Virtual Tours in restaurants are becoming increasingly popular, but why?
Stay Up to Date
If you’ve recently renovated, moved, or somehow changed your restaurant, it’s a perfect time to purchase a Virtual Tour, or get a reshoot! This lets potential customers see the “look,” the size, and the atmosphere of your restaurant before they visit. Virtual Tours are also great for new restaurants, because it shows your drive and commitment to stay modern and up to date.
Attracts More Customers
Most people already look up new restaurants on the Internet before going or booking a reservation, so a Virtual Tour might be the final factor that attracts them to your restaurant rather than a different one. It also brings your restaurant to the cutting edge, which is very attractive to potential customers, especially younger ones!
Increases SEO and Website Traffic
Virtual Tours are statistically proven to increase SEO and web traffic. Posting your Virtual Tour on social media websites and your website will show up on Google’s algorithm, and this will put your restaurant higher on search results. Also, clicking through an embedded Virtual Tour increases engagement and the time spent on your website, which further improves both SEO and web traffic.
Virtual Tours are one-time payments to the photographer and to Google Maps, so that means no recurring costs! Your tour stays up on Google Maps indefinitely, or until you get a reshoot. In addition, the photographer usually puts the tour on Google Maps for you, so the only thing you have to worry about is the shoot itself.
