Use Google+ Hangouts to boost your business

Google+ Hangouts let you do cheap teleconferencing for up to ten people; this includes using live video as part of a demonstration. Hosting a Hangout on a subject relevant to your business is a great way to:

  • Demonstrate a new service or product
  • Get feedback from your customers
  • Increase brand recognition
  • Build a stronger following
  • Enhance your position as a leader in your field

All Hangout conversations are saved for future reference, letting you revisit shared ideas and images.

How to get more Twitter followers

Looking at this hefty article on Moz, if you want to get more followers on Twitter you need to be strong-headed, ruthless, proactive and somewhat egocentric.

Of their seventeen suggestions, here's my favourite bits:

  • Start a conversation - ask your followers something meaningful and create a dialogue that will encourage others to participate
  • Look good - having more followers than friends tells potential followers that your Tweets are compelling
  • Engage unreciprocating friends - if you follow someone but they don't follow you back, start a conversation with them
  • Tweet regularly - once or twice a day is fine
  • Reply quickly - this means having your Twitter client open all the time to catch @mentions
