Have You Ever Felt That If More People Could Just Experience Your Business, That You Would Easily Win Them Over As Customers ...
... Or Bummed Out That The True Awesomeness Of Your Business Isn’t Conveyed Properly Online?

Have you ever felt that if more people could just experience your business, that you would easily win them over as customers?
You know what I’m talking about, you’re the best choice in your industry, but when people look you up online, you look like EVERY other company with…
...Your generic looking listings on Google Maps
...Your stock photos on your website that everyone else is using
...You are not even showing up until page 34 on Google!
You see your competition doing better than you online, and it's frustrating as hell knowing that the work you do is THE BEST in town!
The world is going digital more and more every day and you know that even brick and mortar locations like yours need to start stepping up to remain relevant or to even just stay in business.
There are so many options out there, and it seems like every day there is a new silicon valley company calling you up promising to make everything better. You start to feel paralysis and frustration and end up doing nothing at all even though you know you should.
This turns in to Days… Months… and even years of inaction.
You’ve watched your competition succeed, but it hurts to even think about getting started yourself
What Happened To The Good Ole Days Where:
- customers first interactions with your business were personal
- your reputation was determined by word of mouth
And YOU KNEW the first time someone walked through your doors, you would have a Customer For Life!
Well, I'm here to tell you that those days are officially back!
I want to Introduce you to Fotofoto
A company that will let you stand out again
...Even in this crazy, crowded new digital world!
Fotofoto was started to help local businesses ...
...who have fallen behind in the digital marketing space
...are sick of lower quality competitors using digital marketing to get ahead
..make this very important and crucial first impression online.
We harness the power of Google Street View to engage new and existing customers in a way that is fun, exciting and interactive (just like you).
Everyone has a pretty decent camera in their pocket (Cell Phone), and there are more pictures being published online now more than ever! This is why it's so important for businesses to use high quality and unique images to stand out from all the noise. Google Street View 360° virtual tours are the perfect combination of Quality and Unique!
While it may sound technical and confusing, the photo shoot is actually very easy and can be completed with minimal impact to your regular business operations.
Our Google Street View Photographer arrives on site at a time that is most convenient for you. They will first walk through the business with you making notes of all the areas that are most important for you to showcase. They will also point out any areas that they feel will be hard to photograph, or may not display that well online (we want to put your best foot forward).
The photographer will then get to work, progressing through your business capturing a 360° image every few metres to provide a true sense of being there for your virtual tour visitors.
The entire photo shoot typically lasts from 45-75 minutes.
You don't need to do anything at this step! After the shoot is completed, the editing begins! We start by taking the hundreds (or even thousands) of individual raw images that we captured, and edit, blend and stitch them into complete spherical 360° images. We then take them over to Google Maps where we will align them appropriately on the map, make all of the connections, and then publish to Google Street View and to your Google Business Page.
The entire editing and publishing process takes 1-2 weeks.
Oh, the anticipation!! Once we are finished publishing your tour to Google Maps, and everything is functioning as it should we will send you an email with links to your tour so you can view it for yourself. At this time we will also deliver all of the marketing tools (everything included is listed further down the page) you need to get your business noticed!
All The Photography, All The Confusing Google Stuff, and All The Marketing Tools...
Done for YOU!
Once we have finished publishing your Google Street View tour, you will have everything you need to...
... Drive new customers from Google Maps
... Get free views of your business for years and years
... Keep customers on your website longer building trust with your brand
... Separate yourself from the competition!
With all of the included marketing tools you will be able to:
... create compelling Social Media Posts with high quality stand out content
... Brand all of your online assets using your own images, not cheesy stock photos
... confidently advertise services with ad content that encourages engagement
All with very minimal effort!
The Marketing value from every Street View Tour is more than a professional marketing agency could provide in months of work...
Or yourself months (if not years) to implement on your own.
With your Virtual tour, you now have your online efforts working as hard to bring business in as you do in person!

