Used for location marketing, businesses that want an immersive presence that’s easily shareable over all media platforms, and the property industry.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

All our 360 panoramic photos are taken with the highest quality camera equipment all certified to be used in the ‘google trusted photographer’ program.  This enables us to provide stunning and detailed images that can then be uploaded to all the google business services such as ‘maps’ ‘street view’ and ‘google earth’.

Once we have taken all the required 360 images for your business they can then be processed and connected to your google business profile. If you don’t have one of these we can help you set one up!  If you’d like to inquire about a 360 tour for your business please contact us at dorfmeisterstudios@gmail.com or phone 07781 422980 for a free quote.

Once that is done we can then connect the images to produce an interactive tour like the one below. Try it out, using the white arrows to navigate through the space.

Study details on next slide

Quantitative market research was conducted in July 2015 by an independent market research firm to understand the impact of virtual tours on increasing consumers’ interest in local businesses (specifically in booking a reservation at a hotel or restaurant).Download overview [pdf]

  • An online survey was conducted with consumers who had searched online for a restaurant or hotel within the previous 30 days (using any device).
  • A total sample of 1201 respondents was collected between July 21st and August 2nd, 2015.
  • Different versions of a local business listing (one for a hotel, the other for a restaurant) were created to include basic info, photos and/or a virtual tour (the same media were used to create each version).

Respondents were asked to view one of the different versions for each business (in a randomized order). Each respondent viewed:

  • 1 hotel listing + 1 restaurant listing; and
  • 1 listing with a virtual tour + 1 listing without a virtual tour.Note: Presentation of alternate listings were randomized evenly and consistently throughout the field.
  • After viewing each listing, respondents were instructed to rate their interest in booking a reservation.
  • Ratings for alternate listings (with a tour versus without) were aggregated to understand impact of virtual tours on interest in the featured business.
