Embed your Google virtual tour on Facebook

This guide will help you to embed your Google virtual tour on your facebook page. 

Start by navigating to this facebook app. Click on "Add Static HTML to a Page." Next click on the dropdown box and select the page on which you'd like to put your Google virtual tour and click "Add Page Tab." The button will take you to your page where you can customize the tab. Click on "Set up tab."

Now you will need to navigate to your Google virtual tour. You will need to access the tour from Google Maps, not by clicking the 'See Inside' photo from a Google search. Before you go on with any of these steps, you have to toggle the virtual tour to specific view you want. Each different angled view or zoom level has a unique embed code, so you embed different starting points of your tour on different parts of your website. For instance, the pictured tour is a furniture store. If the website for that business had separate pages for bedroom, living room, kitchen, they could embed separate virtual tours that start in those locations. 

Once you have the virtual tour pointed where you want it, click the three small vertical dots next to the name of the business. (see below)

A small menu will appear. Click on 'Share or embed image.' (see below)

A new window will appear. Click on the 'Embed Image' tab. Now you will have the option to select the size of your embedded virtual tour. I recommend setting a custom size of 800x500 (width x height.) Once you selected your size option, highlight and copy the entire code in the box. (see below)

Now you have your embed code copied. Go back to the window that popped up when you clicked on the set up tab button. Paste your embed code in the box that contains text (erase the text). Next click on the Actions dropdown and select "Edit name and image." You will have to login with facebook. Pick a name that will entice people to click on the tab and view your tour. When you're all finished, click on "Save & Publish" and close the window. 

From your facebook control panel, you can move the new tab you just created to a prominent view. Your tour is now public and ready for anyone to view. Congrats!

Google Business Photos draw potential customers in...

Earlier this month we created a fantastic Google Street View for business for our wonderful clients in Lewiston, Maine. Drew's Dental is a great dental office that has a fun easy going staff that will make you feel right at home. 

Our clients are wonderful and we are so happy to see the success they are gaining from the photography we created for them. Such great news! Congratulations Drew's Dental. 

If you are a local business owner and are wondering whether or not you should invest time and effort on your Google presence, these statistics may just convince you to do so. In just 20 days over 500 people looked at this image when searching for a dental office in Maine. Isn't that pretty incredible. 

Wouldn't all business like 500 new views?

More views on Google. . .


Businesses sometimes mention that their budget is a bit tight at the moment or that they have chosen to spend their marketing budget in a different venue. But there isn't any other tool like the Google Street View Trusted images we create for our clients. Take for example our clients, Remick & Gendrom Funeral Home/Crematory in New Hampshire. We created their "See Inside" Google virtual tour and Point of Interest Still Images back in February and they already have well over 10,000 views. Imagine the response your business could have?

Good Friday....were you there?

Jesus Christ crucified



Were You There
(When They Crucified My Lord)
Johnny Cash
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Oh were you there when they crucified my Lord?
(Ohh, sometimes it causes me to tremble)
Tremble
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

Were you there when they nailed Him to the cross?
Were you there when they nailed Him to the cross?
(Ohh, sometimes it causes me to tremble)
Tremble
Were you there when they nailed Him to the cross?

Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?
(Ohh, sometimes it causes me to tremble)
Tremble
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?

Well, were you there when the stone was rolled away?
Were you there when the stone was rolled away?
(Ohh, sometimes it causes me to tremble)
Tremble
Were you there when the stone was rolled away?

Jesus behind the window 

Prayer to Consider:
O Jesus, Who by reason of Thy burning love for us
hast willed to be crucified
and to shed Thy Most Precious Blood
for the redemption and salvation of our souls,
look down upon us here gathered together
in remembrance of Thy most sorrowful Passion and Death,
fully trusting in Thy mercy;
cleanse us from sin by Thy grace,
sanctify our toil,
give unto us and unto all those who are dear to us our
daily bread,
sweeten our sufferings,
bless our families,
and to the nations so sorely afflicted,
grant Thy peace,
which is the only true peace,
so that by obeying Thy commandments
we may come at last to the glory of heaven.

Amen.

Rusty rain gutter


Dear Child, 

     You think you understand my love. But I wonder: Do you know just how much I love to be with you? Do you know just how much I love to be with you? Do you know how much I miss you when you're gone? You can turn your back on me and walk away; I'll wait for you. You can move to a foreign country; I'll watch the road for your return. You can ignore my wishes and wander from my ways. You can make the wrong choices and listen to the wrong voices and waste every treasure I've placed in your hands. Still my ear will listen for your knock on the door. 

     Is it you? I will wonder, and my heart will leap. Is it my child at last? And on that day when I see you from a long way off, weary and broken and headed for home, I will rush out to meet you. I'll cover your shame with a cloak of righteousness. I'll cook a meal and call my friends and plan a celebration. And as I look into your face, which is so dear to me, Tears will fill my eyes and I will say, "My child was lost, but now is found! My child was dead, but now is alive again!"

With open arms! 
God
Luke 15:20-24
