Did you even know that you could have a Google Profile?
It looks like Google’s attempt at a Facebook profile. You can have a profile picture, a scrapbook of other photos, personal info, etc. Like all things Google, it’s simple, clean and straight to the point. I like that you can add links about yourself, whether it be websites, articles, or blogs.
How is this personal Google profile business related?
Well, this can help you with your personal branding. If someone is searching for you in Google, if you have a Google profile, you’ll probably find yourself pretty high on page 1. Add in your personal and professional links to your profile, and you have yet one more way people can find you.
Right now, I have links to MaryAlbright.com, CanDoVA, a business spotlight page, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
Google posted in its blog that it’s working on ways for businesses to engage their customers. But for now, think about doing some personal branding and check it out.
