10 bookshops you can visit right now on Google Street View
In La Central bookshop in Barcelona, you can find English books up the stairs. I haven’t been there. I haven’t contacted the bookshop manager. I’ve just seen it on Google Street View.
More and more bookshops on Google Street View advance to the next level - they offer indoor tours powered by Google Street technology. An example of La Central del MUHBA reveals how big the marketing potential of this tool can be.
And if we involve some imagination, or simply predict how would Google Street View evolve, we could think of using indoor tools as useful as this one.
If you are a bookshop owner, especially if it’s located in a popular tourist destination, check out whether you can offer Google Indoor Tours. The service is currently available in 18 countries, and not only in capitals, like a year ago. All you have to do is to sign up to partner program and schedule a shoot with a Google trusted crew.
If you’re planning a trip, you most probably use Google Maps to schedule the attractions. You can easily find out whether the indoor tour is offered by a museum, a café, or a bookshop. In the pop widget look for the preview called “See inside”.
Click on it, and you’ll visit the place right away, and get the feel of it. Just like these ten beautiful bookshops listed below, from London to Tokyo, Seattle to Hong Kong, or Singapore to Barcelona.
