Pathway Pediatrics - Birmingham AL Commercial Photography by Tommy Daspit

Tommy Daspit is a commercial, architectural, real estate, and Google Trusted Photographer in Birmingham, AL

I recently created a Google 360º virtual tour for a newly opened pediatric clinic in Chelsea. They were working with Vehicle Media, a local web design company that I’ve partnered with on several projects in the past, to develop their website. They recommended that I create the Google tour and photos for the site design. I have always enjoyed working with Paul and Greg at Vehicle Media. They do great work and it’s nice to know that they trust me with their clients. I make it a point to only refer my clients to businesses that I know will take good care of them. After all it’s my reputation on the line as well!

I met with Megan, the practice manager and lactation nurse, before construction on the office was complete. Even in it’s unfinished state I knew it would be a great looking place and I was looking forward to photographing it!

In addition to the 360º tour and conventional commercial photos, I also created an interactive version of the tour with HotSpots. This is a new thing I’m offering on the Google tours (see this page to learn more). For the version of the tour embedded on the client’s website and Facebook pages, I can make it interactive. It can be customized with a navigation menu, automatic information when specific areas are viewed, and icons placed throughout that viewers can click on for more information. For example I can embed photo galleries, videos, links to websites or files, more details, etc. It helps a business engage more with the client, keeps them there longer, and helps them feel more connected to the business. It really takes the Google tour to a whole new level!

I’ve embedded the interactive tour below so give it a spin! Let me know what you think in the comments below or send me a message if you'd like to learn more about how this can benefit your company!

Introducing Hotspots for Google Virtual Tours by Tommy Daspit

After much tweaking, testing, and perfecting, I’m excited to announce the new HotSpot option for Google virtual tours!

A Google Maps Business View 360º virtual tour is one of the best ways to improve your businesses visibility on Google, connect with potential customers in a unique way, and stand out from your competition. There aren’t many marketing platforms that can provide the return on investment that the Google tour provides. 

The HotSpot feature takes that value to a whole new level. It allows businesses to make Google tours embedded on their website and Facebook pages into guided, interactive tours. Potential customers will be able to “jump” from one part of the tour to the next with a navigation menu. Strategically placed markers will allow them to see YouTube videos, photo galleries, restaurant menus, product information, links, reserve specific tables, purchase specific items, get additional information, call, and directly contact the business right through the tour! 

Each HotSpot is customizable and tailored to each individual business. They can decide what to say, what kind of interaction, and where to place it! I work with each business to create an experience their customers can find nowhere else. With a low monthly rate and no contract, it’s an incredible value as well!

Check out the example I created for Cocina Superior Restaurant. Click the icons to see photo galleries, menus, reserve tables, inquire about catering, and more!
