360º Virtual Tours
There are two key elements to consider here; the Google Street View tour, and the overlay which adds the navigation, photos, video, web-links and "calls-to-action" - this is what we'll embed on your website.
Shortwork are one of the original Google Street View Trusted Photographers, working with Google since 2013, creating stunning virtual tours inside and outside businesses, which improves how you appear across Google.
Why get a virtual tour?
Google virtual tours are full 360º immersive tours, hosted across the world's largest search engine.
Businesses with Google tours receive double the engagement, and showcase your facilities and features to customers 24/7 - a virtual open day, everyday.
Shortwork build bespoke overlays, matching your brand, and guiding customers to the areas you want to highlight. They area search-able by Google, so positive for SEO, and VR-enabled.

We decide what areas of your business you want to show off to your customers, and work out a "route" through the business. We can include staff/models in the tour if you want, though this will add to the shoot time.
The quote is based on the number of panoramas required, as this directly effects the post-production, as well as the shoot duration.
Remember we can also show different room set-ups within the tour, as well as your gardens, outbuildings, and the front of the business/street.
We arrange a shoot date/time at the best time for you and your business, so we fit around you, managing everything to make the process as simple as possible.
We often start early to avoid busy customer times, and work around you. Shoots normally take a couple of hours or more for a medium sized business.
The panoramas are individually stitched together, then we will remove any distractions, like the tripod shadow or scuff marks on walls, colour balance different light sources, and sharpen for Google.
The panoramas are then moderated into a tour, and uploaded to Google Maps, Search, Street View and Google Mobile Apps.
We will tell you when it's published across Google.
Most clients choose to use an overlay, adding in the menu, pop-ups with photos, video and calls-to-action. This is what we embed on your website and share on social media.
There is a one-off fee for creating the overlay, and an annual licence, which includes updating the overlay through the year with new photos/info, without any downtime.
