Though it’s not quite the Facebook competitor it had initially set out to be, with 100M active users, Google+ is on the rise. And just because not all users have made the switch is not reason enough to discredit the social networking site. A Google+ account for your brand means improved SEO ranking and increased Google search visibility. While growing a Google+ following is a goal for some brands, for most, it is just about the benefit of having an account. In fact, simply signing up for an account can place you one or two places ahead of your competitors.

The +1 button also increases the chance of this visibility as the more +1’s a link has, the more attention it gets in search results. Additionally, Google+ circles create more personal relationships with consumers, even allowing businesses to have live video chat sessions with their audience through “hangouts.”

In terms of Google+ brand Pages done well, Red Bull and Ford are two great examples. In keeping with the rest of its marketing strategy, the Red Bull Google+ Page showcases the types of lifestyles its consumers choose rather than the product itself. Ford’s Page features its product and how it has evolved over the years, using its illustrious history to evoke feelings of strength, loyalty and trust.

My purpose is simple – to identify the authentic potential in brands, discover their beautiful truth and inspire them to tap into their purpose or their raison d'être (reason for being). This is a brand’s beautiful truth. Establishing that truth opens the door for fresh approaches and ideas that are unmistakably true to brand, yet breakthrough for consumers – suited for building businesses. It’s all about shattering category conventions, finding permission for new territory and ultimately building relevance and more meaningful experiences at every moment along the journey. I pride myself on getting people to fall in love with the brand, be it for the very first time and or all over again. Feel free to reach out to me if I can help in any way.
