Why Social Networkers
Can’t Afford To Ignore Google+
The most common question I get about Google+ for social networkers is WHY! … Why Google+? … Why anything other than Facebook?… Why leave the comfort of a place we know so well?
Building a network on Google+ is both powerful and relatively easy… but its important to know a couple key tips or you may not agree!
Here is a snippet from the monthly WordPress & Social Marketing Q&A webinar I run monthly where I explain how I approach the two platforms, the differences between my pages and profiles, and how I easily build a network on Google+ that is more challenging to build on Facebook in many cases.
As I mentioned, Facebook is a great place designed for connecting with people you already know. Its entire structure is around that format and you can be punished for doing otherwise. The culture on Google+ is very different and makes it easy to both find and get to know people that are brand new to who you are and what you do.
Take advantage of the power of internal searching to expand the people you can get to know.
And one other super-important tip… be sure that YOUR keywords, interests etc are in your About tab of your profile to make YOU more findable!
