One of the compelling benefits of having a Google Business Photos Virtual 360 Tour is sharing your business with the world!

1) Images appear directly on Google Search Results

2) Searchable on Google Maps and Google+ Local

3) Prominently featured on your Google+ page

4) Easy to embed on your website

5) Link to share on social network, blogs, emails, and more!

Here are the easy steps to embed the tour on your website. Your webmaster can do this with ease if you get stumped; but the following steps will guide you.

Do a Google search for your business. Next, launch the tour by clicking See Inside.

This is what your consumers looking for your products and or services see. 

Navigate with the arrows and / or rotate to the spot where you want your tour to start. It doesn't always have to start at the entrance. You may want to spotlight a special section of your business for that "WOW" factor or spotlight on a selection of products for sale.

Click on the link icon.

In this example, you can still navigate to a starting point.

Select Customize and Preview embedded tour. Whenever you change the preview, the code changes as well.

You can customize the size of the tour.

Copy the iframe code in the bottom portion of the screen and paste into an HTML widget on your website. 

 

 

Note that after a tour is embedded on your web page, they remain fully interactive. 

Other option include copying the short URL as is or you can use a URL utility that shortens a lengthy URL string such as Google's URL shortener - goo.gl or tinyurl

This is ideal for emails and blog posts. Go forth and tell the world!
