They said they’re working on it, and we’ve been listening closely for any and all updates….. well, alas, and it’s finally here!
Google Plus for businesses is now a reality.
Today Google introduced Google Plus Pages. Google+ pages is a bit like Facebook Fan Pages, in that you can have your personal profile and your business page.
Some argue, is there really a need for another social media platform for businesses to engage their customers and fans? You can make your own decision about it, but our advice is to be where your customers are. With over 40 million users already, it’s a strong indication that your customers may be hanging out there, and therefore, you may want your business to have its Google+ page.
If you’d like more information straight from Google, here are their own words: http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/11/google-pages-connect-with-all-things.html
Prior to today, you could only have a personal Google+ account that’s attached to your gmail. Today starts a brand new frontier!
Google does say that although it’s launched, it’s not “done” yet: “ Today’s initial launch of Google+ Pages brings us a little bit closer, but we’ve still got lots of improvements planned, and miles to go before we sleep. So stay tuned.”
