Dominating Google +

Dominating Google + Dominating Google +

Google+ is the hottest thing in social media. In just a few short days, the site gathered hundreds of thousands of users, making it a definite contender in the social media arena. A few weeks after launch, it was up to more than twelve million users! With such explosive growth, it is poised to become a major player very quickly. As I write this it is still in Beta and people everywhere are wanting to know how they can become part of  and Dominating Google + for their particular niche.

There is even some buzz in the world of social marketing that perhaps Google+ might even eventually replace Twitter, because it is so easy to use and integrates so many features into one unique platform. I am not sure that it will replace Facebook but am sure they will give it a very good go…

Obviously, anyone who is serious about promoting their brand should take advantage of emerging technology, and Google+ is at the forefront of new developments in social networking. This is the perfect time to join the game! So if you are not part of “The Game” then you need to be.

Trouble is, it’s another thing to learn and with our heads swiming with all the information we already have it’s another thing to learn, so to be honest I was walking on the sidelines just watching then I got invited and just had to jump in.

There are lots of things I like about Google + and lot’s I am not likeing as yet, but we are working on it.

If you want to be Dominating Google + in your niche then you need to know how to use it… I am going to give you some tips in this blog post, and also off a FREE Report which you can download and it will give you some more help, Just scroll to bottom of page.

I am going to give you a summary of whats in the Dominating Google + Free Report, you can go ahead and download it as well…

6 Tips to Dominating Google +

Tip #1: Google+ Viral Marketing

One of the most powerful aspects of Google+ is the +1 function. This function allows individuals to share things they like by using the +1 button. This has the potential to allow your marketing to go viral through Google+ users.
You can add a +1 button to your own blogs and websites, and you can even customize your plus one button. Just visit the following URL to customize your +1 button….

Tip #2: Getting Google+ Friends

Obviously, getting contacts is paramount. The more friends you have, the better, but they must also be targeted. It won’t do you a lot of good to have a million contacts if they aren’t interested in whatever you’re offering!
Contact lists on Google+ are known as “Circles”. You can have as many circles as you like, and you can divide people into various circles. Your contacts will not see which circle you’ve added them to, so you don’t have to worry about offending anyone. You can easily keep your family and friends separate from your business contacts if you’d like to use the same account for both business and personal contacts. It is actually very easy to get contacts right now as everyone wants to join :-)

Tip #3: Moderate your Promotion

One of the biggest mistakes people make with social marketing is spamming their followers. While social marketing is essentially permission-based, you can still spam your followers if you post too often. Because of the potential viral marketing element, it is especially important to moderate your promotion on Google+, because you want those promotions you make to be impactful. More people will +1 your links if you post them rarely

Tip #4: Hangouts

Hangouts are live, multi-person video conferences between Google+ users. These are great, because they can be used for webinars, and you can get a lot of people together at once.

Hangouts are great for making presentations to your audience. Be sure to put together an outline or script before you begin to eliminate a lot of the “ums” and “uhs” you might get otherwise, and schedule the webinar a day or two in advance to give people plenty of time to clear their schedules.

One major reason you should use Hangouts is because you can get live feedback from the other people who attend the video chat. This allows you to figure out what people want to know without having to ask them upfront. I love Hangouts they are one of the best features and really where you can be Dominating Google + as the expert in your field… people love to hangout with like minded people…

Tip #5: Sparks

Sparks ( funny names) is a search engine that is based on recommendations. You can use it to share interesting content, including your own, and to seek the content shared by others within your circles.

You can subscribe to live feeds and receive instant updates on content shared around those topics. That also means people will be able to receive the recommendations you make.

You’ll be able to share pictures, videos, and links to websites, blog posts, and more with those people who are in your circles, as well as those who add you to their contact list.

Tip #6: Huddle

Huddle ( the names just keep getting better) is a text message service that will let you send text messages instantly to the people you’re in contact with. You can send messages to single people or to entire groups of people!

If you’ve ever wanted to get into mobile marketing but didn’t know how, this is the perfect chance for you to give it a try!

You can also sync your Google+ account with almost any mobile device, allowing you to instantly upload photos, tag locations with your phone’s GPS, add locations to your updates, and much more.
