Have you heard of
Google Plus?

Do you know what a Google+ is?

Or are you asking "What is Google Plus?"

Google Plus has become the fastest growing website in history with 25 million new users in the first 5 weeks and that's despite being an invite-only beta model.


From day one, Google Plus had an intense amount of interest and a big surge in the number of registered users. As Google continued to roll out their “by invitation only” beta model, users lined up around the block and around the globe. We were astonished at 10 million, then in mid-July 2011 it climbed to 20 million, and now currently stands at 25 million.

“Facebook has approx 500 Million users but Google Plus is a mere baby in comparison and lets not forget Google already has over ONE BILLION 1000000000 users so the future is very bright for Google Plus indeed!”

“Your business needs to be part of this new social media phenomenon”

Our amazing video embedded e-book shows how you and your business can benefit from being part of the fastest growing website in history.

Why Google+ is better

Sorry Facebook Google+

"It's time for a more grown up social platform that businesses can take advantage of and that GROWN UP platform is Google Plus…"

  • Google Plus is a better service than Facebook and if enough people realize this, the result will be a massive shift in the social landscape. As a business owner your job is to stay ahead of that curve and be ready when these changes occur.

  • Google Plus provides highly effective and integrated, ground up tools that businesses can use to their advantage.

  • It's a better platform for business users as Google already has millions of advertisers using its search, PPC & Adsense features. Google Plus is a natural addition that these businesses will use.

  • Google Plus allows you to share information privately…rather than publicly unlike Facebook.

  • Google has realized that to be successful in social media, they need not reinvent the wheel. Instead, they've gone back to their greatest strength – they've looked at how that wheel works and with Google Plus have added a rocket powered engine to zip past the wheels of their complacent competitors.

  • There are three HUGE ASSETS which Google has that Facebook does not…
    • # 1 search engine market share
    • The Android Mobile Operating System
    • Google Apps

  • Google is easy and free to use. One Google Account gives you access to a ton of Google products from Gmail, Google Voice and Google Plus to Google Translate, Google Docs, Google Reader and Google Business pages. There are companies that encourage employees to open Gmail accounts so they can use Google chat to make work more efficient so Google Plus will be a natural extension to that.

  • Wider professional access. Many workplaces block social networking sites to avoid the inefficient use of time by employees. Facebook may be blocked, but chances are Google is not. This means that your business contacts might have easier access to communication through Google Plus than they would with another social network.

  • Google Plus and Google +1 offer real SEO benefits: SEO benefits are unique to Google +1 and are not available with Facebook or Twitter.

Google Plus - Taking the very best of Facebook & Twitter and making it simple to use.



Features & Benefits

    Enhanced Privacy Settings

    On Facebook everyone can see what you are doing, all your information is public! Google Plus + has privacy settings that allow you to control what information individuals will be allowed to view. No privacy issues here!

    Circles: (Facebook friend list equivalent)

    You share different things with different people. But sharing the right stuff with the right people shouldn't be a hassle. Circles makes it easy to put your friends from Saturday night in one circle, your parents in another, and your boss in a circle by himself, just like real life. Thanks to the Google Plus + drag and drop feature, this feature is especially easy to use.

  • Photo

    Sparks: (Facebook Share equivalent)

    This is so much more than sharing! Sparks has much more to offer than Facebook Share. Remember when your Grandpa used to cut articles out of the paper and send them to you? That was nice. That's kind of what Sparks does: looks for videos and articles it thinks you'll like, so when you're free, there's always something to watch, read, and share. Grandpa would approve!

  • Photo

    Hangouts: (Facebook Videochat equivalent)

    Bumping into friends while you're out and about is one of the best parts of going out and about. With Hangouts, the unplanned meet-up comes to the web for the first time. Let buddies know you're hanging out and see who drops by for a face-to-face-to-face chat. Until we perfect teleportation, it's the next best thing!

  • Photo

    Photos: Facebook photos equivalent.

    It's a simple photo feature where you upload your pictures and where you can view, manage and share with your contacts. Coupled with Google's expertise in mobile apps, (Android) there is a way to upload photos that you take with your phone straight to Google plus. Google also allows you to share the albums with your desired circle to make social networking safe and secure.

  • Photo

    Huddle: (Facebook Groupchat equivalent)

    Texting is great, but not when you're trying to get six different people to decide on a movie. Huddle takes care of it by turning all those different conversations into one simple group chat, so everyone gets on the same page long before thumbs get sore.

    SEO Benefits

    Google +1's are being used directly in the Google search results algorithm so they offer natural SEO benefits. These SEO benefits are unique to Google +1 and are not available with Facebook or Twitter.

    Mobile Apps - Photo Sharing/Instant Uploads

    Taking photos is fun. Sharing photos is fun. Getting photos off your phone and on to the web is pretty much the opposite of fun. That's why Google Plus created Instant Upload: so that from now on, your photos upload themselves. You don't even have to say 'cheese'!

Who is Paul Parkinson?

With over 20 years of experience in business consulting and coaching including several years working as a Senior E-Business Consultant for IBM, Paul has worked all over the world (UK, Europe, USA & China) helping blue-chip clients do better business online.

Paul Parkinson Google Plus

Viewed by many small business owners as an online marketing expert, he owns several "passive income generating" websites of his own and also partners with several small business owners predominantly within the UK holding minority stakes in their online and offline businesses.

These businesses are from a variety of sectors, including several creative industries such as graphic design, print services, SEO & internet marketing, property investment, business advisory services, translation services and online training services.

And of course this fantastic "What Is Google Plus?" site that you are now on!

