Companies are in business to make money. That’s a well-known fact. But these days there are many new and innovative ways to make a profit and one of these is by using social media sites like Google Plus. The ways that this can be done are similar to the way people have been earning money with one of the other social networks – Facebook, which is a rival of Google Plus.
Google Plus is not meant to be used in the same fashion as Twitter or Facebook. It gives members a chance to post longer things, as well as being able to use things like Hangouts to train or announce things via video chat, and Communities and Circles that help to pare down the millions of postings on Google Plus into categories that you subscribe to and therefore don’t have to read all the posts that are not relevant to your situation or desires.
Here are some of the tips on how to make money with Google Plus:
Create an Attractive Profile
Create an Attractive Profile
To start with, a business needs a well-written and attractive profile on their Google Plus page. This way they can attract lots of followers, which are similar to friends on Facebook. The more followers in your Google Plus circles, the better off you will be in getting traffic to your websites and blogs. You can also make money by posting a link to your products and services that you sell on your website.
Initially, you shouldn’t form your Google Plus account with the idea of only doing it to make money. This may sound strange, but Google Plus is all about making contacts and getting followers, building up your circles, joining communities etc. If you do all of these things correctly, chances are that you will start making money because your brand will get more well-known and you will be seen as an expert in your field.
Make Your Google Plus Account Look Professional
Google Plus is meant to be a more serious sort of social network platform than Facebook or Twitter. While Facebook seems to have more of a younger crowd,
Google Plus is mostly populated by older, professional people and businesses. That means your posts need to be written in a professional tone of voice and that your content needs to be relevant to your niche and useful to the readers.
Be sure to not only post content and information onto your Google Plus account; be sure to post the same thing on your other accounts like Facebook or Twitter.
This gets you more exposure, which could lead to more traffic and more profits. For instance, you can post on Google Plus the news about a brand new product or service that your business is offering or perhaps a link for a coupon to save money or answer questions about your product or services.
These types of things are what customers and potential customers look for and when their needs are met, they become loyal customers who help to earn you money through their purchases and through them recommending your business to their friends.
The main thing to remember is that content is still king, no matter if it is put on a website, blog, Facebook or Google Plus account. You need to be posting daily and putting in things like text, photos and videos that will intrigue and educate your followers and make them want to come back to your account every day to see what your business has to offer. If your business becomes the “go to” place for content in your niche, then it will definitely start earning more profits and therefore more cash.
Use the Google +1 Button
The Google Plus 1 button is similar to the Facebook “like” button. By posting this button on your website or blog you can get people to click on it and this gets you points in Google for ranking purposes. You want to try to collect as many Google + clicks as possible to help your business to grow and thrive. As you do this, you will definitely start to see an increase in your store traffic and therefore in your profits. Be sure to put the Google + 1 button on any other account that you own to help you to get even more clicks.
When your followers press the Google + 1 button, it can end up going viral, just like a “like” can on Facebook. If this happens, it means that many people are either very impressed by your business and what it has been offering in its Google Plus postings, or that your business has a huge problem. Make sure that for your business it is a viral event for a good reason, not a bad one and you are well on your way to making money by using Google Plus.
