With Google Business View, customers can now explore, walk-through, and truly experience a business like never before. By offering an immersive, interactive virtual tour of their business the program aims to give customers a better sense of the layout, decor, and beauty of a business interior.

Recognized and awarded by Google as their first Top-Performing Company in New York, Maureen believes, "It is an incredible marketing tool. With the world renowned Street View no longer being limited to streets alone, we want to do our best to help local businesses in New York leverage this amazing feature to influence the decision making process of their potential customers, increase online exposure and visibility, and further enhance their Google listing."

The new feature offered by Google is suited to just about any type of business, including spas, warehouses, dental offices, medical facilities, cafes, hotels, bars, restaurants, auto dealerships, design and furniture showrooms, office spaces, and retailers, you name it. The team of Google Trusted Photographers can be seen all over the world, harnessing the immense potential of this program that enables visitors to take a 360-degree virtual tour of local businesses using Google's Street View technology. Published and hosted on Google+ Local pages, Google Maps, and other Google properties. With easy-to-use html snippets or Maps APIs, businesses can also link to these images from their own business website, thereby attracting potential customers who visit their website. 

Expressing the effectiveness of the program for her business, Laura Anderson of Resource Furniture said, "We're not on the ground floor, so our Street View tour is a great way to give customers a sneak peak of our showroom."

An extension of Google Business View also includes Hotel Business Views. Based on the results of the Hotel Pilot conducted during July-December 2013, Google will be investing in heavily expanding Maps Business Views to Hotels.

Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
