And It Needs You.
You probably have heard that there’s another social networking site – Google+. And chances are, you have still not taken the plunge to participate. If are there- great! If not, you need to be.
Here’s three main reasons why:
- Search. Google = search, right? It’s the main way people find you and your business online. In a few short weeks of being on Google+ a search for my name resulted in a #1 listing that included my Google+ picture, profile information, and links to my business website. Cool. I see Google+ integrating into Google search results in a big way. Get involved and claim your name now.
- Business Pages. Right now, Google+ is testing business pages with a select few. Once they open it up to everyone soon those Google+ers who already have realtionships established with people in their circles (subscribers or friends) will have a built in audience. You’ll have people that know you, have had discussions with you, and like you. What better way to build your business?
- Engaging and meaningful. Yes I am still on Facebook (you can joing our Idea Pioneer Community there). And I plan to stay for now. But what immediately drew me into Google+ was the people I met and the rich discussions I was having about things I care about. I’m intersted in art, things going on in the world, technology, fun stuff, learning from others, not just business. Our world is expereincing huge change and, while pics of your vacation are nice, I like a little more. Google+ offers this. In spades. And that’s why it needs you.
