  • We all jump in personally to figure this thing out…we create circles, we hangout, we share pics, we read streams, we even play a game or two. So now we are in it. We get it (for the most part), now….
  • Not only can you not create them, they have taken many of them down as of July 21 st . While some remain in tact, others have been graciously converted to personal profiles, but many are gone. If you are live, you are flying under the radar, prepare yourself. BUT, there is always a workaround. You can still “do” business through Google+ even if you aren’t a business. Get Linked in on it. There wasn’t always a Company profile page, just like Facebook didn’t always have Profiles for businesses. Encourage employees to signup and include descriptive information about themselves and what they do at your company. Go back to your social Protocols Build it out. Wear a logo on your shirt, have a pic of you in front of the sign in front of your building, photoshop a tag along the bottom with the name of your business….or run the risk of building a profile for your business.

While some remain in tact, others have been graciously converted to personal profiles, but many are gone. If you are live, you are flying under the radar, prepare yourself for the smackdown. But, There’s Always a Workaround BUT, there is always a workaround. You can still “do” business through Google+ even if you aren’t a business. Get All “LinkedIn” on Google+ Remember when there was no company profile on LinkedIn, or when Facebook didn’t always have Profiles for businesses. Encourage employees to signup and include descriptive information about themselves and what they do at your company. Go back to your company’s social protocol; the same rules. Build it out - COMPLETELY. Wear your most obnoxious logo’d t-shirt as your profile pic, or a pic of you in front of your well-branded building, Don’t forget you can always Photoshop a tag along the bottom with the name of your business….or run the risk of building a profile for your business.

  • Getting Friendly Remember: The beauty of allowing people to be in multiple circles means you can have someone who is both a real life friend, client, prospect, or other – and they will never know. Get Ahead of the Crowd: Create connections with those that you want to get in front of in your specific industry, those who are writers, editors and bloggers; those you consider mentors and other industry experts. Tailor shared content to fit the circle – show your clients how smart you are, educate prospects on your vast knowledge, share your successes with everyone.

  • We Friends, So Now What How to start the conversation? Try replying to relevant content or even resharing interesting information with your own circle (don’t forget to add some value via a comment or recommendation) Post something that is targeted and relevant to the circle you are trying to increase your engagement with. Add a link to your latest blog post (taking it back to Social Media and SEO 101) +1 items in Google Search results – this will show in search results to those that are connected to you when they do a similar search.
