Google Business View

Service from Google - set up a 360 degree tour of your business.

Seems like a cool idea and could work well for a Box. Not sure the cost. There are probably other similar services. (WFS)

Re: Google Business View

Here are some CrossFit gyms that have Google business view, i.e., indoor virtual tours:

You get the idea. All work and family safe.

I paid to have the same done for my business (a dental office). I called one of the photographers recommended by the Google business view page. The whole arrangement was settled between the two of us; Google isn't part of the deal. That means the fee will vary by photographer.

My photographer had a flat fee of $200 that inlcuded three "spins" or three 360 photgraphy points. Each additional spin beyond that was $25 more. I had him do a bunch of spins for my office. He happened to need a dental crown, so we traded services. He came out ahead on the trade, but I'm good with that.

I made sure the office was tidy, and met him early one day so the outdoor lighting was conducive to good photography. The photgrapher was in an out in less than an hour.

A few days later he shared with me all the photos he'd taken via Dropbox. He added the virtual tour to my Google map listing. He emailed instructions about how to embed the indoor virtual tour into my website, Facebook, Google+ etc. He was easy to work with, and I'd recommend the process.

I suspect that because this is a feature recommended by Google, it may help boost your website in search results. Maybe not, but it's possible.

Re: Google Business View

Google provides a list of their "trusted" photographers. You still need to shop around, but it's a start. (WFS)
