Easy to follow pictorial instructions for you first few weeks on Google Plus.  Martin Shervington keeps it simple.  Martin’s  Plus You Business Community is filled with tips to help you along your G+ journey.  Join and take advantage of the material.  Many beginners start here.

Google Plus is a different eco system.  There is a learning curve.  Don’t walk away from it.  Understand the Why of being there.  Learn the right way to use it first by listening to others, find your like-minded group and enjoy The Plus.  If you don’t know what to do yet, do nothing but the basics – complete your profile – and be patient.  Free and excellent tutorials by Martin himself are available at PYB.

From a share of this post on G+ read what Pepper Oldziey of Chapel Hill, NC, Peppergraphics Design Studio has to say.  These are words of wisdom.  A larger version of the infographic  is also on my Pinterest, here.  Questions about Google Plus and how to start?  Want to ask a question by phone – give me a call.  Some may need a guide – not a hand holder, just someone to ask a simple question.  I’ll be glad to help.  Best way to reach me for a private consultation,  email or phone.  Contact info on my G+ Profile About Page.