Check out these stories from Fotofoto Clients from different industries and see how they leverage Google Street View Virtual Tours in their business:
NAIT - Google Campus View
NAIT University was wanting a way to showcase their campus to potential and new students. To do this, we created NAIT Campus View, an extensive Google Street View virtual tour enabling potential students to see what the campus has to offer, and new students to get the "lay of the land" before their first day of school.
CIVEO - Workplace Accommodation Provider
The Civeo sales force needed a more effective way to show off their state-of-the-art lodges and villages to prospective clients at tradeshows and other offsite locations. Unfortunately, without seeing the workforce accommodations in person, it was hard to appreciate the size of the rooms, the available amenities or the layout of the buildings. We shot a Street View virtual tour of the outside and inside of their facilities that could then be viewed using a $15 branded Google Cardboard which turns smart phones into VR goggles. As a result of the 360 Virtual Tours, Civeo sales reps can now quickly provide an immersive virtual tour of their facilities from anywhere in the world to attract more leads and ultimately book workforce accommodation rentals.
Sawridge Inn - Hotel Virtual Tours
When it comes to looking for a hotel online, Google is often the first place people look. Sawridge Inn hired us to create virtual tours of all of their locations to help them stand out among all of the competition online. They also use the tours internally to assist people planning events or courses, to showcase the many different event spaces and meeting rooms.
Pampa's Brazillian Steakhouse - Unique Dining
Pampa's Brazillian Steakhouse was an entirely new dining concept in Western Canada. Pampa's was looking for a unique way to demonstrate their signature Brazillian style BBQ. They used a Street View virtual tour to show everything they have to offer as well as to show a behind the scenes look at their unique charcoal rotisserie.
Homes Alive Pets - Google Dog View
Homes Alive Pets is a family owned and rapidly growing pet store in Western Canada. Homes Alive hired us to help promote the Grand Opening of their new location in South Edmonton. In addition to the main tour, we wanted to do something unique. We put fotofoto's Street View Trusted Dog to work, and supplemented the High Definition tour, with a special "Dog View" perspective where you can follow along with the dog as he explores the massive options of dog food and treats available!
Edmonton Corn Maze - A worlds First!
Getting lost in a corn maze is fun! Getting the chance to do it on Google Street View is funner! This tour proved to us that businesses on Street view have the potential to go viral! This tour was shared about for weeks on end all over the globe, and even made the local news!
The result of this tour was serious awareness and free marketing for the Corn Maze, and the work earned fotofoto photographer Kyle Giesbrecht an award from Google for Most Creative Tour!
Still not Convinced? These are the Top Excuses That Keep Businesses From Having Success. Don’t fall for the Trap.

No Money to waste or Gamble? No Problem!
We have a free 30 day trial! For just a miniscule reservation fee of $16.97, we will come down to your business, demonstrate how we take our photos, capture a single FREE 360 photo, and upload it to Google Maps for you to monitor for 30 days. If after 30 days you’re not convinced that Street view is for you, then we take it down and no harm done! We will even give you a copy of the 360 photo for you to upload to facebook. If you are happy, then we also offer 12 month payment plan to help ease the burden.
“It’s Too Much Work To Even Try...”
Feeling like you don’t need another distraction taking you away from your business?
We feel the same way when something new comes along. Along with doing all of the work, we also deliver an entire blueprint to make it as simple and easy as possible. All you need to do is a little cleaning before the shoot! Let us do the rest.
“I Don’t Have The Skills… I Don’t Think I Can Do It”
There’s nothing technical about it! If you can share a photo on facebook, you already have all the skills needed to get full value out of your virtual tour.
“I Don’t Need This Right Now... The Timing Is Wrong”
Waiting for the "right time" to try this out?
Well, if your parents had waited for the "right time" to have kids, you wouldn't be here... The faster you get started, the faster you'll have success.

“I Need To Know Design Or Need To Hire An Expensive Designer To Add This to My Website...”
Worried that your virtual tour will just add more expenses getting this added to your website and will be a never ending cost?
