Google+ continues to grow at lightning speed. Currently around 50 million people per month are joining which immediately confirms this particular social network as the fastest growing ever.

The impressive birth, growth and rise of Google+ are clearly seen as a major rival especially to Facebook. Google+ has continued to evolve and change as new features are frequently being added. It is strongly advisable to have business pages on both Facebook and Google+ as many people use just one or the other. Your message especially will spread far and wide when you are active on both.
Social Media has become a phenomenal vehicle to promote your business. It is now one of the main resources to gain new Followers, get more Traffic and make more Sales. Additionally your business enjoys more recognition thereby increasing brand awareness. While Google+ is used for social networking in the conventional sense it is just as equally seen as a business networking forum. You business will definitely reap great benefits from being active on this platform. Working with the ‘Circles’ option allows you to categorise and compartmentalise people into different designated groups.
Google+ growth is likely to see this particular Social Network rise to the no. 2 position by August, 2012 if not sooner. It will then overtake Twitter and Linkedin and completely blow away Myspace and many other major social media sites. Monitoring the progress and meteoric rise of the most powerful of the social media sites is definitely an important factor in today’s world. You ignore social networking sites at the peril of your business!
Plan your strategy as to what you intend to do on Google+ in order to get the best results from the site. When you are properly organised, have interesting features on your ‘business page’, including attractive photos, images and well worded statements then you are more likely to interest more people. Also by showing interest in other peoples programs they then are more likely to show equal or possibly more interest in what you have to say. Offer a special ebook or something especially different to encourage new subscribers to your Google+ Pages site.
Google+ is a social network that you cannot ultimately afford to be without. So go and make the most of this giant in the social media world. You will not be disappointed when used correctly. It will take a little time to get used to the various options that are afforded to you but you will be rewarded for your patience. There are additional Google benefits potentially from an SEO perspective by using Google+ actively on a regular basis. Link your Google+ Page to your website and blog and back. This is likely to be seen as a positive move in Google’s eyes!
