Small Businesses that Rock at Google+

google plus

Regular social media use is becoming more and more important for brands and especially for small businesses. It’s common that you’ll see a brand start using Twitter and Facebook first because they’re the most used social channels. However, many brands ignore Google+ because it is not viewed as “popular.” But, if you want your brand to succeed in the social media space, you should consider G+ one of your greatest assets.

Why use G+?
G+ allows you to join communities, interact with potential customers and share content that will help people who are researching your company learn more about your business. Not only that, but G+ is an asset for helping your business show up closer to the top in Google’s local search results and it allows customers review your company.

Now that we’ve established why we should be using G+, here are a few small businesses that you can model your page after and why we think they rock at Google+.
