Google weekly viewing figures:

How do new or old customers find you? 

Customers new to an area will use Google search or Google maps to find what they are looking for, by typing “Hotels near me” or “Pubs in Shrewsbury”, known as organic search – or they type “The Crown in Shrewsbury” which is a direct search.

A direct search you will always be number one, a major factor of an organic search will depend on how well your Google business listing is set up and maintained. 

Our Digital consultants will work with each venue to make sure that the Google business listing is optimised and set up correctly to maximise your position within organic search.

Within 3 months we have taken the Crown at Coleham onto page 1 of Google organic search.

 

Google Analytics

Although these products are amazing, knowing that you are getting an ROI is vital to any business. With this in mind we will provide each venue with a live link that updates weekly to keep you informed of how many views that tour has been receiving – and which images are the most popular. 

The Crown’s Google Analytics:

We will educate site management on how to use the Google My Business App – so they can see insights as to how their business listing is performing and improving, respond to reviews, upload new photos, create events and posts.

What is an Overlay?

An Overlay is simply your Google Virtual Tour adapted to become interactive, we overlay text/graphics/video/offers from your design department onto the tour, enabling potential customers to find out more about your venue, see special offers and events or even book function rooms and bedrooms direct from the tour.

Benefits

  • We can use the data from Google analytics to identify the most popular images within your tour, this enables us to identify the best areas to place hotspots for video/offers etc.
  • An overlay can be pinned to the top of your Facebook page (Google tours can’t)
  • No need to pay booking fees when we link to Enviiro
  • Create a link for Instagram
  • People can scan the code and see straight inside your venue and interact.
  • The overlay can be branded and have a menu, customers can quickly navigate through larger venues and decide what they want to see-quickly
  • We can attach the overlay to your website
  • Have a QR code created for any company literature/business cards/gift cards etc.

Hold your smartphone camera over the QR code below for a demonstration.