Don’t worry. We have personally added Fotofoto Virtual tours to all kinds of websites. Wordpress, Wix, SBWEB, Squarespace and many others. As long as you have access to make edits to your site, we will add it for you! In the rare case where you have a designer that keeps access to themselves, all you need to do is introduce us to them, and we will handle all of the back and forth required to get this implemented.
“I Don’t Understand Programming… I Can’t’ Hire An Expensive One To Build What I Need...”
If you’re wanting something custom, chances are we have a way to make it work without having to hire anyone extra!
“I Don’t Have Enough Online Traffic To Make This Worth It…”
Worried that not enough people are Googling your types of business to make it worth it?
Chances are, that it’s not a traffic problem, but more of a conversion problem. This is where Street View Tours shine!
People are twice as likely to click on a business listing with a virtual tour over those without.
“I Don’t Have Money To Spend On Ads...”
That’s good because this isn’t an advertising product! While the Fotofoto tours do an absolutely excellent job of “advertising” your business, there is not expensive advertising cost.
Unlike Google Adwords, or Yelp Ads where you have to pay per click, or ridiculous amounts per month just to be shown, with fotofoto virtual tours you only pay us once for the photography and publishing service, and you continue to get free clicks for life (or for as long as Google supports street view imagery). There are no ongoing costs or fees.
“There’s Too Much Competition…”
Competition is a Good thing. It means people are looking for services like yours online, so there’s plenty of opportunity!
Chances are you have some competitors that provide a lower quality of service than you do. Don’t you deserve those clicks over them?
“I Have/Had Professional Photos before And It Didn’t Work...”
Photo’s alone aren’t going to solve any business problem. The beauty is in how you use them! The Fotofoto virtual tours are how you can show off your business, but it’s how you market them that can win you the business in the first place.
Our tours come with a full marketing kit to ensure you have everything you need to get the most benefit out of your virtual tour.
“I’ve Tried Web Marketing In The Past And It Didn’t Work...”
I think of all of those people who for whatever reason didn’t buy in to their companies lotto pool, and are the last people working at the company when everyone else quits when they win!
It’s true that not all marketing initiatives work as we hoped, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t stop trying or give up. The Street View tours may not end up being the golden nugget you hope for, but there are an almost infinite number of ways you can turn it around and make it work for you somewhere else. If it’s not working for you, we will always help you strategize the next steps where you can use your fotofoto Virtual Tour differently for some improved results.
“I’ve Made Progress In The Past, But Ran Out Of Money..."
Have you taken a marketing idea and started to turn it into a reality, but got stuck because you ran out of money?
Blown money on something that was supposed to work, but didn’t? Spent money on a dozen different things and it spread you too thin?
Fotofoto hopes to combat that by combining your Street View virtual tour, with all the important tools you need to succeed. Social Images, Post and Ad Examples, and website integrations. Not Only that, but we provide you with the training you need to get even more from it!
P.S. - Here Are A Few Other FAQs We Get A Lot
How long are your contracts?
There are NO long term contracts or commitments. You only pay once for the initial shoot, and your virtual tour lives on Google Maps for as long as Google has Maps (I don’t see them going away anytime soon)
If I have questions, is there someone I can talk to?
Yes! We are always available to provide first class support, and not just for your Virtual Tour, but with anything related to your business listing on Google.
Who owns my images?
As with most commercial photography agreements, the photographer typically retains copyright of all images they take. What makes us special is that even though we own the copyright, we grant the business a lifetime non-exclusive licence, so you can use the images wherever you like without worry. We do offer a Whitelabel service where you can pay extra to buy out the full copyright.
Do I have to install anything?
No! You are going to want to get this tour prominently displayed on your website, but we can handle all the technical details to get that added
Will this increase my Google Rankings?
Not even the majority of Geniuses working at Google are told what exactly contributes to improved rankings. While many have speculated that the tours have an impact, it would be irresponsible for us to make any claims. The tours have been proven to improve engagement, so we have focused our efforts on maximizing that.
Can I host the Tours myself?
Yes, if you’d like. We generally use Google for all of our hosting, but if you’d like more control, we can offer to build something special for you.
