Google+ is a relatively new addition to the world of social media, but it has already taken the world by storm. This platform is user-friendly, and is especially helpful to small business owners. Unlike Facebook, Google+ is geared toward businesses, and since it is integrated with Google, it automatically syncs with maps, online info about your business, etc.
So, why should you use Google+ for your small business?
Cost Effective Marketing
Google+ is not only easy to use, but it's also free! At no charge, you can set up your account, create a business page, and start being found by potential customers! This is an extremely cost-effective way to boost your online presence since Google automatically gives higher priority to those with Google+ profiles.
Since Google+ operates on a "circle" basis, it makes networking with other businesses, and with customers, incredibly easy. Basically, you join "circles", and create circles of your own, which are groups of people based on interests, family, etc. By having the ability to join circles that pertain to your own business, you create networking connections that can be powerful assets to your business and growth.
Good Option for a "Pre-website"
Don't have the money or resources for a website for your small business? We think it should be a priority to have a website online representing your business as soon as possible, but we recognize that some clients aren't yet ready for that step. Having a high-quality Google+ profile will at least get your name, business information, location, and samples of your work online for potential clients and customers to see until you can get a full website up and running. It offers a more professional appearance and layout than Facebook so it can stand in as a sort of "pre-website" for those who are just starting out in the small business world.
