After much anticipation Google has announced that Google + is now available for business. You are now able to create a Google + page for your small business. At this time a Google + Page and Google Places listing have to be managed separately. Google is encouraging all business owner’s with Google Places listings to continue managing their information on their listing but to create a Google + page to interact and engage with your customers in an entirely new way.
With your Google + for business page you can manage your circles to get the best messages and news out to all types of customers or clients depending on what that person prefers to know about your business. Keep all your customers up to date on promotions, special offers, new products and news related to your industry.
Hangouts are a fantastic way to promote your business with your customers. Use a hangout for a new product demonstration. Or use it to educate your customers on other services you offer that would benefit them.
