NEW: 29-point checklist to optimize your Google+ profile
Your Google+ Profile is an amazing branding tool, because of the feature-rich sections it offers to people and business pages. If you want to get the most out of this space, you need this checklist, and the resources I put inside to help with the how-to stuff.There is no charge for this checklist, and it is delivered via email to your inbox.http://www.gplusstrategies.com/profile-optimization-checklist/In the interest of full disclosure, because I want to earn your trust, here are a few things about this checklist, and my marketing strategy behind it. Most marketers will not provide this information, but I'm not most marketers. And I'm putting it right here in this post, not in a comment where it can get lost if the post is shared:I ask for your email address. Why?
1) Because I send you the checklist via email, so you have an easy way to get back to it for reference. There's a lot to go over.
2) So I can follow up with anyone who has trouble downloading the PDF. It's already happened a handful of times. And I want you to be able to use this, since you're providing me your email address. I value and want to honor that exchange of information.
3) So I can send you valuable insights and examples related to this checklist, so your Google+ profile totally kicks butt. Maybe some of those insights cost money, maybe they're blog posts I found around the web, but in all cases I'll be striving to add value to your wanting to optimize your Google+ profile.
That last part is where 99% of marketers who are doing inbound marketing through opt-ins will screw up. They get your email for one thing they're offering, and think they can blast you whatever they want, void of context or value to you. Not me. Ask my subscribers, I don't roll that way.
Now, like I said, under normal circumstances I wouldn't go through these lengths to disclose my intentions, I'd just hope you'd click through and download the checklist. Personally, I feel like I've earned your trust in the community here on G+ to avoid this whole discussion, but I value the relationships I've built here and do not want to misrepresent myself. So there you have it folks, I hope this is useful to you, and that you share it here & outside Google+ so others getting started can be set up for success. #googleplus #stephanhovprotip #googleplusbusiness
