When Google+ first came on the scene a few years ago, no one knew what to make of it: was it supposed to be a competitor to Facebook? How could we use with Twitter? Etc. But Google+ has become a powerful social media tool in its own right that should be incorporated into your social media strategy. Folks, it’s time to get your marketing on with Google+.
Here are a few reasons why:
- It has a strong visual impact, which is important, given the rise of visual networking
- It has 359 monthly active users, making it the second largest social network
- No ads — Facebook is great for marketing, but it’s increasingly becoming a platform on which you have to pay to get any real visibility in front of your audience
- It’s great for local SEO because of Google+ Places Page: listing your business on Google+ increases page rank for local search
Sounds awesome doesn’t it? Of course it does. But if you haven’t the time or the wherewithal to market your business on Google+ or any other social media marketing platform, shoot us an email for more information about our services.
