Monday, Google+ allowed a long requested element to their social network. #Marketers and #advertisers have been waiting to align their respective publishers and clients on the fastest growing social network. The addition of #pages will be good for advertisers and marketers, in that, now #Facebook and #Google+ will offer more features and hopefully the ability to allow for direct advertising through their networks. The Google+ users will win as well as they will be able to interact directly with their favorite brands, organizations, and bands. Love it when the consumer wins and the marketer can offer more products. #Winning
See below for a few recognizable #brands that are already setting up their presences on Google+
Do you think Google+ is too late, and the majority of #organizations will not want to focus on updating their Google+ page and their Facebook page? Will you be setting up a Google+ Page for your business? Will larger online retailers be able to make a presence for the holidays this late in the season? Target seems to be without a page yet, and Walmart.com is stagnant. Amazon.com seems to be "winning" right now.
Let the race begin!