In addition to advising UK business owners and also running his own income generating sites, Paul is currently working on a government funded project helping small businesses in the East Midlands of the UK work through this difficult current economic downturn, as a Programme Manager for the Business School of Lincoln University.

Paul also acts as a mentor/advisor to young and student entrepreneurs and is a highly respected "guest lecturer" in Entrepreneurship & Enterprise at Lincoln University where his subject expertise is starting and developing online businesses.

What Paul has to say

"I have used my internet marketing knowledge and my experience to build many successful and income generating websites. I have a proven history of owning successful online businesses and managing many others for other people.

I am not one of these so called online marketing "gurus" - I have been there, done that and bought the T-shirt! Unlike many of these "gurus", I don't just "talk the talk". I have extensive experience and a proven track record in e-business consultancy and I understand what you need to do in order to be successful in the online space.

I have an extensive library of fabulous testimonials from many businesses to prove that I can help businesses operate better. I actually "walk the walk". I deliver real benefits to businesses that engage with me.



Graham Hunstone - Managing Director

What can I say about Paul...his understanding of the online marketplace and more specifically social media and its benefits has helped our business grow exponentially over the last 12 months or so.


He has helped us implement our social media & marketing strategy with unbelievable results. Paul’s in-depth understanding of social media has been a key factor in all our marketing efforts. We are now extremely busy and have had to take additional staff on to cope with our increasing and profitable workload.


I have been fortunate to download a copy of “What is Google Plus?” and it’s a very good learning tool indeed. As usual it’s delivered in a straight talking and easy to understand language with no fluff, as you would expect from Paul. If you are interested in Google Plus and more importantly what it can potentially do for your business then my recommendation is download it now!


Paul continues to guide me and my business and I see him as a trusted advisor to me and all my staff!






Professor David Rae - Director of Enterprise and Innovation, Lincoln University Business School

I invited Paul to run a guest session for my international Master's students on using online technologies and applications to develop new business ventures, as part of the Accelerated Entrepreneurship program I run. Here is a typical response from one of the Chinese students:


'Paul Parkinson showed a perfect example of how a business could begin in few clicks and then grow. Through him, my view on business and entrepreneurship changed. I realised how much the world has advanced, that businesses can make good use of the technology like online tools and information and integrate those with the business.'


My experience is that Paul has a very acute understanding of the role of social media and online applications for developing business opportunities, especially how to use SEO and keywords to drive Internet traffic. He has a refreshingly practical approach which avoids either being too technical, jargon-ridden or theoretical, so it works really well at a business level.






David & Jane Riley - Directors, JAD Associates (Improvement Solutions) Ltd

Due to Paul’s knowledge of social and online marketing plus his extensive network of contacts he was able to help us take our business to another level. Paul is very dynamic, knowledgeable and fun.  If you need to know something, it will be rare that Paul doesn’t know the answer. However, if there is something he doesn’t know, you can be sure he’ll be able to put you in touch with someone that can help due to his extensive network.


We would highly recommend Paul as someone who is very knowledgeable about both the online environment and the small business community and how to develop and expand a small business via the use of social media.  There are certainly areas of our business that have improved to a point we could never have achieved without his help and advice."







Dave Orrey - Director of Credible Investments Ltd

We first met Paul in early 2010 following our enquiry about the Robust Futures courses being held at Lincoln University Business School. Immediately, we felt we had a lot in common with Paul and found him very down to earth and easy to engage with. It was also very clear from the start that Paul is somewhat of an expert when it comes to starting and developing small businesses (especially on the web) but more importantly, he has a deep understanding from an entrepreneurial/business owner perspective having started and developed several of his own enterprises.


Paul got us to answer a lot of searching questions to make us look closely at our business model and operations with our plans going forward, this helped us to identify 2 key potential problems and adapt our business plan and strategy accordingly.


In an age where networking both offline and more importantly online is becoming a key part of growing a business, there’s no question Paul is very well informed and connected. He has a vast array of useful resources at his disposal to bring to the table. In addition, he is a guy who can add huge potential value to any aspiring business along with plenty of enthusiasm and encouragement. Paul is undoubtedly a good all round decent guy to have on your team.




Adam Carter - Managing Director

We would highly recommend Paul as someone who is very knowledgeable about both the online environment and the small business community and how to develop and expand a small business via the use of social media.  There are certainly areas of our business that have improved to a point we could never have achieved without his help and advice.






Jeremy Heath & Helen Burlefinger

As a go-ahead SME looking to enter a new phase of growth, we have had a very positive experience of dealing with Paul and his team.


We needed a structured short-cut to analysing our current market position and creating a strategic plan to achieve a significant increase in sales volume. 


With Paul's help and guidance, this has been achieved in a remarkably short space of time partly through the effect of social networking and social marketing - but with the valuable add-on that his advice is still available to us as we prosper and grow.





Lesley Pashley - Managing Director, Redlime Marketing

Paul has restored my faith in business advisors – he quickly grasped the issues relating to my business, made me look at the business from a different perspective and gave me great, commercially-minded, advice. We are continuing to use Paul to review some new business ideas and, without a doubt, consider his time and input especially around social media and social networking to be invaluable.”






Karl Sergison

I’ve found Paul invaluable when it comes to advice on how best to move my business forward. I run a small deli, restaurant and cookery school and Paul helped me with some great ideas on marketing, specifically designing, building and marketing a new website.
In addition he developed a social marketing plan for me and he also put me in touch with other people to help me along my merry way. His knowledge of all things online including social networking is excellent!


I have no hesitation in recommending Paul, his team and services to other businesses.
Best of luck Paul and many thanks again for all your help!
