Deciding whether or not Google Plus for business is the right direction for your brand is no easy feat; with so many different opinions on the social network, it’s difficult to decide which way to go. However, there are a variety of very lucrative features that come with utilizing Google Plus, so hopping on the bandwagon might be the best choice. Here are just a few of the main benefits of Google Plus for business:

Communities – The Communities aspect of Google Plus allows a brand to interact with users on a hyper-targeted level. Aside from creating a community of it’s own, your brand can connect with users by posting in relevant Communities to broaden the scope of focus.

Hangouts – Taking advantage of Hangsout in Google Plus is a 21st century approach to product marketing unlike anything we’ve seen prior. Instead of simply offering a product or service, using Hangouts to stage a webinar of sorts where users can tune in to see how a certain aspect works or to gain broader insight is quite powerful.

Search – Probably one of the most important aspects of Google Plus for business is the searching aspect. By having a Google Plus presence, the search engine gives enhanced results when your brand’s page comes up that includes a photo and name, which can prove so useful in the grand scheme of daily searching.
