How To Use Google Plus for Local Business

I get asked by local business owners all the time “How can I use Google Plus to market my business?”

After answering this question a couple dozen times, I decided to create a training video on how to do this.

In this video, I show how to:

1. Locate G+ users based on geography, industry, or both.
2. Add people and businesses to custom circles.
3. Begin sharing valuable content to those circles.
4. Watch as people begin to add you back.
5. Gently pull them into your sales funnel.

The process I outline works every time and for any business. It doesn’t happen overnight, but you can expect to see results within 30 days if you stay consistent.

Once you’ve built your targeted circle base up, you’ll have a very specific audience at your fingertips. If done properly, you will have built rapport and be considered an authority for always sharing valuable resources.

This is when you can begin to introduce your products and/or services. Subtle calls to action work very well, such as “for more information come visit my website” or “we’re running a sale this weekend and you can find out more on our website”.

This way you’re not asking directly for the sale or appointment, but instead your providing additional information about what they’ve already proven to be interested in.

I have landed several marketing clients using this method and have helped some of my clients get similar results in their respective industries. Google Plus can be a very powerful lead gen tool when used properly.

Creating Live Events in YouTube

Creating Live Events in YouTube





With the relatively new feature in YouTube, you can create a Live Event which uses the Google Hangouts On Air platform. The benefits to using these are:

– You can optimize the Hangout ahead of time
– You get the YouTube URL and the embed code before the broadcast
– You can build links to it
– You can embed it in a blog post or on a web page and then build links to those

With the ability to create the event ahead of time, you can manufacture a buzz around the event using a combination of links, embeds, and social signals. The more interest you create, the better they will rank.

I have been able to rank for some moderately competitive keywords by using this method. In fact, I’ve seen one of these rank within minutes of the broadcast going live.

Changing the Yoast RSS Feed Back to Dofollow

In this video I show how to quickly and easily change the Yoast SEO RSS Feed settings back so that the attribution links are dofollow links.

In November of 2013, the Yoast developers decided that they were going to hard code the attribution link with the nofollow attribute. And they didn’t give us an option!

Well, if you’re intentionally syndicating your content for SEO purposes and your using your RSS feed to do it, then this has reduced the effectiveness of the inbound links produced by your feed.

So I have found a way to fix this with very little effort. This video will show you how.
