San Francisco, CA, Nov 11, 2011
Involver chosen to kick-start platform ecosystem that will give brands unprecedented reach, social exposure, and targeting
NOVEMBER 11, 2011—(SAN FRANCISCO) — Today Involver announced that it has been selected to participate in the launch of the Google+ Pages trial. Involver has been instrumental in driving the growth of massive ecosystems that surround other social platforms like Facebook, and will help brands leverage this new opportunity to engage consumers, drive lead generation, and amplify brand awareness on Google+.
Google+ Pages represents a great opportunity for brands to have a home for new and different interactions and engagement with their customers, to get more value from their existing Google ad spend, and to have a better approach to the stream that will support segmentation and targeting, along with better reporting through analytics.
“In October, Google+ announced that over 40M people had created profiles – that’s a pretty interesting thing for brands,” said Roland Smart, Involver. “The demand is clear on the brand side – they’ve lined up to get access to the platform, and there is an opportunity for brands to demonstrate leadership on Google+ with clear positioning, and effective engagement from the beginning. We can help brands create great experiences for customers that, because of Google’s SEO implications, can drive significant return.”
As social media further infiltrates the marketing mix, it’s critical that brands understand the differences between each network, how people use each network, and how they prefer to engage with brands. Ecosystem partners like Involver will be instrumental in helping brands to understand the most effective ways to operate within Google+ Pages
“Particularly compelling to brands is the value to be gained from Google+ Circles,” continued Smart. “Circles let brands target messages, and even more importantly, let them retarget messages. Case studies show that retargeting can deliver massive ROI, so optimizing presence on Google+ Pages will be key for brands.”
