It’s Google, need we say more? Google Plus is Google’s answer to Facebook. Their social media platform is tied directly to the largest search engine in the world.
Businesses often get confused by the products Google offers for Digital Marketing. Consult PR breaks it down here:
Google Plus (synonymous with Google My Business) are brand pages for businesses that do not have a physical address, like a brick and mortar business. Home based businesses, virtual companies, etc are accommodated by Google Plus with a page for the business to reach out to followers and customers. With Google Plus, you can share updates and link your brand page to your website, posting videos and photos, very similar to a Facebook Business page. Your business will not be listed in Google Maps. Our Digital Marketing experts will set up your presence on Google Plus if your business falls into this category.
A Google Local Business page is for businesses to claim and verify their location so you show up on Google maps, showcase directions to your business, and list your hours of operation. It’s a process that our Digital Marketing department handles for our clients to ensure all of their information is correct. Similar to Google Plus, you can post updates, follow others, and engage with your customers.
Why sort through all of this own your own? It’s not as easy as Facebook and Consult PR’s Digital Marketing team can handle this for you so you can focus on running your business.
