Of all the things to write my first blog post about and it is going to be about Google+ and my adventures with this social media network. The first thing to do with Google+ is to open an account and set everything up!!! This includes, your profile, basic images, location, and all that fun stuff. Side note: Images are helluva lot better on Google+ than Facebook! Now you will need to expand your circles. I would say start with people you know who are on and add them to a circle. You won’t really have to wait for them to accept a “friend request.” After that expand your search in your area of business. The search function is fabulous. Don’t forget to give them a +1 follow. Local businesses are a good start along with regular people. Remember that +1 follow? Do it! It is similar to a “like” on Facebook but better on the search engine. Look for a widget for community surfing for your area. Potential customers are just waiting for your awesomeness.
Google_ has a nifty feature called Hangouts. You can interact with 10 people at once and even broadcast it live on youtube. Show off your skills with a hosted video chat on hangouts or broadcast a live shoot!!!. Don’t just rely on text-based communication. Work that video, your camera more than likely has video capabilities. Let us hear your voice with is exquisite tones and inflection. Enrapture us with your facial clues and turn us on with your body language! Hangouts is like Skype with a twist of social networking.
I plan on doing a live vid as soon as I figure it out lol. I will pass on this information to all of you! So spread the word of this blog, add me to your circles, and give me that ol +1. Show the love, spread the love, be the love!
