Tips for Getting Your Business Started on G+

Business pages – learn by visiting other business pages. Follow the ones that interest you. In fact, you should take a peek at what competitors on G+ are doing.

Circles - make a list of Circles also known as people that you might want to use for targeted marketing. Writing down these categories will spur your creative thinking.

Hangouts On Air – attend a Hang Out On Air to see how it works. Find a topic that interests you and join to listen. You don’t have to be on camera to participate in an HOA. (This will be Donna's focus at the Doable Social Summit online event)

Communities – search for Communities on Google+ geared toward your interests. Join and participate. If you want to learn more about Google+, one of my favorite communities on G+ is PlusYourBusiness created and run by Martin Shervington who is also a speaker at the Doable Social Summit.

Why the Halftime theme Mike?

I’m a Indiana Hoosier native where basketball is the top sport. Every team heads to the locker room at halftime to evaluate the first half and create a updated plan for the second half. That plan includes adjustments based on reviewing what worked and what didn’t.

The “halftime” is a key review point where the game stops, the team pulls away to huddle in the locker room away from the fans, and they come out prepared and ready to succeed in the second half.
That’s what this podcast is all about, taking the time to pull away for bit to evaluate, learn, and set some strategies for your business to succeed in the second half. Join me by subscribing and let me be your “business halftime” to help you find great success going forward!
