Google+ Events have been around for sometime now. However, many people know little about them or how to use them. Businesses know even less primarily because..well..they don’t know, don’t understand, don’t care or don’t have a clue of the power Google+ has on their digital footprint.
Businesses Have Gotta Get After It!
Most businesses just glance over the tools G+ has offered up for them to use to market their product or service. So, why Google+ Event? Google+ Events offers a unique way to bring together people. Yes, believe it or not consumers are people. The Google+ Events features is used to announce an event organized for everyone to view something..to learn something or just be together.
Now that Google has enhanced the Google+ mobile app to include Events even more people can be part of the event.
