But before I jump into the details, let me say this. Imagine a free video presentation service that doesn’t require any special software or technical expertise to use. Now imagine that you can have an unlimited amount of people watch your presentation live on the web. Well, that service is Google+ Hangouts On Air.
How do you get started?
To host a Google+ Hangout On Air you’ll need a Gmail account, a Google+ account, and a YouTube account. You’ll probably want a quality microphone and headset, and of course you’ll need a webcam and some good lighting.
Google+ Hangouts On Air has lots of cool features that a smart marketer can take advantage of like a screen sharing feature, a slide sharing feature, and the ability for viewers to rewind a live broadcast. You can even create a custom HOA interface. Plus, after the Hangout is over, the video recording is automatically uploaded to your YouTube account.
Hangouts on Air has the best qualities of a traditional webinar plus cool extras like the ability to host a panel of discussion with up to nine different experts or edit the recorded broadcast. A live player of your broadcast will be posted to your Google+ Home page and YouTube channel.
Which brings me to…
5 ways Google Hangouts On-Air can help you grow your business
1. Boost prospect engagement
Build stronger connections with prospects and customers using Hangouts. When people get a chance to interact with you live, ask questions, learn something, or get a problem solved that creates a connection. It also positions you and your business in a favorable light. You can even use feedback you gained from the Hangout to improve your business.
2. Get better leads, make more sales
Generate high-quality, targeted leads. Or, convert existing leads to sales. Webinar presentations are great for lead generation and boosting sales conversions.
3. Use HOAs internally
Use Google+ Hangouts On Air as a collaborative communication tool within your business. Anyone working with virtual teams will appreciate the ability to interact face to face, while sharing information in real-time.
4. Boost your SEO & visibility
Google+ Hangouts On Air will definitely give you increased visibility. Even people who miss the live presentation will be able to search for and view the video later on YouTube or your website. And since video content is 53X more likely to appear organically in searches, it can’t hurt to have a few Hangouts posted on YouTube.
5. Make Google+ Hangouts On Air part of your content strategy
You’re developing video content that you can use in multiple ways later. You can share it, sell it as a standalone product, use it to generate opt-in leads, embed it on your website, and more.
