Google Street View Trusted

Everyone’s heard of Google, right?  Well, let Focal Point Photos bring the power of Google to your online presence through the stunning and visually engaging Google Street View Trusted service.  

Hardy Ahlhaus from Focal Point Photos is one of a select group of professional photographers accredited by Google to provide photographic services for the Google Street View Trusted.

‘Google Street View Trusted’ is a self-guided ‘virtual walk through’ of your business which utilises Google street view technology.  Beautifully presented and in vivid colour, your virtual walk through will bring your business to life on the screen in front of the prospective customer.  With over 85% of Australians choosing to search for products and services on-line, it makes sense to give them the best viewing experience.  When your business appears in a Google search undertaken by the customer, they are presented with ‘virtual walk through’ as part of your business listing shown in the search results.  The ‘virtual walk through’ will also appear in Google Maps when the red marker on the map is clicked.

Some of the benefits of partnering with Focal Point Photos and the Google Street View Trusted service include:

  • Greater engagement with prospective customers using an interactive experience with a ‘wow’ factor;
  • Potential customers can enter and experience your business with 360 degree views on a 24/7 basis;
  • Your ‘virtual walk through’ is accessible from PC’s, tablets and smartphones;
  • No ongoing fees or hosting costs.  You only pay a once off photographic fee for our work;
  • Once the ‘virtual tour’ appears on-line, you can embed it into your business website, social media and even email signatures.
Hardy Ahlhaus of Focal Point Photos has undertaken the rigorous accreditation program delivered by Google to achieve their certification as a ‘Google Street View Trusted Photographer’, and is authorised to undertake this exciting and innovative work for Google and clients in Toowoomba, Brisbane, South East Queensland and all other regions and states in Australia.

How does it all come together?  Focal Point Photos have prepared a short 1-minute video that explains the process and work that would be done for you.  Please follow the below link to view the video.
