Everyone likes expanding his business because expanding a business directly means more revenue and revenue is exciting for every person no matter to what region of the world he belongs. What makes you earn more with your business? A large number of people showing interest in your brand, am I right? You all may have heard about Google+, it’s a social network which was introduced by the King of search engines that’s Google. Google Plus is just like Facebook but has the capability to boost the results which your business has achieved till now.
Why Google+ For Business?
I would have chosen Facebook, Twitter or any other social networking site instead of Google+ but there is a reason behind choosing it because Google+ itself have more than 560 million users which is pretty good audience to bring exposure to your brand and beside this you have the advantage to improve the visibility of your business using Google (Search Engine), you can get your business visible to billions of people by the use of Google (Search Engine) and you don’t have to make efforts to improve your visibility, you just have to be active on Google+ and it will do the rest. Google normally gives more importance to things which are shared/posted on Google+ and if you utilize Google+ perfectly than I’m sure you’ll be one of the successful businessmen in future.
Hashtags – The Topic Advantage:
Google+ provides you the opportunity to reach much more people even farther than you think. You may plan to get your business spread among you circles and followers but that’s not enough because hashtags are here to facilitate you. You can target thousands even millions of people by adding a single hashtag to your update depending on the popularity of the topic you are sharing on your profile or page.
Hangouts to Spread Brand Awareness:
Ever heard of Google hangouts? It’s like webinars or offline meet-ups which can help you to spread words about your brand. You don’t have to arrange meet-ups or webinars specifically to tell people about your product. Although, you can use hangouts which can help you as webinars or meet-ups to make people know that your product is the only thing which can help them depending on what kind of services you are providing. Sometimes, it becomes difficult for people to understand the objective of a product and this results in less brand awareness and of course less product sales but with Google Hangouts you can do everything within minutes and the best thing is that you hangout will be available to a mob of people and Google+ is one of the best platforms which can make all this stuff possible.
The use of internet has been increased massively in recent years and everybody who uses internet is familiar with Google, Believe me! today people search for business offices and products more often online than they do it offline. I was recently searching for some party decorators to plan a party for my brother and instead of doing a search offline or asking for refers I preferred to do it online and I found some good decorators. Now you can understand how getting your business on Google+ and then getting it onto Google Local can help you to expand your business.
Circles to know new people:
The best feature is you can have as many circles as you want and it’s similar to other social networking sites like Facebook and Linkedin but you can know people more accurately on Google+ with its great interface and of course because of the availability of more like-minded people on this platform.
How to get into it?
A well setup profile:
You need to setup a profile as a business representative, you are not supposed to trick people, you are supposed to help them in a kind manner. It all depends on your personality. The more awesomeness people will see in your personality the more they’ll indulge.
A business page:
You need a verified business page to make people believe you. You have to show people how you can help them using your profile and business page. You can also use your business page to get into Google Local, it will help people to find your business locally.
Authorship and Updates:
Authorship is a great feature, if you have a business website then you must connect it with your Google+ profile by utilizing authorship. Beside authorship everything depends on how you tell people about your business, how you update them using your profile and business page.
This was all about how Google+ can benefit you and how you can utilize it for your success. Remember one thing, you need to start things, once you start them then they’ll soon become easier and they would surely benefit you, no matter how hard they look at start.
