Course Description

Are you ready to learn How to Use Google Plus? You've heard of it, maybe even dabbled with it, but do you truly know how to use it?

In this course you will learn:

  • How to create profiles and pages
  • How to completely setup your profile
  • How to schedule events
  • How to create your own meme with any image
  • How and why you should join Google Communities
  • How to use Google+ to directly email offers and information to people you may not even have an email address for
  • And so much more!

Fun Fact 1: This course is for people who are tired of being cooped up on Facebook trying to find folks that you met at some distant point in your life.

Google+ is a different type of social network. Its focus is on content more than existing relationships. That means it is a great place to share your ideas and thoughts and meet others with similar views and passions. In essence, Google+ is where you can meet new people and expand your sphere of influence.

Fun Fact 2:

Anyone who takes this course will get free access to my FAQ Webinar where I will answer, live, any of the questions or concerns that you may have in regards to using Google+.

Fun Fact 3:

The information that I'm sharing in this course is the same information that I use in my business to help local small businesses create their own social media presence and market themselves online. That means you can learn from us now and help businesses in your area tomorrow! OR If you are a small business owner, you can learn directly from us how we do things so that you can save your hard earned money and setup your own profile and pages.

Google recently released a new User Interface for Google+. Some of you have been wondering why these videos seem so outdated. The reason is that this course is mostly dealing with what is now known as Classic G+.

In this video, I show you how to access the Classic View. Much of this course is still relevant with Classic G+ - however, none of the course is applicable to the new User Interface.
