Google Hangouts Help Collection
Just getting started with Google+ Collections.

Here is one I pulled together that contains some helpful posts related to Google Hangouts Help postings. Collections makes it possible for me to gather similar posts (mine and from other people) into one place - kind of like a great Curation Tool.

If you choose to "Follow" a collection, you'll get back to it easier and get updated when new items are added to it (from what I understand).

‘Plus Your Business’ Community - (NEW) Weekly Roundup!
Check out the current happenings in the PYB Community. Read more…

Message from Martin: 
This week I am looking at how we can all best serve in the community.

As such, we are moving Plus Your Business very much in the direction of supporting Academy (paid) members to have access to our public Community and the Plus Your Business Page too. These are perfect ways for people to gain reach on their content without having to have tens of thousands of followers themselves. This is an exciting leap for us as we test and push further what can be achieved when a group of people come together, align themselves, and move forward. 
If you want to join the Academy, sign up here to become a supporter: 
Hope to see you there.

Sending a Private Post on Google+
Here is a basic how-to article on sending private messages to 1 or more people.

"Private" means only those to whom the post is addressed get to see it.

Thanks +Dustin W. Stout for pulling this together and h/t: +Mark Traphagen for the find.

How to Send a Private Message on Google+
The most effective way to communicate privately

It's surprising to me how many people aren't aware of a couple small nuances when it comes to sending a private message on Google+. I can definitely see though why these small details may be overlooked though. 

So I wrote this full tutorial on the optimal way to send private messages originally as a Google+ post and it has done very well. With this, it's a bit more comprehensive (well as comprehensive as you can get with this particular subject) and it features +Mark Traphagen pretty face. 

So, give it a read to brush up on your private messaging on Google+ and be sure to pass it along to the newbies in your circles! You'd be surprised at how helpful intro posts like this can be! 

For those of you short on time/attention, here's the cliff notes version:

- Create a new Google+ post
- Delete everything in the To: field
- Create a * Private Message * headline
- +Mention your intended recipient 
- Type your message and send

In the article I give a handful of ideas for using private messages and also reference +Ben Fisher's article that gives some fantastic ideas for businesses to take advantage of this technique! 

Happy plussing everyone!

Do you use Hangouts on Air as part of your Community Strategy?
Why would you want to use Community Centered HOAs?

Is your Google+ Public Community growing like you'd want it to be, or as engaged as you'd like? If not, utilizing Community Centered HOAs (CCHOAs) can make a big difference towards those goals.

When you utilize Community Centered Hangouts on Air you can:
► Increase the Size of your community
► Add value to your Brand
► Improve your community's Engagement
► Increase the Value of your community
► Help Focus the community
► Fully realize the Relationship Opportunities communities offer

Hangouts on Air (HOA) can add great value to the relationships we are fostering within Google Plus Communities. That value can be helpful to existing and new members of the community.

Live Discussion on Why CCHOAs are so Powerful
We'll be having a live video broadcast (HOA) discussing the use of CCHOAs within a community and why they seem to add so much momentum to a community on Tuesday April 28, 2015 @ 4pm EDT. Here's the link to sign up to view the free broadcast (either live or the recorded version)

Hope you can make it live and will add questions/comments for us to feature as part of the broadcast, but if you must miss the live event, you can always watch the free video replay on that same HOA Event page:

Add the Community Centered HOA concept to your Community!
Turn your Google+ Community into the thriving place it was meant to be by employing the techniques and concepts we'll be highlighting in this Scheduled HOA Event: RSVP there.

How to Use Google Plus Collections - text tutorial

Even though Collections were just launched today, some people have been quite busy documenting how to use them and make them. This one looks pretty good from what I can see. Hope it helps... thanks +Kol Tregaskes

How to Use Google+ Collections

What are Google+ Collections?

Google+ have launched a new feature they've called Collections.  What are Collections?  Well they are basically topics for your personal stream.

So you want to put your Google+ posts into categories then Collections does this.

How do I create a collection?

• Head over to the Collections page here: 
• Click on Create a collection box
• Give your collection a name and select whether you want visibility to be Public or Your circles or Only You or a custom setting
• And click the blue Create collection button

Can I edit my collection?

Sure, on the next screen you have the opportunity to customise your collection by changing the banner image and background colour from the Customise menu or editing or deleting the collection from the settings icon.

The one tip I have on this page is to select Edit collection from the settings menu and choose whether you want all your followers to see your posts in the collection (ticked) or not (unticked).  Personally, I have unticked this on most of mine so only people who have specifically selected to follow my collections will see the posts.  This allows me to post more but spam less and gives my readers the option to pick what topics they want to follow of mine instead of being forced to follow everything.

How do I share to my collection?

Sharing to your collections is easy and works the same way as before.  Select to share as normal but instead of selecting or typing Public, Your Circles, a community or user's name, select or type your collection's name and click on it.  Then click Share and you're all done.  You can do this from both the desktop and the Android app.

Can I share to more then one collection?

No, you can only share to a single collection.

