Google SketchUp is the latest in Google's arsenal of tools catered towards those who love to design and create. However, this tool is not just for artists; this tool can prove to be revolutionary for e-commerce websites & online shoppers.
ChooseHotTubsDirect.com, an e-commerce site selling hot tubs and spas is utilizing Google SketchUp to break down the traditional internet barrier and boost buyer confidence and sales. The tool allows customers to fully visualize products in 3D and to place them in prospective locations.
ChooseHotTubsDirect.com has created 3D images in Google SketchUp of hot tubs and swim spas to create a virtual ChooseHotTubsDirect.com Island Escape Spas showroom. This virtual showroom is in Google's 3D Warehouse, which serves as a repository of models created in SketchUp. In this virtual showroom, customers can select a hot tub of their choice and rotate it from all sides to view different angles and faces of the hot tub. 3D rotation allows customers to view the surface curves and positions of jets inside the hot tub, to choose colors and to inspect the products in 3D to get a real life feel. Additionally, using Google Earth, a customer can place a hot tub into his own backyard virtually. This enables customers to pre-design their backyards before making their buying decision, something even local dealers may not be able to offer.
Using Google SketchUp, shoppers can also build their own outdoor kitchens with Cal Flame & Fire Magic BBQ Grills on Sale. Being able to place a BBQ island and other outdoor kitchen accessories into their backyards even before purchasing the product really enables the customer to make an accurate buying decision.
This latest trend in e-commerce definitely redefines the shopping experience of an online consumer to a whole new level. Online shoppers have a tough time deciding what to buy simply by looking at pictures and 2D views. A virtual showroom positively assists in building personal confidence and trust in the products, an area which online-shopping often lacks. Steve Barbarich, CEO of ChooseDirect.com says, "Our virtual showroom enables us to enhance our customers' shopping experience with ChooseHotTubsDirect & ChooseOutdoorKitchens.com. It provides our customers the ability to fully customize and visualize their outdoor living spaces right from the comfort of their homes."
