ATLANTA, July 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- So you have a Google+ account. Now what? Until you add content providers, Google+ can look like a barren wasteland, so the first thing to do is add people worth following to a circle.

"Mark my words, the ROI of getting involved with Google+ now will be remarkable," said Sterling Ledet. "People who were early to search engine marketing and optimization reaped tremendous benefits. Google+ results will be similar, but accelerated by an order of magnitude."
While it's still too early to open an account for your business or organization, the facts are people do business with people.
"Many business people who are taking a 'wait and see attitude' before opening their personal account could fall behind. While that approach is prudent when it comes to your corporate brand, it's already the right time for people to open their own personal account as an individual and start learning how this technology will rapidly be impacting the business environment," he said.
"It's wise to start using it professionally among your business and personal network now, so when you launch your brand, you'll be up to speed. Using new communication tools effectively requires learning new skills, and the best way to gain these skills is through hands-on application and practice," he said.
"One thing that's great about Google+ is the flexibility. You can post a message publicly, so Google+ acts somewhat like a rapid-fire public blog with a much larger audience than most blogs. If you choose one of your circles or extended circles, it's more like Twitter. If you address it to a specific circle, it can function somewhat like a newsletter. It truly changes the way you communicate," he said.
