Chown Hardware’s Enhanced Google Business View Tour

Chown Hardware’s Enhanced Google Business View Tour

As a Google Trusted photographer I love working with businesses to make beautiful interactive images. It’s even better when we can create a simple but elegant interface to view them in. Here we see the Chown Hardware Google Maps Business View tour enhanced with a basic menu overlay. This menu allows you to navigate right to the area of the tour you want to see. No need to use the navigation native to Google Maps.

Just click the image to open the tour in a new window!Are you ready to make a Google Street View Virtual Tour for your Showroom? Just fill out this form to tell me about your project!

Frye Art Museum Uses Google Maps Business View to Promote the #SocialMedium Exhibit

Frye Art Museum Uses Google Maps Business View to Promote the #SocialMedium Exhibit

On Monday the Frye Art Museum in Seattle launched their virtual tour of the crowd-curated #socialmedium exhibit.

The exhibit was crowd-curated by over 4000 people with votes on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, etc. and has received attention from the Huffington Post, Wall Street Journal, and most recently, the New York Times’ 36 Hours in Seattle piece.

The tour, produced by Soundview360, allows guests from around the world to view the artworks without leaving their desks!  I love that we were able to contribute to the Frye’s vision and the evolution of social media technology and the arts!

Extend Social Media Reach

Extend your reach on social media when you share your tour!

I love to keep an eye on how clients use their Google Maps Business View tours. This week Pental Granite & Marble told me that the “we decided to go ahead with the Seattle tour because of the wonderful response we got from the Fife tour. We had quadruple the reach on social media from the Fife tour than our usual social media posts.”
