Promote Your Business With Google+

First of all, what is Google+? According to Martin Shervington who runs his own successful marketing business in the UK and the USA "Google+ is something different". For business, Google+ helps you attract new customers and to improve your relationships with existing ones by making it easier to connect with people who search on Google. When taken as part of the total Google offering, it provides a far reaching social network that helps your Google search engine rankings if you have a Google+ account. This is probably because Google are the king of "search". They have all the data to know what people are looking for, how they look and what results they like, which ultimately gives you market trends. Google+ brings people together through three simple tools (1) circles (similar to twitter lists); (2) communities (similar to Facebook Groups); and (3) hangouts or chatrooms with Skype calling capability.

Business Advertising - Are You Doing it Right?

When General Motors introduced the Chevy Nova in South America, they apparently were unaware that "no va" means "it won't go." Eventually the company figured out why it wasn't selling any cars, so renamed the car in its Spanish language markets to the Caribe.

The American Dairy Association's huge success with its campaign "Got Milk?" prompted them to expand advertising to Mexico. It was soon brought to their attention though that the Spanish translation read "Are you lactating?"

Although advertising mishaps are amusing and make us laugh, it isn't something that you want your business labelled with. If you are spending time and money on advertising then you want to see results, right? ... more customers, more sales, and of course more money in the bank!
