For those of you suffering from social media marketing overload, the mere thought of having to consider yet another social media tool — in this case Google+ — no doubt makes your eyes roll. But with over 100 million users (many of whom are your existing and prospective customers and partners), and growing, and some seriously helpful business tools, Google+ should not be ignored. Indeed, Google+ Your Business is more than a social media marketing tool. It’s an online collaboration tool (Google Apps anyone?), an SEO tool, an analytics tool — and did I mention it’s free?

Following are nine ways Google+ can help your small business.

1. Improves your search engine ranking.

2. A plus for collaboration.

3. Video chat with customers, colleagues and media — for free.

4. Get your message to the right audience with just a click.

5. Free focus groups.

6. Good for B2B marketing.

7. A potentially powerful PR tool.

8. Can help promote brand awareness.

9. Another way to advertise promotions.

For more details on the above, as well as additional information about Google+ for business, read my article, “9 Ways Google+ Can Help Your Business.”
