Why You Need To Use Google Hangouts To Get Your Message Heard, Build A Massive Following & Change The World
As changemakers we often experience difficulty getting noticed, building a following, having influence and getting our message out to millions, without spending millions like the big guys. And if you’re looking at building your world changing business on the internet, or at the very least use social media to build a following or client base, you’ll know it’s getting harder and harder to compete with those big guys.
Yet if we’re not visible delivering our all important message to the world, the world remains the same and we never reach mission accomplished.
Google Hangouts is the unsung hero for changemakers because the big guys aren’t on there in a meaningful way – yet. Now is the time to climb on board and learn how to use this platform to become a thought leader in your niche almost overnight, and build a following. Best of all you can set up any offering or message you have on autopilot so anyone, anywhere, any time can follow you, purchase your products and services and grow your social business.
What Is A Google Hangout?
There are two types of Google Hangouts, Hangouts and Hangouts on Air. Hangouts can be used for friends, family and group coaching in much the same way you’d use Skype Conference. Google Hangouts on Air, which is what changemakers want to be using, is a live broadcast to the masses.
Google Hangouts on Air is a great alternative to expensive webinar solutions plus your Google Hangout on Air is automatically broadcast live to both your Google+ home page and YouTube channel for the world to see.
