Google Business View

Business Media, working on behalf of Google Business View, has been in touch with the BID to offer our members a substantial discount on their services. Business View helps enhance your online presence by displaying professional photographs and a virtual tour of your business on Google.

4 in 5 customers use a search engine to find information on local businesses. By having your information readily available on Google Search, Maps and Google+, you are able to reach out to these customers and let them know about what you have to offer.

Google Business View can help market your business by offering a virtual tour of your premises, as well as street positioning and panoramic photographs of the exterior and interior of the business. In addition to this, you get help creating a Google+ listing, giving your customers additional information, such as opening hours. An example of such a listing can be found here.

All the photographs and videos that Google Business View creates are free for you to use, giving you access to high quality promotional material that you can publish on your website and on social media. Some businesses in the BID, such as Ubiquitous Chip, have already used these services, and you can look at the result on Google Maps.

Business Media has offered a £200 reduction on their prices to encourage BID businesses to join. Most businesses only need their smallest package deal, which is now £95 for members of the BID (originally £295). Please contact Business Media if you’re interested in getting more information on this, and they can talk you through the process. You can also read more about Business View on Google’s website.
