The team at Allstate Transmission Repair in Phoenix, is a good example how businesses are taking advantage of social media trends.
Jeff Wilson, GM at Allstate Transmissions of Phoenix states “Everyone understands the importance of having a Twitter and Facebook Fan Page for their business, but I believe ignoring the potential that Google’s offering with G+ is a huge mistake. It’s still young, but with Google’s power backing it and the way it integrates with other Google sites and services like; Google’s search engine, Gmail, Google Maps, Blogger, YouTube and Picasa, it’s only a matter of time before it’s larger than all the other social media sites combined.”
Google+ is finally starting to catch on with business owners that realize its potential. A relatively new social media venue, released to the public September 20th, 2011, has gained over 170 million registered users in the first 9 months. As a means to compete with Facebook, Google is heavily promoting the site by linking the Google+ business pages to the Google Places Business Listings. Google is also giving preference to search query result ranking if the searched terms are related to Google+ page content, especially when users are logged in during a search.
“I like the fact that Google+ allows its users to +1 and recommend items across the web to their friends and contacts” Wilson says “it’s much easier to share liked sites or pages rather than having to log into previous social bookmarking sites like; StumbleUpon, Digg, Reddit, etc, it has combined everything into one network.”
Allstate Transmissions still plans on keeping all their other social sites up to date so followers who don’t migrate over can still stay in touch with the transmission shop’s latest updates and events, but I think they’re headed in the right direction with Google+ and being able to offer their followers a nice variety of ways to interact with the company.
