For years people have been asking us for paid accounts with extra features.
For months we’ve been thinking about it.
And for weeks working on it.
The 360 Cities PRO account has everything that the free account has, plus some extra adorable add-ons. 360 Cities PRO accounts are designed for professional panorama photographers who want to use 360 Cities for business purposes. The key benefit is that they allow you to publish panoramas that clearly promote a business. This is very useful for promoting hotels, restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, etc. If you name the images properly then thanks to our search engine optimization don’t be surprised if the panoramas end up ranking better than your company website.
The second great feature of PRO accounts is that you can publish awesome HD virtual tours on the 360 Cities hosting layer. A virtual tour on 360 Cities is a group of panos (panoramic images) that represents a virtual walk-through of a place. You can build a tour by simply uploading panoramas and grouping them together, but if you want, you can also add a nice-looking floor plan, map and clickable arrows that point to nearby locations to make the virtual walk-through complete. You can then send a public link to the tour to anyone or to embed your panoramas and virtual tours to websites. If you already are a professional VR photographer experienced in creating virtual tours for businesses in your area, 360 Cities can become an effective value-added service to help you increase your business and save you time.
Our publishing system completely automates the process of putting panoramas and virtual tours online. All you have to do is upload stitched panoramas. Our system does everything else like creating many different image versions and sizes and locating it properly on the map based on a range of data you input using our content management system, a forms-based user interface that gives you the ability to add descriptive text and control a number of settings. For virtual tours we you don’t need to worry with XML and hosting issues, we handle everything for you, even if you embed your tour. This is all a big time and money savings for you.
The third benefit of a PRO account is that you can put your company name in your account name. Your account name is the name that appears visually on the site as your photographer’s credit so it’s a good way to promote your company via 360 Cities.
