Google+ Pages

Google+ is an online sharing and social platform with elements in common with Facebook.  One of the main differences however is that you can have 1 profile and manage many different types of interactions with ease.  Pages is the business version and is similar to Google places.
Our friends over at hubspot have compiled a brilliant start-up guide so head on over and grab yourself a free copy http://www.hubspot.com/how-to-use-google-plus-for-business/
The question we are asked is - is it worth me setting-up yet another online profile for my business?
With all the different platforms out there at the moment this is a very valid point.  In fact we built our own page a little over a week ago and to be honest it does currently feel a little like talking to myself, out loud and in public!  Getting true engagement I feel will take a little time and effort.
However the effect on our online profile and most importantly our natural search results seems to be very positive and almost immediate!  So if you are able to get adding some content at least a couple of times a week (and you don't mind talking to yourself!) what have you got to lose? 
Largest search platform brings out a sharing and social platform - in my mind it's worth a bit of time to see where it goes.
Oh, and just so that I don't have to keep talking to myself please add PinkJelly Marketing to your circles!
