Have you ever had somebody come to your holiday destination, asking to have a look around before confirming their booking? You may even have been that person yourself somewhere before, so you’ll know how important it is to build up a good first impression by letting guests see what you have to offer. And thanks to modern video production technology, you can do this right on your website.

What is a virtual tour?

Much like the street view on Google Maps, which allows you to ‘drive’ down streets right on your screen, a virtual tour allows guests to ‘walk’ around your facilities and see what’s on offer. Best of all, this can be done from the comfort of their homes, offices or anywhere else on their smartphones.

How does this benefit your business?

In the hospitality and entertainment industries, time is money. And a virtual tour feature on your website saves you the time you would have spent showing guests around in person. They can look around in their own time without needing a guide.

Also, you will have access to a wider pool of potential guests. All those people who are not booking with you because they do not have the time or live too far away to come for a tour can now look around as well. That’s a whole new group of potential customers that can convert into real business.

How do you set up a virtual tour?

It’s as easy as using the services of a professional video recording company like Megaphone Media. They have the necessary video production experience and equipment to handle this project for you.

You can simply have them come to your venue with the necessary equipment, and they will take care of everything from there. This process will entail photographing the necessary areas with high quality 360° DSLR cameras, so that users can look around and get the full experience your venue has to offer before actually arriving.

Does the tour just use images?

While many virtual tours just use static imagery, some innovative video recording companies are also adding in multimedia. If you have a wedding chapel, you can include a video of a wedding service there, sound clips of birds chirping in the gardens, and various other features that displaythe things that make your venue special.

Give your holiday destination a modern edge!

The Internet is a massive resource, so now is the time to make it work for you! Contact a video production company today and show the world just how great your venue is, from every angle.
