Are you looking for a creative way to market your business? Due to COVID-19 restrictions in today’s climate, customers may feel unsafe visiting a new business or want to know what precautions are taken to keep them safe. Taking a 3D tour of a business can make a customer feel more familiar. During a 3D tour, the business owner can explain what efforts are being made to keep customers safe by using informational tags. Plus, a 3D virtual tour is a great way to showcase your business!
Scan Your Business with the Matterport App
Using the Matterport data collection app on either an iPhone or iPad creates your virtual 3D tour. You can pair the app to your iPhone to take photos or to a Matterport tripod scanning device or even a Leica BLK360 laser scanner.
Scanning is Easy!
Each scan is quick – only about 30 seconds. After each scan, just move to your new location and the current scan is merged with the previous!
Upload and Host on the Web
Connect your iPad or iPhone to a Wi-Fi connection and upload to the web. The data will be hosted there, and you can share your project.
Use the 3D Virtual Tour to Convey Specific Information
The purple circles below convey specific pieces of information depending on that location. The highlighted circle is a welcome sign, informing viewers they are in a safe location.
