Want to support your favorite local businesses? This month, let’s celebrate the places where you love to shop. To support the effort, we’ll be sharing useful tips, spotlighting fun stores, and featuring the some of your best photos.
This November, share where you shopPeople all around the world search for stores on Google Maps. When you add photos to places, you let others see what they’re like and what’s for sale.
Here’s how to give an in-store photo tour:
Take a wide shot when you first walk in to show the space
Post photos of shelves or racks with products on display
Be sure to add your photos on social, too, with #LocalGuides. Each week, we’ll feature some of our favorites here on Connect and on our social channels. You can even host or join a meet-up to explore stores in your area, adding photos and updating info along the way.
One other thing: We understand you can run into challenges when you’re taking photos in someone’s business. Before you shoot, take a moment to review our community policy if you’re not sure about taking images in businesses or have any other questions about interactions with business owners.
