3 Google+ Tools to Boost Your Marketing

February 14th, 2014

OK, I’ll admit it. Despite being ‘active’ on Google+ for a while, I still haven’t got to grips with it yet.

How about you?

Are you making the most of it?

Probably not.

My lack of Google+ knowledge got me searching for some answers. I wanted to know how to link my Google+ account with my other social media accounts. After all, it’s relatively easy to link the others up, especially with flexible tools such as IFTTT. There had to be a similar solution for Google+.

My search took me to SocialMediaExaminer and their post about 3 Google+ tools that take your marketing to a new level.

For sharing your posts, it looks at Chrome Do Share and Friends+Me. As I don’t use Chrome I thought I’d check out Friends+Me. It is fairly easy to set up giving you different scheduling options, the option to selectively publish posts and it allows the integration of tracking links. The free option allows you to link 2 social media accounts and there are various paid options to link more.

That’s all well and good, but how do you know whether your Google+ posts are being effective? Well, that’s where their third tool comes into play.

Steady Demand provides analytics for Google+. It shows you what’s working on your page, graded using 3 criteria: post length, mentions and hashtags.The pro version of the tool analyses the activity on your Google+ business page.

All in all, these 3 tools will give you the edge when it comes to using Google+ as part of your marketing strategy.

Thanks SocialMediaExaminer, another informative post.
