Google Plus is more than a social network. And, if used correctly, and consistently, it could make a big difference in the way Google (The Search Engine) views your website's content.

Consult with a local SEO and/or Social Media Consultant to map out a strategy. Find someone you can trust and who will be available as you need him/her. Don't throw money at someone to "do it for you." Become familiar with the basics, and start looking internally (or create a new position) for someone who can focus their attention on your Social Media visibility.

Since Google adds people to Google+ the minute they sign up for an email account, that's a lot of people that could see your website.
