You can never have too many accounts especially if this one would help you generate more searches and leads towards your business or website.
So hop on the Google Plus train before your business gets left out! Here are 6 quick tweaks to help you optimize your Business’ Google Plus Page.
1. Optimize your About Page
Most business pages make the mistake of not properly filling out this area and that is a HUGE mistake.
Fill in important content in your About Page and make a concise description of your business.
This information will appear in the search results page so keep it interesting.
Google allows hyper-linking so use this in your favor without overdoing it. Just put in some links that will mean something to your audience.
2. Design your Page
Adding photos on your page has more benefits than what meets the eye.
Aside from keeping it attractive and gives more chances that your audience will browse your page, your business will be referenced for the images you put up on your Google+ page.
Photos unique to your business increases branding. You may also put up some infographics about the industry you are in and credit other businesses or make one from your own research!
3. Interact within your Niche
Keep your profile updated with relevant press releases and other useful information that will trigger the interest of your market.
A few interesting posts that will be shared multiple times is better than a lot of spam.
Be updated with the current trending topics within your industry and find ways to interact and take part.
4. Link out to your Google Plus page
Make your audience aware of your Google+ presence by making sure that you have an outbound link from your website to your Google+ Business Page.
Promote your Google plus page on your website by giving them a glimpse on what you post on your page.
Do not forget the +1 button option! Include the +1 button on your articles and keep your entries worth-sharing.
5. Maximize the Recommended Links Bar
On your profile’s About page, Google has given business page a chance to add necessary links.
Place a direct link to your website and a few deep links to your most interesting articles/products pages to draw attention.
You may also want to add in links to your other social media profiles.
6. Promote your Google+ page to other Social Networks
This step is kind of tricky.
Your audience may not want to add you in their circle if you just ask them to add you in their circles without differentiating your Google+ page to your other pages.
Therefore, put in interesting content on your page and then promote it on your other networks, like Facebook and Twitter. Make a “pleasant noise” about your Google+ page on other networks to have more impact.
With these 6 tweaks, you are almost ready to launch or relaunch your Google+ page.
Just some more reminders, optimizing is not spamming. Put yourself in your audiences’ shoes and post only what is relevant and useful for you.
Keep your page social. Engage, incite and inspire your audience about trending topics related to your business.
Lastly, make sure that you check on the Optimization of your Google+ page. Cheers to your Google+ page success!
