Google+ for Brands:Updates & Tactics…
Google+ for Brands has come up often in the past few weeks as the new year opens up and we thought that it just might help some of our SMB readers who have a brand to learn about the latest updates and tactical reviews out there.
First a couple of things to remember about both Google+ and your brand itself. Google+ has (at least google reported today) almost 700+ million users.
Users who use products….and you hve a brand, right?
Do you also then have a Google+ Brand page setup yet? If not, go here and get that all setup…and live!
So, now that your Brand account page is setup in Google+, you should also of course hookup your own website with same and that can be done using a series of items…
Got them all setup and live? Great! But if you’ve a YouTube channel, you’ll need to consider linking same to your new Google+ Brand account and more info on that can be found here….and for more help on same try here too.
And no, that of course is not all, and you should also think about really moving your Brand into the stratosphere when it comes to your own online marketing plans…and the setup of your Google+ Brand account is truly only the vehicle to use….there’s so many other Google products to learn how to use to help you get Google’s acknowledgement that your Brand is an Authoritative/Trust one to gain SEO rankings, more traffic and conversions….and here’s a short list on same to help you resarch these tactics too!
- Communities: Sort of a message board in which various parties contribute to a conversation on one specific topic.
- Hangouts: Hangouts enable conversations via text and video and allows users to schedule “Hangouts on Air” and have video conversations over the Internet with up to nine people. The live video can be promoted on a dedicated page and will become a sharable YouTube video!
- Helpouts: Allows users to get and give help over live video and Brand owners can use Helpouts to help others who question on topics like fixing a garage or removing a computer virus or how to fix cat scratches on a leather couch!
That’s more than enough to get started…and while the links above can get you started….you need to remember that you should go “past” the first click/thru and see what others have to say on the same topic…and how you can use their aid to further your online marketing strategies!Google
