We provide Internet business strategy, consulting and coaching for local businesses. Here is my quick update on some trends for June 2011. I discuss the new Google +1 button, LinkedIN IPO, Google Offers, Quora, Google Wallet, Facebook Advertising, Google Business Photos. The entire video is about 20 minutes but it’s not important that you watch the whole thing, what’s important is that you watch the parts that you are interested in.
Full Video, about 20 minutes – go ahead press play, move it to the background and just give it a listen. All I want you to get is ONE new idea on how you can use upcoming trends to improve your business.
LinkedIN IPO information and where I see the trend towards incorporating business networking into everyday life and what having a 6 billion dollar valuation means to the attention you’ll get from developers.
Quora the question and response site and some information about business building on Facebook with Facebook Ads.
The new Google +1 button, Google Wallet and Google Offers – personally this section is my favorite to talk about, Google seems to respond and pivot to new business ideas. Granted they don’t often create the ideas but they do tend to add credibility and muscle to the marketplace.
Google Business Photos – If you have a local business that has an interior that customers should see, like a gym, a bar, restaurant, massage, tire store or any other retail establishment. Check out this section.
