333marketing is a digital marketing agency specializing in design & social media

When I first entered the blogging world back in March of this year, there was an insane amount of information to learn. One of the most resourceful things I took in was the fact that Google+ should be utilized, and often!

Presently, Facebook and Twitter are still the powerhouses of all things social media and although that might not change anytime soon, Google+ is not an outlet to turn your nose up to. Managing a Google+ profile for your business and/or blog not only can help with better rankings in Google search, but also drives authentic interaction between you and your readers.

Here are my top 5 reasons you need to be on Google+…NOW:

1. Because it’s Google

This first reason should be a no-brainer, Google+ IS Google! Google is the world’s largest search engine, and in turn can be picky about what businesses and brands will be on its front pages. A business page on Google+ can help with that…but like anything else, do not expect results in Google without working at it. Useful and informative content will always put you ahead of the class!

2. Size matters

Google+ is huge! With a whopping 359 million active users, Google+ is surpassing Twitter as the second largest social networking website. Those numbers make for an enormous playing field for sharing your business ideas.

3. Integration

One of the coolest and most convenient things about Google+ is it is already connected to services you most likely already use such as Gmail, YouTube, and Google Drive!

4. Staying ahead of the game

Most of the time when something new comes on the scene, it can take bigger brands a while to jump on the bandwagon. Using your Google+ profile and keeping it up to date can put you way ahead of the competition before the next new idea makes its way onto the platform!

5. Be seen

Google+ allows you to add authorship to your posts, which in turn means your profile photo will appear next to your content. So what? Well, its proven that trust can be just as powerful visually as it is emotionally. With the ability for your readers to view who the content is coming from, it is more likely that they will click on a post!

We know a few things are certain when it comes to Google+: the platform is constantly evolving and isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, so use it! If your business isn’t on Google+, contact a digital marketing specialist at 333marketing today, they will get you noticed on the web!

    I love Google+ and I recommend it to all new bloggers! I especially love the communities. I learn so much from then and gain a lot of followers and views from there. There’s still so much to learn when it comes to blogging and I’ve been doing it for a while. I feel like I would only learn it all if I didn’t work 40 hrs a wk and blogging was my full time job!! #FHFridays
