Over the past few weeks I have been having a lot of fun going to toy stores, Snapdoodle toy stores to be more specific. I dropped into the Snapdoodle toy store in Issaquah Highlands the week it opened to see if they’d like a 360° Google virtual tour and much to my delight, after checking with the owner, they said yes. Shortly thereafter, I did the photo shoot, processed and created the virtual tour with 20 images and uploaded it to their Google My Business listing. He liked the tour so much, he decided to do his other 3 stores […]
We do virtual tours for smaller businesses, too. Here is one of a Self Defense Studio in Redmond Washington we did 6 viewpoints just a little over a month ago. Already with 962 views. The cost was only $299. You can’t find a better digital marketing opportunity than that. Not only that, but they now have the #2 position in the search results for self defense in Redmond Wa.

Of course, we planned it during a time period in which there were not many members around and I had the club manager on hand to run interference for me. Unfortunately, it was a rainy day, so I will be going back to add the exterior images to the tour. If you have been following the […]
I had a great New Year’s Eve with a large photoshoot at the Coal Creek Family YMCA in Newcastle, WA. The facility is over 49,000 square feet on two floors which opened in 2009. One of the challenges of doing the photoshoot was finding a time that no one would be around. If there are people in the shot, we either need to get written permission from them or blur their faces. It is much easier to find a time when no one is around and New Year’s Eve was perfect. The Club closed at 1 PM and I was […]
