I am delighted to announce that I have now completed the rigorous training programme, and can now offer Google Business Photos to the Northampton area.
Brillpix 360 allows you to showcase your business via Google Business Photos – one of the most advanced interactive online services available.
Using Street View technology to create a 360-degree interactive tour – Brillpix 360 brings your business to life for online customers.
Google Business Photos appear not only on Google searches, Google Maps and Google+ Local, but can also be embedded on your own website, social media pages and much more.
How Google Business Photos works for you
Google Business Photos is perfect for any customer-facing business – restaurants, shops, gyms, hotels, salons, motor dealerships and many more.
Customers can walk around, explore and interact with your business and truly experience your business as if they were there in person.
Brillpix 360 is a Google Trusted Photographer for the Northampton area, and uses the same Street View technology used in streets throughout the world to create a high-quality, interactive 360-degree experience that will make your business stand out on Google search results and Google Maps, and enhance your Google+ Local listing. When potential customers search for your business by name on Google, they will see the images displayed directly on the search results page.
Brillpix 360 is specially trained to take high-quality photos of building interiors, making allowances for common challenges such as low lighting and tight spaces. We are certified to take pictures using fisheye lenses and precision pano-heads (mounted on tripods) that, once uploaded to Google’s processing pipelines, will be transformed into 360-degree imagery and a walk-through of your business using sophisticated image stitching, HDR, image matching and other technologies to produce panoramic virtual tours.
Here is an example of a recent tour: http://goo.gl/maps/jpjV4
What happens next
In order to be a part of Google Business Photos, you’ll need to register with Google Places – a simple online process that take now more than 15 minutes to complete.
From there, Brillpix 360, as an independent contractor, will negotiate payment directly with you, the customer, depending on individual photographic requirements. Although not affiliated with Google in any way Brillpix 360 is certified by Google because it meets the standards of quality necessary for taking the feature pictures and panoramic pictures, uploading them, moderating them and eventually publishing them on Google properties.
A photo shoot will take about an hour, but this varies depending on the size of your business. Remember that the aim of the photographs is to show customers what they would expect to see if they visited your business on a normal day.
You can work with Brillpix 360 to determine what areas of your businesses you would like to highlight, or even exclude from the shoot. Once again, the goal of the photographs is to show customers what they would expect to see if they visited your business on a normal day.
Prior to any photo shoot, Brillpix 360 will present the Google Business Photos Service Agreement specifying our services, for your acceptance. The agreement spells out (among other things) that, in return for your payment to Brillpix 360, you will own the images that have been taken.