How do I follow a Collection?

Depending on how the person has set up their Collections, you will either be following their collections already or you''ll need to find their collection and click to follow.

To follow a Collection seek out the person you want to follow and click on *Collections" from their profile page, for example:
From here click on the follow button.

You can also see the full list of collections you follow or from your circles from here:

From here you can select to follow or unfollow any collection.

What else do I need to know?

A few more points:

• You cannot move a share from one collection to another.  Instead you will have to remove the share then move to the second collection
• You can reshare from a collection to another collection but this is of course creating a new post, which you might not want
• If you select to delete a collection note that all posts in the collection are also deleted
• You can add any old post into a collection by clicking on the top-right dropdown menu and selecting Move to collection
• You can find featured collections here:
• You can see when a post is in a collection when you see the blue collection icon in the far top-right of the post as well as the name of the collection in the far top-left

There is no limit to the amount of collections you can create (that I've found so far anyway ;-)) so get creating and sharing! :-)

Enjoy and share yours and your favourite collections in the comments below! :-)

Where can I find more of your collections and links?

You can find a full list of my collections here:

And plenty more links and info here:

I've also created a collection for Collections, which includes all tips and guides here:

Enjoy collecting! :-)

I think I got it.  It's sort of like G+ communities but you don't have to subscribe to the collection to see the post unless the post is exclusively shared to a collection.

Google Plus Collections
Just launched to the public today May 4, 2015.

Collections are a new way to gather together old and new posts you and others make into a focused set (collection) of posts. More details are listed below and the tool will likely continue to grow in its use and functions.

On desktop, you can find the "Collections" menu choice right above the "Communities" menu on the left side of G+. It also is added to your G+ App on Mobile.

Here's a Google Hangouts Help collection I just started up

if you don't see it yet, give it some time, it is rolling out to everyone soon. 

A Key Tip... when you are adding a prior post into a collection, you'll want to be sure to use the "Move Post to Collection" option and not just "share" to the collection. Sharing seems to make a new post, Moving keeps the post as it was, but Adds it to the Collection.

More to come as we learn about it.

Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here:

Create your collections today and share what you love.

If you have questions then also be sure to check out our Help Center content; if you still can’t find an answer then please post your question in the Collections subcategory.

Hangout Mastery Members Only Q&A session re. Hangouts
This is a Private HOA for Hangout Mastery members in a Public Event.

Before the start time, I'll add in the HOA video for you to test the play arrow. If you can press that play arrow and you see the countdown timer you are using the proper account. If it tells you that the Video is Private then you will need to sign out of YouTube or G+ with the 'other account' and sign in again using the same account you use in our Private Membership Community. More details here

This is a monthly event for Hangout Mastery members... if you are a member (new or long-time member), please feel free to leave a comment/question about Hangouts or your membership. You can also ask to be in the filmstrip for this one in our private community.

Please realize that the Public (anyone) can see the comments here. I set it up this way so we can bring your questions/comments on screen via the Comment Tracker tool.

Using YouTube Cards to Promote Your Business
This main article discusses 5 ways that you can utilize YouTube Cards to send traffic to your website.

There are other "types" of Cards that do other things (like linking to another video or a playlist of videos), but sending people to your associated website is a very powerful use for Cards.

After you check out the article published by +Social Media Examiner you may want to return here to get more info on HOW to set them up and make them work.

Here is a link to an intro post I made when YouTube Cards first came out which includes the official help page from YouTube: and another link to where I was testing out if Cards work during a Hangout on Air broadcast (while it is live)... - they do!

Google Helpouts Replacement - now that the service is shut down
You can still do your own privately recorded Hangout Sessions with Clients.

Using the free tools provided and a way to invoice (I use Paypal) it is still possible to do private training/consulting/coaching sessions using the power of Google Hangouts & Events... read below for more details.

Google Helpouts Replacement
The Google Helpouts tool/system is scheduled to shut down on April 20, 2015. If you are a helpouts provider, you can run your own...

I created a way to do private online consultations using Hangouts and Hangouts on Air long before Helpouts ever existed ...and it still works today.

My Hangout Mastery membership group has had access to this method for quite some time and you can too. I've got a 1 hr. training session showing you all the steps required and it includes other member's Q&A as well as their other ideas on what works for them.

Here is the link to get right to the training:

As a member, you gain access to the above and much more
Besides that training session there are many more you'll have instant access to as a member. Plus you'll be able to join into a wonderful private community of HOA professionals that exists to help each other keep up to date on various items all related to Hangouts and Hangouts on Air (HOA).

The membership is a month to month system which you can cancel at any time. Right now the investment is $47/month. Check out some testimonials from members here: or ask anyone you know about Hangout Mastery. Learn more at the home page via

You can do your own private training sessions using Private HOAs. The systems you relied on via Helpouts are going away so why not learn how to use what we already have from Google for free. BTW, I use Paypal to collect payment for my training sessions and that is also discussed in the training referenced above. The one thing that is missing is the 'directory' site where people come to find you.
