Title: Three Ways to Use a Personal Google+ Profile to Build Your Business
Here’s an excerpt:
I’m already proving building an influential Google+ personal profile can be an effective brand-building tool. My agency’s page (Virante Search Marketing) now has over 1200 followers on Google+. We’re no H&M Fashions (over half a million followers), but it’s enough to make us the third highest ranking brand page for “search marketing” in a non-logged-in G+ search. We’re the highest ranked actual business for that term (numbers 1 and 2 both represent blogs). It’s hard to tell without analytics (which Google+ says are still “coming soon”), but I’m convinced that a large part of that following has come from my increasingly influential personal profile, which is clearly linked to my agency brand.
Excellent read, I’ve been working on my personal brand for years as a Realtor in Charleston WV. I’ve been delving a little further into using my Google+ profile more effectively but am stumped as to how to use my “Business Place/Page” rather than my personal account. The Branding/SEO for Real Estate is tricky because do I make my page “Charleston WV Realtor” or “Bret Nida Realtor” or just Bret Nida and forget about Keywords?.. Any who, a little ramble on rose there….
I plan to do a little more research on that and I’m sure I can find it on your site! Thanks again!
Bret have you figured this out yet. I struggle with the same. I am a Realtor and also involved with an awesome video tour company called Vision Tech Media powered by Reveeo I thought you might find valuable being the innovator you are. Check out Reveeo. See you on the site. We can pick up the conversation there.See the press release at reveeo.us
