If you are one of these people who think Google+ is just a knock off or a waste of time or even a second rate social network you are wrong. Dead wrong.
According to The New York Times, 540 million people per month are active on Google+. That number is staggering considering when Google+ started.
Remember this, some of your prospective customers are on Google+ and the only thing that’s missing is you.
Google Hangouts are absolutely awesome.
With just the click of a few buttons, you can message or video chat with virtually anyone, from friends to customers. Several companies are utilizing Google Hangouts to connect with their customers in a more intimate way.
I think one of the most important things to remember is that Google will index their own content quicker then anyone else. So your blogs and posts will index quickly and show up in Google searches quicker giving you and your brand more awareness.
Bottom line is this. If your a business and have a Facebook page you should have a Google+ page as well.
Remember, Google+ is connected to Gmail, YouTube, Google Drive, AdWords, Blogger, and Google Search.
