What is Street View Trusted?

Most of us are familiar with Google Street View. This is just that! Except instead of outside, on public roads and streets, it takes place inside your business. Instead of having a google car driving through, you can hire a Google trusted photographer (I'm one of them) to come inside your business, and take special photospheres, stitch them together and craft a virtual tour. It is then uploaded, and you can view it on Google maps, your Google Listing, or even put it on your website.

Street view - inside your business.

One time fee. No monthly fees.

Lasts as long as you stay at your location, and your business is open.

Upgrades your online visibility and web presence.

Here is a quick video that helps to explain.

How much?

It varies depending on the size of your business. Usually $50 / per photosphere (stop along the virtual tour). So a small boutique shop will be cheaper than a large sprawling hotel. Photospheres are ideally 3-10 feet apart. So a small shop might have 5, or $250. Sometimes with larger jobs I can apply to Google for a volume discount.  If you let me know what you're business is like, size and layout, I can do my best to get you a quick and accurate estimate.

What does it take to book?

Very simple.

Contact me:  david@davidiam.com 519-801-1234 I'm certified to provide clients with Street View for their business across Ontario.

I'll get you a quote right away, and can be over within a week to photograph your business. Street View inside your business is linked to a verified Google Plus page. If you have one already, the process is super quick. If you don't have one you should! They are free, and might add a few days waiting for it to be verified by Google. I can help take care of this, so it's no extra stress for you.

A real world example:

Finally, here is an example of a recently completed project, that I did for an antique Furniture store. Within 2 days from the shoot, it was complete, up live on their Google page and on the front page of their website. They have received excellent customer feedback already.

Small business marketing.

There is so much to do and so little time. I want to help with that.

 

Photography

Phones are so good now. You can produce a lot of great images on your own. I get that. However, when you're looking for that edge in credibility, polish, and professionalism. Customers can still recognize the good from the average. You might be after flawless shots that are going to be featured full size on your website. Or might be after a volume of shots that you can fill your Instagram feed with, headshots or perhaps it's covering an event. Whatever the scope of your project, I'm there to handle it.

Video / videography services

Wow. What a journey it has been. My video services have taken off. As attention spans drop, and clients are more and more used to consuming media via video. As small business people, it can be a struggle to keep up. This is something, unlike photography, is much much harder to pull off on your own. That said, a high quality, well edited video can be a game changer. Feature it on your site, Facebook page, or reformat it and use it for Instagram. Video isn't the future. It is right now.

WEB Marketing / Advertising / websites

Just about every day I get some email or call asking me to choose them for SEO or Google Ads, or all kinds of stuff. For every success story, it seems there are three nightmares out there waiting to happen. To truly take advantage of all offerings out there, it takes a ton of education and energy to wrap your head around it all. I can tell you where the low hanging fruit is. You and I both know you do not have time to do it all. Facebook? Instagram? Adwords? SEO? Website? Print ads? Hashtags? Where are you going to get the most bang for your buck? Where is the best ROI in money and in time? I've successfully navigated these waters with a number of small, local businesses now, and the results are amazing. I want to focus on the most impactful, yet least time and money consuming efforts.

Short Product videos.

I've recently been doing a number of small, impactful and highly shareable product videos (in this case it is food, but it could be almost any product or service). Here is a set from Keystone Alley Cafe. The idea here is some slick, really high quality looking videos that they can use on their Instagram, to boost engagement and exposure and really stand out from the crowd. Under one minute. To the point. The idea is, wow, yum! I want that. I know where we gotta head for lunch. They can @ tag a friend, and help the ad reach others.
