Shoppable hangouts - making online spending easier while improving the customer experience
Browse & Buy in a Google+ Shoppable Hangout on Air
On Stone Temple Consulting's Digital Marketing Excellence Show today, +Eric Enge and +Ronnie Bincer discussed Shoppable Hangouts with Google's Ria Tobaccowala.

Google Shopping Short List + Google Hangouts = Shoppable Hangout

Shoppable Hangout is a combination of Google Shopping List and Google Hangouts that creates a Social Shopping experience, that allows consumers to more closely interact with a business' products, during a Google+ HOA.

What can you expect?

On the right-hand-side of the hangout screen, 3 promotion areas display clickable tiles (images) that display products. When selected, these will lead (in a different window) to a Google Shopping Shortlist kind-of product where participants can look and browse a collection of products. When selected, these will lead to the business' or brand's product page.

Since Shoppable Hangout is just in the Beta stage, only a limited number of brands have had the good fortune of enjoying the social shopping experience. Albeit the number of Shoppable Hangout experiences have been small (17 to date), the feedback has been huge.

Participating brands reported:

> increase website traffic
> brand recognition/brand value
> social media buzz
> increased engagement (during HOA)

Because using Shoppable Hangout is an app (like the Hangouts Q&A app), it requires nothing special to enjoy. IN FACT, the audience can participate (browse and buy) without a Google+ account.

On the other hand, the host of the Shoppable HOA must:

1. have an e-commerce website
2. provide links for the tiles
3. have a product page that receives payments

For more information about Shoppable Hangout, circle +Ria Tobaccowala.

Important Note: Once the live Shoppable HOA is complete the special watch page, with tiles and links, does not transfer to YouTube. However, as Ria suggested, annotations would likely work well.

Handy dandy infographic on the social networks you need to build your personal brand
This is a great little infographic looking at "How to use 10 social networks to grow your personal online brand". 

I feel this should come with a word of warning, Don't spread yourself to thin. Pick the networks that work best for you. Regardless of which networks you pick this infographic should contain some useful information for you.

You can also read this great blog post by +Jeff Bullas (which is where I discovered the infographic): http://www.jeffbullas.com/2013/05/27/how-to-market-your-personal-online-brand-on-10-social-media-networks/#wryM2bpZcXk3kwqS.99
