Google+ has been neither the disaster that everyone expected nor the roaring success that Google had hoped. It isn’t the ghost town that some reports would have you believe but it adoption by everyday businesses is slow.
What we do know is that Google+ is likely to be important in the coming years and if you haven’t signed up yet or got your business on there you need to get cracking.
What follows is a list of Internet Marketing folk that I believe should be in everyone’s circles. They have been picked based on a number of criteria (not everyone fulfils all of the criteria – but they often get close!) and it is important to point out that this isn’t just a list of the best known…
- They post on Google+ on a regular basis
- They share cherry pick and share only the best content
- They can teach you a thing or two about most areas of Internet Marketing (although a lot have specialities)
- They are generous with their time
- They are willing to interact (although most are busy) and think social media is about being social
- They don’t take themselves too seriously and are up for a laugh
- They don’t just share internet marketing content – you can learn other cool stuff to – serendipity wins!
So without further ado (and in no particular order) here is the list…click on the name to visit their stream or get the whole circle here. Also included is their own tagline from Google+ – see how they describe themselves!
