Businesses are Using Amateur Photographers to Help Find Suitable Locations for New Restaurants, Retail Stores, and Other Facilities -

Selecting the optimal location for a new retail store or restaurant is so crucial that it can make the difference between success and failure. As the ownership of these types of businesses has shifted from private entities to large corporations, the art of selecting sites has evolved from an entrepreneur’s hunch to a process that is approaching a science.

Companies gather hordes of information on demographics, automobile traffic patterns, and an array of other data before deciding on a location for a new restaurant or retail store. Much of the desired information can be obtained from existing databases of statistics collected by the U.S. Census Bureau and independent research firms. However, even the most sophisticated number crunching has not eliminated the need to visit potential sites in order to assess the intangible factors that affect whether consumers will flock to a given location.

Corporations employ trained professionals and hire specialized consultants to visit and evaluate potential sites. Nevertheless, there are some situations when a less qualified individual can be of assistance. One situation is during the preliminary stages of site selection when several venues are under consideration. An amateur photographer can go take pictures of each location so that a site selection specialist can perform a preliminary assessment without having to personally visit each site. Another situation where an untrained person can help is when a particular location has already been thoroughly investigated and all that is needed is to verify that the condition of the site has not changed since the last visit.

In these situations, an untrained amateur photographer can go snap a few photos of the area and spare the site selection specialist from making the trip. There is a new service that enables companies to find amateur photographers who are able to capture photos of potential sites anywhere around the world. The service, called GoSee4Me (, has enlisted an extensive network of amateur photographers to capture digital photos of anything in their local vicinity upon request.

An image of any object, structure, or physical location can be obtained inexpensively from GoSee4Me because their amateur photographers bid against each other to provide the photos, which drives the price down to an affordable level. Companies can use the service as needed because GoSee4Me operates on a pay-per-use basis rather than by subscription.
