Increase the value of your Business View Virtual Tour and drive customers & clients to your place of business.
Use the tips below.
Add a facebook tab:
This is relatively easy, but it involves having a number of windows open on your browser:
>Your business facebook page
>Your Woobox App downloader located here
>Your Google Business View Tour positioned where you want the tour to start (from Google+ or Google Maps). I used the old version of maps to find the links more easily.
When you're ready, here's the steps:
1. Log into your Facebook account then go to the Woobox App and install it (or use the link above)
2. Go to your Facebook page and click on the new Woobox tab titled ‘Welcome’. Authorize the Tab application when prompted.
3. In a new browser window go to www.maps.google.com and type in the business name and click the search icon.
4. Click on the Business name on the left side.
5. When the box on the maps opens click on more info.
6. Click on the see inside image and adjust the view to where you would like it to start.
7. Click on the link icon.
8. Copy the code from the URL info at the top bar on the screen,
9. Paste that code into your Woobox custom Facebook tab. Be sure to enable the ‘wide mode’ to show a big window. Change the name of the tab to whatever you want. Save settings.
10. Check your home page to check the new tab.
Embed a spinning tour on your website with the tools located on this page. (The person who created this tool is asking for $15/year USD for hosting.)
We have also found a shareware WordPress plugin for a rotating tour. It looks good too. Creator of this tool asks for a donation.
Embed your Google Business Photos tour in your website.
(The following instructions work on most browsers):
1. Go to http://www.maps.google.com, type your business name in the search field.
2. Locate your see inside view (usually lower left).
3. Click on the see inside image and adjust it to the view you would like customers to see.
4. Click on the link icon (the 3 dot array).
5. You can choose to share the view (to share a link).
6. Or you can choose to embed the view. Position your view where you would like it to open and copy the code generated here.
7. Paste this code into an iframe on your website. You can adjust the size by changing the width and height in the code.

How should you handle a bad review?
Answer it. Try to keep in mind that this reviewer probably felt slighted. Ask him for some details and if you could make it up to him. Most likely, he will come around. If he doesn't, then at least others reading your reviews will see that you care enough to comment.
