Google+ for Business
Google+ is the highly successful social networking platform powered by Google.
The difference between Google+ and other social platforms is that Google+ makes sharing on the web more like sharing in the real world. Connect with your friends and then divide them into different groups (‘Circles’). From here you can choose what you want to share with which group. For example - you don’t necessarily want your family to see the same photos as your friends or work colleagues.
Share, Promote & Measure
Share: Different people are interested in different parts of your business. Whether it’s breaking news, updates, promotions, links, photos - even talking face-to-face with groups via easy-to-use video chat - Google+ lets you easily share the right things with the right customers.
Promote: Help word get around. Put the +1 button anywhere you’d like people to be able to recommend your business, products or services to friends and contacts all across the web.
- Measure: How’s your page doing and how could it do better? Google+ makes it easy to learn more about how your followers’ interactions on your page affect your brand and your business.
You can sign up to Google+ directly, or alternatively, it is automatically available to you through Google Apps, all you need to do is turn it on for your organisation.
Once Google+ is turned on, your users just need to sign up at google.com/+ to get started.
Circles & Posts
Circles make it easy to share the right things with the right people, just like in real life. With circles, you can share some things with close friends and others with your family. In addition to sharing publicly or with your circles, you’ll also have the option to share with everyone in your organisation, even if you haven’t added all of those people to a circle. Circles allow you to segment your connections into groups, enabling you to share different content with different people, or everyone - your choice.
Furthermore, videos and pictures in your Google Drive are available to be shared within Google+.
Hangouts let you set up one-click video conversations with customers and colleagues alike. Get face-to-face product feedback, help customers solve problems or simply get to know them better.
Collaborate with remote colleagues on shared documents in real time, all over high-quality, easy-to-use video chat. You can even broadcast and record your conversations using Hangouts On Air, letting you reach thousands of people around the world at once.
Combine multi-person video chat with screen sharing and collaboration in Google Docs and lets you work together on projects, even when your team can’t be in the same room.
