Do Small Business Benefit from a Virtual Tour?
We often hear something like this: "My store is old... my office is small... we have nothing that customers would care to see online!"
We have spoken with thousands of businesses throughout NH, ME, VT, and MA, and have discovered that most small businesses don't think they need a virtual tour, and when they in fact want one, they worry it will make their business somehow look worse. Most businesses get excited by the thought of giving customers the chance to see their business online, and sign up once they realize what we are talking about. However, many believe their business is too small...old... or just worry if it won't look good for their particular business. However, one thing we always try to get across to potential clients, is that even if nobody ever views your tour (which is simply not the case, tours are often viewed much more than business photos), you would still benefit from having a virtual tour done because it helps your business appearance on Google, and since our tour rank is high, you benefit even more by having Make it Active, LLC do a Google Virtual Tour for your business!
Think of it as a full page ad in the phone book (if you are old enough to remember phone books). Full page ads always showed your customers what you wanted to show them, rather than simply a business name and phone number. That is how Google Street View tours should be thought of.
