Indiana Small Business Community Leverages Power of Virtual Tours

03.18.21 05:44 PM By Joseph Danzer
Indiana is getting serious about revitalizing its local businesses. The 11 tours featured below were funded by the Indiana Small Business Development Center’s Covid-19 Recovery Relief Efforts in an effort to bring awareness to small businesses in the region. Advanced Online Insights was proud to work with eXtend Marketing Partners to complete the virtual tours.

In January, our team visited 11 small businesses in Terre Haute to capture the photography needed to create high-quality virtual tours. In a blitz tour of the region, we were able to get to know the business owners and see their passion for growing their local community.



We love supporting small businesses, and this was a unique opportunity for Advanced Online Insights. The collaborative effort to create tours for several small businesses in an effort to advance the region is, in our opinion, a brilliant investment for the tourism industry in Terre Haute.

In the end, we have 11 new businesses to showcase that will weave you in and out of a tour across Terre Haute. Get to know Terre Haute by exploring the tours below, and let us know if your local business community could benefit from a similar experience!
