Google announced that Google Maps Business Photos program is expanding into seven new countries: Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, Russia, Singapore and Switzerland.
Deborah Schenker, Program Manager says “The Business Photos program enables merchants to create 360-degree, interactive tours of their establishments, This imagery is published on Google so potential customers can look inside and explore businesses before they go.”
Are you a business owner?
“If you are a business owner in any of these locations, joining the program is easy,” adds Schenker. “Simply hire a Trusted Photographer or Agency in your area to take pictures of your business. Using Street View technology, the photographer will then create panoramic images from the photo shoot and upload them into Google. These images will be available automatically to anyone who searches for your business on Google.com, Google Maps, Google Maps for Mobile and on your Google+ page or Places for Business listing.”
