Google+ as come a long way since it started but the same problem is worrying businesses around the world is Google+ a place for my business or is it just a false ( Unthink, FriendFeed). The simple answer is yes, whatever your business is whether your a freelancing artist or your banker there’s a place for everyone on Google+ and here’s why:
95% of searches are on Google which may sound irrelevant but when you create a Google+ page and the correct Author Tags to your website you’ll notice more visits to your site without even being active on Google+. Once you become active on Google+ is when the real magic starts to happen you’ll notice your search results climbing, more people talking about your business and you’ll have the chance to be highly influnctnetal in your field.
Facebook can boast 1 billion active users which is almost one seventh of the world population. The problem with Facebook is that it’s hard to get your business noticed without using adverts which are costly and they interrupt people. Facebook users are becoming more and more disrupted with their service according to Foresee a trusted customer experience analytics business. Last July Google+ users were 17% more satisfied than Facebook’s which could be a sign of things to come.
If you haven’t already head over to Google+ and create a page and start engaging and see the difference it can make to your marketing efforts.
