In this course, author Lorrie Thomas Ross teaches you how to use Google+ to effectively promote a business. Discover how to set up an account for a business or client, and add company information, post photos and video, create compelling copy to market products or services, and improve your reach with contacts. Find smart ways to leverage the power of Google+ circles, blogging, and video sharing to make a real and lasting connection with an audience. This course also shows you ways to improve market visibility and open an online dialogue about your business.
Another tip I wanted to share is managing our circles on Gmail, and the beauty of Google+ is that it does integrate with a lot of things you are already doing Google, whether that's using google.com, using Gmail, YouTube, Blogger, or Google Docs, and more. I'm going to go ahead and hit Gmail, and it's great. So you're going to have your contacts here, and you'll see Akee Ning Wu and she is a follower of the No Obstacles page and she is also part of the No Obstacles business network, and I am logged in as Jaryl Leonard from a personal Google+ perspective, but it's really easy to manager circles not only through the Circles tab, which is back here on your page whether it's your personal or professional, but for those of you that have Gmail accounts, and you want to connect with folks you can connect with them and update your circles here, and you can add people to circles.
But also when you see people who are messaging you and they are also users of Google+, you can go ahead and update your contacts here. So I wanted to point that out, and that Google+ for business is of course your business page, but it's also how you manage your professional contacts.
