MasterList: GooglePlus For Your Creative Business


Confession: I tried really hard to write a MasterList about Facebook this week. But Andrea Cole did such a good job in her post  this week, I just couldn’t find anyone else saying anything useful!

Instead, I found everyone was talking about Google+ and well, now I’ve gotta join in and share the good stuff.


Here it is the best of what’s out there:


28 Google+ Tips to Enhance Your Google Plus Experience - A great list of things you might not have figured out while casually clicking around.



“The +1 button is a way to signal your approval of a contact’s post (whether it be text, a photo, a video, etc) and effectively validate it as a good source of information.", 5 Things Small Businesses Must Know About Google Plus


"Building an audience on Google+ may be the smartest thing you do as a content marketer when it comes to improved search rankings. "

-Brian Clark 

“Google Plus makes adding people to circles so extremely easy and fast. If you already have them created, it just falls right into your workflow.”

-Sarah J. Bray

This is the best example of how a real live business is using Google+ and she explains circles in a way that makes so much sense.

If you’re new to Google+ and want to try it out, plus me up  and we’ll figure it out together.
