Why Businesses Need to Invest in Google+ 📌

Just in time for Small Business Week, +Ethan Hays published a fantastic article on +Social Media Today that does a great job outlining exactly why you and your business need to invest time and resources here on Google+.

Here is a key takeaway from the article...

"Despite doubling in size year-over-year, its (Google+'s) active user base is still comparatively small. And that's actually great news for you and your business, because 'small' is a relative term. Google+ has 29 million unique monthly users on its website and 41 million on smartphones, with some users overlapping, compared with Facebook’s 128 million users on its website and 108 million on mobile devices, according to Nielsen

And this 'smallness' means there's still green field for developing an audience and connecting with them. There are a lot of influencers active on the platform right now, and because there's less noise, it's much easier to establish relationships..."

+Ethan Hays goes on to discuss the advantages of Google+ as the underlining fabric of the entire Google product ecosystem, as well as some new marketing opportunities created by +Post Ads and Hangouts.
