Google+ Brand Page has proved to be very powerful & fruitful to me You can checkout my followers on it https://plus.google.com/100566414147290579544. Also you can put a Google+ Brand Badge Button to your desired webpage for e.g you might've seen "Online Degrees is on Google+" you will see a follow button next to it.

I like your products Jim. My wife keeps suggesting we should re-do our columns in stone.

These don't look too hard to install, are they easy or do I need to hire someone?

I'm sorry guys, I started this post but never got a notification until today that anyone had posted so I assumed there was no interest. I'll go back to manually checking threads.

Sorry about the shortened link, I guess I was in twitter mode. Here's the full link

I added you guys to my circles, here's mine.

Your posts though don't seem to be "catchy". I mean, many sources say that people are not really interested in seeing sales pitch on these mediums, instead something they can engage.

Do you see responses?

In which way are they "fruitful" to you?

Thanks.

I'm wondering how much interaction (comments, really) do you guys get on your Google+ pages? And if you don't get much interaction, do you at least get clicks back to your site?

I work on a few different websites, and none have Google+ pages, but I'm considering that as a new option for us.

Stacy G - I am starting to see an uptick in comments, +1 activity and definitely a viral increase in people within my circle (over 300 for my marketing tools page now).

All that has an impact on your Google search results so it is worth it. I don't believe you can track uplift in traffic in the organic search results related to your circle yet, but I do see referrals directly from my posts.

Like any social media outlet, it takes time to build the presence and see the impact. But Google is putting a lot behind this and I really don't feel like you should sit on the sidelines. There is nothing worse than being in catch-up mode later.

Here is my G+ page:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/114835964625426883708/

I am following everyone on this trail either as Diane Seltzer, Small Business Marketing Tools or BoaterLifeOnline (depending on the relevance). Thanks!
