ONLINE – OPEN HOUSE FOR BUSINESSES THROUGH GOOGLE STREET VIEW | TRUSTED – “SEE INSIDE”
Denver, CO – January 2015 – All businesses, no matter how big or small, have to be edgy and innovative to get noticed online. Gabriela G Photography, understands that never-ending need for innovation and up-to-date exposure, and works as an established leader by providing professional business imagery. Gabriela of Gabriela G Photography is one of the few photographers out there trained and certified by “Google Maps – Business View,” providing virtual tours and uploading them directly to Google Maps for local businesses — a service created by Google in 2012 to help local businesses enhance their Google Maps and Google+ page. This service provides more online exposure for brick and mortar businesses in a less competitive and more cost effective way. Online searchers are able to take a virtual walk through business spaces and acquire better knowledge of the products offered. The potential clients, who are undoubtedly very busy, are able to view what the business space looks like online and can get a better determination if it is a place they would want to visit in person. It is a convenient experience that may save time and money and is very much like being there in person.
This innovative marketing service is tailored to fit a wide array of budgets. The Virtual Tour can be featured on the Google Maps listing for a business, next to the Google search results and the Google+ Local page. In addition to the Virtual Tour, there are 10 basic images included with the package. These images are released with full copyrights to the business owner and may be used for many types of additional marketing efforts. The Virtual Tour may also be embedded into business websites and/or Facebook.
“Google Business View may also enhance the feedback option on your business. Getting feedback on your Google+ business page is great word of mouth advertising available online. Feedback may be some of the greatest and most effective advertising a businesses can have.. and it’s free! Also, businesses who have virtual tours on their Google Maps business listing are set apart from their competitors,” said Gabriela, president of Gabriela G Photography.
What Clients say about the service provided by Gabriela G Photography:
“Exactly what I needed said David at ScooTours Denver Scooter Rental
Super! Super! Super! I found Gabriela G Photography on the google page that recommends photographers for “SEE INSIDE” additions to google maps and google local. Normally, I would ask other business owners for a referral, but I instead took my chances and emailed a few people from that site. Gabriela contacted me quickly, described the process, quoted a very reasonable price, and was flexible with my schedule. Our situation was unorthodox, I suppose, because our SEE INSIDE is actually outside due to the nature of our business. Still, Gabriela was nimble in adjusting her plan to make sure we received the best results. She was early for our appointment so I wouldn’t need to wait for her. She helped us set up a few things and then she was unobtrusive while doing her work. Smooth. Professional. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. The results? See for yourself at plus.google.com/+Scootoursdenver. We love the photos and we love the SEE INSIDE feature. They are exactly what we asked for, plus a few things we didn’t know to ask for but Gabriela figured out would be useful for us. She uploaded the photos and then it took a few days for google to internally process them before they were visible on our places page. All along the process, she has been very willing to guide us on improving our google local visibility and has pointed us toward very helpful resources. We may ask Gabriela G Photography to take some still shots this coming spring at some other locations because we like her style.”

Great Article posted on by Molly Meyer Google vs. Yelp—Where Should a Caterer Encourage Client Reviews?
Positive reviews are essential for all businesses.
Google is Smarter at Minimizing Spam – On Yelp, however, as many as 20 percent of its reviews have been found to be fake, according to this research.
Google+ Local Reviews: Build Me! – Google is embedding its reviews everywhere, and effectively, too. For example, search (in Google) the phrase “caterers near me.” What is the very first thing you notice?
When you click on one of those establishments (or when you Google search a specific caterer/business to begin with), the Google Places profile takes over the entire right hand side of your screen, giving you plenty of opportunity to 1) see how many people have reviewed the company (and other pertinent information), and 2) click to read those reviews (or see additional information).
Online reviews are even more essential, and growing more important all the time. For caterers, positive online reviews can mean the difference between the opportunity to submit a proposal and being completely overlooked. It can mean showing up on the first page of an organic search or on page 3.
In an effort to help build your business, caterers, it’s OK to encourage your clients for reviews. Before you do that, however, you should understand the impact a review can carry on each of the review platforms. After all, you’re fortunate if a client takes the time to go online and write a single review, so expecting him or her do to so through multiple platforms is unrealistic. That being said, you’ll want to prioritize your review encouragement so as to get the most out of that single review.
There are two big platforms for reviews: Google and Yelp. In this article, we’re going to show you that Google reviews are a bit more important than Yelp reviews—although Yelp reviews are still important enough to pay attention to. Read More
