Why To Build Google+ Communities.

It’s no secret that the Google+ community is no more than just a toddler at the heels of the social media movement.

However, Google+ product marketing manager Matt Cooke, confirmed recently that

Google+ has 540 million monthly active users, 300 million of which view their Google+ content stream at some time during the month. It’s secret is all about Google+ communities. So here’s why you should build yours.

Understanding your customers: It’s a great way to get in to the mindset of your customers or clients.

A better way to work out how people talk about your own company, its products and it’s services.

Free Feedback: Allowing people to vocalise what they think about your services or products gains instant credibility. And it’s no secret that the more Google+ clicks you get the better it will be on Google search. People will always trust recommendations from people they know better than any other review.

Divide and Conquer: You can build both private and public communities to nurture different ideas and offer different privileges and pursue different agendas.

Circle It: Google+’s unique circle structure allows you to customise your messages to different groups. It’s a great way to track different types of content you may be interested in as well. You can have a daily check in on search terms and groups that keep you in the know.

Work the Hangouts: It’s now easy to actually put on your own event by using Google+ Hangouts.

You can broadcast on any subject to any number of people. This is a unique way of becoming an influencer in the social media arena. Brands like Cadbury’s have used this to their advantage.

More than 1.5 billion photos are uploaded to Google+ every week. Check out The Economist, Topshop, Ferrari, BMW or H&M for inspiration and then start as you mean to go on.

a testimonial or two…

Since working with Jason from Search and More we have built up an excellent relationship with both him and his company. We truly feel that they are interested and committed to improving our on-line presence. From creating our weekly blogs right through to totally re-designing our website to ensure that it is ‘mobile friendly’. I would say that Search and More have become an integral part of our business and I would recommend their services whole heartedly.
