Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Virtual Tour, and how can it help my business?

A virtual tour is an interactive 360-degree representation of a location, typically captured using specialized panoramic photography and highly accurate 3D scans.

It allows potential customers to digitally explore your business, providing them with a better understanding of what you have to offer and, as a result, making them more inclined to visit or make a purchase.

What is the process of creating a Virtual Tour with your service?

The process of creating a virtual tour with our service is relatively straightforward and streamlined, thanks to the user-friendly nature of Matterport Pro 3 technology. Here’s a step-by-step explanation:

1. Consultation and Planning: First, we begin with a consultation to understand your specific needs and expectations. We schedule a suitable date and time for the photoshoot at your location.

2. Photoshoot: On the agreed-upon day, one of our professional photographers, equipped with a Matterport Pro 3 camera, visits your location. This high-quality camera is designed to quickly and accurately capture 360-degree 3D scans of each space.

3. Scanning: The photographer moves through the spaces, pausing the camera at various points to scan. The camera records both 2D and 3D data, including depth and color. This data is sent directly to the Matterport Cloud.

4. Processing: In the Matterport Cloud, the 2D and 3D data are merged to create an accurate digital representation of your space. This includes both a fully interactive 3D view and a schematic floorplan. This process typically takes a few hours to a day, depending on the size of the location.

5. Review and Publication: Once the virtual tour is processed, you’ll receive a link to view and approve the tour. Upon approval, we can integrate the tour into your website, share it on social media, and upload it to Google Street View.

Matterport Pro 3 technology allows us to create highly realistic and immersive virtual tours. It provides the ability to “walk” through each space as if you were there and includes features such as measurement tools, notes, and tags. This allows customers to explore your business in detail, even before making a physical visit.

How long does the process take?

The location shoot takes approximately 1 to 4 hours.
Virtual Tours can be fully customized, including the addition of tags that showcase your own content.
Post-processing, therefore, depends on your specific requirements.

We aim to share the complete result with you within two weeks.

Which businesses can benefit the most from Virtual Tours?

Any business with a physical location can benefit from a virtual tour. This is especially true for businesses in the hospitality, real estate, retail, and other sectors where the physical environment is a significant part of the customer experience.

How can a Virtual Tour contribute to my online visibility and SEO?

Virtual tours can increase your online visibility and SEO by extending the “time spent” on your website, which is a crucial ranking factor for search engines. Additionally, adding a virtual tour to your Google My Business listing can enhance your visibility in local search results.

Why is a Virtual Tour interesting for real estate?

For every property you promote on your site or other platforms, you present it in a more attractive and exploratory way through a virtual tour. Studies show that homes sell 20% faster and at a 9% higher price.

You also have a 24/7 marketing tool that customers can visit whenever they want, even when you can’t be there. It also helps expedite the decision-making process since customers have viewed a virtual tour, and it saves you time by only showing the property to genuinely interested clients.

What is a Google Virtual Tour?

A Google Virtual Tour is a series of 360° panoramas linked together to create a virtual tour. They are hosted on Google Maps and associated with your Google Business Profile. When someone finds your business on Google, they can take a tour of your business. As part of Google’s StreetView, your customers see enhanced search results, especially in the “Local Pack,” the map listings on the first page of Google search results.

Why should my business have a Google Virtual Tour?

It’s a Google program, and Google loves it. It will enhance your visibility on Google, especially in Google’s local search results. It also helps build trust by allowing people to experience your location before they arrive. These interactive, virtual experiences instill more confidence in potential customers and significantly increase the likelihood of them making an in-person visit.

When potential customers search for you on Google, ensure that their first encounter is a good one by showcasing what you have to offer when they visit you in person.

Can the Virtual Tour be placed on my website?

Absolutely! Integrating the virtual tour into your business website is straightforward and clear with the instructions we provide. It essentially involves adding just one line of code. Additionally, the tour offers the option to share it on various platforms, including social media, blogs, and emails.

Why should I put a Virtual Tour on my website?

Increasing the attractiveness of your website is essential, and a virtual tour can significantly contribute to this. This type of visual content contributes to powerful marketing strategies, as people process images 60,000 times faster than text. This results in visitors spending more time on your website, a crucial factor for your SEO score.

Users are often more drawn to visual elements than, for example, opening hours. The virtual tour immediately stands out and captures attention. It provides a digital replica of your business environment, allowing potential customers to easily imagine what it would be like to visit your business in person.

This visual appeal also enhances trust and credibility, two factors essential for converting website visitors into actual customers. A virtual tour offers a form of transparency that visitors appreciate, as it provides a realistic view of what they can expect. This reduces the barrier for website visitors to become real customers.

Can Virtual Tours also be created outside the major cities in the Netherlands?

Absolutely! We can provide a virtual tour for your business no matter where you are in the Netherlands. With our team of professional 360° photographers, we can create a high-quality, interactive virtual tour that presents your business in a vivid and engaging way, regardless of your location.

So whether you’re in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht, Maastricht, or anywhere in between, we’re ready to create your virtual tour.

What are the costs of a Virtual Tour?

The costs of a Virtual Tour can vary depending on several factors, including the number of objects or spaces you want to scan, the total square meters to be scanned, the number of floors, and any additional features you’d like to include in the tour, such as custom tags, videos, photos, or links.

Typically, Virtual Tours start at €295 for scanning a single property, and Google Virtual Tours start at €450. However, these are just starting prices, and the final cost can be tailored to your specific needs.

Digital marketing is a rapidly evolving field, and there are few proven tactics that provide as much value for your money as a Virtual Tour. While it can be challenging to track and prove the ROI of marketing efforts, you’ll reap the benefits of this tactic in terms of lead generation, increased trust, more website traffic, and online visibility.
