1. My business is already have website and Facebook page. Why do I need to add my business to Google Maps?
- Around 90% of internet users in Sweden are using Google to search for products and services. These are thousands of people per day. Once your business gets on Google you would make it easy for potential customers to find you. Even if you have a website you still need to tell Google about it via SEO or AdWords. This would cost you time and money. Why spending resources to promote your site to Google if you can add your business directly to Google? Moreover, do you know how many visitors per month does your website have? How long visitor have stayed on your website? What is conversion rate? So, using free of charge Google tools you can easily see that statistic on your computer, tablet or smartphone.
Facebook is indeed very popular and could help you to build a relationship with your existing customers but it would not bring you much of new customers. How many people can see and like your posts and why is it so important for you to have many 'likes' on Facebook business page? Website and Facebook page is important for your online presence but Google is more efficient among other online platform cost you nothing!

Second part, is to add virtual tour to your business listing on Google. Your business would be beautifully presented across Google and would bring you twice more potential customer's visits then business without virtual tour.

Save money by not spending on advertising! 80% of people are skipping online ads as they prefer more organic search results which Google Maps can offer them. You can consider virtual tour as an investment into your business. Compared to other form of reklam (like local newspaper) you would see result on the next week, e.g. how many times your business have been viewed, how many clicks and how many calls. How do you know how many people would see your advertisement in newspaper or magazine and how many of them would became your customers?
