A sound joint venture marketing strategy includes an entry into social media. Millions upon millions of people sign on to social websites every day. Are they going to find you? At the very least, you should have a strategy and presence on the most popular social websites like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. However, Google has entered the social media arena with their new “Buzz” social platform. Here is why you should get on board as well.
Create a Google Account
Your JV business should have a Google email account. Even if it uses a domain email (i.e.: email@example.com), you can set up a free account on Google’s Gmail system. Ideally, you would want something like “firstname.lastname@example.org”. That email account can then be used as your Buzz account.
Start Following People and Businesses
Right now in its early stages, Google Buzz is much like Facebook was when it started. It focused mainly on people and individual networking. However, Facebook has expanded to become a networking hub for businesses. A business can set up a “fan” account and collect followers just like an individual.
Google Buzz is already growing in popularity, and businesses are taking advantage of the additional social networking opportunities from a reliable host. Start building your Buzz network. Those you follow get notification and can follow you back. Thus, the more you follow, the more likely you’ll get a following in return.
Post Creative Content
A status update once in a while will not build a loyal following. However, using the tools available at Google Buzz, you can promote your JV in creative ways. Write blog articles. Take colorful product photos. Produce high-quality video content. All these can be seen or viewed easily in your status updates.
The nice thing about Google Buzz is that it uses the same technology Google uses for its Adwords links. Google Buzz takes a look at the content that gets the most attention and brings it to your attention first. You can get the most relevant updates from your contacts and vice-versa.
Also, Google Buzz looks at the type of content you post and read. It will make recommendations to you based on your usage. This is also good news for your JV business. The more your JV Google Buzz accounts gets noticed, the more likely it will be recommended to others, and your network can grow without you lifting a finger.
Social Media SEO
Google now is using Google Buzz updates in their search results. The items you post to your Google Buzz account can affect your SEO. Use it wisely. Post keyword-rich status updates and blog posts. Use keywords for your photos and videos. The more relevant your Google Buzz posts are, the more likely it will get noticed in search results.
It was inevitable that Google would enter the social website market. Make good use of your social media sites, and include Google Buzz in your mix. It could improve your JV SEO and overall Internet presence.
