They thought it was the Facebook killer, they thought people would love Google plus…
…well, it didn’t quite turn out to be such a success, yet it’s still a pretty great idea to use Google plus for business…
…not for SEO though, a lot of marketers seem to think adding Google comments will boost their rankings, but they will not, that’s the same as those weirdos who try to impress the teacher in school to get an A, it just doesn’t work.
This is what works:
They are like webinars only free and more social. You can use them to promote, sell, impress, basically all types of social marketing activities… and you know how powerful live video is.
Community marketing is the bomb. You only need a thousand raving fans to turn your book into a best seller…
…I forgot who said that, but it’s a killer saying, and it’s quite true.
A few years ago I started a community… I called it ‘Wealth community’, ti was the first of its kind, most were about jokes and quotes and stuff like that, I knew people would search for something more business related and I knew mine would be the fist they’d find. So many cool people joined and I made a lot of friends, got some traffic and quite a few sales.
My blog back then was nothing special, If I had started the community with a company like the one I have today, I would have made a gazillion sales.
I no longer run this community as it’s too much work and I have no time for it, I like to concentrate on building different types of assets now.
People love to join communities, they make them feel safe in the jungle called Internet.
You know what social signals mean – populararity… at least they do to Google. They might not be that important for SEO, but they sure are important to show people you are famous and they have to follow you.
You can use this Mashshare to get ten times more shares…
… see those beautiful Mashable looking buttons on top and at the bottom of my posts?
That’s Mashshare, it is superior to everything else, read this to see what I mean:
Google plus pages
Google pages are different from Facebook pages mainly because a lot of times when a page’s fans search for something on Google, the search engine would display posts from that page relevant to the search.
What’s better than this?
I know what – ranking your blog articles with no links… shouldn’t have asked the question.
Google plus is big, not as big as everybody expected, but it’s big… it has a lot going on and they just updated it and made simpler, faster and better. I like it a lot, but I just can’t find the time for all those social sites, which is why i have people running my social marketing campaigns.
