I have set it up but need to add the particulars, such as photo. And of course read more about it too. What I do love is if you find a typo in an update then you can correct it. And of course with it being a Google product I am sure the public updates will help with SEO.
I have set up a page, don't see much different between Facebook pages though... but will give it a go and see. I'm not particularly happy that it won't let me upload my logo properly, no matter what size I upload I can only get part of it to show up. But anyway...
I believe Google+ pages are great for some businesses, and will be suggesting it to some of my clients. But as a location independent business, I'm not sure it is right for me. Plus, I have enough social media networks to keep up with as it is!
What are everyone else's thought on this? Would love some feedback to think about.
Personally Gladys I don't see it adding much benefit to my business - my Facebook page certainly didn't which is why I ditched it earlier this year. But I'm prepared to give it a go and see if it's any different.
I definitely agree that all social media channels aren't great for all businesses and you have to pick and focus on the ones that are right for you -in my own case twitter and Linked In are fabulous.
