Google+ – What does it mean for my Business?
There are many Social Media choices out there already – and Google has thrown their hat in the mix with the introduction of Google+. What will it mean for your business? Should you consider setting up Social Media pages for marketing purposes? Leveraging Social Media can be a powerful business tool.
Right now, Google+ does not offer a page for businesses & brands specifically, in fact they have asked business to refrain from creating profiles just yet and will most likely delete them.
Some key features of Google+: create work specific circles for internal communication; web conferencing; discussion groups; and expanding brand awareness. The circle feature will be a great way to communicate specific messages to targeted user groups. Businesses will want to give this some thought as Google+ expands it’s offerings in the next few months.
Vertical Response, an Mass Email Service Provider, put together a pretty decent run-down of Google+. Take a look and let us know when you want to integrate it with your website.
So for now, it looks like Google+ should really just be used for personal reasons, later on this year Google will finalize their plans for Businesses & Brands to use the new social media service.
