Google+ launched their business pages early November. In an article for the New York Times – Bradley Horowitz (Vice President Product Division Google Plus) said that brands have taken notice of the huge marketing potential and will certainly build their marketing plans around it. Now is the time to get on the Google Plus bus. The social networking platform of Google Plus is set to explode in the very near future. This is especially true as far as marketing are concerned. I predict this will become the larger of the two Giants.
Google Plus is a completely new market and will prove to be the key weapon the search engine giant will use to achieve its goal. The question remains if this new network, with its improves feature set, will get to beat Facebook? Only time will tell. Meantime we encourage you to set up your business page with them. This way you will be able to make full use of the power within Google Plus.
