Clients come to me to create a fantastic virtual tour for them. Towards the end of the project, some clients ask this very fundamental and practical question: “How do we promote our virtual tour?“. There are lots of simple and existing ways to promote your virtual tour (online and offline). So let’s look at how to market your virtual tour for maximum exposure.

How To Promote & Market Your Virtual Tour

How To Market And Promote Your Virtual Tour

Embed / Link The Virtual Tour On Your Website

The easiest and most obvious way to promote your tour is to showcase your 360 virtual tour on your company/organisations website. Showcasing the virtual tour can be achieved in many ways. The two most common methods are to have it as a link in the menu or embed your virtual tour someplace on your site. Some companies will make a specific virtual tour page, while others will share it in their blog (on more than one occasion). If you have a Google Street View Tour you many people display it on their contact-us page.

Social

One of the best ways to market your virtual tour is to share it online. Does your business have social channels? You can share this on almost any platform, including Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google My Business and More! See below as an example.

You can even share the 360 photos on Facebook in their proper 360 form!

I can also hear you saying, “look, this is great, but what about Instagram?”. Well, we have you covered with Little Planets! A little planet is a 360 photo that is reshaped to look like a tiny planet such as below. They are fun and great on all social channels! Check one out below.

Email Campaigns (EDM)

You have a new and exciting virtual tour and most likely have a growing email database of loyal followers. You can share the virtual tour in an up and coming email blast. Plus, if you have an open day, you can reuse it as content every year.

Expos

At the time of writing this blog, there are many ongoing restrictions at the moment. You may not be able to use it now, but when restrictions clear. Expos are great at showcasing your virtual tour and helped bring your business into the expo. Having presented at many expos, the one thing you find is that it’s tough to promote a physical space such as a hotel or school and truly showcase your facility. With a virtual tour, you can have touch screen tablets, Macs, PCs or even a VR headset and bring your business into the expo. The phrase we like to say at Simply 360 is, “With a virtual tour, you can bring your space wherever you go“.

Email Signature

One of the most effective yet least utilised marketing tools is an email signature. Everyone sends emails, and you will often have people list their name, company, contact details, social channels and perhaps even a company slogan in an email signature. Adding a link to your virtual tour gives everyone the opportunity you are in contact with you see and experience your location firsthand.Β  Additionally, this method is the easiest to set up and costs nothing to maintain.

Print Media

I bet you are thinking two things. Firstly “Who uses print media these days” and second, “how can I put my virtual tour into a magazine or pamphlet?“. It’s simple and achieved in a couple of ways. Firstly you can simply say you have a virtual tour linked back to your site in the print space. The most effective way is to have a QR code that links to the tour. Android and iPhones now have built-in QR scanners in their default camera app. It’s easier than ever to have someone simply see the QR code in a magazine, newspaper, pamphlet or pop-up banner and visit the virtual tour.

    Such a well-written, informative article! I especially enjoy the mention of using QR codes in the Print Media section. QR codes are relevant. A Statista survey found that 18.8% of consumers in the US and UK strongly agreed that there was a visible increase in QR code usage since the onset of the coronavirus.

    First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Appreciate it!
