Grow your Library with Google: 360 Virtual Tours

Recorded on Monday, August 7, 2023

During this exciting session, we’ll review what it takes to optimize your library’s online presence through Google, the #1 search engine worldwide. 

Libraries can greatly benefit from Midwest Pano's expertise in creating 360° virtual tours to showcase their space. As a Google-Certified agency, Midwest Pano has the knowledge and skills to help libraries effectively promote their facilities to potential visitors. With a virtual tour, people can get a comprehensive view of the library and all it has to offer, making it easier for them to decide to visit in person.

As we all know, libraries are essential community resources, and having a solid online presence is crucial for reaching and engaging with patrons. A Google Business Profile is an excellent tool for helping people find your library online and providing accurate, up-to-date information and resources.

During this presentation, Holly Adkins and Nile Clements will speak to the importance of:

  • Having up-to-date information

  • Including relevant keywords and incorporating Google Posts

  • Having reviews and feedback

  • Updating your photos and adding a Google virtual tour

This virtual tour platform is uniquely designed to help you achieve your library’s strategic goals.
