Google+ is here and it's a new business tool that's changing everything

Google+ for Business: How Google's Social Network Changes EverythingEvery week, millions more people sign up for Google+. Suddenly, it's today's hottest new social network.

A new book - Google+ for Business - reveals why Google+ offers business opportunities available nowhere else -- and helps you grab those opportunities now, before your competitors do.

Top social media professional speaker and business advisor Chris Brogan shows how to get great results fast, without wasting time -- and without wasting a dime.

Join us on 2 November when popular (and bestselling) author and marketer, Chris Brogan, is our guest on BOOKED for Lunch - Free webinars with the world's leading business book authors and thinkers.

 

What is Google+ good for?

For one thing, Chris Brogan tells us it's good as a storytelling platform. So, you can use it to tell your business story and that of your customers.

It's also great for content marketing - the content is searchable and loved by the search engines (no doubt, Google in particular).

You can read more here on Chris's recent blog post.

In the book (and in next week's webinar interview), Chris Brogan will guide you through using Google+ for promotion, customer service, community building, referrals, collaboration and a whole lot more. You won't just master innovative new tools like Circles and Hangouts; you'll use them to generate more customers and more cash!

 

Who is using Google+?

A couple of weeks ago, Guy Kawasaki was our guest on a webinar in which he spoke about How to Enchant with Social Media. During that presentation, he said that he's now using Google+ more than Facebook (and he's a BIG-time Facebook user) and went on to demonstrate some of the great benefits.

If Guy's using it, then I figure marketers everywhere should check it out.

And, just for fun - here' s slink to a story that tells us that both the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu are now using Google+.

Here at the Australian Businesswomen's Network, we are very new to the use of Google+, but we are watching it very closely. And, after next week's webinar with Chris Brogan, I figure we'll be totally convinced that we should be using it, but more than that, we'll have some great practical advice on why and how.

 

I hope you'll join us.
