Santa Rosa, California - Google has awarded Zenergy Works the first award of its kind for their creative use of Google Maps Business View to create inspired virtual tours for clients. The Google Trusted Agency has been singled out among hundreds of agencies and photographers worldwide for their unique use of Google Maps Business View.
Like Google Street View, Business View offers people a 360-degree panoramic tour, allowing the viewer to get a better, more accurate view of places before they decide where to go. The Zenergy Works team will attend an awards celebration at Googleplex in Mountain View, CA. - view the award-winning tour here.
Lawrence Amaturo, Splash Express owner was overjoyed that his was the award-winning tour. “The Zenergy team spent extra time storyboarding and shooting and I was thrilled with the outcome. Now I can say we have not only the tallest car wash in America, but the most creative on-line experience available to learn about it!”
Consumers now go online before they buy or even visit a business and “virtual tours have revolutionized that experience,” says Bryan Fikes, co-founder and Chief Strategist of Zenergy Works. “This is a completely integrated marketing solution and clients report an array of positive results since integrating the tour including; increased hits and more time spent on the site and pages, stronger brand recognition, interest and trust for their operation. They say it feels like you’ve walked right through their doors and are in the room and it inspires customers to visit in person.”
“Our virtual tour has proved a great addition to our website. Customer time spent on the Google tours page has increased 200%. People are taking the time to look around our store bringing them closer to actually walking through our doors. It’s very cool.” Tony Corsberg, VP Marketing Friedman’s Home Improvement
Winning this award instigated new opportunities for Zenergy Works with Google with access to their technology in a coveted relationship for any Marketing agency. The technology pioneered in a limited European beta test, will be integrated in the upcoming launch of Zenergy Works’ program branded as “Sales Eagle.” It is a cutting-edge business lead generation program engineered to wrap the best elements of virtual touring into an enhanced lead generation and capture tool.
