WHO WE ARE
We weave stunning visual content, innovative new marketing channels, and a new way to engage with your customers into a strategy that works for your goals.
Virtuo’s expertise in local search and with Google Street View has made it the agency of choice for local web optimization. We have created remarkable campaigns for many large brands with multiple locations, such as our clients Rogers, Fido, Henry’s, Joe Fresh, Énergie Cardio, Groupe Sutton, and many more.
Virtuo360 was founded in 2012 in Montreal, Canada, and from day one, it has focused on revolutionizing the digital space using state-of-the-art technology. We developed a name for ourselves as an internationally trusted brand by becoming one of the largest providers of Google Business Photos in 2012, which is now a part of Google Street View.
Virtuo360 Agency Inc. has grown from a melding of Jeffrey Han’s marketing and branding expertise and Tommy Fafard’s proven experience in photography, imagery, as well as web and application development. Virtuo360 Inc was founded by Tommy Fafard in Montreal for the Google Business View program and soon, he partnered with long-time friend Jeffrey Han in Toronto to expand the Google photos program across North America. Since then, they have both developed a hugely successful roster of cutting-edge services to suit any brand’s needs.
Virtuo has expanded to include an international team of experts in North America that excel not only in marketing, imagery, SEO, local search optimization and management, video marketing and in digital advertising, but also in creating completely unique technological experiences, like interactive 360° videos with live streaming capabilities and VR storytelling experience.
Our expertise in 360° videos has made us a leader in custom 360° virtual reality. We still remain one of North America's largest and most experienced Google Street View agencies, having shot over 5,000 businesses from coast to coast. We have offices in Montreal and Toronto and teams working in New York and Mexico with photo capabilities in all major North American cities for large scale multi-location deployment and we are still growing.

Tommy Fafard has been working in digital marketing for over 10 years. In 2012, he became the first Google Street View Trusted photographer in Quebec and he founded Virtuo360 the same year. Having received multiple awards from the Google Maps team at Google headquarters in California, Virtuo360 is a Google Street View program privileged partner. Indeed, under Mr. Fafard’s direction, the agency has collaborated on many important pilot projects that have later been used by Google Street View throughout North America. Fund of technologies, he manages research and development at Virtuo to help offer clients the latest trends.
Google Street View imagery, local management as well as local and traditional SEO are only a taste of services they have added to the Virtuo roster. With teams based in Toronto, Montreal, Cancun, and soon Bangkok as our new location in Asia, Virtuo helps clients showcase their businesses visually with award winning photography and provides cutting-edge marketing services to get brands noticed.
There are simply too many companies out there providing traditional SEO services that don’t work. We needed to innovate, and our recipe works because our clients are noticing. Local clients with a storefront need to show in local results, and we make sure this happens. Our proprietary reporting software allows clients to follow everything that is being done in a user-friendly platform.
