Imagine walking through the front doors of the Guggenheim Museum to explore the architecture and art found within its walls, right from your computer. Now imagine having this same technology to allow consumers to walk into your business for the first time online. Over the last few years Google has updated its Google Street View program to not only include the view of a business or building from the outside but now consumers can view the inside of buildings. We feel businesses should recognize this new functionality and keep it in mind for their digital marketing toolbox.
Google expanded its Street View program to help with a user’s experience online. The online search engine wants individuals to find unique ways to find solutions to their problems. Now anyone with the internet can view a local business, museum, or famous building without leaving their home.
Here are a few fun famous sites that have taken advantage of the expanded Google Street View program:
The White House
New York, NY
Sydney Opera House
Our Lady of Guadalupe Basilica
Mexico City, Mexico
Benefits For A Business
Here are just a few advantages of giving Google searchers a 360-degree view of your business:

- Second, it helps a business differentiate itself before anyone has stepped inside the facility.
- Third, it’s just plain cool!
