Description: How to use Google+ communities to connect with influencers
If you need to connect with influential people as part of your marketing strategy, no other social media property will give you better traction than Google+ and its Communities. As business people abandon Facebook for Google+, they’re often confused about where to start, where to spend most of their time and how to make the best contacts.
