Google Plus Benefits for Business, the Undeniable Truth

Google Plus Benefits for Business

What is it and what are the Google Plus benefits for business?

According to Wikipedia’s web definition, Google+ is a social networking and identity service owned and operated by Google Inc. It is the second-largest social networking site in the world, having surpassed Twitter in January 2013.

Since adopting Google+ into my family of social spaces, I’ve come to see it as more than just another social network, but a powerful tool for communication.

With more than 500 million registered users, there is simply no denying the impact, and how powerful Google plus benefits small businesses and internet marketers.

Do You Have Social Media Style?

Do you sometime have a hard time trying to figure out how you should BE online? It’s different when you leave your house…you know what you’re going to wear, how you’re going to fix your hair and do your makeup.

Depending on how you feel, the weather outside, you can get in your vibe and just…do you! When it comes to creating your social media presence online…your persona, it can be a bit difficult.

We get caught up in the idea we have to BE super professional and appear extra educated in order to attract business. Then, we find these awesome people online with thousands and thousand of fans and followers and we think…“if I could just be like…so-and-so, my business will grow” or “if I just talk like such-and-such, I can attract more people”…ever feel like that?

Social Media Strategy: Keep It Simple Silly

No more crying, no more complaining, no more feeling sorry for yourself because you don’t know how to “do” social media. Stop believing that the reason it’s not working is because of the type of business you have or the industry your in.

The fact of the matter is, EVERY business online today, should be using social media to build their network and grow their social influence. When you realize it’s all about interacting with people to connect and network, things will begin to change for you.

The problem is NOT the kind of business you have,
but that you do NOT have a strategy.
