If you are having problems with the information that Google has about your company, and cannot rectify it yourself, as a Google Local Guide we can help you. Please get in touch.

We can also greatly improve your presence on Google. We can create a 360°” tour for your businesses. This is exactly like the Google Street View, but inside your company, for potential new customers to see and ‘walk’ around your premises from the comfort of their own armchair! It also has the added bonus that it pushes you up the search results with Google’s SEO, because Google like to show off their new 360° photos!

If it’s something you may consider, please browse the rest of this site or give me a call on 07973 705477. Its not as expensive as you may think. A standard High Street business or a small pub would need about 5 – 10 “spins” at a cost of only £195. This would be a one off cost and it will be permanently hosted on Google’s Servers for your to share and embed it to your own web site.

The Google Local Guide scheme is run completely by volunteers like myself, helping to make the information about their community as fulfilling and as correct as possible.

You could become a Google Local Guide yourself, just follow THIS LINK and sign up – then start reviewing your local businesses, good or bad! It all adds up to help others find the best spots in town, make new friends, and you can unlock exclusive benefits along the way.
