Are you ready for Google+
Are you ready for Google+
Are you ready for Google+? Do you want to see how you can engage with your audiences through Google’s new social media offering? Want to work out how to integrate all your social media channels? Need to effectively evaluate your G+ efforts? Now you can do all this and more thanks to a series of morning conferences that have just been unveiled by Communicate magazine.
I spotted a link to the conferences on Communicate magazine’s website and thought I would share the info here. They are taking place from 5 – 14 March: in Bristol on 5 March, Manchester 8 March, Glasgow 9 March and London on 14 March and cost £95. The first 10 bookings for each seminar will receive a free subscription to Communicate magazine.
What can you expect?
The publication says these seminars are ‘vital’ and will look at the context of Google+, focus on integration with your existing online presence, identify the lessons from the pilot brands, and, most importantly, explore the practical aspects of how your company can use Google+ to communicate with your audiences more effectively.
What does Google+ let you do?
You can separate users or followers into different categories, view sophisticated video chat capabilities and powerful analytic tools and it’s integrated with existing Google.
But how can businesses and brands create a Google+ presence? And once they’re in, how can they make the most of the opportunity? Facebook’s business pages grew organically, allowing brands to learn from the mistakes of others, but the speed of digital turnover means that there is an immediate need for communications professionals to get Google+ right, here and now.
Who is speaking?
The speakers for each seminar will differ across the dates, but they include: Adam Vincenzini, Giles Palmer and Branislava Milosevic. Find out who else is speaking. The programme has been published and you can view it here.
Communicate magazine, the speakers and the sponsors will all be tweeting about the conference both before and during the event using the hashtag #Gplusbrands. Feel free to join in the conversation. If you want to find out more check out the information on their website here and you can register here. You can follow Communicate magazine on Twitter @communicatemag
