Scheduling and Photo Shoot Logistics

Unlike many other Google Trusted Agencies, everyone you will interact with at American Marketing & Publishing is a company employee, not an independent contractor. This simply allows us to serve our busy, hard working business-owner clients more reliably. When you contact us, a Scheduling Coordinator will visit your business so that we can understand the staging and complexity of the shoot, provide you a firm price quote, and to arrange the precise day and exact time of your photo shoot.

All photography services are performed by an experienced, Google-Certified Photographer, using a tripod-mounted, technologically sophisticated camera with specialized software. Photo shoots can typically be performed within an hour or two, depending on the size of your business, though larger or more complex shoots can take significantly more time. After the photo shoot, the imagery is stitched with Google’s proprietary software to become a 360 degree virtual tour. The tour is put through a quality assurance protocol and uploaded to Google, where it is hosted and re-displayed to consumers via Google Search and Google Maps next to your business listing information and hours.

After the tour goes live online at Google, you or your webmaster can embed the virtual tour on your own website or social media outlets with a very simple four-click process. We make it easy for you to take advantage of the powerful Google Street View imagery. From contact to ‘go-live’ it can take as little as a week and a half to put your tour online. Please, contact us for scheduling availability.
