Google+ to start business version

Today, Google announced to have set their internal deadline for the launch of the business version of their new social network Google+ for this Friday (July 22).

Within this new platform, companies will be able to present themselves with a special Google-Business-Profile. Like with the “normal” version, Google at first will start to open the business profiles only to some companies that become test users. Google itself selected the few firms that will join the Google+ project for businesses from the start. For all other companies Google strongly recommends to not create business profiles within the “normal” version of Google+. As with celebrity fake accounts, Google unmistakably announced to delete all these profiles to prevent misusage. Still companies like Ford Motors or the Sesame Street are already frequenting Google+ with personal/private profiles, officially declaring to experiment around with the new social site.

In the meantime, the exact functions of Google+ Business are not yet clear. However, if one imagines the potential opportunities such as an easy communication directly with target groups (after having seperated different customer groups in different circles), the enormous possibilities become clear. In contrast to Facebook, in Google+ marketing activities can be much better managed as relevant customer groups can be identified more easily and therefore can be attracted more efficiently via posts in the respective circles.

For all companies having not been selected for the first public test phase – just stay relaxed. As Google is improving its products continously, the official launch of the self-registration function will be opened up completely during the next couple of weeks, for sure.
