Google Plus Open for Business

November 16th, 2011
Google Plus Open for Business - Envigor

Ever since the launch of Google+, we have been anxiously awaiting the release of Google+ Business Pages. As of November 7th the wait officially ended and Google+ is now open for business.


What is Google+?

In case you’re new to the Google+ scene, it’s the latest social networking site that combines user profiles, microblogging, messaging and much more to create a platform for users to interact with others. The new social site that rolled out earlier this year, is similar to Facebook in that you can create “Circles” of contacts with whom you wish to share information. Users are also able to recommend content by clicking ‘+1’, similar to Facebook’s ‘Like’.

Google+ also has many additional features such as Sparks, which suggests popular content based on user recommendations; Hangouts, which allows you to connect with your friends via video and chat; and even games such as the ever popular Angry Birds. To learn more information about Google+, be sure to check out the site.


Why join another social networking site?

For those in charge of managing their business’ marketing and communication efforts it’s a no-brainer: more free exposure and the ability to access more of the market. Companies that target the young and tech-savvy crowd can especially benefit from developing a presence on Google+.

Other benefits that Google+ offers:

Direct Connect – With Direct Connect, users will be able to add a ‘+’ in front of your name in a Google Search and easily find your company when searching.

SEO – According to Dennis Troper, a Product Management Director of Google+ Pages, all of the +1’s that your company receives will count towards your Google Search relevancy. This could mean a higher ranking in the results pages.


Let us know your thoughts…

What are your feelings on the capabilities of Google+ and do you think it will give Facebook a run for it’s money?

Don’t forget to add Envigor to one of your circles!

Andy and Amanda of Envigor Design were amazing to work with in designing our new website. We continue to use them for print materials as well. They clearly layout the process and work very hard to make everything very easy. They continue to exceed our expectations!

The White Lake Area Chamber of Commerce highly recommends Envigor Design! It has been a great experience working with Andy and Amanda as they designed and created our new logo and website design. They listened to what we needed in a site and have responded in a timely manner to complete the project. We are very proud of our beautiful web site plus it is user friendly for our members, community and visitors. They are both very communicative, patient, innovative and professional. We enjoy having a continued working relationship with them still today!

I was referred to Envigor from another website developer that couldn't help with our project. Andy and Amanda were great to work with - heard what I was asking for and put it out there. The support we've received since going live has been great. I would and have recommended them to others!

They were fantastic - by , July 18, 2011

I found Envigor through a side project they did on Etsy. I was looking for a designer for a website and marketing products. I'm on the complete other side of the country from Envigor. They were fantastic. I've never worked with a graphic designer before, but I can't imagine the process going any smoother than it did. It felt like Amanda was beside me as I opened my business. She was smart, professional, and put up with my mood swings gracefully. (I would like the logo one day, and then email her back the next day saying I didn't.) I could not have asked for someone more responsive. Emails were always answered immediately, with usually more information that I expected. Envigor delved pretty deeply into what kind of branding would best play to my business's strengths, and created something beautiful. I can't recommend them highly enough.
