What is Google+?
Google+ is a newer social networking service offered by Google that allows for status updates, links, photos and more to be shared much like they are on Facebook, but with the added privacy of sharing this information only with certain circles that you set up. If you already have a Google account, setting up a Google+ profile can be seamless.
What is a Google + Profile?
From Google: Your profile is the way you represent yourself on Google products and across the web. With your profile, you can manage the information that people see — such as your bio, contact details, and links to other sites about you or created by you.
While your profile is public, your full name is the only required information that will be displayed on your profile; you’ll be able to edit or remove any other information that you don’t want to share. Your profile is all about you, and you deserve to be in control of your information.
What Are Circles?
From Google: Google+ Circles helps you organize everyone according to your real-life social connections–say, ‘family,’ ‘work friends,’ ‘music buddies,’ and ‘alumni’. Then, you can share relevant content with the right people, and follow content posted by people you find interesting.
You can also decide to customize your personal profile information for your circles. For example, your contact details, location, and relationship information would be visible to your friends circle, while your employment history and education would be visible to your alumni association circle.
Should I Set Up a Google+ Profile or a Google+ Page?
This depends on what your use for it will be. If you want a profile to share information with family and friends, but also with possible network marketing contacts, then a profile with different circles may be the best choice for you. If you would like to set up a page, specifically for your team, like XYZ Marketing, then a Google+ business page may make the most sense.
How will Google+ Help My Network Marketing Efforts?
Staying with the trends is always in your best interest for network marketing. Google+ allows you one more way to expand your network marketing reach online. Taking the time to learn what Google+ has to offer and sharing status updates and connecting it like minded individuals on can prove beneficial to building your business and Income for Life. If you create a Google+ business page, this page and its posts will also come up in search results, giving you another way to gain traffic.
