Google+ allows brands to building relationships between businesses and people. Like Facebook, you are given the ability to share, promote, and measure you fan page. According to Google’s recent earnings call, as of January 2012 they have over 90 million Google+ users. This is a great sign of prominent growth and an encouraging element for companies to take this social platform seriously. Even thou Google+ is smaller than Twitter and  Facebook, analyst’s are expecting the social network to increase user base dramatically in 2012.

If you haven’t by now, hurry up and claim your business page. Even if you are in the planning stage of a future company, somebody can easily take your brands name and use it for themselves. For this scary reason alone, as soon as I register a domain I make sure I have a Twitter, Facebook, Google+ pages ready to go. Here is a handy tool to check if your desired username or vanity url is still available at dozens of popular social networking and social bookmarking websites: Namechk.com

Once you have a Google+ page, the next step is to make it appealing. Today we have some great inspiration to encourage you! Most designs include heavy use of the top five images located to the right of the profile image. As you will see below designers take advantage of this. All you have to do is upload them in a particular order. Here are just a few examples that we witnessed;

  • Showcase user submitted photos.
  • Create image gif’s
  • Advertise your new product
  • Divide one image into five parts.
  • Showcase your entire team
  • Offer promotional codes

Note: All images and headings are linked the Google+ page.

  1. I love these. Very creative. We created Elvis Presley’s Google+ page with something similar. Check it out. https://plus.google.com/u/1/107085311944359912442/posts
