Barley Haven in Lakewood has a great website touting a wide selection of supplies and gear for the home brewer, including 110+ beer grains. Why does the store need a Google Virtual Tour?
“When I saw it and realized the benefit to it, that’s when I decided to go ahead and go for it,” says owner Michael Phipps.
The benefit, of course, is giving customers a way to “see inside” his store virtually.
These days, for brick-and-mortar stores, it’s all about “the impression that the consumer is going to get before they even come.”
As Phipps notes, “First-time impressions are a pretty big factor, especially in retail.”
Mediamax is a certified Google Trusted Photography agency and Barley Haven is just one of many businesses we’ve shot Google Virtual Tours for recently. Besides retailers, we’ve photographed real estate offices, senior living facilities, restaurants and more.
Michael Phipps sees the Google Virtual Tour for his store as “an enhancement that makes everything look better.” It’s a key component of a “more modern, professional image” that retailers today have to maintain in their Google search results and for SEO.
Google has just announced a new name for its tools and programs aimed at helping businesses, especially small businesses, promote themselves online. “Google My Business” integrates the former Google Places for Business and the Google + Dashboard in a more seamless way. Learn more here.
