Vancouver, BC – Vancouver Google Street View Trusted Photographer and award-winning Search Marketing Specialist Sherman Hu published a new Google Street View 360 virtual tour walkthrough in January 2019 for Bernie Pawlik of Pawlik Automotive in Vancouver. With 1,831 views and counting, this 360 virtual tour campaign aims to double consumer interest to call or book from visitors who use Google Maps to search for an auto repair shop nearby.
An IPSOS-Google study shows consumers use mapping products 44% of the time when searching for businesses. On average, 41% of the place searches result in an on-site visit. The study showed that listings with photos and virtual tours are twice as likely to generate interest.
Google Street View Trusted Photographer Sherman Hu shared, “I’m encouraged when Vancouver business owners proactively reach their targeted audiences through multiple channels – both offline and online – and show forward-thinking with an understanding that Google Maps is a critical aspect of their digital mix. Google Maps occupies dominant digital real estate in search results on a mobile phone, and if close to half of your consumers search for a visual representation of what your business looks like before calling or booking, why not offer them an impressively immersive experience that will increase your opportunities for conversions? Bernie Pawlik is a forward-thinking business owner in Vancouver, and it was a treat working with him to produce this virtual walkthrough for his customers.”
