings and their websites. We are achieving millions of views for our customers on 360 Google Street View Tours we have shot. Virtual Tours are far more believable than just photographs and thus will attract new customers by giving them a real feel for your location. Once shot, we usually create two types of tour for you.
360 Google Street View Tours
Once you have approved the tour we will upload the 360 Google Street View Tours to your free Google Search listing. These then navigate in the same way as Google Street View.
Virtual Tours for your website
The Virtual Tours for your website link the 360º panoramas together with hotspots which are links from room to room or across rooms with bespoke navigation buttons. We can also add stills, video, information boxes, hyperlinks and audio to each panorama as required.
The 360 panoramic photography shoot
Shooting the 360 panoramic photography is normally quite simple and should not cause any disruption. It’s often best to shoot when there are no customers inside and we are very happy to do the shoots out of office hours. We normally have the edited tour back to you within 3 days for approval. We then upload the tour to your Google listing and supply you with a copy for your website.
Virtual Tours on websites and 360 Google Street View Tours are proven to bring in new customers. They are far more believable than just photographs and give prospective customers a real feel for the place. They can be great for attracting staff too. They increase retention on your Google listing and on your website and improve clickthrough rates which in turn improves your Google page ranking.
We can add video content, either set to play within the 360 or as a stand alone video, adding greatly to the overall immersive experience. Also audio; be it descriptions, messages or music can be added to each 360º and set to play when that 360º is reached.
How to navigate
We put the 360º panoramas into a tour which viewers can navigate through at their own speed and in the directions you want. They link together via hotspots. These operate in the same way that Google Street View navigates. On the tour for your website we can also add custom designed hotspots, pop up boxes, videos and stills, plus links to web pages. Tours can also be set to play automatically.
Please have a look the sample panoramas below. The first one is a tour that is embedded in our clients website and features an aerial 360 and aerial video footage (shot by us) which we included in the tour. You can interact with the images and navigate to different images and the aerial video using the hotspots and control bar at the bottom. Below this example are tours we have shot and uploaded directly to our clients Google listings.
