Sharing Instructions

For Email, Facebook, and other Social Media Sites, sharing your tour is as simple as copying and pasting a URL: 

  1. Position the tour in the room / section in which you want your visitor to start
  2. Click on the link symbol button next to the tour screen, usually located on the top left hand corner next to the printer symbol.
  3. Check the “shorten URL” box.
  4. Copy the shortened URL, or click “Send” for email options.
  5. Paste the URL as a “status update” on Facebook, in an email, or wherever you would like to share it.  Make sure to tell people what the link is!

To embed to tour directly into a Blog or on a website:

  1. Position the tour in the room / section in which you want your visitor to start
  2. Click on the link button next to the tour screen, usually located on the top left hand corner next to the printer symbol.
  3. Click “Customize and Preview Embedded Map”
  4. Choose the size you want the tour to be on screen or enter a custom size.
  5. Copy the HTML code at the bottom of the screen and Paste it into your HTML editor for a website or Blog Post.

Note: If you have a Facebook page for your business, you can also permanently embed the tour there by installing Woobox Static Iframe tab and pasting the HTML code.  Further instructions for this can be found at http://goo.gl/EcsOO8

You can also lead people to your business Virtual Tour by the creative use of Quick Response Codes, which are those square barcodes that people can scan with their mobile device.  By printing these codes on promo cards, flyers, and anywhere else you can think to put them, you invite your customer to look inside your business:

  1. Type goo.gl into your web browser, no .com or anything.  This takes you to Google’s  site for easily shortening URL codes.
  2. In another tab, open your tour on Google maps and copy the long URL from the browser
  3. Paste the URL from the tour into goo.gl, and click “shorten URL.”
  4. Copy the new shorter URL for easy sharing on email, and by clicking “Details” you can see the analytics for the link as well as get a free QR Code.
  5. Right Click on the QR code to download and share.  Return to goo.gl anytime to see how many people have clicked or scanned your link.
