Google+ and Why it’s a Must!

Janice Clark and Google+ on Word of Mom Radio

If you spend any time at all on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, you probably already know about Google+.  For those of you who don’t know, it’s Google’s attempt to add a new social addition to its many offerings.  And what an attempt!!

It’s still in beta and is already projected to have over 25 million users!! I’ve been using it since early July and have been very pleased with what I’ve seen! If you haven’t seen much about it yet or still aren’t convinced you want to try a new social site then here are just a few of the things I love most about Google+. I think you’ll love them too!

Benefits of being on Google+

  • · Having more connections on Google+ will offer you the opportunity to rank higher in search – Your public posts are added to social search – that means when you make a public post on Google+ and any of your connections do a search for keywords within that post, your post will show up higher in the search rankings than one from someone they aren’t connected to
  • · It’s still very new and people are still eager to connect and reading the posts in their feeds. This offers a tremendous opportunity for wonderful new introductions and potential partnerships, referrals and connections!
  • · The easy to manage Google Circles can actually give you the opportunity to share specific content with targeted groups. So many of you are offering multiple product lines! This is a wonderful way to share specific items with select interested groups
  • · Take advantage of Hangouts for free video conferencing
  • · Not limited by characters per posts so you have the opportunity to give and receive much more information and have higher quality interactions with potential new clients, referrals and strategic alliances
  • · Add bold and italics to your posts for emphasis!
  • · So far there is very, very little spam! 99% of the interactions I’ve seen are quality interactions with real sharing and conversations!
