"The use of Social Media has been consistently increasing, and it's importance and relevance to SEO and internet presence management services is at an all time high", states CEO Michael Huth.
"We have been using webinars and internal documents like this to train our franchise clients on Social Media best practices since we started, the Google Plus Guide was drafted as a quick reference to aid our clients in getting up and running with the growing social media platform. We found that Google Plus is a quick and easy social media tool to use for sharing thoughts, ideas, links, videos and photos with specifically targeted audiences." Continues Micheal Huth.
One of the most important considerations for using Google Plus, is to not limit thinking about it as just a Social Site, but as a mobile optimized version of a company site that can promote your business online. As of February, more U.S. adults own smartphones than simpler feature phones, according to new research from the Pew Internet and American Life Project.
Cell phones are by far the most popular device among American adults, especially for adults under the age of 65. Some 85% of adults own cell phones overall. Taking pictures (done by 76% of cell owners) and text messaging (done by 72% of cell owners) are the two non-voice functions that are widely popular among all cell phone users*.
Google Plus has done a good job of handling these two popular features. Instant Upload saves space on a camera, and makes it easy to edit and share photos. Chat already popularized in Gmail is also built in so real time conversations can be made.
Google Plus can be used alone or combined with other Google services, knowing how to and where to begin is important. One of the many things that stands out from an experience you might have while using Google Plus is that you can engage in social conversations immediately. It takes time and a certain number of friends to even claim a name and communicate with people on Facebook. With Google Plus you can start engaging the same day.
