Google+ for Brands Best in Show Webinar

1,789

Published on

Today I did a webinar for Bulldog Reporter/PR University titled "Google+ for PR: Mastering Google+ Pages and Hangouts—Best Bets for Brands in 2013" and while I was indeed sharing the stage with the amazing Stephanie Scott, Katie Morse, Danielle Brigida, and Brian Pittman, this is just my part of the presentation without any edits or changes or cuts -- so you're welcome to enjoy just my part of it, wherein I talk about the three types of Google+ for Brands adopters: Hot & Heavies, Afterthoughts, and Zombie Ghost Towns. I hope you enjoy this, learn loads, and ask me tons of questions.

  23. 23. Proprietary and ConfidentialTIPS: HOT & HEAVY DEMANDS SEPARATE AND EQUAL • Google+ should be a child not a cousin • Repurposing from Facebook is fine but G+ is separate but equal • G+ offers hashtags, “+” tagging, galleries, albums • Promote & cross-promote G+ equally as Twitter & FB • All the cool kids are doing G+ by hand • Leading with full-sized images • Following with short URLs to content • Adding tags and hashes when needed • Post every single (week) day (forever) • Your followers are your friends • Don’t just preach at them, chat with them! 23 Brand + Digital

  27. 27. Proprietary and ConfidentialTIPS: AFTERTHOUGHTS MAY BE GOOD-FOR-NOW • Sometimes some G+ is better than no G+ • Cross-posting or auto-posting is a good start • While not a community, it may help SEO • At least your G+ profile isn’t a ghost town • At least you’re moving forward •  Testing the waters is fine for a while • HootSuite allows bulk-upload auto-posting • Cannot use the photo upload + tiny URL strategy • Cannot “+” tagging strategy to include others • Auto-posting puts brand page out of mind • If you don’t tend your garden, it’ll never grow • Just ask Chauncey Gardiner of Being There 27 Brand + Digital

  32. 32. Proprietary and ConfidentialZOMBIE GHOST TOWN: THE MUPPETS 32 Brand + Digital
  33. 33. Proprietary and ConfidentialTIPS: ZOMBIE GHOST TOWNS HURT MORE THAN HELP • Squandering hundreds-of-thousands of followers • Cross-posting or auto-posting is a good start • Broken windows theory of online community • The theory states that maintaining and monitoring urban environments in a well-ordered condition may stop further vandalism and escalation into more serious. • A blog, site, or social media profile that is poorly maintained telegraphs a lack of brand esprit de corps • Better to take down/delete zombie ghost towns • Better yet to get the lead out and at least upgrade to making Google+ Brands pages an afterthought • Visitors respond more to your voice than what you say 33 Brand + Digital
